Detroit Gin and Vodka Festival

Fri., April 28, 6 p.m.

Do you love gin? What about vodka? We love both of these things, so the inaugural Detroit Gin and Vodka Festival seems like our jam, plus it’s held at Eastern Market, inside Shed 3, so really, what could be cooler about this tasting extravaganza? According to a Facebook event synopsis, patrons will experience a multitude of “spirit tasting stations” that will offer a choice of mixed cocktail or “straight taste” of each brand, while schmoozing with liquor reps. Admission comes with 12 tickets, each redeemable for a beverage sample. Food costs extra, so carb loading in advance is recommended. $45

Chris Rock

Fri., April 28, 8 p.m., Sat., April 29, 7 p.m. and Sun., April 30, 7:30 p.m.

I’m sitting here trying to remember the last thing Chris Rock starred in, or even stuff he starred in when I was young, you know, in the ’90s. And he’s totally been in stuff (Lethal Weapon 4, for instance), but is mostly known for his stand-up, which has has basically been doing since the dawn of time. The funnyman is also a vocal critic of racial profiling, and often makes the subject the forefront of conversation. In an episode of Comedians in Cars Getting Coffee, he and Jerry Seinfeld two were pulled over for speeding. He later admitted that he would have been scared had Seinfeld not been in the vehicle. $50, $70, $125
