The Antiquarian Book & Paper Show is the largest book and paper show in the Midwest, averaging over 70 exhibitors and one million old, rare, and collectible book and paper items for sale. 

                                                     3. MSU BUTTERFLY HOUSE 

 There's plenty of fluttering going on at Michigan State University's Butterfly House.
Anywhere from 200 to 400 of them can be spotted during a visit, said Dan Bulkowski, manager of MSU's teaching greenhouses and horticulture gardens. Monarchs, buckeyes, Julias and southern whites are on display now.
No visitor count is kept for the Butterfly House, but Bulkowski said there was a large crowd on Thursday afternoon.
"There's probably 100 people in there right now," he said. "Quite a few people come through here."
The Horticulture Gardens, where the Butterfly House is located, draw about 10,000 school children a year, Bulkowski said.
The Butterfly House traditionally is opened to the public in March and April to accommodate school field trips. Its last day this year is April 30. Public visiting hours are 2 p.m. to 4 p.m. Mondays-Fridays, 10 a.m. to 4 p.m. Saturdays and Sundays.
It's located at A288 Plant & Soil Science Building, toward the south end of Bogue Street.

4.  THE BEER GROTTO has opened in Lansing just a short block from Riverwalk Theatre.  Downtown Lansing has a new place for craft beer.
The Beer Grotto officially opened  Saturday in Lansing's Stadium District -- located at 500 E Michigan Ave., across from the Lansing Lugnut's Cooley Law School Stadium.
With 48 beers on tap, it will have one of the largest brew selections in Lansing. The bar also serves wine. A great before show or after show hangout.


The Habibi Dancers are holding two days of workshops and a spectacular concert this weekend.  April 18 & 19 at the Hannah Center, 819 Abbott Road.  There's so much going that I'm going to send you to their website for details
