April 7

This is a picture of a building that is in downtown Grand Rapids, which is about 20 miles from our home. It's a renovated warehouse which now holds 4 floors of different attractions; restaurants, a comedy club, a dinner theatre and live music. The name of this building is The B.O.B., which stands for big old building. We ate there once and it was fun because of the choice of restaurants, but what I really enjoyed was looking at the architecture. It's a neat old building!

I just love old renovated buildings. They have so much more character than the newer ones. This one being called The BOB is just hillarious!!

It's so nice that they renovated instead of tearing down. Loving the "BOB" picture!

Mari,
I know the BOB, because my DD graduated from GVS last year! At one point she rented this neat home in the historic district across from a BB called Peaches. I appreciate you became a follower on my site and it is nice to connect with someone in my part of the world. I really enjoy your writing style it draws a reader in. ~Cathy~
