Gentle readers, have any of you had an chance to use these bikes yet?
Back in 2011, when we were young, we posted a friend's recipe for what he calls a "Motor City Mixer:" Double shot of vodka, glass of ice, Faygo Rock & Rye. Our good friends over on Gawker have posted a list of the 13 finest regional cocktails. To the chagrin of several commentors, the original Gawker list lacks any Detroit regional cocktails. Fortunately the commentors were quick to provide suggestions of their favorite Detroit regional cocktails:
1. The Ambassador: Vernors and Canadian ClubGentle readers, do you have any suggestions for regional cocktails? Perhaps some that do not involve industrial waste?
2. Zug Island Iced Tea: Canadian Club, Popov, Five O'Clock Gin, and El Toro Tequila topped with Faygo Moon Mist. Strain through an asbestos filter and serving over chilled Detroit River Rocks.
Gentle readers, are you ready for some exciting news? Damn Arbor's very own Erika Jost is making her professional theater debut tonight in Encore Theater's production of Monty Python's Spamalot. I saw the dress rehearsal last night and I can attest that the show is awesome. It has everything you could every want in a musical: singing, dancing, British humor, and a marriage. You should definitely check it out.
The founding members of Russian punk art collective, Pussy Riot, are giving the Penny Stamps lecture tomorrow at the Michigan Theater. The lecture starts at 5:10 pm and is free and open to the public.
Hey Reddit, this is Vincent Smith, yes I got hit by Clowney, and more important we are working to bring community gardens as a project after playing football.Pretty cool.
The idea was to network with Alumni to do great things with our football fame and success. So I am posting to get suggestions on how to grow more and invite everyone to make suggestions so we can get bigger and better.
Right now we are just starting and we have one garden up and are working on getting another here in Michigan.
We want to let people know about what we are doing, and also to let you know that we will be around this fall in town and we are set up in the old Le Dog on Liberty with some tshirts and are telling you because reddit helped us get our start with our project (called the #EATING project). So if you want to hang out or say whats up or bring your kids to play catch come on by. I will also be around for tailgating.
Tl;Dr We played football for Michigan, now we plant gardens. Help us if you have ideas of time.
Beer in Michigan is a way of life, an economic booster that’s helping Detroit pull out of the apocalypse and a soul cleanser up in the UP, where long winters are made better with a growler from Ore Dock. And if that’s not convincing enough, consider this: in Ann Arbor and East Lansing, when the chaos of a tailgate clears, you’ll see as many empty bottles of craft beer scattered about as you will tallboys with holes punched in the side. In Michigan, beer love starts early.
