If you’re on the lookout for a unique Christmas shopping experience, Grand Rapids has a day for you, offering ultra-creative gifts from more than 150 businesses and a shuttle service to get you there. On Dec. 7, from 4-10 p.m., hit up the Uptown Holiday Shop Hop event that spans four business districts.
Working out in winter might seem like a total bummer, or it might be the only way you keep warm. Either way, staying motivated and on-track with your fitness plans during the winter months is difficult. Lighten up the mood and keep your festive spirits high with holiday 5Ks around West Michigan.
Believe it or not, there’s more to the holiday season than just Christmas.
‘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.
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.
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?”
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.
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.
