I've noticed rapidly growing numbers of local restaurants banding together to open full operations again in order to make sure their employees are able to feed their families and keep the lights on.

They are NOT branding it as any kind of political statement but as a humanitarian last resort to keep from closing for good.

Damn proud of my little part of the mitten today


Anyone seeing similar things in their area?

Yup local Honky Tonk was getting half barrels delivered. We have a winter weather advisory, so I don't think they are going to be drinking outdoors.

Oh and the tents have been removed, only the frames are left. They'll be back up come spring.

Then again , it's deer season here and the hunters would like to warm up and clean up at the bar. The bars have to make bank before Monday since the firearm season ends

Yep, at least one restaurant is open close by.  Seems very busy too.

People started leaving one star reviews because they were open.  So I started reporting all of the one star reviews.  Make sure to stick up for these guys even if you don't visit them!

Well, word has it that Stretchin' Gretch's minions with the food and liquor boards are going around threatening
to pull licenses from anyone who stays open under their "emergency powers"

Go hungry and fall behind on your mortgage, for your own safety, comrades!

How long till groups of people are running those state employees out of town?

The state will not tolerate independence (or even the thought of it).

MLCC suspends another 8 liquor licenses, including Andiamo Warren

The owner of Andiamo proposed restaurant owners getting together to oppose the shut down.

There are a few, but I have not been to them.  Stand Up Michigan has a list of restaurants.

There was an article I saw that said 1/3 of Michigan's restaurants think they may close permanently sometime next year. Might as well open and ignore all her bullshit. If they pull the liquor license sell it anyway. What do they have to lose?
Let wHitler go all commie enough and even the sheeple of the state might finally decide they've had enough.

I haven't seen any open around here.  Drive-through's are full though.  We've lost at least 1/2 dozen restaurants already.  I'm sure we will lose more before spring.

Just plug your ZIP code into this site, and it'll show who is staying open;

There's a Mom and Pop place north of 14 Mile road that is reputed to be open to indoor dining.
I plan on having breakfast there on Sunday.
Evidently, the owner feels like there's nothing left to lose.

This won't stop until we all just say, "Enough" and I'm looking forward to all the civil disobedience...it'll be like a big, f'n, glorious party!

I don't think I'm ratting them out...
Sue's Country Kitchen
12 N 1st St, Cedar Springs

I went there this morning and it was good! (mom and pop greasy spoon)
The place was full of people living life and it was great to see.
They are only open until 2pm, but I'm going to make an effort to go there as much as possible.

Soon, there will be dozens and dozens of places defying our the overlords!!

Michigan is the lynchpin for the country.  Your lockdowns have been among the most heinous, so the fight for your rights should also be some of the most fierce.  Screw any cowards, end the lockdowns!

It was also packed for dinner

There are more restaurants opening here in Mid-Michigan too, they just aren't doing it as loudly as Jimmy's is.

Wyandotte Bar's Liquor License Suspended Due to COVID-19 Violations

Say what you will about Downriver, but they don't fuck around.  From the sound of this article, it seems as though one of Gretch's minions tried to shut down a Wyandotte institution and received a less than friendly welcome from the locals (including the Wyandotte PD).

Hopefully this continues.

"And how we burned in the camps later, thinking: What would things have been like if every Security operative, when he went out at night to make an arrest, had been uncertain whether he would return alive and had to say good-bye to his family? Or if, during periods of mass arrests, as for example in Leningrad, when they arrested a quarter of the entire city, people had not simply sat there in their lairs, paling with terror at every bang of the downstairs door and at every step on the staircase, but had understood they had nothing left to lose and had boldly set up in the downstairs hall an ambush of half a dozen people with axes, hammers, pokers, or whatever else was at hand? The Organs would very quickly have suffered a shortage of officers and transport and, notwithstanding all of Stalin's thirst, the cursed machine would have ground to a halt! IfifWe didn't love freedom enough. And even more  we had no awareness of the real situation. We purely and simply deserved everything that happened afterward."

There is a mix.  Many UP places had little to no infection rate for the first 8 months of this nonsense.  Then it turned on in October.

We attended the BYOB party at Huron Valley Guns last night.
The place was packed, and they even had a band.
Some folks went around recording any messages the people would care to share with the evil triumvirate (wHitler/Benson/Nessel), and there were many a middle finger raised  

Good times!

First I've heard of Huron Valley Guns. Sounds like an interesting place. Just checked out their website. Might have to take a trip up there. I'm down by Canton / Ypsilanti area.
