Grand Rapids impromptu drink?

We're doing a 7 hour drive down from northern Ontario, Canada, to Grand Rapids tomorrow (Sunday) to adopt a rescue dog that we're all very excited about. We're hoping to arrive Grand Rapids at dinner time and settle into the Ramada on 28th St., letting the kids swim for a while, but if anyone's in for a nightcap, I've never been to Grand Rapids.

Ya, Michigan. Forgot that part.

Mention GR and 28th street and the locals do not need the MI tag. :)

Anyway, I will miss this shindig, and will rather be baking in the Jersey heat. If you find yourself with time to kill, you might consider taking the kids to the Meijer Gardens.

Ah, too bad you're not around. I wondered what the Meijer Gardens was when we passed it. I don't think we'll have time for it, sadly. But I'm sitting here at poolside while they go down this cool waterslide over and over, so they're having a blast.
I may walk up the road to the "Grand Rapids Brewing Company" I saw on the way in and have myself a meetup of one.

Not that I've ever been to a meetup, but I was JUST in the Grand Rapids area for the last 4 days - but we got home today. Bummer!

Man! I missed this one. I guess I picked the wrong week to quit reading MetaTalk obsessively.

Oh, bummer. I was out of town last weekend. Hope had a good time with the family and are enjoying the new addition!
