  1. The DT Market might not have been the success they were hoping it would be, but on the weekends it is slammed. Before it moved in I would rarely see people walk south of Cherry St on Ionia, that has completely changed.
  2. Big tourist destinations with low year round population.
  3. It surpassed TC, I'm pretty sure they were #1 last year.
  4. Graydon's was sold at the end of 2017 to Kevin Farhat (owner of Garage Bar) and Eric Albertson (owner of Speak EZ). They worked together previously before owning their respective establishments. Third Coast bought the building as a part of the deal too. As for Derby shutting down, I had heard they were struggling. It may have been partly due to Gaslight being such a high rent area, but I don't know for certain.
  5. I was doing some reading about Leon & Son, they were mentioned in GQ as one of the best wine shops in the country. Should be a pretty cool little place.
  6. I really wish them the best, but I can't help thinking this is a terrible idea. If burgers and fries aren't going to sell there, I'm not sure any restaurant could make it. Maybe if they offer free lunch delivery to businesses downtown...
  7. Very cool! Can't wait to check it out.
  8. Dan Burrill is an agent with Five Star, the company I work for does most of his title insurance. I know we did the one on 36th street. I don't have any info on what his intentions are, just know that he bought it about a year ago.
  9. London to Halifax for under $200 Canadian round trip. Now that is tempting.
  10. If not any west coast destination, I would take New Orleans.
  11. Please be California. Really, really please be SFO or OAK.
  12. Transit numbers are down in most cities. I would probably put more of the blame on low gas prices, but I'm sure property values play a part.
  13. Most of my friends who went to GVSU had classes both Downtown and Allendale, I feel like it is quite common.
  14. Looks like they added in Warren, but the peak populations are still wrong.
  15. I've been vacationing up just north of Manistee for my entire life. I still am shocked when I drive down River Street and see how many gorgeous old buildings are intact.
  16. News from Manistee: Was just up there over memorial day weekend and noticed a couple exciting projects. The Music Vault, a new "listening room" style venue is opening soon. A new amphitheater is being proposed for the 1st street beach, hoping to attract some concerts throughout the summer. Kind of interesting as both of those ideas have been floating around GR. I'm hoping Studio Park still includes plans for a listening room.
  17. The prices they are trying to get for those spaces are steep.
  18. We moved from #119 to #115 in population rank. Overtook Montgomery AL, Amarillo TX, Yonkers NY, and Aurora IL. Also interesting, we started the decade above Salt Lake City, they passed us in 2017, but we may trade spots again after they had a really slow year of growth. They grew 6388 between 2016-2017 and only 21 between 2017-2018.
  19. I know, I feel like my whole life I've been saying it is "about 200k" or "just under 200k." It is minor, but I love seeing the 2 as the first number.
  20. Grand Rapids surpassed the 200,000 mark in the latest census numbers. We are currently sitting at 200,217, added 1135 people between July 2017 and July 2018.
  21. It'll be interesting to see what they do to that place. Honestly I've never had a bad experience there, not sure why it would get picked. But then again Hopleaf in Chicago (one of the best and busiest beer bars in the city, going on 27 years) was contacted by Bar Rescue to shoot an episode. They laughed it off of course and said no.
  22. Grand Rapids native and Purdue graduate. And that is where the similarities between him and I end...
