It is the season of throbbing hearts, frolicking, tomfoolery and communing with nature. This month, explore our bountiful waterways, re-imagine trash in the name of art and the earth, get buzzed permanently and wear a hat no one else will dare.
April perhaps makes fools out of Michiganders desperate for spring. But, regardless of the weather conditions, this month has a plethora of fun diversions to fill your black hole of longing.
March is more than the cruel denial of spring or pretending you're Irish so you can neck with that redhead over there. I have just a handful of mighty March words for you: space, vaudeville, philately and AIR SUPPLY.
If you're slowly clawing your eyes out or drooling over plane tickets to the tropics, you might be suffering from a particular syndrome brought on by the longest, shortest month: February. You can either embrace the last sullen vestiges of winter, or escape them. Why not do both?
Like exultant newborns, we come screaming and crying into January, waiting for the old, filthy snow to melt so we can resume our lives.

The parent requires a stiff drink — something to transport them to another place — away from the soccer fields or two-hour tantrums. The Hemingway Daiquiri does this.

Add some fresh-squeezed lime juice and seasonal fruits like strawberry or watermelon and you get a taste of “clean but sweet notes,” according to bartender Rob Hanks.
