“Bands, beer, food, pool, darts & pinball. A little something for everyone, but if that still doesn't satisfy you, people feel very comfortable bringing in their own board games.”

“A nice coffee shop if you want to sip on a local roast or try something fancy. They also have a decent selection of cookies and baked goods if you need a quick, light breakfast.”

“My absolute favorite coffee shop. Chapelure is a fascinating mix of French and Asian baking, with a case full of pasteries and cakes, as well as an extensive stock of drink options, from coffees to teas to smoothies. I particularly like it in the summer time, as it's pretty much the best place in town to get a cold drink on a hot day.”

“Okay, okay... Biggby is a chain, but it started right here in East Lansing, MI the year I graduated high school and it quickly became a regular place to meetup. Now that they have expanded nearly nationwide, I love being able to stop in a location on my travels.”
