The weekend is almost here! And it looks like the forecast is for a tasty and fun weekend. Get out there and enjoy the Motor City!

Detroit Dough Popup

There has been a lot of press about Detroit Dough which is the new cookie dough shop that will be opening in the NW Goldberg neighborhood of Detroit.

The shop might not be open yet, but that doesn’t mean you can’t get your fill of cookie dough this weekend at the Detroit Dough Popup.

Cookie dough lovers will be able to choose between Detroit Dough’s five safe to eat flavors.

The popup will take place Thursday, November 9 through Saturday, November 11 at The Detroit Clothing Circle.

Hours: 12:00 p.m.-7:00 p.m.

The Detroit Clothing Circle is located at 3980 2nd Avenue Detroit, Michigan 48201

Merry Mitten Holiday at Pages Bookshop

One of my favorite gifts to give children are books, because reading is fundamental.

If you have children in your life, be it your own or nieces and nephews I suggest going to Pages Bookshop this Saturday, November 11 to pick up some children’s books.

While you’re there there will be four local children’s book authors in the store to sign their books.

Hours: 2:00 p.m.-4:00 p.m.

Pages Bookshop is located at 19560 Grand River Avenue Detroit, Michigan 48223

P.S. While you’re there might I suggest picking up Karen Dybis’s newest book The Witch of Delray: Rose Veres & Detroit’s Infamous 1930’s Murder Mystery”. If you have yet to listen to our Daily Detroit Happy Hour podcast with Karen you’re missing out.

25 Hour Improv-A-Thon Fundraiser

Planet Ant has been working really hard to raise $35,000 to help finish the renovations on The Ant Hall, which they purchased last year.

If they raise the $35,000 by midnight of Monday, November 13 the Michigan Economic Development Corporation (MEDC) will match their donations.

In ordrer to help raise these funds they are holding a 25 hour Improv-A-Thon fundraiser.

Between 8:00 p.m. and 12:00 a.m. there will be a line up of stand up comedians and improv troupes performing.

The Improv-A-Thon will begin at midnight and will end at 1:00 a.m. on November 13.

Improvisors have collected pledges for consecutive 15 minute blocks of improv performed.

There is no admission fee, however there is a suggested donation of $5 per person. Dig deep people this is a fundraiser after all, and The Planet Ant needs your help.

If you can’t make it to the Improv-A-Thon but would like to donate to their Patroncity campaign you can do so here.

The Ant Hall is located at 2320 Caniff Avenue Hamtramck, Michigan 48212

Labyrinth With Shadow Cast

There is only one person I know that does not like Labyrinth and that is my best friend Giulia.

So unless you are a weirdo like her, you need to get your tickets to Labyrinth at the Redford Theater this Saturday, November 11.

This is a special viewing of Labyrinth because there will also be a shadow cast performing in costumes while the movie plays behind them.

Guests are also encouraged to get dressed up for a masquerade.

Children are welcome to attend as well.

Cookie dough cafe coming to Detroit

DETROIT (WJBK) - If you're the type who just can't resist the temptation of cookie dough, you're in for a sweet treat this weekend. 

A cafe selling safe-to-eat cookie dough is popping up in Midtown from November 9-11. The cookie dough is safe because it uses heat-treated flour and does not include raw eggs. 

Detroit Dough plans to feature five cookie doughs - chocolate chip, brownie, peanut butter, no chips, and sugar. 

You can try out their dough this weekend at their pop-up shop at Detroit Clothing Circle, which is located at 499 W. Alexandrine. The shop will be open on all days from noon to 7 p.m. Price: $5 for one scoop, $7 for two scoops and $9 for three scoops. 

Daniel Washington from Detroit Dough joined us on The Nine to tell us more about the dough and the shop. You can hear from him in the video player above. 

The team behind the concept has plans to open a shop in 2019 at Linwood and Ferry Park in Detroit's NW Goldberg neighborhood, which is where Daniel grew up. 

Daniel tells us once the official shop is open, it will have a whole mix-in bar with dozens of different items to mix in with the dough.

We tried Detroit Dough’s safe-to-eat cookie dough

By Kinsey Clarke

If you’re like me, you may have spent more than a few times snacking on frozen cookie dough at home on the couch, despite FDA warnings that raw cookie dough is not safe to consume. Having repeatedly ignored those warnings, I was thrilled to find out that Detroit is getting its own cookie dough café in the NW Goldberg neighborhood.

Detroit Dough is run by local twentysomethings Autumn Kyles and siblings Daniel A. Washington, Theodore Washington III, and Victoria Washington. While they haven’t opened their location at Linwood and Ferry Park just yet, they are having an ongoing pop-up November 9 - 11 at Detroit Clothing Circle, located at 499 W. Alexandrine in Midtown. 

Though the shop boasts five flavors to choose from – brownie, sugar, chocolate chip, peanut butter, and plain dough with no chips – Chief Storyteller Aaron Foley and I visited the pop-up to try just two flavors: brownie and chocolate chip. Here’s what we had to say about the experience.

AF: I had the brownie flavor, and I could easily see this becoming a guilty pleasure. It’s rich and chocolately, and none of the base ingredients (like, for example, flour or egg) overpower the actual flavor. There’s a reason why this will taste better than the cookie dough I’ll try to make at home.

KC: This is classic chocolate chip cookie dough without the looming threat of salmonella. I could definitely eat this while watching The Crownon Netflix during the long weekend. 10/10, would eat again.
