Great beer, SUN and fun at the 2014 Annual Michigan Winter Beer Festival: 89 Breweries, 789 beers and lots of new breweries. It did not disappoint.
No seriously, does it get any better when you get to groove like a penguin in bondage at the Michigan Theater in Ann Arbor, Michigan with the Zappa Plays Zappa band? On Wednesday (2/19/2014), we got treated to Zappa Plays Zappa performing the entire “Roxy & Elsewhere” album by Frank Zappa & The Mothers. This is the 40th anniversary of the album release and Zappa Plays Zappa is taking it out to audiences across the country.
Eric and Evan met us at the door and started to walk us through the process of taking unwanted trees (harvested by Evan’s tree service company – Arbor Man) and turning them into usable lumber and finished wood products. Tree Purposed Detroit is unique in that they combine all aspects of lumber production and woodworking under one roof. Pretty cool!! These are certainly some ingenious and hard working fellas!
Chuck’s Almost Famous Experience! Covering shows, interviewing musicians, and writing album reviews. He may not be 15 but he is still having a good time!
Mingling with naughty snow sculptures while drinking one-of-a-kind Dark Horse beer in the Beer Garten. It doesn’t get much better! Lots of great pictures.

Last week (Thursday 12/12 to be precise), I went out to the Magic Stick in Detroit to check out The Red Paintings, Lionize, Spacehog, and home-town icons Sponge. Jon Freeman from Freeman Promotions (the cool dude that hooked me up with the photo pass for Clutch) let me know about Lionize coming to town and wanted to know if I wanted to check out the show.
A recap of the 4 Elf Party at Dark Horse Brewery on Dec 4, 2013. It is a beer sale, music event, food experimentation, beer drinking, dancing, good time.
The class reunion for the Manchester High School (MHS) class of 1984 is July 19, 2014. Looking for my lost classmates! I found in Lake Erie on the Edgar B Speer.
As far as I’m concerned, my holiday season kicks-in with Ann Arbor’s Midnight Madness event. This event is a nice sampling of Ann Arbor, Michigan–shopping, merrymaking, bar hopping and fun all rolled into one event. This year’s event didn’t disappoint.
