Detroit’s carnival extravaganza, Theatre Bizarre heads back to the Masonic Temple for “The Summoning” on October 20th. Tickets went on sale this past weekend exclusively at the Rust Belt Market in Ferndale. For those who haven’t procured the much sought after tickets, follow the Theatre Bizarre Facebook page. They said more tickets will be available in September, around my favorite street fest of the year, the DIY Street Fair.
From the good news files.

More good news.

Speaking of food.
