#RunYpsi: Ypsilanti Running Co.

A few weeks ago I decided I needed to be more mindful about my physical activity (or in my case, the lack of it) and took up the friendly-paced running group at Ypsilanti Running Co. Owners Mike Nix and his wife Alison have become incredible supports and friends during the process. Recently, they hosted a pre-party for The Color Run and we had a ton of fun with selfies and a big giveaway. 

This past Sunday, they held their first fundraiser for the adoption of Frog Island at Corner Brewery. They'll be cleaning up the outer perimeter of the running track, keeping walkways clear, and renewing all the areas of the picturesque park that just needs a little love. A special IPA was brewed, a live band played, and a grand time was had by all. Check it out!


We can't recommend YRC enough for your running, fitness and retail needs. It's a wonderful family business and we feel so lucky to be a part of their movement to get people moving and healthy. Their 1 year anniversary is this September and we're looking forward to what they have in store next. 



The Elbow and Progress Room

I recently met a very energetic, young Ypsilanti business owner. Andrew Epstein is the man converting the old Elbow Room on South Washington Street into something amazing. And he gave me a sneak peek at it's current state.

The view across the street is spectacular!

Remnants of a past life are scattered throughout. Some good...

And others up for debate.

The upstairs will be live spaces. Despite neglect from previous owners and fire damage, some of the original work remains intact.

And don't get me started on the character and detail!

There's no doubt there's much work to be done, but Andrew's the guy to do it. And there's a supportive community behind him. There are two things I'm certain of: you and I will enjoy a drink at the bar here this year...

And this couch is epic.



Photos at Nolas Underground Salon

Our friends and clients Nic, his partner Dani and newest addition Amy, make up Nolas Underground Salon. They're underneath the restaurants along North U but once you go downstairs, you're in a chic gem of a space. I would say they're the best kept secret in Ann Arbor but they're booked weeks out (I had to book a month out this time to get in with a friend)! 

With just a few precious square feet, they transport you from campus experience to coifed and pampered. Nick captured some of the highlights recently and we just go them up on the website. If you're looking for a new spring style with lots of special attention, book with the pros at Nolas!
