ou've either heard it or said it
— there's not much to do
around here on the weekends.
Sure Detroit may not be
as active a city as Chicago, New York
or Atlanta, but there's plenty to keep
us busy.
Metro Detroit's suburban hot spots
continue to be restaurants and bars in
Birmingham and Royal Oak. Some peo-
ple are hanging out at home, too, and
opting for everything from informal get-
togethers to fancier dinner parties. Many
still head for area bars, but it seems that
scene is reserved for those in their early
20s or young singles.
Emily Cohen, 27, of Birmingham is
hardly interested in the bar scene. Her
weekend plans include movies and din-
ners in Birmingham or nearby Royal
Oak with her boyfriend or a group of
friends. And, once a month, she and 8-
10 friends open their homes or apart-
ments for a rotating dinner party.
"It's another alternative to the bar
scene," said Cohen who recently
returned to Michigan after living in
south Florida.
As for the social scene down south,
Cohen mostly went to dinner and
movies there as well.
While older groups tend to shy away
from the bar scene, occasionally they
will visit a local watering hole. Instead of
going with an eye toward meeting some-
one, they hang out with friends. Kevin
Kaplan, 29, and his wife, Debra, will
meet friends at a bar, but they choose
the location carefully — someplace
where they can all talk or play pool.
Sports bars are a possibility, particularly
when there is an "important" game on.
