Harry Houdini’s Death in Detroit

Harry Houdini died 80 years ago today in Detroit. The Magic Stick is hosting “The Halloween Night Masquerade Ball Tribute to Harry Houdini” tonight at 8:00 p.m. The show will feature local musicians, poets, filmmakers, artists, magicians, fortune tellers, and encourages dressing up. Cover is $10.

Happy Haunting

For those of us who like visiting haunted houses, you may not know about the D’s scary place. It’s the Detroit Urban Legends house and it’s located in the 120 year old United Methodist Church.

Happy Halloween, Detroit!

Make it a safe one.


Time warp

Is it just me or does it feel like it’s at least 10 pm right now? Actually, it feels more like midnight. But, no — it’s only 5:30!

I hate to rant about daylight saving time, or, for you sticklers out there, the end of daylight saving time and the return to standard time – because I know everybody does and it’s kind of a dead issue, but it seems no matter how old I get, I’m still really effected (sp?) by it every year. My mind can’t figure out what the heck is going on.

Not to mention that it gets dark in the D so early now…

Now That’s Scary

With Halloween upon us again I thought I might share with you my thoughts on my number one scariest movie since I’ve been on the planet. This movie was so scary to me, it affected the way I watched horror films for years afterward.

Detroit trivia tidbit: Olde English D

Call me a freak for useless trivia, but I love it. This fascination goes even further when it has to do with Detroit. I know there are other Detroit trivia hounds out there, so I’m introducing a new weekly post called Detroit Trivia; I’ll be bringing you a unique fact or piece of information about the D every week. Now, onto the fun…

First up, a little-known fact about the Detroit Tigers‘ Olde English D.

Halloween Weekend

It was sweet having an extra hour this Saturday night before Halloween at the bar and clubs. There were some great costumes at the Zombie Dance Party at the Magic Stick. There were the always dependable lingerie type costumes, the undead, some fairies, Tigger, pirates, and even Edward Scissorhands. I must say I am totally thrown off by the time change and got up entirely too early this morning and now I’m exhausted and its not even 8.

Walk the Walk

There are two differences in where we choose to live. Forty percent of the people want to live in driveable places. That means high density housing and storefronts in the backyards. But another thirty to forty percent, which includes this writer, are attracted to urban living where you rarely have to drive anywhere.

Tigers Unable to ‘Eat Em’ Up’

Unfortunately the Tigers lost to the Saint Louis Cardinals on Friday, with a 4-2 final score. With the Cardinals winning 4 out of 7 games, the series is over and unfortunately the Tigers could not hold the title.

Eat Em’ Up next year maybe?
