GRAND RAPIDS, Mich.- West Michigan can taste some creative cuisine without breaking the bank, as the fourth annual Grand Rapids Restaurant Week gets under way from August 14-24. More than 70 restaurants will be working locally grown, fresh-from-the-farm items into a three-course meal that will either cost $25 or 2-for-$25. This year, there are 15, first time restaurants participating and more ethnic restaurants than ever before!
Not only do you get a tasty meal, but $1 of every Restaurant Week sold will be donated to a student scholarship at Secchia Institute for Culinary Education at Grand Rapids Community College. The goal this year is to raise $20,000, which will help students decide to stay in the community and grow into wonderful chefs.

The quarterback situation — what else, right? — was front and center Tuesday during Central Michigan’s media day, and it appears like it’s moving at a faster pace than anticipated.
… The 6-foot-3, 220-pound junior (Cody Kater) from Montague committed to CMU in 2009 before transferring to Cincinnati to play for Butch Jones, who left the Chippewas that season. He later transferred to Grand Rapids Community College, leading the team to an 11-0 record while throwing for more than 2,200 yards and 19 touchdowns, and rushing for another 10 touchdowns, in 10 games.
