Do you ever walk into a reception room at a conference or convention feeling a little socially awkward and think, "Well, I've introduced myself - Now what do I talk about?!" I'm guessing a lot of you have been in this awkward and lonely boat. I’ve been to many mixers, event receptions and conference socials and the ones that have a unique signature cocktail make it very easy to start a conversation with someone you don’t know yet, but want to get to know better as a potential business contact.
There’s no way you can attend a game or tailgate at Michigan State University without the appropriate apparel. You know what I’m talking about, right? Hey you, with the pink t-shirt on. For God’s sake, get some green and white on!!
Despite always saying that the only colors worth a dang around here are the Michigan State University colors of green and white, Greater Lansing has some pretty stunning foliage displays when Fall rolls around. While most folks will be sitting and driving in their car, we’re going to suggest that you get out and enjoy the beauty up close and personal. Here are suggestions for the best places to see those gorgeous reds, glorious oranges and vibrant yellows.

Planning a night out in Greater Lansing can be a real headache. Not because there’s nothing fun to choose from but because there is so much to do that it's hard to narrow down the list.
Summer is concert season in the mid-Michigan area and from time to time, musical acts treat concert-goers to more than great music and a good time. Sometimes they really leave a powerful and positive impression.

There's nothing like a day spent outdoors… and on two wheels. If you enjoy getting out on a bike, whether it's leisurely cruising on the waterfront or tearing up trails in the woods, the Greater Lansing region has options that can satisfy riders of all ages and skill levels.
If you are looking for a great way to spend an enjoyable – and very affordable – afternoon in a family friendly environment, look no further than the Potter Park Zoo. Michigan's first and oldest zoo, this Lansing area landmark has provided visitors with the opportunity to see a wide variety of animals from around the world for more than a century.
Summer is in the home stretch, but there’s still time to make great family memories before school starts. In a few months we’ll all be hunkered down indoors for another Michigan winter, so it’s time to enjoy warm weather outdoor activities with your kids before they are back on the school bus.
