    Grand Rapids Airport (GRR) News and Developments

    That's a bummer for sure. I've flown with them at least 5 times now, never a problem.

    I've had no issues w/ Allegiant. You can 'uncheck' the extra fee checkbox for a seat assignment in their online booking. Plus they're now flying to SW Florida. Another route that I'll use. Anytime I can get a non stop out of GRR it's a win in my opinion.

    The State of Downtown Grand Rapids Retail

    Went DT specifically to goto Georgio's w/ my sister (MSU alum) and her BF. She's been out of the country for a bit and wanted to get a slice or 2 w/o trekking an hour to E.L. before leaving the country again. Lo and behold, we get there and the place is closed. I saw hours on google being 11am-10pm. Same hours were posted on the door, too. Quite a disappointment. We then (naively) walked up to One Trick Pony / The Cottage Bar. Oops! Closed, too. At least their doors said they were closed on Sunday's. We proceeded to walk over to Republic and had a nice dinner. I guess the moral of the story is 'call ahead'. EDIT: While waiting for sister & her bf to show up, I called Georgio's number and an auto-attendant answered. "Press 12 to place an order". haha -- it just rang and rang.
  4. I had the Vietnamese Pho yesterday. Quite good. Although eating out of the 32oz container w/ chopsticks was tricky. Some sort of bowl would've been easier to maneuver the chopsticks into. I'm looking forward to my next visit.

    New grocery store for the West Side

    Wish they would've kept the Friendly Owl sign.

    Hey, what's that?

    I miss the old GRPM. The new museum isn't quite the same.

    Grand Rapids Then and Now

    Never knew it was an Atlantic Mills - learn something new everyday on this board. I agree that Stadium Arena is redundant. How about Park Field for the new baseball field downtown?

    Grand Rapids Then and Now

    That is correct. Stadium Arena in those old pictures is the arc-shaped building with the silver trussing on the top of the building.

    Does anyone have any new gems they've stumbled across?
  11. I drive past the Chipotle every day. Aside from removing the port-a-potty from the front sidewalk - it appears that the inside is about ready to go. This is of course, from an untrained eye. It could just as easily be a month out.

    Cheers to those who arranged this partnership. I can only see good things coming from this.
  13. The more sushi places in town the better! (man I'm fiending for a nice tuna sashimi).

    Redevelopment along 28th Street

    Didn't Finley's used to be "Schelde's" and before that "Mr. Steak"? Another nice stroll down memory lane...

    Redevelopment along 28th Street

    I vaguely remember Farrel's - I was quite young when it was around. Quick google search: I think I always got a root-beer float when we went, so I could take the little plastic mugs home.
