Do you have that #FridayFeeling? Here at ManoByte, we recognize the need to relax, refuel, and recharge every weekend with our newest blog series, "What's Going on in West Michigan?" Join us every Friday, right here, as we explore what's up in the Greater Grand Rapids area. This weekend carve out some time for more than just eating turkey and have some fun on the town.

What Movies are Out?

If you're a Disney buff, then you probably already know that the newest film featuring Princess Moana is coming to theaters in time for this long holiday weekend! This action-packed adventure is good for the kiddos and got excellent ratings from Rotten Tomatoes. If you're hoping to see a movie that's less packed with kids, why not attend the $5 movie this Sunday? Arrival is a sci-fi thriller that features aliens, fighting for humanity, and mystery. If you see anything else good in theaters this weekend, make sure to comment below and let us know! 

Black Friday Shopping

Standing in line to get the best deals is on many people's radar this weekend, but you don't have to go to extremes to save money. If you haven't been thinking about Black Friday or shopping at all this this weekend, there's still time to plan your list before the rush since many sales continue all weekend. Looking for something more unique than the big box stores? Avoid the mall and go to LaFontsee Galleries' Black Friday Indoor Tent Sale. On Friday the 25th-26th you could score great prices on jewelry, watches, home decor, and more. If you're one of those folks whose arm needs a bit of twisting to go shopping, attend the Shop for a Cause Craft and Vendor Show, where each exhibitor will donate a portion of their proceeds to the Bethany Christian Services Foster Care Fund.

Griffins Hockey

If you're more of a sports person, you're in luck! There's a home Griffin's game this Saturday at 7 PM, see the whole season and get tickets here. Besides an exciting game, there will also be $2 beer and hotdogs, and an open skate after the match. Go Griffins! Today there's also a basketball game at the Delta Plex, the Grand Rapids Drive VS the Austin Spurs -- get more details here


Beer Facility Tours 

Why not try something a little different? Did you know many breweries around West Michigan offer brewery tours on the weekends? If you're a fan of craft beer and want a better look at how your favorite places, like Vivant and GRBC, make your favorite beers then this event is for you! At 12:30 PM on Saturdays and 2 PM on Sundays, you can attend a tour and a tasting at Founders. Before you go to any of these tours, make sure you read our blog to discover what craft beer has to do with Inbound Marketing!

What else are you up to this weekend? Comment below and let us know! It's alright if your answer is getting some much-deserved rest on the couch.
