In an issue that scoops up stories of impactful entrepreneurship, medical innovators, and volunteerism, you’ll first meet Tara VanWagoner, owner of Cone Appétit, a local ice cream business that donates part of every sale to help fight human trafficking and sexual exploitation.

‘Quality of Life’ examines the impact of GR’s Medical Mile, including the people and institutions that are driving collaboration, improving access, prioritizing care and enriching the community.

In ‘For the Love of Volunteering’, we introduce you to several of the countless people throughout the area that find unique ways to use their talents, time and energy for the greater good.

Other highlights include a dining review of Butcher’s Union, one the west side’s most trendy/popular eateries (and winner of our 2017 Best New Restaurant award), beer columnist Pat Evans’ look at Founders new easy-drinking lager, Solid Gold, our ‘top 5 sporting goods stores’, and much more. Of course, we also have our famous 2-for-1 Dining Coupon – this month’s restaurant is CitySen Lounge, located in downtown GR at CityFlatsHotel.

Stay cool, Grand Rapids!
