The +Grand Rapids Ballet production of The Nutcracker is a tradition for many in and around West Michigan during the holiday season. This year, the classic gets a fresh take with none other than famed children’s book author and East Grand Rapids native Chris Van Allsburg (author of The Polar Express, among many others) involved in the production along with Tony Award-winning designer Eugene Lee. Val Caniparoli, who has worked with more than 35 ballet, opera and theaters, will choreograph.

So whether you’re a West Michigan resident or planning a visit (welcome), it’s time to warm a restaurant seat because Restaurant Week Grand Rapids (RWGR) is upon us.  #RestaurantWeek   #grandrapids

Looking Back at Beer City

From the Suburbs to the City: Getting Around Downtown on the Silver Line

Ready to head downtown but don’t want to drive? The Rapid Silver Line is at your service! The Silver Line debuts on August 25, 2014 and will offer riders a new option to get downtown from the suburbs of Wyoming and Kentwood. Transportation on the Silver Line will be quicker for sure (more like an express bus—you can see our post with all the details, here), but also has cool features like free wi-fi and GPS that communicates with traffic lights along Division St, so buses can hold the green just a little longer to keep things running on schedule.

A Must-See Summertime Highlight: Meijer Gardens Summer Concert Series

+Frederik Meijer Gardens & Sculpture Park is a floral oasis just fifteen minutes from Downtown Grand Rapids. Meijer Gardens warms our winter with a toasty butterfly exhibit, features a world-class interactive children’s garden (think tree-houses and wetlands), and is home to both a five-story conservatory and 132-acre grounds. But what really gets the locals talking is the The Fifth Third Bank Outdoor Summer Concert Series where the best headliners and live music experiences in West Michigan are found en plein air, with folks gathered around a gorgeous amphitheater on tiered lawn seating, generally with beer in hand.
