The Folk Fanatic loves Americana, folk, roots — just about any music that features an acoustic guitar and songs about the wilderness. They're here to throw on a record, sip some beer, and munch on classic American comfort food.
While you’re bingeing away over the holidays, the Nutrition Nut will sit at their end of the table, eating from their pre-cooked, pre-measured, perfectly portioned meals, straight out of their own reusable containers.

Downtown Grand Rapids is making space for pups to run, play and socialize.
