We're past the holidays and a couple of weeks away from Winterfest, so get out of the house and try something different this weekend, Jan. 3-5.

(1) First Friday Gallery Walk — 6-8 p.m. Friday at C2C Gallery, 104 Washington Ave. in downtown Grand Haven. The featured artist is photographer Johnny Quirin, whose exhibit focuses on the Imperial Valley in the Sonoran Desert of California.

(2) Coffee with the Birds — 10 a.m. Saturday at Hemlock Crossings, 8115 West Olive Road, West Olive. Spend the morning with a hot beverage, baked good and fellow birders to observe the feeders. Bring your favorite mug.

(3) Making Nature Calls — 2 p.m. Sunday, also at Hemlock Crossings' Nature Education Center. This is part of the Ottawa County Parks' Sunday Family Hour series. It's free. Registration is not required, but is appreciated. Call 616-786-4847.

(4) USS Silversides — It's open 10 a.m. to 5:30 p.m. Friday and Saturday, and 10 a.m. to 4 p.m. Sunday. Winter admission is $5 for the museum and $10 for the combination ticket to see the submarine, museum and retired Coast Guard cutter McLane. At the museum, 1346 Bluff St. in Muskegon, is the USS Flier exhibit, featuring Grand Haven native Al Jacobson.

(5) Open Play Scrabble — 10 a.m. to 2 p.m. Saturday at Schuler Books & Music, 2660 28th St. SE, Grand Rapids. If you're into a little different and a little distance, the Scrabble Club meets in the community area at the rear of the store. All ages and skill levels are welcome. 

You could also try out the Grand Haven Ski Bowl or some of the Grand Rapids-area hills for skiing, snowboarding or tubing. If you have cross-country ski gear, hit a new trail this weekend!

I logged onto the "5 things to do this weekend" and half of the page was filled with video of women's boobs in very skimpy tops. It ran over and over again. I am an adult and can make decisions about what I watch. I think it irresponsible to allow these ads where a child, teen, young adult to see. These spots are allowed by the Grand Haven Tribune's website administrator. Really--think about what you are allowing.

see my post below...if you look in the top right corner of the ad, and there is a blue arrow, that is a company called AdChoices which shows you ads based on common sites your computer has searched...mine was full of Amazon and Virgin mobile ads...2 sites I visit regularly

The ads on my computer are for sweatshirts and calenders, both things I have been looking at on the internet. I think someone has been visiting the kinds of sites your computer is showing, Maggi C.
