Mouths have been drooling since the menus for more than 65 area restauranteurs were announced on July 15, presenting West Michigan's finest fare this side of US-127 from Aug. 14-24 for the 4th Annual Restaurant Week.
Dan St. Germain knows where a good Internet short can get a comedian and has spent time perfecting that art. As a result, his shorts have appeared on the front page of Funny or Die and his series "Kicking Dan Out" is featured on the My Damn Channel Comedy Network.
St. Germian puts all his efforts into writing, producing and acting in his shorts and readily dismisses the notion that just simply focusing on being creative will get the job done. “You can't do that in this day and age,” he said.
Big Lake Brewing began where most breweries do: homebrewing. Co-owners Nic Winhimius and Travis Prueter had been brewing together since they met in 2007, and, like most homebrewers, aspired to open their own brewery and began laying the tracks.

After nearly 10 years on Division Avenue, volunteer run music venue and art gallery The Division Avenue Arts Collective (The DAAC) is being forced to close its doors on Aug. 1 due to a change in building ownership.
Like with her music, ZZ Ward follows a classic style by incorporating fedoras into her wardrobe, paying homage to her blues heroes like Robert Johnson, while adding a twist of her own. "I have, like, 60 fedoras," Ward said.
"I started singing in a blues band when I was 12 and I would always wear a fedora because it would remind me of the blues. So I wear a fedora to pay homage to the blues artists that I grew up listening to."
