Time to put all your pop culture, history, and whatever miscellaneous knowledge you’ve conjured up

With a favorite club in hand and the hole little more than 100 yards away, it’s still nerve-wracking to stand on the 17th tee at Eagle Eye Golf Club. Even with only pride at stake.
With a slight chance of rain later in the day on Saturday, it looks like the forecast for Be A Tourist In Your Own Town this year is a good one. But it’s always a prudent idea to make provisions just in case the rain starts to fall.

I'm a sucker for big, brawny stouts. And coffee. And chocolate. Give me one of the three, I'm a happy camper. Get me two in a brew, I'll salute you. Combine all three, I'll worship the ground on which the brewers walk.
That's what makes it easy to make the rounds around Lansing, where creative craft beer, soon-to-be legendary liquors and winsome wines are making their mark as part of the Makers & Shakers beer, wine and spirits trail.
The thirsty tour around Greater Lansing has grown to 17 stops in just a matter of a few years. The taps, outside of a few mainstays at each brewery, are liable to rotate seasonally, just as the distillers are dedicating time to try new cocktail recipes.
