ELi is pleased to announce that Crunchy’s, one of East Lansing’s best-known pub-style restaurants, has generously agreed to become a corporate sponsor of ELi’s weekly newsletter. The commitment from Crunchy’s provides for the cost of staff production of our emailed newsletter, a part of the nonprofit public news service ELi provides free of charge to everyone in the community.

Crunchy’s will need little introduction for most residents of East Lansing, especially those who enjoy craft beers and burgers. But those who haven’t yet discovered this home-town institution can read this report provided by ELi’s Abigail Heath back in 2015 when Crunchy’s was named by Big Ten Network East Lansing’s best game-day restaurant, or this longer report from last year from ELi’s Jessy Gregg.

Michael Krueger, owner and General Manager of Crunchy’s, says he’s happy to support ELi because “it is one of the best news publications in the area. I believe ELi to be an important asset to the East Lansing community as they have many citizens on the ground helping to report all kinds of things from local government affairs to special entertainment in the area.”

Travis Stoliker, ELi’s Board Treasurer and co-owner of Saddleback BBQ, is “thrilled about Mike joining me in supporting ELi’s mission of nonpartisan, nonprofit public service news for East Lansing.” Says Stoliker, “Crunchy’s is one of the most beloved restaurants and bars in the East Lansing area. When my friends that attended MSU return for football games, we always make a trip to Crunchy’s. It always brings back good memories.”

ELi’s Managing Editor Ann Nichols says it would be hard to think of a better fit than Crunchy’s as a corporate sponsor of ELi’s weekly newsletter: “Crunchy’s is a key part of the fabric of East Lansing—and I’m not just saying that because I live two blocks away, and Captain Carnivore and I enjoy going there regularly for comfort food.”

“With LightSpeed sponsoring our homepage, and Crunchy’s sponsoring our weekly newsletter,” Nichols added, “people can see we are serious about our devotion to hyperlocal news and community service.”

The weekly newsletter goes out to subscribed emails on Friday afternoons, and you can sign up for free. It’s a great way to make sure you don’t miss local news and upcoming events.
