    The Standby and The Skip are awesome.

    Sorta wish I had done Tigers game but now content exploring all these nooks. Lot of Atlanta vibes.

    Feels like a beautiful day for college football today.

    Anyone play Coyote Golf Club in Lyon Township lately? Have a tee time there tomorrow.

    I played there back in April. Probably won’t go back, but it’s decent for the price. Pace of play was super slow. Will probably be even worse worse tomorrow, but should be beautiful day outside. Have fun

    I'm pretty out of date, but that seems achievable. Perhaps some current locals will have specific recommendations.

    Seems like pace of play is a common complaint. Will make me a little tense when I'm on 16 after 5 hours and my wife is texting about dinner. The beer will help.

    Holy shit, that was a 5.5 hour round. The course is a little gimmicky, which makes for slow groups. Probably won't play it again anytime soon.

    Heading up to Suttons Bay next week. Anything new(restaurants, breweries, etc.) that opened up since last summer worth checking out in that area or around Traverse City?

    Yeah. We've gone there every year since they've been open. It seems to get better each year. We'll try to go there when they have live music playing some night this week.

    Normally I'm done with summer weather by mid-August. I've been yearning for September nights since last week.

    Although last night was pretty perfect.

    Beautiful weekend imo. Few things better in life than being outside in the morning at the end of summer and getting an hour of that cool crisp air that lets you know football is coming :ahh:

    It's going to be an apple-tastic fall. Get the mills up and running!

    Michigan apple lovers will be overjoyed with the apple crop this fall.

    As the apple harvest is getting underway, the overall crop is expected to be a bushel buster.

    The Michigan Apple Committee on Friday announced a crop estimate of a whopping 29.5 million bushels, per the annual U.S. Apple Outlook's August meeting in Chicago. All those apples equate to 1.239 billion pounds of apples.


    That estimate marks growers harvesting more than 10 million more // bushels than in the 2021 season. Michigan apple growers produced 15.6 million bushels last year, according to the U.S. Department of Agriculture.

    “Ideal weather conditions in spring and summer, dedicated growers and stored energy from 2021’s smaller crop has resulted in a large, high-quality apple crop for Michigan,” said Diane Smith, executive director of the Michigan Apple Committee in a news release.

    Franklin is very solid. It’s closer to me than Yates, but I always forget about it.

    My sophomore season in HS, we played a Canadian team from Windsor or something like that. They kept getting illegal motion penalties and punted on 3rd down a few times.

    Oof. Mine flickered for about 20 seconds last night but I got lucky. Looks like a lot of Ann Arbor is out based on traffic lights this morning.

    DTE’s outage map is really cool because not only does it not tell me when to expect my power to be back on, but it also flaunts that like 90% of their customers are currently enjoying power.
