Dinner, Drinks & Entertainment: Fall Fun in Downtown Dearborn

By: Amber Ogden | October 7, 2015

Enjoy fall in Metro Detroit by spending time in a new downtown area in Metro Detroit! This month, we’re heading to Downtown Dearborn.

Downtown Dearborn is divided into two sectors; east and west Downtown Dearborn. This time around, we’ll be focusing on the west side. Here’s your itinerary:

Dearborn Music offers the latest in vinyl, CDs and band apparel. Whether you’re a fan of pop, rap, R&B or rock, you’ll likely find it sifting through the bins at Dearborn Music.

A staple since 1956, you can keep up with the latest releases online so you don’t miss a beat. Dearborn Music also buys DVDs, CDs, Blu-ray and vinyl, so you can get rid of some of your oldies (but still goodies).

Famous Hamburger is a great place to grab a meal when you’re out and about. Start with the Mac ‘N’ Chzzz Bites, followed by more than 20 different burger options (you can also build your own). If you’re feeling adventurous, go for the Ghost Pepper Burger or Habanero Inferno Burger.

Wraps, gourmet salads and entrees are also on the menu. Be sure to try the seasonal Pumpkin Spice Milkshake!

Moose’s Martini Pub opens at 3 p.m. every day, just in time for happy hour! It runs from 3 p.m. to 5 p.m. seven days a week, when you can enjoy $2 off all pints, $5 signature Stoli martinis and $4 appetizers.

There are several specialty cocktails and martinis to choose from, as well as long “tea” drinks and beer cocktails. Relax with a Jamaican Iced Tea or Limona Corona after work! The menu includes veggie spring rolls, chicken tenders, Moose Wings and more.

Dearborn Brewing just opened its doors this August, so if you haven’t been by for a pint yet, now is the time! You’ll find Cream Shandy, Amber Ale, American Wheat and Pale Ale on tap, along with several fun upcoming events.

Head to Pints and Postures on Saturday, Oct. 24 for a one-hour yoga session, followed by a pint of your choice and light snacks, all for just $20. If you’re not so flexible, consider Trick or Beer on Halloween, when festivities include face painting for all ages, beer and flight specials and light snacks.

No matter what you choose to do, have a great time in west downtown Dearborn!
