After Dark: Vintage Video Games

Thu., July 19, 6 p.m.

It may be hard to believe but your beloved Fallout, Fortnite, and Call of Duty would cease to exist without the riveting — albeit archaic and totally boring — gameplay of Pong, which would later spur the birth of a couple of quirky Italian plumber brothers, a caffeinated hedgehog, and one angry gorilla. As one of the coolest happy hours in metro Detroit, the Michigan Science Center invites gamers to drink, duel, and button smash with a wide variety of vintage arcade and console games, as well as playable games in the theater spaces and on their giant robot screen. $15

"In The Heights"

Thu., July 19, 8 p.m., Fri., July 20, 8 p.m., Sat., July 21, 8 p.m. and Sun., July 22, 8 p.m.

Before Hamilton, Lin-Manuel Miranda gave the world the Tony Award-winning musical In the Heights — a cultural story centered around New York City’s Washington Heights neighborhood and its Hispanic community. The story follows the lives of bodega owner Usnavi and his beautician girlfriend Vanessa. Then there’s Nina and Benny — a second love story defined by the price and obstacles of achieving a higher education. Reimagined by the Detroit Actors Theatre Company, In the Heights fuses freestyle rap with merengue dance for a multicultural exploration of love, family, and growing up. free

Third Thursday Speaker Series: Detroit: A Tale of Two Cities

“Detroit has been the beneficiary of one of the most remarkable rebrandings in recent history,” wrote the Detroit News’s Michael Hodges in his essay, How Detroit Got Its Groove Back. A front-page article in the travel section of the New York Times asks “Detroit, the Most Exciting City in America?” and gushes that the Motor City is “revving back to life.” But is the city’s comeback story an inspiring model for urban recovery or is it a textbook lesson on the negative impact redevelopment and gentrification has on poor and neglected communities? Let's discuss. Free
