From 90’s style bar crawls to stripping it down to your undies for a good cause — there’s a variety of events going on in metro Detroit that you won’t want to miss.
Here are (just a few) of the events we are looking forward to in February:
Lion King – Feb 1-26 – Detroit
The Disney Broadway spectacular, The Lion King, is making its triumphant return to the city in February. Giraffes strut. Birds swoop. Gazelles leap. The entire Serengeti comes to life as never before. And the music soars as Pride Rock slowly emerges from the mist. The Lion King will have shows Feb 1-26 at the Detroit Opera House.

Barre, Bubbles & Brunch – Feb. 4 – Ann Arbor
Join Aventura for a 50-minute strengthening barre class led by The Barre Code’s very own Adrianne Madias. Work through dynamic, full-range movements to the top 40 pop and hip-hop hits at Ann Arbor’s hottest restaurant. The 9 a.m. class will be followed by a light and healthy brunch (complete with a build your own mimosa bar!) Aventura is at 216 E. Washington Street.
Cupid Undie Run – Feb 11 – Detroit
Strip down to your undies and run through the streets of Detroit (for a good cause!) Kicking off at noon, runners will register for the Cupid Undie Run at The Fillmore Detroit then head out for a mile(ish) run downtown. An after-party will be held back at The Fillmore. Proceeds benefit the Children’s Tumor Foundation. The Fillmore Detroit is at 2115 Woodward Ave.
Onesie Bar Crawl – Feb 18 – Royal Oak
Wear your favorite zip up onesie while bar hopping throughout the afternoon with friends. Thanks to Trolley in The D, the city’s first Onesie Bar Crawl is hitting the streets of Royal Oak from 3 to 9 p.m. Feb. 18. Attendees are invited to enjoy exclusive drink specials while mingling through multiple downtown bars including Mr. B’s, O’Tooles, Dixie Moon Saloon and more. Limited tickets are available to ensure bars won’t be overcrowded.
90s Bar Crawl – Feb 18 – Ann Arbor
Okay, who planned the 90s Bar Crawl to be on the same day as the Onesie Party in Royal Oak? Because we want to attend both. Relive your glory days a the 90’s Bar Crawl – Lace up your LA Gears and slap on your bracelets – You won’t want to miss the opportunity to Get Jiggy Wit It at The Beer Grotto, Allen Bar, Good Time Charley’s and other stops along the way. The event is 2 to 10 p.m. kicking off at a venue TBD, according to event planners.
Paczki Run 5K – Feb 25 – Hamtramck
We can’t think of a better way to celebrate the day before Fat Tuesday than a 5K with the award at the end is a paczki and a beer. The annual event put on by Tour De Troit kicks off at 10 a.m. at the intersection of Joseph Campau Ave. and Hanley. Registration pickup prior to the event is at Wheelhouse Detroit, 9401 Joseph Campau Ave. For more information, visit www.tour-de-troit.org.
