Sights And Attitudes Of Downtown During Artprize.

So I wandered around Downtown a bit yesterday during Artprize. Most people posting on the internets during the world's biggest art competition have pictures of art, or pictures of themselves along with the art, or pictures of themselves with the art drunk.

The dog and his new owner live in Orgeon, one of the healthiest states in the country. This dog however, might skew those numbers in the wrong direction. A normal weiner dog weighs about 32 pounds, making Obie over twice as big as normal. Let's put it another way. My seven year old son weighs 45 pounds. The dog would crush him!

It's that time of year! The annual Ringling Brothers circus at Van Andel Arena. A fixture in the are for years, the circus takes over the arena for the next week or so. Unlike a concert or a hockey game. where equipment or support is trucked or bussed in, the animals arrive mostly by train.

Is The Gerald Ford Graffiti Artist Back?

As I was making my way downtown Sunday, I drove past the BOB and saw something that looked familar. Perhaps you remember back in April when graffiti of former President Gerald Ford appeared on I-196. "I am indebted to no man" was stenciled above a black and white picture of Michigan's only president. Well it seems the Pres is back, this time with the first lady.

A Beer Flavored Milk Shake? [POLL]

I like lots of things. Red Robin is one of those things. The tower of onion rings, big burgers, endless steak fries, fun eating establishments, it's all good. Now Red Robin is ready for Octoberfest with an Octoberfest themed limited time only hamburger with a pretzel bun, and a beer flavored milkshake. Huh?
