Oh, oh. So you didn’t get a reservation on time and the places around these parts are chock full of couples who pre-planned this mid February festival of love, eh?
You can still be a hero.
And Newaygo Brewing Co. is here to help.
They are extending their V-Day special through Sunday (or as long as the victuals in question last) with a Valentine's Day Dinner for Two including 2 drinks, an appetizer, one of their outstanding 3 topping pizzas and one of three homemade desserts.
This weekend? Dam to Dam my friend.
The Croton based, Leinie sponsored angler extravaganza kicks off Saturday at sunrise and runs until 3:30 pm or thereabouts.
This is a serious fun fest and you can get a jump start with the nearly world famous fish fry at the Croton American Legion Post Friday night starting at 5pm. As a bonus Outlaw Express will be on hand to provide the jams starting at 7pm.
On Saturday $5 gets an adult into the ice fishing tourney (kids with an adult are free) and this being a free fishing weekend in our fine state no license is required for those of you who have not even augered a hole, nor set into place a tip-up as yet this season.
Maybe more of a golfer than fisherperson?
There are scads of avid golfers out their who pride themselves on playing at least once a month throughout a bipeninsular year taking to the links when winter sends out one of those all too rare reprieves and snowmelt makes it possible, if not practical, to sneak in a quick nine..
Well here’s your shot at filling up February. There will be an ice golf tournament starting at 10 am. Ok, maybe it’s ice golf but it’s 18 holes and no one could argue that it is any less considered golf than being on frozen course at a traditional site so….
Dam to Dam is also a very cool event (pun unintended because we’re all a little touchy about such references lately) because the TrueMentors program at TrueNorth benefits from the proceeds and it is the kind of youth mentoring program that is absolutely vital to our community and a long term intervention that often makes an immeasurable positive impact on the life of a young person.
Details on the D to D fun can be found on their fb page or by contacting the Croton Trading Post where Michelle can provide info and enter you in the tourneys.
Of course it’s winter and we’ve just been through a meteorological mauling the past couple of weeks, right? Well, most of us live here because when it comes to this sometimes seemingly endless season we know how to thrive during times when others might merely survive. When weather puts a beating on us and drives us inside for a time there’s only one way to cope.
We throw a party.
Revel on, fellow bipeninsularians, revel on.
