Hazel Mae King

Hazel Mae King (aka Tiffany Lentz) has returned to the Mitten State after being absent for just under 8 years to live in New York, Los Angeles and Europe. Although she loves to see different parts of the world, Grand Rapids is more home to her than anywhere else. Diving back into the culture here, she has gone head first into the liking of beer, bicycling, working out, drawing and going to see live music.

She may need an extra hug or hello during the winter time because it is something she isn’t particularly fond of…yet.

odd side funk fest

A long overdue festival for Odd Side Ales finally popped its cherry on Saturday. OSA has been exploring the idea of a festival for quite a while now. They always liked the idea of having an outdoor anniversary festival, but since their anniversary falls on St. Patrick’s Day, the weather never seemed like something they […]
