Club life

The joys and pains of running a nightclub in Lansing

by ALLAN I. ROSS
Last week, Bar 30 closed after an underwhelming 10 months of business. Situated in the Heights at Eastwood, a still-under-construction lifestyle center north of Eastwood Towne Center in Lansing Township, the high concept entertainment/food venue had its challenges from the get-go — for starters, a touchy economy and a not-quite-ready-for prime-time location.

The hops and the hound

Lansing man spins his love of beer into part-time gig

by ALLAN I. ROSS
Beer, as Homer Simpson famously toasted, is the cause of, and solution to, all of life's problems. Well, it was something close to that, at least. Either way, we're willing to bet he never thought of turning it into a sideline profession.

Oh, you pretty things

Local photographer transforms women into pin-ups

Some say nostalgia in fashion trends runs on a 20-year cycle. Others put it at around 50.
