I was born in Flint in 1959 at St. Joseph hospital. I grew up in the Flint area like many of you. My Dad worked for Chevrolet, I saw first-run movies at the Capitol Theatre, concerts at the "old" IMA, shopped for groceries at Hamady Brothers, clothes at Smith-Bridgeman and drank beer before I was old enough at the Mikatam. Growing up in and around Flint was a unique yet shared experience. When asked to write my Top 5 list of Little Known/Unusual facts about Flint I quite frankly didn't know where to start. Flint is one quirky/unusual city. That's not a bad thing. So here we go with a handful of things you might not know or may have forgotten about Flint, Michigan.
