I grew up in South Haven, Michigan. Gotta love the Lake Michigan shore. I still feel a yearning for the beach, pretty much daily. I moved to Grand Rapids to go to Calvin College, fell in love with GR and have been here ever since! (Go Beer City, USA!)

I’m a big fan of crime TV, the ’90s (scrunchies! “Saved By the Bell!”), my own rude and feisty cat, the beach (you may have thought I covered that already, but I really, really love it, OK?), reading, people watching, drinking on patios, playing the most inappropriate cards in Cards Against Humanity, and my dear, dear family.

Grocery Store Proposed for Downtown Grand Rapids

I live pretty close to downtown Grand Rapids. Whenever I'm asked what downtown GR is lacking, I always say the same thing-- a grocery store!

Well, now it looks like one may be on the way. Kind of. From the sound of it, the new store proposed at 38 Commerce will have more options than what's currently available, but won't carry all the items one might seek on a full-on trip to the grocery store.

Greyline Brewing Co. Opens on Grand Rapids’ West Side

After hitting up Target on Alpine over the weekend, I was driving home when something new caught my eye. It was a gray building I'd never seen before; I glimpsed the word "brewery".
