NEW MILES, NEW PLANS MAKE 2015 THE YEAR OF RIVER TRAIL MADNESS

by Lawrence Cosentino
It was a lovely day. I was straddling my bike, looking south from Maguire Park, waiting for the signal to turn at Jolly Road. A stranger with an affable face and a tan jacket pulled his bike alongside me. Typical Sunday duffer, I thought. Suddenly, he turned and bared his teeth. River ...

The Knight Cap

by ALLAN I. ROSS
In the early ‘70s, a teenaged Leo Farhat was sitting in the dining room of the stillrelatively new Knight Cap in downtown Lansing when he looked around and told his date that he’d like to own the place someday. If a neighboring table of diners happened to overhear the conversation, they probably would have chalked it up to adolescent bravado, a boy just trying to impress a girl. More than 40 years later, that girl is a distant memory, but the restaurant is Farhat’s — lock, stock and sword-hilt door handle. Farhat reopened Knight Cap on Monday, effectively marking the fine dining staple’s second act.

Fresh face for Elderly

Popular instrument store begins work on mural project

by Ty Forquer
Elderly Instruments, Lansing’s famous purveyor of fine stringed instruments, is giving its Old Town headquarters a facelift. Los Angeles-based graphic artist Jennifer Springman began work on a Washington Avenue-facing mural June 8. Don’t worry, she isn’t messing with the historic brick exterior of the century-old former Oddfellows hall that houses the store’s showroom. The mural will occupy the wall of the building directly north of the showroom. Elderly Instruments, which moved into the Oddfellows hall in 1984, purchased the building next door in 1994.

Pass provides low-cost access to summer activities

by Sarah Spohn
We’ve all heard those ubiquitous “Pure Michigan” radio ads. If you haven’t heard Tim Allen waxing poetic about picturesque Michigan destinations, then you must be living under that very “rock” that fellow Michigander Bob Seger sings about. But when was the last time you got outside and actually explored those unique attractions and endearing small towns Allen describes so vividly? This summer, several area libraries are expanding outside of their summer reading programs and inviting library card holders to enjoy all the state has to offer.
