Next time just send your money and I'll spend it here in Michigan.


But it is truly beautiful, isn't it? I have been to several states in the midwest and nothing compares to Michigan to its beauty. I know that other states have their own spots too its just I havn't seen them yet.

Even better, we let you think you won the war and traded you all Toledo for the UP.

Suckers.

rsgt513: Knot, the new joint in Omena seems to be doing very well. It is owned by a chef who has two or three other locations.

I did not dine there, but my Mom and Dad took my daughter there. They had great things to say about it.

There seems to be a dearth of good dining in Leelanau County. The only "nice" places seem to be Samuel's in Sutton's Bay and Knot.

I enjoy the touristy "Cove" in Leland, for no readily apparent reason. O'Keefe's Firehouse Pub provided ungodly terrible service to my Sister in law.

It is sad to see how awfully Northport is doing. I suppose the lack of sewage facilities really hurts the town.

Traverse City? I avoid it like the plague.

If you decide to go wine jumping. I can recommend the Rose' at Willow. I also found Bernie Rink's de Chenauc to be quite a fine quaff at Boskydel. As usual, Leelanau Cellars did a great job with their Tall Ship Chardonnay. Black Star Farms did not impress at the price point they were trying to sell at. Chateau de Leelanau's Cabernet Franc and Chardonnays were vile. I was once again favorably impressed by the creations at Raftshol, they do a fine job on the reds for the price. The whites? not so much. Shady Lane Cellars was OK, but overpriced.

NO crap, I remember that from when I was a kid. Ohio had more troopers sitting in the medians of I75 than at the local Dunkin' Donuts shop!!!!

I left the state and moved west but now I'm nearby again... Wife's family is still all there and she wanted to be closer and had a job offer that fit the bill too.

I'll be there this weekend (Grosse Pointe Woods ).

Can I carry at the city park there? Reunion is to be held at "Grosse Pointe Woods park" according to my wife's cousin. The family doesn't know I carry and several might be put off by it so I cannot really ask any of them.

Thanks in advance!
