Next week, a slim margin of those who can actually vote will choose Michigan's next governor, a U.S. congressman, and whether they want the state to allow a wolf hunt. Besides that, there's a number of important local races up for grabs. There's a lot to digest, but don't fret: If you're free tomorrow evening, Michigan Radio will host an event in downtown Detroit along with columnists from the Detroit Free Press and Bridg Magazine.

As part of its Issue & Ale series, Michigan Radio says the 90-minute talk will "take a fun, and fast packed look at prospects for Election 2014." Expected panelists include: Zoe Clark and Rick Pluta of Michigan Radio; Stephen Henderson and Nancy Kaffer, editorial page editor and columnist, respectively, of the Detroit Free Press; David Zeman, editor of Bridge; and John Bebow, president of the Center for Michigan. 

The event is free and will run from 6-7:30 p.m. at Detroit Beer Company, located at 1529 Broadway in Detroit. You can join the Facebook event page here
