G Willies Bar & Grill's most popular offerings may be its deep-dish pizzas, which arrive tableside loaded with toppings such as shrimp, crab meat, and alfredo sauce, or covered with BLT ingredients and mayo. But according to Owner Barry Ludvigson, patrons would be remiss to overlook the soups and chili. The chef whips up housemade soups from scratch every day along with a Hog Wild bourbon chili that has won awards in local contests and from the chef's best friend. The kitchen staff also fries tortilla chips and pairs them with a spinach-cheddar-jalape?o dip and flame-grills thin-crust pizzas.
Guests nosh on the creative bar food during trivia nights, euchre tournaments, and karaoke sessions. Occasionally, G Willies hosts tap takeovers, when different craft breweries fill the pub's kegs with their signature brews.
Next Level's head trainer Michael Fox has trained clients of all fitness levels?from athletes to a 72-year-old nun. His versatile training techniques, or perhaps his willingness to work any soreness out of a client's muscles with a foam roller after a session, prompted Allure to name him one of Detroit's best trainers. At Next Level, he and his fellow trainers lead custom private sessions and group classes that focus on diverse workouts ranging from weight training to kickboxing to yoga. Members can always work out solo on the gym's free weights and cardio machines, too, motivated by playlists of high-energy jams or just a voice sporadically yelling "Faster, FASTER".
Each year on the shores of Lake St. Clair, massive bash Hottiefest celebrates the art of looking good with a weekend of professionally DJ’ed parties. Spinsmiths such as DJ Captn20 and DJ Godfather select dance-friendly jams that evoke all the beachy fun, sun, and camaraderie of a snowman that reincarnates in sand form to be near you again. In addition to dancing until body temperatures rise, guests can lounge in outdoor cabanas and take home goody bags full of neon-hued party favors; VIP visitors earn the added perks of bypassing the entry line and mingling in the waterfront VIP tent.

And although Lake St. Clair's Nautical Mile is their favorite spot to hit the waves, they will deliver up to five jet skis to the lake of your choice.
Before the rockets' red glare lights up the night sky on July 4, celebrate America's birthday at a party on the shores of Lake St. Clair.
