Fans of "Hardcore Pawn" have a great opportunity Friday to get up close and personal with the stars of truTV's top-rated show.
The Golds -- family patriarch Les and his adult children Ashley and Seth -- will open the doors of their Detroit-based American Jewelry & Loan pawn shop for a special party, Hardcore THAW.
The Golds told the Free Press that Friday's event, which runs from 8 to 10 p.m., won't be business as usual. Production crews and screaming customers aren't invited -- so that fans can get to know the family better, take tours of the store and bring in all sorts of items for free appraisals.
"For fans, it's a great opportunity for them to see everything differently," said Ashley Gold Broad.
Seth Gold added, "For us, it's a great way to give back to the community."
General admission is $50. There are also limited VIP tickets for $100 that will get you in the doors at 7. WNIC-FM (100.3) and WJBK-TV (Channel 2)'s Jay Towers will host.
