‘Tis the season to take some time and help make someone else’s day better. Get involved, in a big or small way, by donating food, supplies, toys, money or time to one (or more) of the local and national charities here in West Michigan. Here’s just a short list of the many places where you can lend a hand this holiday season — or any time of the year.

Gift Guide: Soccer Mom

Written by Dwayne Hoover | Wednesday, 09 December 2015 18:38 |

What day is it, Tuesday? Does that mean there’s t-ball practice or a PTO meeting? Crap, it’s both, isn’t it?  Well, whatever.  After a week filled with fundraising and uniform washing, the Soccer Mom has a sitter lined up this weekend for some much-needed “me” time. 

Gift Guide: Foodie

Written by Marjorie Steele | Wednesday, 09 December 2015 18:24 |

The Foodie knows the name of every local farm within a 50-mile radius and has an heirloom tomato greenhouse on speed dial. Never lowering him or herself to eating at chains, the Foodie demands to speak with the chef to ask “what inspired this dish and what percentage of your food comes from local farms?”

Gift Guide: Buzzkill

Written by Steven G. de Polo | Wednesday, 09 December 2015 17:06 |

The Buzzkill is kryptonite to conversation and plutonium for parties. You don’t know she’s there until everything is dead around you. Keep her busy this holiday season feeling miserable and full of doom, but just keep Buzz Killington far away from you. 

Gift Guide: Fitness Freak

Written by Lindsay Patton-Carson | Wednesday, 09 December 2015 16:58 |

The Fitness Freak never slows down. Even with a packed schedule, she still finds time to hit the gym, trails, pool, climbing wall, yoga mat, bike, kayak, slopes… you get the idea. If it involves endorphins, she’s down. She’s also not-so-patiently waiting for REVUE’s Fit Issue to come out in January.

Gift Guide: Beer Snob

Written by Mark Deming | Thursday, 03 December 2015 23:34 |

One of the best and worst things about the holiday season is Christmas music. While there are plenty of great Yuletide tunes that make you tap your toes and pull at the heartstrings, there are a lot of folks who have no desire to waste another minute listening to holiday dreck from Kenny G, Mannheim Steamroller or Mariah Carey. So if you want to add some new flavors to your Christmas mix, consider these albums and put a fresher twist on the songs of the season.

SantaCon: You Better Watch Out, Santa Clauses Are Coming to Town

Written by Eric Mitts | Thursday, 03 December 2015 23:32 |

You might not believe in Santa Claus, but what about bar-hopping Santa Clauses? Now in its eighth year, SantaCon Kalamazoo aims to spread holly-jolly merrymaking across the streets of downtown for one night a year — as well as to give something back to those in need, just like good old Kris Kringle would.
