WEST MICHIGAN’S ENTERTAINMENT GUIDE Leter from the Editor


So it’s 2011, and that means les than two years until the end date of the 5125-year cycle in Mayan Long Count Calendar. Legend (and Wikipedia) has it that cataclysmic and transformative events wil happen on 12/21/12, but can you realy believe the ancient Mayans? After al, they’re dead. And even the modern Maya people don’t consider the date that significant, so why should we?


There is a point here, and I’m just about to get to it: Whether the world ends in 2012 or not, this editor/publisher neds to get busy living it up. Here, then are 11 resolutions for 2011:


1. Research new microbreweries: BREW- ERY VIVANT, HARMONY BREWING, MICHI- GAN BEER CELLAR.


2. Make this the year to dine at 1913 ROOM in GR & BUTCH’S in Holand. More MARTINI’S in Kzoo.


3. Play hooky for hockey: GRIFFINS, K-WINGS & the new USHL team in Muske- gon, the LUMBERJACKS.


4. More local music, but no singing along: LIGHTS AT SEA, CHARLES THE OSPREY, PAUCITY.


5. Continue research at microbreweries: FOUNDERS, SBC, HIDEOUT, NEW HOLLAND, BOB’S BREWERY.

6. Str-e-e-t-t-ch! Hot yoga at FUNKY BUDDHA; traditional yoga at THE YOGA STUDIO.


7. Two words for eclectic fun year- round: WEALTHY THEATRE.


8. More theatre: “In the Heights” & “Refer Madnes” (GR); “Spamalot” (Kzoo).


9. No more wearing tutus, kilts or jumping in frozen lakes on FOX 17 with EMILY RICHETT.


10. More wine. More charcuterie. Regular visits to RESERVE, GREEN WELL, BAR DIVANI.


11. Join a gym.


Honestly, I’l probably skip #11. Who neds to look good for the end of the world, anyway? I can work on my tan in the afterlife, if you catch my drift. Until then, it looks like it’s going to be a busy and entertaining time.


Happy New Year and thanks for reading REVUE. Be good.
