It's a busy weekend here in Brighton. Here's a look at five fun things to do close to home:
- The hottest ticket in town this weekend is "Dave Coulier!" The Michigan native and Full House star will hit the stage at the Brighton Center for the Performing Arts at 7 p.m. Friday for a stand-up routine that proves "nice guys can finish first."
- If you're looking for a little vampire romance, stop by Borders Books & Music in Brighton for a copy of Night Betrayed. Local author Joss Ware will sign and discuss the book, set in a post-apocolyptic world, 2 p.m.-5 p.m. Saturday.
- For a night of family fun, local guys and their favorite sweethearts can dress up and hit the town for SELCRA's 22nd annual Daddy Daughter Dance, 6:30 p.m.-8:30 p.m. at Brighton High School. The event includes refreshments, music, photos and a huge balloon drop at the end of the night.
- Addicted to game shows? You'll love MotorCity Trivia, every Sunday at TGI Friday's. Grab some friends and challenge yourself to Eight Ball Trivia, WildCard Sports Trivia and Name that Tune. The free games begin at 9 p.m. and 10 p.m., ages 21 and over.
- If you think ice fishing is gnarly, imagine what it was like in the days of ice harvesting. Learn how (and why) men pulled giant ice blocks out of Michigan's frozen lakes as the Brighton Area Historical Society hosts its Ice Harvesting Exhibit through Feb. 27 at the CoBACH Center.
