Mark Wahlberg’s Favorite Thing About Michigan
Mark Wahlberg comes to Michigan. A lot. He was back in Flint Township on Sunday to celebrate the opening of another (the 3rd in the state) Wahlburgers restaurant. MLive.com caught up with him and was there when somebody asked Mark what his favorite thing was about Michigan.
Would it be the beautiful (usually) summer weather? The 3,300 miles of beaches? The great deer-hunting? Salmon fishing? Da Yoopers Tourist Trap? (These may or may not be some of mine)
Nope - it would be (and this IS a good one) - the Woodward Dream Cruise. He plans on being there for the Dream Cruise in August when it just happens the new Wahlburgers will open on Woodward Ave. I would pass this off as him hyping the opening of the restaurant, if it weren't for the fact that he owns a 1971 Lansing-built (I'm assuming - tell me if I'm wrong) Olds 442 Convertible, that he wants to have shipped out to the Cruise.
Pretty cool, huh? Here's the story.
