Keeping it classy.
We were moved upstairs, so all the way in the back, UPSTAIRS.
Founders at 1:30! Chris promised he’d get there early and snag us all the patio tables.
They let anyone in here.
We’re set up off in a side room with less people, less noise, but more awesome.
So, just throwing something out there for everyone coming to Grand Rapids for MITU. Sarah (inmi) and I wanted to do something laid back for the first afternoon here, so we’re going to be making carnitas at my house on Friday afternoon. This won’t interfere with the awesome whiskey bar, but just be…
Lodging: the rooms are cheaper than last year because I heard some grumbling. It’s a couple miles out of downtown, but free parking and GR is worth the trek. Discounted block is under MITU.
Friday night: This whiskey bar is so great. And cheap drinks, yay!
Saturday night: The same venue as last year but we’re in the newly remodeled basement this year. And we’re not assaulted with Douchebag Brigade this year.
Sunday breakfast: I fell in love with this place last year, it’s so adorable. Reservation is under MITU and it’s set for 10:00 so you can sleep off most of your hangover.
There are some fantastic breweries in Grand Rapids and I thought maybe Saturday would be a perfect day to explore them. It’s not a formal event because with Art Prize in town, and so much to see, I hate to make people feel obligated to sign on for “activities.” Just let me know if you’re interested in exploring the voracity of your liver on Saturday.
