Art fair is a drat nuisance, though, so there's at least one good thing about this plague.

Ann Arbor is a very middle of the road town but everyone falls over themselves to talk about how amazing it is that I find myself constantly being disappointed in it where normally I just wouldn't give a poo poo.

Art Fair being cancelled is a huge plus in the cities favor this year tho

A bunch of summer festivals in Traverse City (Cherry Festival, Film Festival) are also cancelled this year. No word about the apple festival in Charlevoix yet, but I'm not holding out too much hope.

And yet for some strange reason the Renaissance Faire is still acting like they're going forward. I'm taking a break from working it this year anyway but I can't see them actually having it still. The owners are kinda nuts though so we'll see. Just sad for the performers and vendors losing so much because apparently insurance and the owners won't be helping out for this situation. It's crap.

Right, I'm coming from Boston though, so driving through Canada saves me 3+ hours vs going around the lake through Toledo, even with waits at the borders.
The only reason I mentioned Detroit is I had previously flown into Detroit and driven to Petoskey, and my MI geography is poor. Well, was poor, getting better.

There is a chance they might open the border next month. We'll see.


If the border re-opens next month it's because the United States flexed muscle and forced it.

We're starting to get our infections under control up here and we'd like to keep it that way.

There are so many places in this state that actually loving suck so just lol if you think Ann Arbor does.

For example

or like that town where the KKK used to have their headquarters for a while


it is a bit overrated though I will agree, but Art Fair is fun to go to once every handful of years

Rick Snyder bought the condo on Main Street above a jewelry store, so we need to calibrate our perceptions of how progressive the place could be.

Most wealthy parts of Oakland County are way worse about this than Ann Arbor.

You have to voice a lot of support for equality so that you can be smug about your white privilege.

I was born and raised in China, lived in Japan, and now hold a US passport.

I am wrong in every way, all the damn time.

Ask me about my tattoos.


I imagine the Art Fair is cool if you live really close, super lovely if you live kinda close but not walkable, and not really an issue if you live further away.

AA isn't necessarily the bee's knees but there aren't too many places I'd choose to live over AA in Michigan.

What part is super lovely, the increased traffic around town for residents? Or having to pay to park if you want to go but aren't close enough for it to be walkable? Having experienced both I don't think parking is that big of a deal if you show up early enough, also they have shuttles to get you there if you park further away. For residents, it's no worse than a football home game.

Okay, maybe "super lovely" is a bit of an exaggeration but I imagine it's at least a bit annoying if people aren't super keen about going to it.

Just wanted to stop in and say that the deli pizzas in the fridge at Meijer are pretty good. $8.50 gets you a decent supreme pie that only takes about 15 minutes to cook. It's been about an hour and the heartburn hasn't kicked in so I think I'd recommend it over Domino's atp

It's been a couple decades since I lived in walking distance of town, but that was my peak of art fair hatred. Walking takes a lot longer, restaurants all have lines, nothing was simple. When I lived farther away, I had a much better apartment, and it was easier to plan around the crowds.

Ann Arbor is full of rapists and bougie fucks who use the mask of progressivism to huff their own farts about how cool they are and convince themselves that it's okay to spit on homeless people. Unless you've been homeless in this town you have no idea how rank the underbelly is.

E: also art fair and hash bash are loving terrible if you have to work downtown or do anything down there.

Regardless of whatever city weíre talking about weíre still surrounded by plains prairies and corn and while the Great Lakes help it suck less, the entire region still sucks

Iíll take it over somewhere like the Iowa or somewhere colder like MN but at the end of the day weíre still effectively a flyover state.
