Check them out, and if your in a local band and want to be featured then answer the same questions and email them along with a video to Jackie@wgrd.com, I don’t just feature anyone, so don’t suck and you’ll get the Jackie stamp of approval ;) Find me on facebook too, to follow all your favorite local bands, and GRD news by clicking HERE

Jackie Reviews Art Prize Food Trucks

Who doesn't love fall!  It's a great time in Grand Rapids, especially because Art Prize is here and that means the streets are full of food trucks!  So many different food options hit Grand Rapids the minute Art Prize begins.  Normally I have a routine and I stick to it pretty religiously but I thought, why not stray away from it and try some of this food we have right outside my door!

Jackie Gets Medieval In Recent Photo Schoot

There are so many shows out right now that follow the same theme, medieval awesomeness!  First off we have the ever popular, Game Of Thrones, followed by The Tutors and now the CW is bringing us Reign!  I'm a bit of a nerd TV addict.... I think it may have something to do with working nights for as long as I did, but I can stay up all night watching these shows!

Local High School Makes Antibullying Video

I stumbled upon this the other day, you may or may not know I work with middle schools coaching cross country and track. I used to work at Allendale Middle School and saw this pop up in my news feed on facebook. It's a video made by the students of Allendale High School to the song by Katy Perry, "Roar" promoting anti-bullying. I thought it was a pretty cool find and considering it was done by just the students, I thought I would give it a share!

Photos From Jackie’s Finish At The Air Force Marathon

Last Saturday I raced in the Air Force Marathon, fantastic experience with some of my running friends!  I opened my email today to find some photos that were taken during the race.  When I look back to running I remember feeling really crappy but in these photos I just look like a goof ball!  Mile 9 I was flashing the ROCK ON sign... Mile 19 I decided to be a Wayland Warrior!  Then of course there's the finish... those are just ugh!
