He ate: South Lansing’s Golden Harvest?

by Mark Nixon
A print of Edward Hopper’s “Nighthawks” hangs in our living room. Four people are hunkered down inside a well-lit diner. The night is poised to invade. There’s a wrenching emptiness about the scene. Three customers sit at the counter, detached and lonely. Only the server behind the counter seems to be breathing.

She ate: More chorizo, please

by Gabrielle Johnson
When I was a kid, my parents used to take us out to breakfast every Sunday after church. We went through phases where we would try different restaurants, but our big three were Theio’s, the now defunct USA Café (They had sliders that I loved. Back then they were just called “tiny hamburgers.”), and Flap Jack. In the years since, I’ve looked around for a restaurant that could be my go-to weekend breakfast spot. The nearer to my house, the better. Now that Good Truckin’ Diner has arrived on the scene and their food truck has blossomed into a brickand-mortar business, I’m feeling good about my breakfast prospects.

MSU Museum showcases the movie posters of Art Sims

by Jonathan Griffith
Graphic design can be a peculiar art form, especially in terms of appreciation for the people behind it.

Lansing in perpetua

Igerslansing uses Instagram to build local connections

by Ty Forquer
Even if you don’t use Instagram, you are probably familiar with its output. It’s the mobile phone app that is responsible for those square, faux-vintage photos of your friends’ arugula salads that show up in your Facebook newsfeed. The photo-sharing app claims over 300 million active users posting 70 million photos per day. Users log in to show off their bed-head (using the Beyoncé-inspired hashtag #ijustwokeuplikethis) or to artfully showcase their espresso drinks (#latteart).

Thrifty business

REO Town hosts second annual Thrift Store Gala

by Ty Forquer
South Washington Avenue will be awash in second-hand suits and re-commissioned cocktail dresses Saturday as REO Town hosts the second annual Thrift Store Gala and Burlesque Extravaganza. The Thrift Store Gala portion of the evening is the brainchild of Ryan Wert, owner of REO Town’s Elm Street Recording. Wert was inspired by friends who host an annual “fancy party.” “Everyone dresses up in thrift shop suits and dresses and we drink champagne and Goldschläger,” Wert said.
