    If anyone needs a good plumber in the Berkley/RO/Troy area, I recommend Precision Plumbing.

    This is my good deed for the day.

    #Michigan State Spartans any of you have 5 tickets on the low for the game against Western? Trying to convince my cousin to go to State and want to take her to a game.

    They’re $30 on stubhub right now and will probably be less than $20 by kickoff.

    Going up and staying on Lake Charlevoix next week. Any recommendations on things to check out? Bars, restaurants, etc?

    Hit up the Landing for sure. Bar/restaurant right by the Ironton Ferry. Great vibe

    Hit up Crossroads in Rapid City. About an hour south, but worth the drive. Great food.

    If you have a boat, hit the landings for lunch then head over to oyster bay and drop anchor for the afternoon.

    In charlevoix itself, for the classic charlevoix experience go to Terry’s for dinner and get the whitefish. I prefer the grey gables though - get a hummer there after dinner. There are some good newer spots that are more casual (the tap room, the cantina). Not sure what side of the lake you are staying on but Boyne city has better restaurant options if you ask me... cafe sante, red Mesa, and some newer brew pubs whose names I can’t remember.

    If you’re golfing play the Belvedere.

    There isn’t much of a bar scene anymore, especially during non-peak weekends. The townhouse usually has a crowd but that tends to skew local.

    Also, I've been going to Lake Charlevoix for about 15 years (and Traverse City for 20 before that) and had never heard of Belvedere. We've always played a Boyne course or Bay Harbor. A guy at work brought in Golf Digest's Top 100 Public Courses earlier this summer and we saw it on there, so we switched it up. Fantastic, and $100 isn't bad for a course that caliber.

    Love Bay Harbor, never played the course though. My college GF's family had a place up there, it was great. We are working on meeting up there before the good weather dies.

    We're staying on the South side of the lake so The Landing is right down the street. I'll definitely check that out along with some of the others. Thanks for the info. I'm also assuming that the Crossroads that was mentioned above is the strip club. I may or may not check that out.

    Random question, but has anyone had difficult returning empty cans of beer (griffin claw, odd side, shorts) to the bottle return at the store? The machines at Meijer never take them.

    Meijer generally takes mostly everything
    But if it’s a cider or anything , there’s no deposit on those
    They also don’t take things they don’t sell

    I’ll sometimes return at fresh thyme and whatever they don’t take I’ll bring into the store and talk to someone
    Then I’ll count em out and they give me the cash

    Make sure you find some non 75 alternatives and are comfortable with those commute times as well if you consider it.

    I do close to the opposite of that (work in Oxford) and it's terrible. I go into work each morning early enough that traffic on 75 isn't an issue (still 50 min), but rarely can take 75 home. My alternate takes me 80 minites, 75 would be 100+ most days.

    Cant say for sure how it works in the opposite direction, but weigh that heavily when making your decision. My commute is miserable and I hate it so much.
