The Don Was Detroit All-Star Revue, El Club reopens with a bang, and other things to do in Detroit this week

Select events happening in metro Detroit this week. Submit your events to metrotimes.com/calendar. Friday, 7/30: If there was ever a time to indulge in some hard whisky drinking, it's now ... and, well, like, the last 16 months or, for most of us, our whisky habit started on Nov. 8, 2016. With climate change raging, COVID variants popping, and K*nye West doing whatever it is he's doing, we have very few reasons to not drink. Touted as Detroit's boldest whiskey event, the Detroit Whisky Festival invites guests to sample whiskeys, bourbons, and ryes from around the world, as well as cocktails crafted by Detroit's finest tastemakers. The festival, which is returning to Eastern Market's Shed 5, offers guests 10 spirit and/or cocktail samples, which means you should absolutely enlist a DD or be ready to throw some coin at a rideshare service. Now, while the Detroit Whisky Festival is all fun and games, it's also an opportunity to shine a light on a charity. This year, the fest has partnered with Offering Alternative Therapy with Smiles (O.A.T.S.), which provides equine-assisted therapy for more than 100 children and adults with physical and/or emotional disabilities. Worried about getting a wee bit too tipsy? Nothing a few bucks can't fix, as there will be food available for an additional cost. But can you really put a cost on hangover-preventive measures? We drink not.

Is Msgr. Burrill the Tip of the Iceberg?

As a sex abuse victims’ advocate and a former Catholic seminary instructor and formator, I am led to question the validity of arguments put forward by Rev. James Martin, SJ, Steven P. Millies, and others in defense of Msgr. Jeffrey Burrill. For example, in response to Burrill’s resignation as the now-former General Secretary of the United States Conference of Catholic Bishops, Millies wrote, “This is the hook on which the ‘story’ hangs, a long-discredited link between sexual abuse and homosexuality. It is hard to call that something other than a slur and a sin against the LGBTQ+ community.” Fr. Martin wrote on Facebook that the article “repeatedly conflated homosexuality with pedophilia” and accused The Pillar of engaging in a witch hunt.

The Boy Scouts of America Is on Its Death Bed

Why a name change for the KC Chiefs feels inevitable

Over the past few years, team names and their history have gained attention from media and fans alike. Franchises across professional sports, such as the Washington Football Team in the NFL and the newly-named Cleveland Guardians in the MLB, are among the first to make a permanent change in response to troubling backgrounds and offensive meanings—intended or not.

Boy Scouts of America administers FAA’s safety tests for drones

Flying drones is a fun way Scouts can start learning about robotics, science, technology and engineering. Many camps already offer drone-flying programs. If you plan on flying a drone or other uncrewed aircraft system (UAS), whether for a Scouting event or not, you will need to first pass a test. Legislation in 2018 called for the Federal Aviation Administration to introduce new requirements for all recreational drone pilots, including passing an aeronautical knowledge and safety test and providing proof of passing the test when flying a drone.

Today in History

Today in History Today is Tuesday, July 27, the 208th day of 2021. There are 157 days left in the year. Today’s Highlight in History: On July 27, 1996, terror struck the Atlanta Olympics as a pipe bomb exploded at Centennial Olympic Park, directly killing one person and injuring 111. (Anti-government extremist Eric Rudolph later pleaded guilty to the bombing, exonerating security guard Richard Jewell, who had been wrongly suspected.) On this date: In 1866, Cyrus W. Field finished laying out the first successful underwater telegraph cable between North America and Europe (a previous cable in 1858 burned out after only a few weeks’ use). In 1909, during the first official test of the U.S. Army’s first airplane, Orville Wright flew himself and a passenger, Lt. Frank Lahm, above Fort Myer, Virginia, for one hour and 12 minutes. In 1919, race-related rioting erupted in Chicago; the violence, which claimed the lives of 23 Blacks and 15 whites, lasted until Aug. 3. In 1921,...
