Continue to embrace the day as a holiday shopping tradition, besides wonderful things are discovered in small local businesses. Small Business Saturday November 28 th , 2015 Small Business Saturday is a day to support small and local businesses. American Express, the founder of Small Business Saturday, encouraged small business owners to take charge of the day, helping them promote their businesses with free personalized ads, which appeared millions of times across the web.

Bite Into Deliciousness

Food Recommendation Friday Baker Street Grill 1716 Baker Street Wisconsin Rapids, WI Baker Street Grill is absolutely breath taking. Walking inside you’ll first notice their magnificent pumpkin that reads “Welcome Friends”. Glancing around the room you’ll noticed all the decorations covering the walls. In the bar there are signs that will speak to your inner Wisconsinite and in the dinning room there are beautiful photographs. Local artists created each photograph and many of them are for sale. I found their stop light to be the coolest decoration; it reads “Bars Open, Last Call, Bars Closed.” Just the interior will sweep you off your feet. Now their food is something to be excited about. With lunch and dinner menus that satisfy, you simply can’t go wrong. Start out your meal with one of their fresh salads. Try the classic Caesar salad or switch things up with a taco salad. Not big on salads? No worries! Bakers Street Grill has fantastic appetizers. T
