Around Lansing This Weekend: Boots, Board Games, Bluegrass & More
While the calendar may have said it was spring a few weeks ago, this week has been the first time this season it's really begun to feel like it.
Want to get out and about and enjoy mid-April in Mid-Michigan? Here are a few things you might get into.
Antiques & April

Participating businesses include Maple Street Mall, Old Mill Antiques, Vintage Brook Nook, Simply Vintage Marketplace, Timeless Treasures, Magpie Tales, and Michigan Bard Wood & Salvage.
Whiskey Barrel Reunion
Country fans in and around Lansing remember the old Whiskey Barrel with great fondness. The Junction on S. Clippert St. in Lansing presents a Whiskey Barrel Reunion on Friday night (4/14) from 6pm to 2am. Organizers promise "everything you loved about the Whiskey Barrel - free line dancing, followed by a live concert, then request DJ all night." Rumors persist about a surprise guest everyone will be talking about!
MSU's Abrams Planetarium hosts its April program - Big Astronomy - every Friday and Saturday night as well as Sunday afternoons for the remainder of this month. Guests are invited to "explore the world-class observatories nestled in northern Chile’s mountains and learn why Chile is an ideal environment for studying the cosmos."
