MAD Monday! MSU v PSU Blood Drive!

OK; the loss to Ohio was a shocker and disappointment.  Pooh.

But happily, this week and next you can participate in  Make A Difference Monday AND show your undying support to MSU!

That’s right, the MSU vs PSU Blood drive is ON!

From now until the 21 of November, you can show your Sparty colors by giving blood to the MSU vs PSU blood drive.  The blood drive challenge between MSU and Penn State started back in 1994 and is still going strong today.  MSU is currently in the “lead” with blood donations, and can only get stronger if you participate!  Blood drives are taking place on campus.  You can make an appointment or get more information about this challenge by calling (800) RED-CROSS, or  go to the website here…

Alice Cooper’s game pick! Go Green!

If you missed the very entertaining segment on ESPN’s Game Day featuring Alice Cooper, you might want to give it a watch.

Not only does Cooper arrive in style in his souped up MSU party wagon, he “emphatically” picks MSU over the Buckeyes for the win.

Watch the clip here (sorry, I don’t think it shows all the awesome goofiness of the fans in the background, like ketchup man and the banana kings, but hats off to you guys!)

Next Weekend:

Silver Bells in the City; Sugar House Blues! 

  • It’s finally here; the moment the whole city has waited a whole year for!  Well OK maybe not the whole city, but it DOES seem that this event is one of the most anticipated by locals every year.  And why not?  An electric light parade, fireworks, the lighting of the official state Christmas tree, and hot chocolate galore.  Not to mention face-painting, magicians, shopping, and freeze your face off fun!  If you have never experienced this Lansing tradition (30th year this time!!) you HAVE to try it out. For many folks it is a yearly ritual, and you might find yourself addicted too!  For more information go to the Silver Bells website by clicking the image below, and be sure to check out their facebook page for updates and hints on events and must see attractions.

MAD Monday ~ Giving Tuesday

Today’s MAD Monday event doesn’t happen for a while, so I’m giving you a head’s up about :

Giving Tuesday!  If you have a Twitter account, you have likely already come across #givingtuesday tags.  Giving Tuesday originally started off as a way to harness the holiday spirit prevalent in America during Thanksgiving and Christmas, and channel this energy toward making positive changes or contributions in a larger way.  In 2012 the first Giving Tuesday kicked off, and the hope since has been that after people have celebrated Thanksgiving, and considered all they are thankful for, and all they are looking forward to,  that they will turn around and give to others in their communities.

Weekend Report~ 10/23 ~ 10/27

Gearing up for the weekend, as Halloween comes creeping closely by!  Hey if you don’t celebrate Halloween, there are still plenty of things around Lansing to do, so here are just a few:

 

Wednesday

Head out to Eastwood Towne Center tonight to enjoy Claddagh’s celebration of “Beer Month”,  The Claddagh’s World Tour!  (I’d  call first ’cause space seems to be limited!)

Thursday:

Rosanne Cash is at the Wharton Center Thursday!  Not sure if it’s sold out, but you can find out by clicking her name or heading to the LuvLansing Calendar of events …

Friday:

Trick or Treat in Old Town with your favorite pooch!  Old Town’s “Doggy Trick or Treat” activities are Friday, though I’m unclear if this starts at 4 or 4:30, because the site lists both times.  But be down there with your best friend dressed and ready!

 

Visit the Shawhaven Haunted Farm  in Mason.

or the Boneyard in Stockbridge.  

 

I’m not sure why the Lansing area has such few haunted houses, but get out and support the ones we do have.  (otherwise go get the Fear Finder  newspaper I told you about earlier this month, and check out the billion other haunted houses and mazes in Michigan!!  Or just click above and see the map!) or come to think of it go here as well… Halloween in Michigan

 

Saturday:

The Lansing Halloween Party, “A Night of Hollywood Horror” is this Saturday.  Scheduled to start at 8:30 (6:30 for VIPs), and said to be held at the Lansing Center (though I couldn’t confirm this), this Lansing bash has a costume party, live music, dancing and more.  Find out about it by clicking the link above…

 

Last weekend for Boo at the Zoo, Potter Park’s annual fall/Halloween celebration.  But you have two days to get in if you have loads to do this weekend, so that helps!

 

Head out to the Lansing City Market for some safe trick or treating type goodies!

Sunday:

The always excellent David Sedaris is at the Wharton Center on Sunday!

Next Week:

27:  Don’t forget Trick or Treat on the Square is taking place on Monday, in Downtown.

 

28:  Next Tuesday you can also head out to the Eastwood Towne Center and enjoy the Halloween festivities there, which will include face painting, music, henna tattoos and lots more.
