Grand Haven’s Walk The Beat: One Afternoon, 40 Venues, 80 Bands, 200 Musicians

By Andy Frisinger and John Sinkevics | Local Spins

RIP Robin Williams: A Look Back at Late Actor’s Best Work [Video]

Robin Williams' death is shocking and heartbreaking and touches us in a way usually reserved for close friends. Maybe that's because we're of a generation that grew up on Robin Williams.

As director Garry Marshall, who first cast Williams in 'Happy Days' and later 'Mork and Mindy,' said today, "He could make everybody happy but himself."

He made everyone happy and in that spirit, we'd like to celebrate his work, and we asked a few of our writers to look back at their favorite moments of his career.
