  • Wednesday, March 8:  The event will be “Blues in the Night” at the Meadowbrook Theater, a 2:00 PM matinee.  Ticket sales have ended.  This is a self-drive event.  No meal is included but people may want to join together for lunch before the play or for dinner afterwards. 

  • Saturday, April 29:  Our April event is a 4PM game at the Detroit Soccer Club.  Men’s Club members can buy tickets online at the Soccer Club website.  Tickets are $17 and Senior Men’s Club members will be seated together in one of the sections.  This is a self-drive event and there is ample free parking at the Soccer Club in Hamtramck.  Food is available at the game and people can meet afterwards for dinner at a restaurant of their choice.

  • Wednesday, May 24:  A bus tour is planned with the Detroit History Tours.  It's called “Felonies and Misdemeanors” and we shall learn the story of Detroit’s Cops and Mobsters! 

  • Wednesday, June 14: Our annual River Cruise will be special as we shall travel beneath the under-construction Gordie Howe Bridge!  Don’t miss this one.

  • July - date TBD:  An afternoon baseball game at the Jimmy John’s Field in Utica.   This is a self-drive event and we plan to sell at least 25 tickets which will qualify us to be “Special Guests” for a picnic lunch. 

  • Wednesday, August 9: This is our Annual Picnic and another Do-Not-Miss event.  It is self-drive to Beverly Park, and includes lunch, games and singing.  This is our only stag event – sorry ladies.

  • September – date TBD:  We shall attend the Detroit International Auto Show.

  • October - date TBD:  A tour of the renovated Detroit Train Station is planned.   

  • Remainder of 2023: November will be a House of Worship Tour and December will be our Holiday Party at the San Marino Club, our most popular event of the year.

Starting in September we hope to return to the Schoolcraft College Culinary Institute for their exquisite dinners.  They have not offered dinner to the public since 2020 due to COVID and we expect them to reopen this fall.

Special Events Committee

The Special Events Committee conducts monthly events for the entertainment and education of our members and guests.  Typical events are a bus trip to a sporting event or play, a visit to a museum or other point of interest, a cruise on one of the local waterways, and a tour of local attractions.


Each event is conducted by a three-or-four man team.  No prior experience running events is needed.  We’ll train you in what to do, and you’ll enjoy doing it!
