All I can think is Homer Simpson is rolling over in his beer drenched grave. Can't you hear a "Mmmmmm...Donnnuuttss...aaarrggghhh" Coming from his mouth? I'm drooling just thinking about it. Friday is "National Donut Day" and donut shops around the area are celebrating! Yum!
And WFGR will be downtown and broadcasting on Saturday! Festival of the Arts (or Festival, as the locals call it--blend in if you are from out of town or new to the area--you can thank me later) starts on Friday with food and local art and food and music and some food and kids and did I mention the food? Here's all you need to know to be ready for the start of the Summer Festival season in West Michigan!
The Fox Sports Detroit girls will be making a special appearance at Rosa Parks Circle Friday afternoon with Whitecaps tickets and your chance to get pictures! The scenery might be pretty good! Win Whitecaps tix for knowing trivia answers, and meet the sexy ladies from FSN Detroit!
Today is both Robert Moog's birthday AND free Slurpee day at 7-11! If you didn't know, Robert Moog invented the electric organ that bares his name. If you go to Google, the "Google" logo has been replaced with a working electric organ that you can play AND record on...it's pretty cool!
Go help out a good cause, have some fun, and get your nose licked this weekend! Saturday is the 6th annual "Spring Fling" for the Allies for Greyhounds of West Michigan! The non profit group that helps find homes for greyhounds is having it's annual fundraiser and picnic off of Three Mile Road from 11 to 5 Satuday!
The spelling-challenged team from 98.7 won and lost at the 19th annual Spellebration at the Thousand Oaks Country Club Wednesday night. The awards honoring spelling tutors and supporters for the Literacy Center of West Michigan was highlighted by the annual celebrity spelling bee. Matt and myself started out slowly (one of few misspelled words by the champs from WZZM) and got...slower. We finished...
A Grand Opening, baseball, a holiday for a country that no one in that country celebrates, concerts, A Major Festival, food and thousands gathering in Van Andel to yell about their money: just another fun weekend in West Michigan! Here is your key to what's goin' on all across the area!
Double D is hitting the big time! Duran Duran has been announced as the headlining act for the opening ceremony! Simon and the boys have been headlining Awesome 80's weekends here at WFGR and now the rest of the world will get to see them. The opening ceremony will have an estimated audience of 1 Billion people worldwide (Nervous Simon?)
Maybe we are, or maybe we aren't - but we'll find out soon! Yours truly Matt Hendricks along with Craig Russell and the afternoon Hustle will be taking on other local celebs in what they are calling a "Bee-Dazzling" spelling competition on May 9th! I also did fairly well in spelling back in school, but I have to admit, with things like spell check, it's easier to get by these days without knowing how to spell well!
Saturday is the day shutterbugs wait all winter for! It's Spring Photo Expo Day at Marks' Photo and Video on South Division! Cluck and Craig Russell from the Afternoon Hustle will be LIVE at Marks' from 1 to 3 Saturday!
