If it’s Friday it must mean food right?
Of course every day means food but we at N3 World Headquarters and Al Fresco Dining Deck find Fridays to be one of those days when all avenues to ingestible indulgence are open. From the ever growing cornucopia of eateries we enjoy in our parts ( head to our Nibbler section) to the abundance of edible options beginning to emerge from the local land, options abound.
The Vanderlaans the fairly new proprietors of Gene’s Market are having a Rib Fest tonight (Friday) at their Grant location. Grab a full rack of ribs and add a meal deal with some slaw and potato salad and head home happy.
The Dogwood Summer Youth Theater is presenting “A Midsummer Night’s Dream” Friday and Saturday at 7:30pm.
Over 30 local youth have been working hard to make this a compelling theater experience and for those who love bargains? Admission is free. Being thrifty however, allows one the resources to make donations and said donations will be most welcomed at the door if one is so inclined.
The Farmer’s Markets are expanding with more choices hitting the tables each week. Friday the Newaygo market begins at noon in Brooks Park. There’s also to be a little music...
...on stage from 4-7pm so bring down a lawn chair, kick back, and take in some tunes. And while you’re wandering about in downtown Newaygo check out The Unprecedented Mural Exhibit at Studio 37 featuring the works of local artists. The exhibit opening is tonight (Friday) beginning at 6pm.
If you miss scoring your fruits and veggies Friday you can hit the Fremont Farm Market on Saturday beginning in the morning and if you’ve somehow let the entire weekend slip away the Fremont Market is also open on Tuesday afternoons. If unacquainted it is located just off the main drag in the aptly named Marketplace Pavilion.
It’s Corn Time! We mentioned the impending arrival last week and here it is folks. N3 WH staff stumbled onto opening day at the Kokx farm on Thursday…(well perhaps driving by each day for the better part of a week is more like stalking than stumbling onto but, anyway)…. and picked up some early season beauties. Being generous we distributed a few then came home to indulge in the favorite of all summer meals, sliced tomatoes and cukes, a little bread and cheese and 6 ears of corn drenched in butter with a smidge of salt.
And yes it was a solo meal.
Saturday is an opportunity to support the great things being done by those quadruped caretakers at Bellwether Harbor while sending your pooch home looking good.
From 10am-1pm during their Dog Wash you can get Fido bathed and beautified just in time to go home and find something nasty to roll in if they are like most canines I’ve roomed with. Nevertheless it's a cool event for a very good cause and while there get some information on the work they do at BH. It is impressive to say the least.
Much more to do and see during what looks to be one of those fabulous late July weekends with balmy nights and excruciatingly pleasant days. Thus, as we reiterate frequently in these pages….Get Outside.Our area possess an abundance of natural wonders so whether embarking on a kayak voyage, q’ing up some vittles on the grill or engaged in some deep hammock inspired meditation take some significant time to embrace the kindest of all seasons in this little patch of paradise.
