DETROIT — Every Friday we check out the people and places around town for 7 In Your Neighborhood and this week, we’re catching up with the Detroit Chess Club at the Detroit Institute of Art.

WXYZ’s Carolyn Clifford will be broadcasting live from the DIA starting at 5 p.m. during the Chess club's weekly meeting.

And at 6 p.m., Photojournalist John Ciolino will take you down the street to an institution in Detroit: Bill’s Recreation on 3rd street. It’s the truest sense of a pool hall, no food, no drinks… just serious pocket pool.

Bill’s Recreation is the last pool hall left in the city of Detroit.
