4th Tuesday at Michigrain Distillery!

Networking at MichiGrain Distillery!
 
Please join us from 5:30/6-8 p.m. on Tuesday, Feb. 26 for our Fourth Tuesday Networking Event at MichiGrain Distillery - right in the heart of downtown Lansing's Stadium District. Come and enjoy free apps courtesy of MichiGrain and craft cocktails with premium spirits made in-house while relaxing and networking in MichiGrain's cocktail lounge - a cozy atmosphere with TVs and couches in front of the fireplace, and a variety of fun games to play while enjoying your drinks with friends.
 
MichiGrain is a Distiller's Distillery. By partnering with local farmers in and around the community to supply the state-of-the-art facility with a perpetual bounty of premium grain, MichiGrain is completely redefining what neutral grain spirits can provide to the increased demands of the rapidly growing craft spirits industry. Not only do they provide bulk spirits to other distilleries, they also produce their own made in house spirits with Corn Vodka, Potato Vodka, Neutral Spirits, Gin, Blended Whiskey and Blended Bourbon. Take a look at their new small shareable plates menu for some delicious eats, too! Can't make it to the cocktail lounge? Check out their website to see where you can purchase MichiGrain products. In addition to the cocktail lounge, the second floor of MichiGrain offers an event space for rent, complete with its own bar, that is perfect for hosting small parties, meetings or office retreats. Guests can cater in their choice of food to enjoy with the delicious spirits.

Our Mission

The Grand River Connection seeks to develop a stronger network to support Lansing and East Lansing’s young and vital workforce. We exist to bring together young professionals in our community who are in their 20s and 30s. Our diverse, non-partisan group provides fun, social, and professional connections that encourage economic growth and community involvement where we live, work, and play.

Our History 

The Grand River Connection was founded in Spring 2005 to fill a gap in the community. Greater (East) Lansing is a great place for college students and a great place to raise a family, but for those in between there was no viable social network. With a goal of filling that gap in mind, the GRC was born. 

Young professionals in their 20s and 30s in the Greater Lansing area are welcome to join the group, and joining is very simple. There are NO membership fees, and most of our events are FREE! Simply sign up for our monthly newsletter by clicking the big button at the top right of this website.
