The quantity of charitable donations around the country always spikes in December—all that holiday cheer really brings out the giver in most people. Detroit Bar, in association with Buford House, gets on the generosity wagon this week with a special Tuesday night show dubbed Food & Mics. Three cans of food gets you in for free before 10 p.m.—and that's good for two reasons: we spent all our money on Black Friday sales and there's a lot of leftover cranberry sauce from Thanksgiving. But though it seems like we're getting the sweet end of deal with this one, all those canned goods go directly to folks who really need it. So bring four or five cans! With performances by Epademik, C4mula, Castor Pollux, a surprise guest host and more, Food & Mics is really a win-win all around.
