1. Tom Brady has done it again. The Tampa Bay Buccaneers are the Super Bowl champs!

The Tampa Bay Buccaneers Quarterback threw two touchdowns to his buddy, Rob Gronkowski, and another to Antonia Brown as the Bucs knocked off Patrick Mahomes and the Kansas City Chiefs 31-9 in Super Bowl 55.

This is Brady's 7th Super Bowl title and the Buccaneer's first title in 18 years.

No surprise, Brady was also named the game's MVP, but Tampa Bay's defense was the real MVP picking off Mahomes twice and keeping their offense out of the end zone all night long.

2. The Eastown Cereal Cafe is opened for business!

18-year-old Taylor Kyle celebrated the grand opening of her business in Grand Rapids over the weekend.

She says growing up, she and her family loved cereal, which became the inspiration for the cafe. It offers cereal, along with shakes and waffles.

The cafe is on Wealthy and is open for indoor dining. It also has a pick-up window for those who don't want to go inside.

3. John Ball Zoo is offering a virtual date night experience on Valentine's Day.

The zoo says couples can learn how "different animals date, mate, and procreate" and get a "sneak peek into the surprising world of animal breeding" at the zoo and in the wild.

The virtual experience is live and will last about 45-60 minutes on February 14 at 8:30 p.m.

John Ball Zoo says the content is intended for adults only. Cost is $10 for members and $15 for non-members.

4. Michigan Free Fishing Weekend is returning for the winter.

All fishing license fees will be waived on Saturday and Sunday.

On top of that, a Michigan Recreation Passport will not be required for entry into Michigan State Parks and boating access sites during the weekend.

It's open to both residents and out-of-state visitors on both inland lakes and great lakes for all species of fish.

The DNR says to stay safe, avoid areas of snow that are dark, never fish alone, and tell someone where you're going as well as when you plan to return.

5. Seattle's great wheel isn't just giving customers a great view, it's now offering dinner with a great view.

Customers can now enjoy a meal on the gigantic Ferris wheel. The four-course meal from a nearby fisherman's restaurant costs $152.50 per person.

Each gondola on the wheel can accommodate a party of four.
