For the start of Totally Awesome Fest, Easter eggs were hidden around ypsilanti. There are still some undiscovered around town.

Garbage Disposal Love

My wonderful friend Sam found this sign in her neighbor's lawn. I would say garbage disposals are becoming the new box of chocolates.

A new delivery service is coming to town. DrinkDrivers is for the lazier, alcohol-inclined person in all of us. If you get easily annoyed by the bar scene, or anxiety going into the same liquor store that called your bluff at 19, then this is for you. DrinkDrivers works as a website, or an iPhone app. Their FAQ stresses that these are legal dealings, and every driver can recognize a fake. Download it, and try it out.

Launch: 2014 Senior Exhibition

Tonight, senior art students are holding receptions for their cumulative thesis work. Art will be displayed at the state street Work gallery, the Art and Design building on north campus, and at off-site galleries like the Yellow Barn. Check out snippets of students work here, and make it to the galleries between six and nine tonight to meet student artists. Tomorrow there will be another reception at 325 Braun Ct, for an exhibition titled Womyn.

Uber is coming to Ann Arbor

Yesterday, @Uber_AnnArbor followed us on the Twitter. If you're interested in disrupting things, you can sign up to be a driver here. I think I remember seeing that Lyft was coming to the area too, but my 15 seconds of googling didn't turn up what I had hoped.

Cool drawing of the Ypsi-Ann building

The Ypsi-Ann is one of my favorite buildings in Ann Arbor. In the building's first floor lobby, there's this nice drawing of the it.

Rock people invade the Diag

Over the last few days, I've noticed several rocks with googly eyes on the Diag. Has anyone else seen more of these guys?

Highlights from Ann Arbor's Community & Urban Forest Management Plan

Ann Arbor's 2014 Community & Urban Forest Management Plan is out! At 135 pages, it's definitely worth a read. Highlights include the annual value of Ann Arbor's urban forest (see above) and the usage of scientific names.

Detroit Week on Grantland

Friend of Damn Arbor, Chris Primeau, has turned us on to Detroit Week on Grantland. Grantland, as near as I can tell, is a website dedicated to writing about sport. This week they are publishing a series of long-reads about Detroit in honor of ESPN's upcoming "30 for 30: Bad Boys." So far there are articles about Dave Dombrowski, Elmore Leonard, and Berry Sanders. I think I'm most excited for the article about entertainment wrestling.
