  1. https://www.mlive.com/news/grand-rapids/2021/07/alger-heights-salon-owners-to-open-coffee-cocktails-business-next-door.html I'm all for non-alcoholic options. With the push for a quasi all ages dry bar https://www.woodtv.com/news/grand-rapids/artist-working-to-open-grand-rapids-first-lgbtq-dry-bar/ - we need more options. I would love love love if breweries would keep a few craft NA beers behind the bar for us former beer drinkers who still love going to breweries.
  2. City Government spends $8M to buy prime riverfront property on Scribner so it can abandon its current prime riverfront property on Market. I'm so confused. Is there not a parcel anywhere else they could use? or maybe multiple smaller sites with distributed equipment? sure, I'm not a government person, but does this seem silly to anyone else? Here's a property in Rockford that is similarly sized, only $500K and is also....riverfront!!! https://www.zillow.com/homedetails/8099-Jericho-Ave-NE-Rockford-MI-49341/101630598_zpid/ ()
  3. can we just tear it down and make one giant roundabout that encompasses bridge st intersecting covell?
  4. So I think this is done? I really don't understand what is happening here. Maybe adjoining buildings on the north and south will fill it in and make it look more consistent? It looks incomplete
  5. Somehow I don't think having a street level restaurant in the middle of the Michigan St. hill is really going to achieve the foot traffic you think it will. Not surprisingly, there isn't demand for those restaurants from the surrounding community of empty-after-5-buildings and the highway overpass. And you can't really put a drive through on Michigan Hill.
  6. I eagerly await Mike Freed's long form letter to their board about abandoning their duty to West Michigan to stay exactly the same forever. /s
  7. Agree. I was down on Monroe North over the weekend and it was happening. If SH is taking properties that contribute to the vibrancy of the neighborhood, i hope there are plans to incorporate some ground floor retail/commercial. To have that much area effectively *closed* outside of corporate business hours would be a travesty.
  8. ....dayum, and I didn't even see that Corridor Coffee has changed over!!! https://www.mlive.com/news/grand-rapids/2021/06/local-eats-morning-ritual-a-grand-rapids-botanical-coffee-bar-offers-unique-floral-herbal-flavors.html Ok, last post for now....Alex and Rosie are great people. Alex invited me for a tour and cupping at their shop in Grandville and I've been a loyal customer ever since. I'm so glad they made it through the pandemic. https://www.mlive.com/news/grand-rapids/2021/05/michigan-entrepreneur-of-the-year-donated-coffee-to-help-struggling-cafes-reopen-after-pandemic-s
  9. I thought about putting this in the off-topic area since it's literally called the GR Coffee House, but you know, there's enough movement in GR's coffee scene to warrant it's own thread (i think). I'll start the thread with post about two new coffee happenings. https://mix957gr.com/theres-two-new-places-to-grab-coffee-in-grand-rapids/ for Squibb and Sparrows. https://www.mlive.com/news/grand-rapids/2021/06/local-eats-new-coffee-shop-brings-specialty-drinks-to-grand-rapids-neighborhood.html https://www.mlive.com/news/grand-rapids/2021/06/squibb-coffee-bar-opening-at-downtow
  10. Really loving the murals on Lafayette near Plainfield. I think this is a https://www.lionsandrabbits.com/initiatives ? Not sure, but it's great!!
  11. anti-windmill arguments don't hold (back) water any longer. Source: (https://twitter.com/BrentToderian/status/1409509199634042884?s=03) (https://twitter.com/BrentToderian/status/1408690103078178816?s=03)
  12. Slightly off-topic here, but does anyone know why Osteria Rossa is boarded up??
  13. I could see Tanger wanting to do something like the Domain in Austin Tx. https://www.tripadvisor.com/Attraction_Review-g30196-d1487717-Reviews-The_Domain-Austin_Texas.html If they could please pull in TopGolf, that'd be great!!!! I can't fricken believe we don't have one.
  14. From the old snippets of the Spectrum Health master plan I've seen (more than a year ago), the brick on the GVSU building will be consistent with the SH building that will eventually go next door at 414 Prospect. So it will probably end up looking fine in that regard. I think the SH building will be visually similar to the Lemmen Holten building brick and glass.
  15. am I really that clueless about the artists in the lineup schedule?? I don't know any of them...are any of them big names??
