In 1993, when realtor Brian Brickley stumbled upon a listing for The Tap Room—a bar flooded with harsh fluorescent lights and littered with broken hunks of chairs and booths—he initially joked with his wife, Lisa, that they should buy it. But after mulling it over, Brian and Lisa discovered that they might be able to breathe new life into the property. What began for the couple as a blues venue that could accommodate up to 69 people has since expanded into a 180-person bar with two pool tables, video games, an Internet jukebox, and open-mic nights every Thursday. Beyond feeding hearts and ears with a variety of musical stylings, the Tap Room feeds stomachs with an extensive menu, inspired by Lisa's flair for cuisine.

These days, The Tap Room attracts occasional visits from celebs such as Jamie Lee Curtis and Robert De Niro, the latter of whom filmed scenes in the bar for his movie Stone, a extended dialogue between him and his pet rock. The bar also serves as a daily hub for pub-food feasts with items such as homemade chipotle hummus and burgers made with local meat from Knight's. The kitchen stays open until midnight, while music from talented regional bands blares until 2 a.m. some

Before they were household names, Ellen DeGeneres, Tim Allen, and Drew Carey were performers at the Ann Arbor Comedy Showcase. The establishment, once dubbed by Rolling Stone as “one of the best clubs between the coasts,” has been corralling burgeoning stars to its stage since its 1984 inception when it was called Mainstreet Comedy Showcase. Several nights a week, nationally touring comedians who’ve graced the stages of Late Show with David Letterman and Showtime’s Comics Without Borders share witty observations, humorous songs, and intense eye contact with brave audience members in the front row.

Founder Dr. Neil Clark Warren studied the key ingredients of successful marriages to produce the 29 Dimensions of Compatibility model. A pair of websites—eHarmony and Compatible Partners, eHarmony's Gay and Lesbian site—plug canoodling candidates into the advanced cupidean theorem, which is then solved until x equals lifelong love likelihood. Fling flings aside in favor of enduring enchantment as the eHarmony method deeply analyzes traits such as adaptability, self concept, emotion management, and taco-shell preference. They'll use their findings to determine the most likely life-loves out of more than 33 million users who vary in religious background, race, age, and location. Along with a list of matches, your membership grants you access to a safe, anonymous communication system—as well as guidance on ice-breaking from outgoing penguins.

Founded in 1991 by acclaimed actor and playwright Jeff Daniels, The Purple Rose Theatre Company enriches its community with original and classic productions that range from light-hearted comedies to poignant dramas. Resident artists elicit laughs during Escanaba in da Moonlight, a revival of Daniels's deer-camp comedy about a group of hunters competing for the first shot at a buck and the most creative camouflage pattern. Starting January 19, A Stone Carver introduces us to a retired stonemason named Agostino who resists being evicted from his home in the face of planned highway construction, even at the risk of alienating his only son. Converted from a 1900s-era auto garage, The Purple Rose Theatre Company distributes sight lines evenly throughout its 168-seat auditorium and grumbling Model T ghosts throughout its marbled 1930s-style lobby.
