  community member   < less Ann Arbor Cooks Logo

It seems only right to enjoy popular American recipes as we celebrate the 4th of July. These favorites capture great flavor and good fun as we move into hot summer days. We'll roll out our grill and make some delicious food while you learn about grilling safety. Then we travel south for belly filling comfort food which can be enjoyed year round. Back up north so we can teach you how to make pizza dough from scratch and load it up with homemade sauce, cheese, & pepperoni. Finally to cap off this week you'll use your newly acquired knife skills and creativity to make customized sandwiches. This summer cooking camp is for kids ages 8 and up. Full participation. Register online 48 hours in advance at www.annarborcooks.com
Ann Arbor Cooks!, 5060 Jackson Road. $225/child. 734-645-1030. www.annarborcooks.com [map]

  Ann Arbor Observer tree logo   < less

R&B-inflected jazz ensemble fronted by this highly regarded young NYC-based singer-songwriter and trumpeter from British Colombia. "Bria Skonberg's new CD is like a breath of fresh air in a stuffy room. She has a voice that is pure and almost little girl in quality except on bluesy items where she displays some of the authority of Dinah Washington," says New York Jazz Record writer Marcia Hillman in her review of Skonberg's debut CD So Is the Day. "This is a totally fun album and very contagious. There is never a dull moment … most of all there is the bright, inquisitive talents and spirit of Bria Skonberg who promises to be a mighty musical force."
8 p.m., The Ark, 316 S. Main. Tickets $15 in advance at the Michigan Union Ticket Office (mutotix.com) & at theark.org. and at the door. To charge by phone, call 763-TKTS. [map]
