HOCKEY NIGHT IN PLYMOUTH
Every winter, AKPsi Motor City hosts an evening of pizza and a TEAM USA hockey game with a private, spectacular view from Suite 4 at the USA Hockey Arena (located on Beck Rd. between M-14 and 5 Mile Rd.). USA Hockey is the governing body for organized ice hockey in the U.S. and their Team USA U-17 program is comprised of ice hockey players under the age of 17 that are in their National Team Development Program (NTDP). A limited number of tickets for this event are sold at a discounted rate for members and guests and must be purchased by the announced deadline prior to the event. This event always sells out due to the intrigue on the ice!
TIGER BASEBALL IN DETROIT
We root, root, root for the home team when AKPsi Motor City hosts a trip to a Detroit Tigers baseball game, usually in late July or mid-August. Tickets for members and guests are sold at a discounted price and must be purchased by the announced deadline prior to the event.

DIAMOND JACK’S DETROIT RIVER TOUR AND OPTIONAL ON-SHORE DINNER AT PORTOFINO RESTAURANT IN WYANDOTTE
ALL ABOARD! AKPsi Motor City members and guests attend a 2-hour sightseeing tour of popular and interesting attractions up and down the Detroit River (direction of tour alternates every year). Members and guests meet at Bishop Park in Wyandotte one-half hour prior to departure time to board the boat and pay for admission. Soft drinks, beer, wine, and a light snack bar with chips, candy, and cookies are available for cash only purchase on board.
Save room for the optional on-shore dinner at Portofino Restaurant because it is the perfect end to an outstanding afternoon aboard the Diamond Jack. Portofino’s menu offers fine Italian cuisine and seafood, Italian pastas and desserts, as well as casual food selections. We’ve tried other places but Portofino just can’t be beat for their food and superb service!
ALPHA KAPPA PSI FOUNDERS’ DAY DINNER
At New York University on October 5, 1904: “…the charter members met in the Assembly Room, 32 Waverly Place; all ten were there. They decided to set up a professional fraternity at once, along the lines of the constitution which had been presented by the Brooklyn Four Committee, and to choose a president, secretary and treasurer in accordance therewith, these officers to assume similar positions under the constitution when it was finally adopted.” http://www.akpsimotorcity.org/p/history.html
To honor the ten founders of our Fraternity, AKPsi Motor City members and guests attend a special dinner at a selected restaurant. Some Founders’ Day Dinners in the past have been at the Skyline Club in Southfield, Richter’s Chalet in Dearborn, Traffic Jam and Snug in Detroit (aka “TJ’s”), and Kerby’s Koney Island in Southfield.
