Holiday Curtain Calls and Cocktails In the D


Curtain calls and cocktails in Detroit during the holiday season will make you forget all about sitting at Thanksgiving dinner with your complaining in-laws. Who can a handle the angry holiday shopping crowds, untangling christmas lights (the worst!) or how about those postcards you are forced to take family photos for to send out to people you don’t even speak to?

Holiday time is supposed to be cheerful and a celebration, is it not? But with the hectic holidays right around the corner and bitterly cold weather awaiting Michiganders; we have to warm up. What better way to do that, than with an entertaining musical or play followed by the perfect cocktail at a nearby bar. So have a seat and take a sip and forget about your holiday woes. Temporarily anyway (more rum please!).
