You can't escape the Michigan winter, so you might as well bundle up and have some fun outdoors. Our state takes winter activities seriously, too. There are 51 ski areas and resorts, with 6,500 miles of snow mobile trails and 3,000 miles of cross country skiing trails, according to Pure Michigan's website. Read More

  • Michigan Stout Face-Off

    When winter rolls around, it’s a not-so-subtle cue to start drinking stouts. There’s just something warming about the roasty and rich coffee flavors featured in so many of the styles that pairs well with the season. These are typically beers with some personality — just like a Pure Michigan winter.   Read More

    If you were like any red-blooded American child, Beauty and the Beast was your jam - probably one of your favorite Disney animated movies. There is still time to re-capture your youth and check out all those crazy cats live on stage. Lindsay Patton-Carson has your hook-up, plus a ton more in this week's best bets. Lindsay has the rundown of the weekend, which includes the Harlem Globetrotters in Grand Rapids, blues guru Selwyn Birchwood at the Tip Top Deluxe and WinterFest in Grand Haven.

  • Disney’s Detailed Beauty Disney’s Detailed Beauty

    Some movies are all about the details, and Disney’s Beauty and the Beast is one of them. As charming as the storyline is, it’s the addition of luscious artwork, ingenious songwriting and intricate characters that elevates the film to a masterpiece. Just try rooting for the Beast and Belle without falling for a talking candlestick along the way. 

  • Tasting Notes: Slow Ride Session IPA Tasting Notes: Slow Ride Session IPA

    Not every occasion calls for a full-bodied IPA. Sometimes, you want the flavor of an IPA without the weight (and responsibility) of a higher alcohol content. That’s why many breweries are debutting new session IPAs, and one of the newest is Slow Ride from Colorado’s New Belgium Brewing.

  • Tasting Notes: Portage Porter Tasting Notes: Portage Porter

    Portage is a new seasonal beer from the veteran brewers at New Belgium Brewing. The label features a gorgeous wooden canoe in a wheeled carrier ready for a portage, reflecting the name of the beer. After prying off the cap, an aggressive pour results in a one-finger head of off-white foam that quickly dissipates.

    Return of the Mac. Return of the Mac. As devoted ‘90s lyrics enthusiasts, we had an inkling he might be back. But we never guessed that she would be back as well; that is, Christie McVie, the longstanding hold out on the much-buzzed about Fleetwood Mac reunion tour.
