Founded in 1994 as a community-based recreation center, Joe Dumars Fieldhouse is a 100,000-square-foot facility that houses sports leagues and camps in addition to an arcade-equipped entertainment center and an indoor/outdoor restaurant. Dumars' value of sportsmanship lives on through league play and pickup games on one of nine basketball courts and in two full-sized hockey arenas. Camps and clinics provide activity-based instruction to little ones, and the entertainment center's mini-golf and mini-bowling areas host small-scale enjoyment without enforcing miniature-shoe rentals. After rigorous activity, guests can head to Joe's Southern Grill, an arena-themed eatery with tables made from the Pistons' NBA-championship basketball court and a kitchen supervised by head chef Bill Laimbeer.
Based on Ilene Beckerman's bestselling book and set on stage by screen scribes Nora Ephron and Delia Ephron, Love, Loss, and What I Wore unfolds the poignant and funny stories behind the clothes women wear. One hundred minutes of stories about fitting-room afflictions, bra-buying trauma, and coping with mascot-costume separation anxiety fill an experience that the New York Times describes as "a big bowl of buttered popcorn." At times heartwarming, at others heartbreaking, Ephron's loosely knit network of narratives aimed at ladies and their allies aged 11 and older shows the wry but gentle touch seen in her films When Harry Met Sally and Sleepless in Seattle.
