In a big, raftered space that's half barn, half family room, people sit down at checkered tablecloths for two things: smoked meats and fresh jokes. On weekend nights the restaurant transforms into the Comedy Zone, where guests dig into brisket, ribs, and chicken while taking in sets by touring comics. Bookers source the comic talent from outlets such as BET’s Comic View and Comedy Central. The Stock Yard aims to make the entire community feel welcome through initiatives such as helping local comics break into the business and serving a free Thanksgiving dinner for veterans and homeless and elderly neighbors.
The charm of Eaton Theatre is in its simplicity: just two screens, new movies, and fresh popcorn. Even in the shadow of big multiplexes, it's that commitment to the intimate cinema experience that's allowed the art-deco movie palace to thrive for more than 85 years. But that doesn't mean Eaton is 85 years behind, either—new owners Sue and John McNeel have doubled down on bringing the theater into the 21st Century by installing digital projectors while still preserving the vibe (and the two giant marquees) that beckon film buffs to its dark, simple rooms.

Each September, Michigan Chicken Wing Festival celebrates all things wings in a barbecue-centric send-off to summer. Award-winning pit masters flood Adado Riverfront Park, grilling up their best attempts at persuading wing enthusiasts to vote for them during the event's People's Choice Awards. Festival-goers can taste at their own pace—sampling wings from the likes of Pig In Pig Out and 2015 winner East Side Fish Fry—or they can put their chicken where their mouth is and try their hand at the wing eating contest.
Live bands, beer vendors, and local artists give folks plenty of non-poultry activities to distract themselves with. And youngins who haven't yet developed a love of wings can burn off steam in the KidsZone's game trailer, bounce houses, or obstacle course.
