THE CROFOOT Scheduled for demo-
lition in 2005, Pontiac's historic
Crofoot Project (with portions dat-
ing back to the 1880s and housing
offices, millinery shops, saloons
and more) reopened in 2007 as a
new home for music and the arts.
Accustomed to hosting a wide range
of high-profile events — includ-
ing concerts, corporate receptions
and fashion shows — the Crowfoot
knows how to throw a party.
Versatility and accommodation are
the Crofoot's strong points, as the
multi-room entertainment complex
offers 20,000 square feet of event
space and professional staff plus
in-house services such as photog-
raphers and videographers, event
planning and valet parking. And
the Crofoot's six unique spaces will
set any bride and groom or bar or
bat mitzvah's mind racing with pos-
sibilities. The Ballroom & Balcony,
capacity 1,100, features a large stage, three bars, a 16- x 12-inch video projec-
tion system, huge windows for natural light and access to the private outdoor
patio; the Pike Room, capacity 250, provides a full bar, a stage and sound sys-
tem, dance lights and a view of the city; while the Crofoot Cafe, Vernor's 2nd
Floor Lounge and the Patio each have a capacity of 75 and feature a range of
styles and amenities. Next door, the circa-1920s Art Deco-style Eagle Theater
has hosted acts from Nancy Sinatra to Sonic Youth and also offers patio access.

Rick Halberg (former owner of
Emily's in Northville) and Brian
Siegel (JCC president, founder and
managing partner of Joe Dumars'
Fieldhouse and Star Trax partner)
opened Ferndale's Local Kitchen &
Bar in July 2012 to much acclaim.
While that's great news on its
own, the even better news for
anyone in the market for a stylish
event (from weddings and showers
to Shabbat dinners, bar and bat
mitzvahs and corporate events) is
Halberg and Siegel brought in Star
Trax to open the Event Center on
the floor above the restaurant. The
mid-sized Ron Rea-designed space,
which overlooks the restaurant,
offers 3,300 square feet of urban
loft vibe with 15-foot ceilings —
ideal for 150 to 200 guests — and
is equipped with two zinc-topped
bars, LED "intelligent" lighting to
glow any combo of colors, a state-of-the-art sound system and two large video
monitors. Chic Chiavari chairs, lounge furniture and custom-designed tables
are available for rent. And the menu, of course, can be tailored to each event,
offering anything from Local's signature comfort food to high-end Italian
feasts. (248) 291-5650; localkitchenandbar.com .
