Outdoor Winter Activities

Written by Lindsay Patton | Monday, 29 December 2014 09:56 |

You can only stay indoors so long before cabin fever sets in. 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.

Once your NYE high wears off, you’re often left with wintertime whimpering, failed promises and the blurred memory of too many parties. Fear not! Take refuge in good old fashioned showbiz, painted bald men, mighty chainsaws used as finely tipped paintbrushes and wild women who tell it like it is.

The Danceoff to Raise Money for the Well House

Written by Kayla Hay | Wednesday, 03 December 2014 09:37 |

 

Competition thrives in all of us. A good arm wrestle with a buddy, touch football on a summer day or a hard-core dance off, with the latter happening at the Pyramid Scheme.

 

Robots, creatures from more than one land of Oz, a silent disco and beer as red as ruby red slippers will color your November as you either fend off the fear of an imminent Polar Vortex or rejoice in a sick fascination with snow sports.

October Eclectic Roundup: Carrie the Musical; Goose Festival

Written by Audria Larsen | Thursday, 25 September 2014 11:09 |

Gangplanks, ghastly girls, geese and goofballs offer up a mélange of entertainment that goes beyond costumes and cornfields this month. Get the lowdown on pirates, grimace at buckets of blood, run like you could fly and bask in the hilarious silence of a bygone star.

September Eclectic: Tinker Takeover; Kalamazoo Reptile Show and more

Written by Audria Larsen | Monday, 25 August 2014 13:58 |

Summer may have shaken its last mighty fist. Maybe. But this September is all about ritual, reimagining and reusing. Tinker like a magpie in a junkyard, cuddle a species more ancient than yourself, celebrate fishy frolics and find reverence for the instruments of yore, via the sounds of today.

As summer winds down, now is your last chance to get away for a week, weekend or even a day trip if you can. Many will argue summer is the best time to be living in West Michigan, with the lakes, dunesand ample camping opportunities. Enjoy the last bit of summer with a camping trip. Or, if you don't like getting too rustic, glam it up a little bit with a glamping trip.

Roughing It in Michigan

Written by Alex Connolly | Monday, 28 July 2014 13:26 |

Civilization is pretty great — electricity, life expectancy over 30, and it seems like you’re never more than three hundred feet from a McDonald’s at any given time. Sometimes, though, you need to just get away from your comfortable and safe existence and experience something a little more… primal.

Glamping Wish List

Glamping 101

Written by Missy Black | Monday, 28 July 2014 11:25 |

Glamour+camping. It’s mimosas in the morning instead of orange juice. The glamping experience is like a park and party pad complete with all the cutesy comforts of home. Men, you’re in charge of tunes, flasks, the fire (adding sage repels mosquitoes) and focusing on being the classiest son of a bitchwith a hitch. If, for any reason, you feel like you’re roughing it, you need to reapply your glam.
