Thursday is coming up fast, but there’s still time to grab your tickets to Arts du Jour, the food-tastic charity preview to Ford Arts, Beats & Eats.
On Thursday, August 22 from 6-10 p.m., the Barbara A. Hallman Memorial Plaza & Veterans Memorial, located outside the Royal Oak Library and City Hall, will transform into a performing arts and party pavillion.
Among the eateries offering samples—
Crispelli’s – restaurant and bakery featuring artisan thin crust pizza, pasta and more, in Berkley
Santorini – modern Greek fare in Greektown, Detroit
Town Tavern – upscale tavern featuring fresh modern American fare in Royal Oak
Beans & Cornbread – award winning soul bistro in Southfield
In all, more than 45 metro Detroit restaurants, eateries, sweet shops and boutiques will serve their finest offerings both inside and outside the library, while local bands and cultural performers take to two stages.
Ten nonprofit organizations will receive proceeds from Arts du Jour and event attendees can choose which of those organizations their ticket benefits. The recipient organizations are American Cancer Society, Blessings in a Backpack, Boys & Girls Club, Forgotten Harvest, Michigan Humane Society, Planned Parenthood, The Rainbow Connection, Royal Oak High School, Rose Hill Center and South Oakland Shelter.
VIP tickets are $100 per person. General admission is $65 per person. Arts du Jour is presented by Soaring Eagle Casino & Resort, and Beaumont Hospital.
