Fuel up for the weekend because LOTS of things are happening in the D!

May the 4th Be With You. Star Wars fans can get a pair of free tickets to the Detroit Institute of Arts’ upcoming Star Wars the Power of Costume exhibit when they dress up for a group photo on the front steps of the museum Friday. Afterwards hop on the Qline and get off at Canfield, HopCat is celebrating with limited edition Star Wars beers from Shorts.

There’s another reason to pull out the old Halloween or cos-play costume this weekend. Saturday is International Comic Book Day and Vault of Midnight is giving out FREE comics. You’ll be entered to win a prize when you come in costume.

The Kentucky Derby is Saturday and bars are celebrating with drink specials, games and giveaways. Get the run down of where to go in our Derby Bar Guide.

Cinco De Mayo is Saturday and the party last all weekend. Sip tequila and eat tacos downtown on Saturday and Sunday head to Southwest for the annual parade along Vernor Highway. Check out our restaurant guide to find authentic Mexican food for the occasion.

Mother’s Day is a next weekend and if you need to get some shopping in, go to Eastern Market Sunday for All Things Detroit and The Eastern Artist Market, you’ll find something special from local makers, bakers and creators. If shopping isn’t your thing, enter our Mother’s Day giveaway.
