    The Grand Lady Riverboat

    Ahh yes, the Grand Lady, perfect for your Saturday evening! The riverboat is sick, and I mean that in a good way, you hop on the boat and its a two hour cruise with a full bar, and live music! Plus your stuck on a boat so no one can run away from you...

    The Funky Buddah Yoga Hot House

    Now let me preface this... It is important that you are committed to finding someone try go as extreme as Funky Buddha but let me tell you, you wont regret it! Funky Buddha yes is a yoga house, but its a "hot house" which means the keep the temps averaging at 95 degrees during the yoga sessions... TONS of sexy yoga ladies and gentlemen, all decked out in spandex and sweat... Its an amazing workout, while you get to meet new people and sweat off the booze you had at Hopcat the night before!

    Let's get real local here guys and gals, Hopcat is awesome! How often do we go to a bar ready to let loose and meet someone and have it chalked full of 18 year old drunk chicks that wanna just dance all night and get in your way...? Well Hopcat is the perfect bar for your single needs, after 8pm no one under 21 is permitted at all, so you don't get stuck with those white trashy people that want to pack up the kids and go to dinner at the bar your trying to get drunk and mack on chicks at!

    Racing Events

    Alright I'm not talking about your NASCAR racing events here dude, I'm talking about road races! We all know I am an avid runner but I see more hotties at these races than anywhere else! Try a race like 5/3 River Bank Run, or If your real serious you could do the Grand Rapids Marathon! If your into running it also helps ya meet someone with similar interests to yourself! This will get ya in shape, and meet chicks, or dudes! Go on line, I reccomend, runmichigan.com they have all the road races in the area, and all you have to do is type in your zip code!
