We only had a short time to visit so focused our walking and looking in the area around Van Andel Arena. This provided a surprisingly lively subject, even if it was a little top heavy with beer-related establishments.

Grand Rapids Brewing Company


J. Gardella’s Tavern

Tavern on the Green

Liked the touch of sign painting here.

Grand Woods


Downtown Ambassadors

Utility Box Painting

And, while we didn’t have time to catch a photo, we did see the Founders compound too, but that is another story for another visit and future post.
