Snyder's BBQ & Meat Market co-owners Kraig and Sue Snyder cater to carnivores of all stripes with their selection of high-quality raw meats and prepared foods. Inside the store’s display cases are USDA Choice and higher all-natural beef made without hormones, sausages crafted in-house with lean pork, and hand-picked chicken breasts marinated with seasonings such as garlic butter. Fresh and frozen seafood varieties include wild-caught cuts such as sockeye salmon and mahi mahi. Deli adornments such as specialty cheese and dips reside beside handmade chicken, macaroni, and potato salads.

The market’s pizzeria, meanwhile, turns out hot, doughy pizzas topped with cheese, veggies, and meat, while frozen to-go meals, such as penne pasta with marinara, can be taken home and heated or worn around town as a poorly conceived Halloween costume. Flagship and seasonal beers from local microbreweries, as well as numerous wine varietals, help to wash down meals.

On April 5, 2012, the Bulldogs found themselves down 1-0 in their NCAA Frozen Four semi-final match-up against Union. Undeterred, they tied the game in the second period, and ultimately won on a clutch goal late in the final period. The victory vaulted Ferris State into its first-ever National Championship game, where it ultimately fell just short of a title. Still, it was another feat added to a list of accomplishments that has been growing since the team?s first season in 1975. In that time, the Bulldogs have also earned the distinction as the nation?s first team to eclipse 30 wins, which they did in 2002-03. Much of the university?s icy success has come under the tutelage of Bob Daniels, a living legend who has coached the team since 1992 and, in the process, has earned the right to be dipped in gold the moment he retires.

The staff members at Sylvan Learning Center's numerous study facilities understand that each child learns differently. Therefore, they don?t try to implement a uniform tutoring system; instead, they design custom lesson programs based on the results of standardized testing, diagnostic tools, and one-on-one interviews.

Tutors work with students from kindergarten through grade 12, illuminating topics ranging from basic reading and writing to remembering complex algebraic formulas without having them tattooed on your chest. Many of Sylvan?s instructors work in local schools, so they are intimately familiar with common curricula and understand how to gear lessons toward optimal results. After-school and summer classes can ready high-schoolers for the rigors of the ACT or the SAT, or they can help students to wow college-admissions officers with their superior essay-writing skills.

Oasis Hot Tub Gardens instantly transports visitors on mini vacations to other parts of the globe. Each private area?some indoor and some outdoor?takes on a theme of an exotic oasis, from the Isle Royale to a beautiful garden in Japan to the wild hot tubs that grow in the world's secluded forests. Those all become the backdrops for hours of relaxation within hot waters, which stay at a comfortable 102 degrees during the Fall and Winter and 96?100 degrees in Spring and Summer. Should customers need anything, say a change in tub temperature, all they need to do is make a request over the room's intercom?never having to leave their tiny slice of paradise. The private suites house other comforts too, namely stereos, dressing areas, and showers.
