Stop! It's Ypsi Time!

Just a reminder that next weekend, July 7-8, is the Michigan Elvisfest in Riverside Park, Ypsilanti. Dust off your blue suede shoes and go listen to Elvis impersonators as well as tribute artists for Cher, Tom Jones, Ray Charles, and who-the-hell-knows-who-else. Or just have a beer with me at Aubree's or the Sidetrack or the Corner Brewery or wherever I end up going.

The following weekend I'll be in New Orleans attending a rather Bohemian wedding, but I encourage folks so inclined to head to the Corner Brewery in Ypsi on July 15 for the first-ever Shadow Art Fair, co-organized and sponsored by S&S friends Mark Maynard and Matt and Rene Greff. Hats off and beer mugs raised to these quality folk for their local community-mindedness.

The weekend after that, of course, is the long-awaited Michigan Brewers Guild Summer Beer Festival, July 21-22, also at Riverside Park. Only a total loser would miss it.
