RIP, Flats Grille

The best restaurant in East Lansing, Michigan and one of my all-time favorites has closed. Flats Grille was one of the few places on Grand River that had survived from my freshman year through....well, now - too many years later. Apparently the owner failed to pay some back taxes - 8 thousand or something. I'm not for tax evasion or anything, but I would have gladly donated 10 bucks to keep it going. I'm sure at least 800 other people would have too. Flats was what a college town food place should be - quirky, well-priced, great food, and unpretentious. And they had the most amazing orangeade in the world. With God as my witness, I will spend the rest of my life trying to make orangeade that tastes like Flats.
