Ok, it's early in the week, but there are so many great things happening around West Michigan this whole week , I couldn't wait til the weekend! For starters, the Berlin Fair is underway in Marne! Who doesn't love fair food and kids! And Tuesday is 15th birthday of the Grand Rapids Children's Museum! There's cake and a new exhibit unveiled between 5 and 8!
And all over the country too! It's 7/11/12, or better known as 7-11's birthday! The store, which was named for the hours it originally was open (7am to 11pm) gives away FREE Slurpees on July 11 every year. Except in Australia. Free Slurpee Day is on November 7th there, since in other countries, dates are "month/day/year" so 7/11/12 is in November. See what you learn by reading this blog? :)
From our close friends at WZZM TV13, the official list of all the fireworks shows and celebrations for the 4th of July in Michigan! Shameless plug: WFGR sponsors the FREE 4th of July Fireworks at Gun Lake Casino, starting at 10:30! See Cluck the chicken and other surprises between 6 and 8!
Ever golfed at night? I have golfed close to night time a couple of times. Once finishing up 18 holes at about 9:45 at night. The other was when a buddy lived right by an exclusive course in Portage (I won't tell you the course, but it rhymes with "The Bores") and we would jump on and play the 14th and 15th holes for free! Good times, good times. Now we are ready to golf at night for real!
The weather has broken, it's not going to be an oven, and there's lots to do in West Michigan this weekend! This is one of those weekends we dream about in February when it's 8 degrees and snowing like a big dog! Sunny and about 80 all weekend, and plenty to do! Get out and enjoy it!
A shirtless Tom Cruise? Alec Baldwin as...well NOT as Jack from 30 Rock? And all kinds of 80 hair bands and rock til you drop music? Must be Rock of Ages, the hit musical from Broadway now on the big screen! This is going to be the movie, along with the Magic Mike movie, that 98% of women in this country are going to wanna see!
It was another exciting WFGR Supermarket Sweep with Access of Kent County, Family Fare and WZZM TV 13. And for the 3rd straight year, we lost! This year, however, we did better than we have ever did. Why? The power of the chicken. Cluck!

Looking for some good laughs? Look no further than "Something Funny Happened on the Way to the Forum" at the Grand Rapids Civic Theater!
This is good ol Fashioned Comedy all done by our local performers and the beautiful and cool Civic theater downtown GR. It's a Farce comedy, which means it's pretty silly and slapstick, right up my alley!
If no one steps up, the 40th annual Cutlerville Days fireworks show scheduled for Saturday night will be cancelled. The need for sponsors to raise the 13-ish thousand dollars to put on a good fireworks show have fallen through. This will be the first time in the 40 year history of the festival with no fireworks.
