The Social Connection scans the cultural horizons of Detroit and plots to add an extra dose of fun to all it has to offer. One example: Gears and Beers Tours take participants around the city's bars and historic neighborhoods. For more than a decade, The Social Connection has been putting together viewing parties all across the city, in glamorous spots such as chartered yachts, rather than just in houses with their roofs sawed off. The other 364 days of the year, the team stays just as busy putting together network-expanding events such as dinner parties, pub crawls, and craft-liquor tastings.
Detroit's most fabulous theatre company, The Ringwald, is located in the "Times Square of Ferndale." Resident theatre company, Who Wants Cake?, is thrilled to have a home to produce work that will blur the lines between race, income, race, income, religion, and sexuality.

Como's has been a Ferndale staple since 1961, long before pizza ever got its own U.S. Cabinet department. Now generations of Como's fans file through the restaurant's bright dining area daily?even until 4 a.m. on some nights. There they fill up on deep-dish and round pizzas, more than 20 different pastas, and around 30 house specialties loaded with meat, including chicken parmigiana and beef cacciatore. Aside from the food, events throughout the week make Como's a go-to spot for fun. The calendar features karaoke nights, holiday-themed parties, and even the occasional pub crawl.
With its unique decor and handcrafted specialty cocktails, The Bosco exemplifies class without pretension. According to Metromix, the premises evoke nature inside and out, with decorative trees and a courtyard adorned with waterfalls. At the bar, mixologists create specialty martinis that incorporate fresh fruit juices, simple syrups, liqueurs, and chocolate shavings. Later in the evenings, live DJs spin eclectic tunes at lounge-style events, and patrons enjoy amenities such as valet parking, bottle service, and a direct landline to the president.
Housed in an open, peaceful space, Serendipity Yoga offers a variety of classes for yoga enthusiasts or for those hoping to increase flexibility without the negative back talk of a medieval stretcher. Vinyasa classes focus on the inhalation of oxygen with each movement, creating a coordinated dance between breathing and posing. Traditional ashtanga yoga enhances concentration and calm with a series of linked postures, whereas hot vinyasa yoga places students in a heated room to release toxins, increase flexibility, and keep ice-cream trucks in business all winter long. Because there are no prerequisites for any of Serendipity's classes, the expert instructors will tailor each movement to the individual student's level. Check out the schedule for class times.
