CHEERS! Here comes the September issue of Grand Rapids Magazine!

Who says September needs to mean the end of summer? We’re clinging to those summer vibes with everything we’ve got! Many people think of Grand Rapids as ‘Beer City, USA’, but don’t overlook the margarita’s place in GR’s drinking culture. As a nice little icebreaker for this issue, we’ve selected our top 5 margaritas for you to try.

Millennials are often pegged as “followers”, but GR’s millennials are forging their own paths when it comes to choosing a place to live. In ‘Bucking the trend’ we’ll explore the factors that really matter to them when buying a house. Another feature, ‘Getting crafty’, introduces readers to several amazing local artisans.

September is also the kickoff of the arts season — so, naturally, our annual ‘Arts Preview’ returns with performing arts previews and schedules galore. And, of course, there’s ArtPrize!

Other highlights include a visit to the new interactive community gallery Muse GR, a profile of Zoko 822 Executive Chef, Ryan Martin, and a Dining Review of Donkey Taqueria. Of course, there’s our famous 2-for-1 Dining Coupon; this month, enjoy Charley’s Crab!

And what special issue would be complete without special sections? The quarterly Grand Rapids Home section explores the classic look of natural products, fall getaways abound in Grand Traveler, and the annual 495GR section returns with a focus on local companies and organizations that are ‘Impacting Grand Rapids’.

Lastly, we’re into the final month of the 16th Annual Best of Grand Rapids Readers Poll — voting remains open until September 21st (for those of you that haven’t voted yet). Vote online now and follow along on social media at #bestofgr!
