Here's what's going on in town today.

Happy Friday!

If you're like me and you're trying to diet before summer comes, don't read the following. If you aren't watching what you eat, today is National Blueberry Pie Day. If you're wanting to celebrate, there are two places in Lansing that are sure to please: Grand Traverse Pie Company, or the new Sweetilicious in Old Town.

On this day: Today in 1937, the first commercial flight to fly across the pacific ocean happened today and was operated by Pan Am. Here's more on the historic flight.
