Game Day on a Budget

Gearing up for Football Saturdays, upperclassmen warn against the perils of being a ‘WalMart Wolverine,’ but we’re not all in a position to drop a couple hundred dollars on The M Den’s “Victor’s” Brand.

Start instead at the PTO Thrift Store (2280 S. Industrial Hwy) or the Salvation Army (behind the CVS off S. Industrial). The extra digging through scuffed bowling shoes and piles of duplicated “Bring It On” VHS tapes will be well worth it. Don’t be overwhelmed by the store’s size, just head to the men’s shirt section for a worn-in National Champs t-shirt or vintage jersey. While you’re at it, buy yourself a pair of high-waisted Levi’s to make into cutoffs. You know Urban Outfitters buys them in bulk and resells them for 60 bucks a pop, right?

If human interaction isn’t your thing, a number of stores like Victoria’s Secret and American Eagle have created online-only college apparel lines with hoodies, t-shirts, and hats, and, somewhat begrudgingly, I admit, most of the AE pieces are really cute.

For something trendier, Underground Printing’s ‘Bo Shembechler’ store in the Busch’s shopping center at South Main and Ann Arbor Saline Road, has both your standard striped Maize and Blue overalls mixed in with higher quality cozy sweatshirts for those colder game days, a younger-targeted alternative to The M Den with better pricing. (currently writing this wearing the Bo SIG Cozy Crew in denim color).

A Physician’s Perspective on Legalized Cannabis

On Tuesday, November 6th, Michigan became the 10th state to legalize cannabis for recreational use. Ten years ago, we had become the 13th state to legalize Cannabis for medical use. I voted for the medical cannabis law years ago because, in my view, cannabis is not a dangerous product, and too many people were being imprisoned for its use. At that time, however, I did not subscribe to the argument that there were legitimate medical uses for cannabis. How things have changed.

Tiny Expo at Ann Arbor District Library—A Curated Holiday Gift Fair with Flair

The Tiny Expo is a gem of an indie arts and crafts fair for vendors with original and unexpected products that make wonderful gifts but may not be an obvious fit for Ann Arbor’s mainstream art fairs. Shoppers who crave artistic, high quality products with diverse price points will find a rich variety of unique, handmade products to choose from.
