1. The festivities might be canceled, but the delicious Polish food will go on. For the first time since it started in 1973, Pulaski Days in Grand Rapids will not take place this year.

Adjustments have been made due to COVID-19. But the good news is many halls are going to be offering take out anything between October 2-4.

Just go to PulaskiDays.org to find the full menu from each hall. Also, there's a button if you'd like to make a donation.

2. If you need something to get you excited about this morning, today is National Drink Beer Day.

It's one of the world's most popular adult beverages, and there are tons of varieties you can enjoy, especially brews made in Michigan.

So gather with loved ones, and raise a glass of your favorite beer.

3. Another place for great deals! Ollie's Bargain Outlet is opening a Kalamazoo location on Wednesday at 9 a.m.

It's located near Lee's chicken, inside what used to be a Big Lots store on Westnedge Ave.

The chain is one of the largest retailers of excess inventory and discounted product, calling itself the home of the "good stuff cheap."

With its opening, Ollie's brings around 50-60 new jobs.

4. If this kitten seems familiar, you might be a fan of "The Mandalorian."

Rescuers who saved her from a California wildfire say she looks a lot like Baby Yoda. The little cutie is two or three weeks old.

Firefighters found her in the middle of the road near the north complex fire.

Her rescuers brought her to an animal shelter that named her Baby Yoda to match her appearance.

An animal welfare group says it won't put up the kitten for adoptions until her potential owners have time to claim her.
