      @longstride And now I actually know where Grand Rapids (and of course Rockford) really is. (Lived in Jackson for 5+ years in the 90s, but never went anyplace in W MI.)

        @holbrook you missed out. The west side is the best side. I can’t believe I just said that.

          @longstride I’ll take your word for it. I was not a fan of MI, though I did like Zingerman’s. And Border’s, but oh well. (Worked at UM.)

            @holbrook Michigan’s nature is amazing. Its people? Nice on the face of it, but there’s a reason I’m leaving soon.

              @longstride And I never made it up to the UP, which people say is great. And where are you headed? (I headed down to Atl, where I remain 16 year after I left the chill of Southern MI.)

                @holbrook missin’ da UP is a sin. If all goes according to plan (ha!) I’ll be going nowhere. Well, a little bit of everywhere. I’m hitting the road.

                  @longstride Apparently I won't be making it. I didn't see that it was happening until after I made plans for the evening.

                    @aardvark sorry, man. I should’ve roped you in earlier. I totally forgot. My mind has been pretty loopy this week.

                      @longstride Cool, thanks for organizing. Are you taking RSVPs somewhere? If you think of it, it would be awesome if you snapped a few pics of the crew that ends up there

                        @ben no RSVPs. It’s pretty informal. We’re shy, too, but I’ll see what I can do about taking some photos :)

                          @longstride Oh if only you were doing this during a weekend I am in town!

                                @joshpennington pfffft. That’s not so far! Swing on by and lift a glass with us. We’ve got someone coming up from Kalamazoo :)

                                  @longstride I'll have to see if I can change some plans. Next one for sure though!
