Have you heard of Elf Cafe coming to Traverse City? The concept is cool, it's a cafe and children's play place. It's said to be “an oasis for parents looking for an engaging place to bring their children.” You might be thinking that it sounds like McDonalds, but it's not. It's all local organic food and the environment is totally different. More from The TC Ticker here...
What's Up in Entertainment
By now you know I'm a TV buff and this time of year is both exciting and frustrating. Every network has a new series and most of us don't want to waste our time in a show that might be canceled in a few weeks. So far “The Crazy Ones” on CBS, “The Blacklist” on NBC and “Agents of S.H.I.E.L.D.” on ABC all have been doing great it ratings, all in the top 20. Watch on!
“The Walking Dead” is back on the 13th but new webisodes have been posted at AMCtv.com. I caught up on these over the summer and they are pretty good. This one is a 3 part series called “The Oath,” and in all it's about 26 minutes long.
Remember when MTV had music videos? Diddy did and he's launching his own cable music channel to feature “The best of rock, the best of EDM, the best of hip hop...the future of music. We may play some country music if it's funky enough.” It cable network is called Revolt TV.
