This month ushers in an Eclectic revamp with a new series featuring local personalities from weirdos to wunderkinds. For this first edition, I queried the multi-talented entrepreneur and cat lady from Lansing, Autumn Luciano. We talk about her pin-up photography company Decadence Dolls, her burlesque and variety show Tease-A-GoGo, and being an all-around babe. Check her out before she runs off with the carnival. No, seriously.
Summer’s winding down, but it ain’t over yet. Now’s the time for a last-ditch escape to the waterfront before fall sets in. One of the best ways to spend a Michigan summer is on the water, but if you aren’t fortunate enough to own a lake house or a boat — or know a friend with one — there are still plenty of ways to escape stress and experience the lake effect.
Whether you’re in need of a day at the beach, a date night or a weekend staycation, these West Michigan coastal communities offer plenty in the way of water sports, dining, recreation and that carefree vacation feeling.
Here’s where to get started.
Frolic time is now, dear Michiganders. Fiesta and feast in Holland, get convivial at summer camp for adults, be wowed by colorful creations along the lakeshore sky and then learn a thing or two about badass, history-making gals.
This month, indulge your springtime urges (we all have ’em) with a frolic through the world of ’shrooms, a journey into the warm night sky, or an intimate, sensual evening with a theatre full of people.
What’s sweeter than a sweetheart in February? Free events. Catch pretty “punk” paintings, enjoy snow frolics and get a fabulously dressed dose of flapper feminism. If you’re game, score a symphonic Pokémon experience, too — but that’ll cost ya.
West Michigan is a long way from the North Pole, but there’s no shortage of yuletide-inspired shindigs throughout December. From unique Christmas shopping options to extravagant holiday events, here’s a shortlist of holly, jolly happenings.
November is filled with decadent delights and extraordinary sights. Enjoy acrobats on wacky bicycles, unusual pizza recipes, a burlesque anniversary bash and a romp through a den of chocolate.
Computer technology and the Internet gives creative minds the confidence and knowledge to affordably build, break, smash, tinker and tailor the world around us. We’re able to create something new, then post the tutorial to inspire others. Make it and they will come – and the Grand Rapids Mini Maker Faire is the perfect meeting spot for go-getting, DIY originators.
