WEEKEND-16-9-16
The Hands-on Museum was never meant for just kids. Take it back with some adults-only discovery. EMU’s Fermentation Science department will be there talking about the science of hard cider and, of course, there will be some to taste too. All in the name of science. -JB
Hands-On Museum, Ann Arbor, 
Fri, Sept. 16, 6:30pm
Name a comedy star in the past five decades and there’s a good chance they got their start at Second City. The improv delegation from Chicago is here in Ann Arbor for “The Free Speech – While Supplies Last Tour” to take on the election. You might even catch the next great presidential impression before it hits SNL. Also runs Saturday. -ZM
The Ark, Ann Arbor

Let someone else channel your frustration about the current state of American politics, live on stage this evening. Expect Daily Show alum Lewis Black to tear into the news-media as well as our two choices for who’s going to be the next president. The laugh-cry paradigm is rarely as poignant as during a Lewis Black show. -SF
Michigan Theater, Ann Arbor.
Fri. Sept. 16. 8pm, $39-$49
The G.O.A.T. of women’s soccer stops by Ann Arbor to promote her new memoir, “Forward.” Hear her discuss everything from her World Cup triumphs to her passionate advocacy of women’s and LGBTQ rights. How often do you get to hear someone who was the best in the world at what they do? – ZM
Rackham Auditorium, Ann Arbor.
Sat., Sept. 17, 7pm, $10
While cannabis is used to treat illness in humans with aplomb, treating pets with the plant and its derivatives spurs questions. Let Bloom City Club’s cannabis experts lay answer your questions about pain treatment for pets so your dog or cat or reptile (if you’re one of those people that considers reptiles pets) can be the best version of itself. -SF
Bloom City Club, Ann Arbor. 
Sun., Sept. 18, 6pm.
