Just found out about this one.. First time this year and we'll see about the turnout. Woodbridge community garden, (across from the Pub) will be showing the Goonies out in the Garden around 9pm on Sunday. Bring a blanket and watch a movie in the park!

My favorite used book sale ever: Bookstock! Thousands upon thousands of books and media for sale at Laurel Park Place in Livonia. Starts Sunday with a morning presale for $10 admission, then at noon becomes free for eight days of the biggest variety of books you'll see anywhere in Metro Detroit besides John King Books.

It's the weekend of the epic #mosswedding. I know it's not open to the public, but still felt it was worthy to note. :)

Too right, Nikki! I don't post private events but I wish the best for #mosswedding and nothing but happiness for Erica & Matt. :D
