Dusty’s Cellar continues to serve Okemos after 31 years

 

Small and locally owned businesses are rare and often hard to find, but in the heart of Okemos stands Dusty’s Cellar: a wine bar, tap room, bakery, and cellar all in one. For over 37 years Dusty Cellar has been providing delicious baked goods, fine wine, and fresh hand carved meat for the Meridian and Okemos area. “In 1980 my dad, Dusty, founded this establishment which started off as a bakery in Meridian Mall and then in 1981 we moved from the all into this current location and we’ve been here since”. said Matt Rhodes, the current owner. The establishment started off with a bakery, specialty food, gourmet wine and cookware, which eventually got phased out and got turned into the first restaurant and 12 years later a second restaurant was added to the same location.

The smell of a bonfire fills the air while playful screams echo in the distance. About 15 parents surround the fire pit watching their kids run up a giant hill, and sled down the same hill lit by the moon and some help from overhead lights. Despite the below-freezing temperatures, the biannual Moonlight Sledding event in Okemos was under way recently. Although, for Recreational Specialist Mike Devlin, the turnout wasn’t quite as large as it usually is. “This is a huge family event,” Devlin said.

Ele’s Place is coming to Holt Junior High School to offer a support group for grieving children, a director from Ele’s Place said March 22. Director of Marketing and Community Outreach Molly Day said the open-ended support group offers hour-long sessions to help children and teenagers deal with the loss of a loved one. Ele’s Place also offers support groups for parents and guardians at its healing centers located in Ann Arbor, Grand Rapids and Lansing. “The parents are obviously dealing with their own grief, so this way they are getting support for themselves as well as support for their children,” she said. Ele’s Place is bringing an eight-week program to Holt Junior High School, starting on April 9.

Family Matters at Roma Bakery

Lansing’s Roma Bakery is a constantly buzzing place on Fat Tuesday, but it’s not the business impact that means the most to Mena and Sostine Castriciano, the couple that runs the bakery. The impact of family and friends is what means the most to them. Roma needs extra help on hectic days like Fat Tuesday, and that’s where the impact is felt. As the customers flock to Roma to get their paczki fill before Lenten season begins, family and friends flock to Roma to help bake them. “Last night we probably had 25 family and friends here packaging, and coating, and filling, and, you know, frying and baking the paczki,” said John Dann, who is a nephew of Mena and Sostine that was there to help out. Dann typically works as an insurance agent in Okemos.
