Applebees near I-96 & Okemos Road in Okemos

We’ve been good all week.  I’ve made dinner every night and we haven’t eaten out since last Saturday.  Before J left for work today, I asked if she wanted me to pick her up for dinner.  Of course, she said yes. 

I’ve learned the hard way that we can’t really head towards Michigan Avenue or East Lansing on her dinner break, but the edge of Okemos is usually ok.  She actually said she wanted to eat at a chain tonight and I said Applebees.  Yes, we could have just went to the South Lansing location, but it is Friday night and if they were busy, I wanted to make sure we had options.  There’s plenty of other restaurants near the Okemos location, so that’s where we went.

The Applebees in Okemos is just off of Okemos Road and I-96.  You would think the address would actually be Okemos Road, because it faces that street, but the address is on the side street that you turn on to which is Woodland Lake Drive. 

Like I figured, the parking lot was packed.  Still, I found a spot in the front parking lot, so I was holding out hope.  We made our way to the door where a waitress/hostess was there to greet us by opening the door….something that I’ve noticed at pretty much all the chain restaurant we’ve been to in the last year.  Once we were inside, we were stuck behind what must have been a large group.  It took three people to figure out where to put them.  The hostess that opened the door finally grabbed a couple menus and showed us to a booth in the dining room that is to the left of the bar.

Press Release – Meijer Block Parties

26 06 2009

Got this from a Meijer press release –

Tomorrow, June 27, Meijer is hosting a summertime block party at every one
of its 189 stores. At several stores, Meijer will have local athletes,
popular team mascots and local entertainers on hand to meet with the
shoppers.

The 11-2 p.m. event is free to the public and will include contests, games,
activities, entertainment and free food for the public. (See attached.)

The family-owned and -run Meijer was started 75 years ago in western
Michigan when Hendrik Meijer turned his storefront barbershop into a small
grocery store. Less than 30 years later, he debuted the country’s first
supercenter, combining grocery with general merchandise items in a 100,000
square foot store.

Every Meijer store will be having something a little different tomorrow in
the way of attractions.
