If your looking for something to do this weekend in Grand Rapids, there are several options. If you like rugby, I've been working with the Davenport University Rugby team in a Strength and Conditioning aspect. Its been fun watching the guys learn correct technique and get stronger. It's even been more of a blast watching them play. In three games they have won by a combined score 218-0. This week they play cross town rival Calvin. The match kicks off at 1 pm at Davenport University.
If you like art, there are some really cool stuff all over downtown for the next few weeks. Thanks to the 449,000 dollar prize money, there are over 130 pieces displayed all over the downtown area. Grab a map and some comfortable walking shoes.
At John Ball Zoo, the anuall Octoberfest is going on. It last only Friday and Saturday, so don't miss out. They have some great beer and great atmosphere.
On a side note, I've been thinking about service and my question is how in the world does Blockbuster plan to stay in business? A new release is 4.99 cents. I can go to redbox and get the same movie for 1.00. I can join one of the online services for like ten bucks a month. AT & T cable service allows one to order movies directly on your t.v. There is even the cheap theatre that shows the movies for 3 bucks! I don't see how they will make it.
Have a great weekend!
