  • The Local Epicurean
    At The Local Epicurean, owner Ryan Raredon, who has been profiled in the Grand Rapids Press, began pasta making as a hobby, before success at selling his noodles and seasonings in farmers’ markets inspired him to open his own store, where a panoply of handmade herb-infused sundries now resides. From pasta-making, Ryan has now expanded his store to include a Chocolate Lounge filled with delectable selections of cocoa-based confections. The store's newest space boasts a full chocolate menu with a wide selection of organic coffee and tea. Guests can opt for the Lounge's signature "Cha-Co-Lot" drink, delicately crafted and served in an antique silver coffee pot, a slice of triple chocolate cheesecake, or head to the paring stand to sample hand-made chocolates, dipped berries, cheeses, and breads. Patrons can satisfy their sweet-tooth cravings at The Chocolate Lounge seven days a week.

  • Grand Rapids Film Festival
    When the organizers of Grand Rapids Film Festival look at a blank movie screen, they see a field of possibility?a fresh canvas onto which writers, actors, and filmmakers can channel their dreams. The festival showcases those dreams once each year during a multiday juried film competition, which takes place throughout the city. The festival generally bypasses mainstream flicks in favor of underground cinema, eye-opening documentaries, and films that highlight the region. There's something for virtually every viewer, from the family-friendly movies shown at the Grand Rapids Public Museum to the edgier films played during a brew-n-view segment at Pyramid Scheme.
