Framed by WDET sponsored this photography show that’s focused on something we all love: hummus. The dish brings families, friends, and neighbors together in metro Detroit, a place that’s home to thousands of families of Middle Eastern descent. Photographer Marvin Shaouni and radio producer Zak Rosen curated four stories through visual and oral storytelling with 16 original prints that represent four different families. You can also listen to their stories via a mobile app. The show is on display until Feb. 5. Starts at 6 p.m.; 10345 Joseph Campau Ave., Hamtramck; framedbywdet.org; free.
It’s cold, you’re bored, and you’re sick of going bowling. Why not stop by the Planetarium at Henry Ford College for a walk in the woods. Nicely, this walk will be seated and take place indoors. You’ll get a look into the wintry sky while learning about the fiery balls of gas that light it up. Best part? It’s free. Free
We could go on about the fancy, ridiculously priced vehicles that will be on display at the North American International Auto Show, but where’s the fun in that? The Auto Show is housed at the Cobo Center, where it’s usually really hot and you have to hold your jacket the whole time. There’s generally no food in there, which makes us question why the whole thing takes place. Oh yeah, cars. Doors open at 9 a.m. daily; 1 Washington Blvd., Detroit; naias.com; for tickets call 248-283-5173; tickets are adults 13 and older are $13, seniors 65 and older are $7, and children 12 to 7 are $7 and children 6 and younger are free. $7-$13
