Interested to hear Patagonia Outdoor marketing guru Craig Thorne discuss their sustainability story at tomorrow's Local First annual conference @ Aquinas.

Can't wait to see Mustard Plug this weekend at the Street Party. I used to play in a band while attending MSU in the 90s and they were a big deal back then, too!

Oops, getting too excited. Local First Street Party is next weekend, the 13th, not this weekend!

The Hard Lessons are pretty kickass as well. Their manager is Chris Johnston, the former lead singer of 19 Wheels, who also had a pretty good fan base over here (they played their final show at The Intersection).

Good to know about The Hard Lessons. Can't wait to see them. Loved 19 Wheels, and Johnston's original band, the Hannibals!

Nice article about some of our favorite restaurants including information about the local farm sources of the selections on their menus.

It reminded me of this video, I suppose we might be overhearing conversations like this one at some of the restaurants in uptown:
