When door-to-door canvassing for the civil liberties of corgis leaves your midday mouth watering, make a pit stop at Mudgie's, where the menu boasts more than 20 specialty sandwich selections filled with hearty portions of house-cooked meats and local products. Stop by for a Madill ($9), the warm, open-face delight of roasted turkey, smoked bacon, veggies, melted pepper jack, and house-made garlic mayo that was crowned one of Detroit Free Press's Top 21 sandwiches of 2008. Or opt for the That's Jared ($8.75), a warm kaiser roll topped with corned beef and swiss cheese buried under a scoop of house-made redskin potato salad. Homemade soups debut fresh flavors daily ($3.75/cup), while fresh salads (starting at $2.50) and an abundance of vegetarian and vegan sandwiches round out the menu.

The black-tie-and-tennis-shoe dress code at Tuxes & Tennies prompts a night of revelry and fun to raise money for the Humane Society of West Michigan, providing food, vaccines, and other essentials to animals in need. From 8 p.m. to 1 a.m., the good-spirited jamboree encourages merrymaking with wild jungle decorations, '80s music, and dancing fueled by libations from the cash bar and really invasive disco balls. After working up an appetite from rug cutting and crowd surfing, guests can refuel with light appetizers or by admiring the sneakers of party mates.

Since 1988, Pet Supplies Plus has welcomed millions of furry critters of every stripe—from llamas and monkeys to potbellied pigs—into their animal-friendly stores. The shop is designed so that both pets and their owners can easily navigate the inventory of more than 10,000 items. Wide aisles give leashed pups enough room to roam, colorful signage keeps shoppers moving in the right direction, and low shelves allow dogs to sniff out their preferred brand of rawhide chew. A self-serve dog wash enables guests to scrub their canine companions' coats to a youthful, puppy-like shine, whereas grooming services enlist professionals to tackle tougher jobs, such as brushing out matted fur or convincing dalmatians to stop mixing white and black after Labor Day.

It's not quite enough for animal-lover Lindsay Archer to spend time with pets all day long at her day job as a veterinary technician. So she opens her home to pets whose owners need a few days away. Beyond taking in dogs and cats, she also watches other domestic animals, such as guinea pigs.

A friendly staff of animal experts guides visitors to the right gear for their particular pet project, whether it's to eradicate mid-Thanksgiving silences with a Teach Your Parrot to Talk CD ($20) or to teach a lizard to properly lounge on a Zilla aquatic basking platform (from $19.99). Sweeping selections of ethically raised animals, including clownfish ($24.99), cleaner shrimp ($24.99), gerbils ($14.99), hamsters ($12.99–$19.99), and guinea pigs ($14.99–$49.99), populate the vivacious store, which is committed to eco-friendly business practices.
