TV party — You may have noticed that Esquire TV's Best Bars in America has been dabbling in Detroit lately. A recent show featured Berkley's Vinsetta Garage, for instance. That wasn't the only place hosts Jay Larson and Sean Patton have visited in town. This week's episode focuses on PJ's Lager House in Corktown, and PJ and the crew are throwing a viewing party to celebrate. PJ tells us, "The kitchen will be open, the episode will play, and we'll party with sets from the Royal Blackbirds and Doop & the Inside Outlaws after the show." Pre-show drinks at 8 p.m., episode airs at 9 p.m., and live music begins at 10 p.m., on Wednesday, May 27, at 1254 Michigan Ave., Detroit; 313-961-4668; free.
