A last minute decision, choosing the Lansing Brewing Company for dinner turned out well. The sandwich choices we selected were good, from the quinoa burger to a short rib grilled cheese to the rueben, and the nachos were interesting. The beer was good too, which should by why you're there, I liked the cream ale. Finally, there's a downtown Lansing brewpub that will fill the niche that the Blue Coyote ignorantly abandoned many years ago. Our only complaint: it was too noisy. Folks wishing to watch the football games can gather their information from the screen, the audio is unneeded.

As part of our recent car shopping experience, we were also seeking to trade in our car. To hasten the process I submitted all of the car's details electronically in advance to Lasco Ford, including its VIN. One of Lasco's salespeople scheduled an appointment to inspect our car, and offered what I thought seemed like a reasonable price for it, which enticed my wife and I to take the afternoon off from work and make the 20+ mile drive to the dealership. We identified a vehicle of our liking, but Lasco's inspection team came back with less than half of what we were originally offered, even though they had all of the information in advance, so we left. The whole experience was a complete waste of time. I sent a note to Lasco's leadership regarding the 'bait and switch' technique that we unfortunately suffered, but was only provided a nearly illegible response. Our salesperson followed up with us via both voicemail and email regarding our interest in the car we identified, but why would we consider Lasco Ford after their unfortunate ethical lapse.

Exemplary service, particularly Cheri Noantay. En route from a week spent in New Orleans to our home in Michigan on July 2, our 2005 Ford Freestyle suffered a loss of brake pedal response, so we pulled over in Pass Christian to evaluate the problem and our options. Knowing that we had hotel reservations in Biloxi that day, and with the brakes again responding, we warily continued our coastal trip. I asked the hotel clerk for a repair recommendation, and an appointment was made with Firestone Complete Auto Care at 2707 Pass Road, Biloxi. Their initial inspection found what my ASE-certified brother suspected, that the master cylinder required replacement. But, coupled with that repair came the recommendation to replace all calipers, rotors, and brake lines as well. This initial estimate was over $2,500, but after some exasperating discussions, was reduced to $1616.92. I telephoned my brother for a second opinion, and he recommended that I locate a Ford dealer, which brings me to why I write to you. Knowing that the July 3 date provided holiday scheduling and repair pressures, but with a pressing deadline to return to work in Michigan following the weekend, I hurriedly called Cheri for an appointment. Arriving around 10 A.M., Cheri registered me and the Freestyle, and I waited patiently for a mechanic’s evaluation. Around lunchtime, Cheri provided me with a menu of a local eatery, asking if I would like to join the Oustalet Ford employees in an order. The Freestyle finally saw a mechanic, who declared it problem-free; he could not recreate the mechanical problem, and gave me advice for continuing our 1,000 mile drive north. With the worries of transporting my family that great distance, and attempting to acquire such extensive automobile service during the impending holiday weekend, the timing of the Freestyle’s temporary mechanical problem created much to concern me. Oustalet Ford's exemplary staff, particularly Cheri Noantay, alleviated any of my anxieties, and did not take advantage of traveller. It’s dealerships such as Oustalet Ford and employees like Cheri that make travel and car service much easier endeavors to undertake.

Design Rides and the owner, John, are really terrific. John actually made a housecall to assist with the wonky car alarm on our Volvo, he was quick and really affordable. Having enjoyed a good experience, I also had Design Rides install a new stereo in my RV, which was, again, prompt and affordable. Couldn't recommend higher.

We had a reservation for a more commercial-type campground in the area, but my family and I were drawn to Target Tree Campground as we drove by attracted by the rustic scenery. The hosts were terrific, we had the run of the place to ourselves, and took a great hike in the morning to start off our next day.

A hot dog and a couple of beers, the simple food and diverse drink were excellent. The service, though, was abysmal: Dan, the bartender, was more interested in cussing and gossiping with his off-shift colleague, whose food arrived before mine, even though I ordered first. I went without a beer for the entire time I was eating, even though Dan was only a few feet away. What I realized tonight was actually how service is more important than food and drink, I'd gladly re-attend some place with mediocre product but superior service. Also, I have 4 kids and don't get out often, and as a former waiter and bartender, tonight's the first time in my life I've not included a tip, and I told him it was because he took too long. Sorry, Petoskey Brewing, attend to your service.

The bathroom could be a little less scary, and it would be great if the restaurants and bars in this country went smokeless, but the service is always prompt and courteous, and the burgers and fries are always terrific.
