Here is hoping that everyone had a fun and safe Independence Day weekend. This coming weekend won’t be quite as long for most, but there are still plenty of things going on to keep the public entertained.

Live Music with The Mel V Collective will be happening on the patio of the Lansing Shuffle on Friday, July 7 from 8 to 11 p.m. at 325 Riverfront Drive, the former site of the Lansing City Market.

The Lansing Shuffle is a relatively new part of Lansing, opening for the first time in January of this year. It has quickly become a staple and has several different establishments to offer in one convenient place, just a couple of blocks from LCC’s main campus.

Matthew Zacklan is the director of operations of The Lansing Shuffle He will kindly tell anyone just how much is offered.

“We have five different restaurants,” Zacklan said. “Kin Thai, Yeti Kitchen, Irie BBQ, Osteria Vegana and Browndog Burger & Shakes. … We have live entertainment on the patio every weekend, and Mel V is just an overall great band.

“It’s different artists and musicians that perform. If you go on their Facebook (page), you can find out a little bit more about who they are. We have a full-service bar as well, with a lot of different craft cocktails and beers.”

Ticket prices for the game between the Lugnuts and the Lake County Captains range anywhere from $5 to $44 for a seat for the game and the fireworks. The game starts at 7:05 p.m.; fireworks will follow.

Pave the Way Documentary Premiere will be happening at the Lansing Public Media Center, located at 2500 S. Washington Ave. on Sunday, July 9 from 5:30 to 7 p.m.

This documentary, “They Even Took the Dirt,” is a one-hour compilation of more than 75 oral histories and survivor accounts of a destruction of an African American community in the ‘60s.

The event is free but there is limited seating, so hosts have asked that any guests who plan on attending RSVP via the website.
