The coming of a Wahlburgers to downtown Detroit (as one of six metro Detroit locations) is causing a lot of buzz in the city.

Over the weekend, Actor Mark Wahlberg, who is also part of the Wahlburgers chain and appears on the “Wahlburgers” television show, did a press appearance at their new Greektown location on Monroe that’s under construction.

He said that it’ll be four weeks until the Wahlburgers is ready to open, and he encouraged people to head downtown and hang out. The city is definitely abuzz with the Transformers 5 filming and the annual set of events that happens.

“We’re shooting the movie in town we’re going to be down here every night hanging out, come on down,” said Wahlberg. You can see him in the video above.

Mark Wahlberg owns the chain with his brothers Paul Wahlberg and Donnie Wahlberg, who is also an actor.

That would mean the opening is coming in last week of July, for you Wahlburger fans out there. It’s part of a greater plan to expand to 118 Wahlburger locations.

The new Wahlburgers in Greektown will be at 569 Monroe Street in downtown Detroit.

Among those hoping the Red Sox could avoid a four-game sweep at the hands of the Chicago White Sox was Donnie Wahlberg, who was cheering for the home town team from sweet seats near home plate. Wonder if the “Blue Bloods” star stopped into the Wahlburgers around the corner from the ballpark.

Indian Motorcycle, America’s first motorcycle company and proud sponsor for the second straight year of the Veterans Charity Ride to Sturgis, released further details about the 1,776-mile, multi-state tour that uses Indian motorcycles as therapy for wounded and amputee veterans.

The Veterans Charity Ride to Sturgis hand-selects veterans from all branches of the military to experience motorcycle therapy on Indian motorcycles, trikes and Champion sidecars while riding from Los Angeles to the Sturgis Motorcycle Rally in South Dakota. For 2016, 20 deserving veterans and veteran mentors will join the ride.

“I’m so grateful to the participants in this year’s ride and all our veterans for their service to our country,” said actor, producer and Indian Motorcycle enthusiast Mark Wahlberg. “This ride is a wonderful opportunity to support each other and enjoy the natural beauty of this great nation.”

With their bulging muscles and Boston accents, the Wahlberg brothers have a reputation for being one of the toughest sibling acts around – but that didn’t stop Donnie Wahlberg from tearing up when reminiscing about their humble beginnings.

While being interviewed with his New Kids on the Block bandmates by his wife Jenny McCarthy on her SiriusXM show, the singer, 46, got emotional recalling how Mark, 45, credited him for his success during the band’s 2011 concert at Fenway Park.

“I’m gonna cry,” Wahlberg told McCarthy in front of the intimate group of fans gathered in the SiriusXM studios. “He was the original member of the band with me.”

According to the star, the memories of those early moments with his younger brother are especially important now that both are busy with their own lives and careers.

“Obviously we’re brothers and partners in business and our relationship is fine, but it’s different,” he said. “We’ve grown so far apart, just through work and career and things that are important.”

Wahlberg explained to his wife during the interview that Mark’s introduction struck a cord because it reminded him of the band’s very first show where his brother was also the one to call them up on stage.

“When Mark acknowledged that he introduced us at the first show and now it’s come full circle to acknowledging us and introducing us at Fenway, I’d forgotten that he did that,” he said of the moment that made him realize how much they had accomplished over the years.

Added the singer: “That’s what moved me. It’s the look how far we’ve all come.”

Thursday night, actor and singer Donnie Wahlberg rocked the house, raising over $700,000 for wife Jenny McCarthy’s, autism charity, Generation Rescue, at his first ever solo-concert!

The iconic Arcada Theater in St. Charles, IL hosted nearly 1,000 fans in an intimate concert experience, AND the Blue Bloods star made a matching donation of $100,000 to the foundation.

Special guests included New Kids on the Block band mates, Jordan Knight, Joey McIntyre, and Danny Wood with hip hop artists, Nice & Smooth and Naughty by Nature.

The Chicago lovebirds then brought the party back to the historic Hotel Baker, where the two wed almost two years ago, for an exclusive after party, closing the night for a cause near and dear to their hearts (as if they could get any bigger!).

McCarthy’s son, Evan, was diagnosed with autism in 2005. Wahlberg joined the board of directors for Generation Rescue in 2015.

The evening was presented by Hotel Baker, Jenee L. Polaczek, and OxyHealth, all longtime supporters of the organization.

Generation Rescue is the leading national nonprofit organization providing hope and immediate treatment assistance to families affected by autism spectrum disorders.

Wherever the New Kids on the Block are, Kristen Parness and Danielle DeCristoforo are not far behind. They go to their concerts. They’ve seen them get a star on the Hollywood Walk of Fame. They’ve even gone on a fan cruise with the band — three times.

On Thursday, their fandom brought the besties from New York all the way to the Arcada Theatre in St. Charles. Parness won the #GoHomeWithDonnie fan sweepstakes.

The win got her plane tickets for two, front row seats for a solo performance by St. Charles resident Donnie Wahlberg, VIP after-party access, and accommodations at the Hotel Baker. And she couldn’t think of a better person to bring with her than DeCristoforo.

“My husband now has a man-crush on Donnie,” Parness said. “He loves him in ‘Blue Bloods.’ When I won, he was like, ‘I’m so excited to meet him. He seems so cool.’ And I was like, ‘You’re not coming.'”

Parness and DeCristoforo met at a CD signing the band hosted during a 2008 reunion. They’ve been best friends ever since, bonding over their #BHlove (BH is short for Block Heads, a term of affection for fans of the New Kids).

“God, we just love them,” Parness said. “From ages 8 to 12 they were like our first loves. They were such a part of our life when we were little, and now they are still so great with their fans. We’ve just grown up with them.”

The pair have had some one-on-one encounters with various New Kids over the years. At one point, a member of the fan duo’s crew of friends even got Donnie Wahlberg’s cellphone number.

“Ever since we got it we’ve been harassing him on that number for free tickets to things,” laughed Parness. “But I guess the number belongs to some NFL player now.”
