Bar Scene Remains Unchanged (Meanwhile….) E-mail
Here is my usual experience when I go “out to the bar”: I pay too much for bad drinks, there is nowhere to sit, and I am assaulted with bad music, neon beer signs, and several football games I don’t care about.

Here is my experience with a new bar in town: I buy a couple of delicious Michigan beers for my wife and me at a reasonable price. Eclectic music fits nicely into the background while we have a chat with some friends. I’m talking about The Meanwhile Bar on the corner of Wealthy and Diamond.

Yesterdog Documentary Captures Institution's Nostalgia E-mail
Bill Lewis is a modest man. He’s a regular guy. The kind of guy you might see at the gas station buying a morning coffee and doughnut. He looks like somebody’s uncle. Among the various Eastown boutiques, coffee shops, and book stores, Bill sells…hot dogs. As you may have guessed by now, Bill owns Yesterdog (everyone been there? Good) in the eclectic neighborhood on GR's southeast side.

On the subject of this unassuming Grand Rapids institution is a new documentary entitled “The Yesterdog Documentary”.
