All Things Ypsi

Ypsilanti, Michigan, has been my stomping grounds and home base for nearly twenty years now. With all its character and characters, Ypsi’s a place I can’t resist returning to after every trip.

First and foremost I need to give a massive thanks to Chris at Provine Studios; he’s the one who custom designed the Great Wall Nut header on my site. The header turned out better than I even hoped, and you can check out just how talented Chris is here.

Thanks to Ed at Fast Eddies Music who, over copious amounts of beer with Brian, came up with thegreatwallnut addy. 🙂 The photo below is, from left to right, Fast Eddie, myself, and Super Kraiggerz in front of Eddie and Kraig’s shop.

Located in downtown Ypsi, TC’s Speakeasy is considered the “Cheers” of our fine city, and it was my hangout even before I started bartending there. Through TC’s I’ve become a fan of some of our very talented local bands. Here’s a few links–in no particular order–to some kick-arse local bands and musicians…


The Ragbirds

City Goat

Mady Kouyate

Back Forty

Jesse Passage


Paul’s Big Radio

Check out their music, as it’s well worth your while!

Thanks go out as well to Susan and Rick at Breakaway Travel on Huron Street in downtown Ypsi. Thanks for the great hook-up on my airfare, especially on such short notice!! WOOT-WOOT!!
