MATT GIRAUD BACK IN TOWN.

July 23, 2014

MATT GIRAUD BACK IN TOWN.

Why is Matt Giraud smiling? Probably because he's from America's High Five. And probably because he's back in The Mitten this weekend. Check him out at Warner Vineyards, one of Michigan's oldest wineries, this weekend! He'll be in K-Zoo in early August if you can't make it this weekend. :)

BIG SID.

July 23, 2014

BIG SID.

You know, there was a time before Twitter and YouTube made things go viral. Every once in a while, strange events would occur that would, despite the technological drawbacks, go "viral". Big Sid during the summer of '78 is one of them. A 14 foot circus python escaped in western Michigan, setting off a media frenzy and panic among residents. Children and pets were kept indoors, swimmers stopped using pools. All summer long, people asked "Where's Sid?!"

 

Home of Big Sid

 

Weeks after his disappearance on June 24, he was finally caught, officially ending a craze that had lasted all summer. One that included a "Sidwalk Sale" in Standale, Michigan complete with tees, pizza, and doughnuts inspired by Big Sid.

 

Big Sid Is Caught

 

To celebrate this amazing story, we've carefully recreated one of the original tees sold in Standale that summer. Nab one here for a limited time!

HAPPY BIRTHDAY TO BARRY SANDERS

"I had the fortune to be drafted to a wonderful city. I fit in there perfectly... because... when you're drafted, you never know where you're going to end up - but there was no better place for me than Detroit."

 

Happy Birthday to the one and only Barry Sanders!
