We’ll be doing these 5 bullets every Friday with 5 semi-random things that we think you should know before the weekend.

The topics and categories can change each week, and will take the form of whatever we feel like sharing.

And before anyone calls us out on it, we admit the “5 Bullet Friday” concept is stolen from Tim Ferriss. Those that know us well already know that one of our Team members (Mark Krier) is a huge fan and loyal listener/reader of Tim Ferriss, so go figure. We’re pretty sure Tim won’t mind.

  • First: Something to do in downtown Grand Rapids tonight last minute:

Impractical Jokers in Grand Rapids

Catch a show at the Devos Performance Hall of “Impractical Jokers”.

I was confused when I first saw this too. I knew the name “impractical jokers” from a sketch show on TruTV that’s about, well, impractical jokers. I guess they do a live comedy show as well. It got 4.5 / 5 stars from over 1,000 reviews on Tickemaster, so I’m guessing it’s funny.

Tickets are still available for the 7pm and 10pm shows:  http://www.ticketmaster.com/Impractical-Jokers-tickets/artist/1754209.

  • Second: The Best House we saw this Week:

What an awesome house in Ottawa Hills. (Click a picture for more info)

Looks straight out of an episode of HGTV — Chip and Joanna would be proud.

  • Third: What to do Tomorrow

Odd Side Funk Fest

Odd Side Funk Fest in Grand Haven; 3pm – 11pm; Click on the picture for more details.

I’ll personally be in Grand Haven for this one. Feel free to join me for an afternoon and evening of funky beer, people and music!

Local food trucks will be ther3 as well as a 150 headset silent disco featuring three DJ’S.

There will be four different bands playing throughout the event, headlined by the Mainstays (featuring members of the band Funktion).

  • Fourth: The Best Thing I ate all Week

Donkey Taqueria

A hotly debated topic around Grand Rapids, who has the best taco? My top 3 get shuffled around periodically, but Donkey-Taqueria is always up there.

Tacos Al Pastor and Tacos De Barbacoa De Borrego are my favorite.

Donkey is not a well-kept secret, so I shouldn’t need to tell you where they are at, but just in case here’s the address: 665 Wealthy St SE Grand Rapids, MI 49503

  • Fifth: If I Won the Lottery, What West Michigan Home Would I Buy?

I’d pony up $10M and buy this 9 bedroom home located at 20 Peppers Trail, in MONTAGUE, Michigan

UNBELIEVABLE. Words can’t describe it, so I’m not even going to try. Click on one of the pictures to get the full perspective.

That does it for this week. Leave a comment if you enjoyed, or if you have suggestions for topics next week.
