Labor Day weekend? What? No way. The final of the Big Three of Summer has descended upon us and we all know come Tuesday we won’t be able to go anywhere without catching a whiff of Pumpkin Spice. Last week LSC Lil and I were at Northern Trails for a bite and they had Octoberfest on tap. In August!
Well, we’re not going to mourn summer while there’s still a smidge of the season remaining so Revel On fellow Near Northians.
And by the way, Smugglers at North Shore is gearing up for their September 20th opening when lakeside dining returns to Hess after a 5 year sabbatical.
And people are pumped.
Now, back to this weeks picks
One of our sponsors, CBD Store of Michigan in downtown Fremont is having a Blue Moon Event to commemorate the full bodied lunar vision arriving Thursday.. The store has put on a variety of doings over the years and this one sounds like something way worth checking out. This Thursday’s full moon is expected to be one of the biggest and brightest of the year thus Co-owner Rod Glupker felt a celebration was in order. From 3-6pm stop in and take part in Have A Free Beer With Rod featuring (of course) Blue Moon beer, though he assures me there will be other brands to choose from.
Then from 7-9 there will be a Cacao Ceremony with Sadie. We’re not sure what this all involves other than drinking ceremonial Cacao in a group setting in hopes of gaining some insight and introspection while connecting with others. At least that’s what it said when we did our internet research.
And if you’re looking to resupply your CBD products Rod says it’s the store’s biggest sale and only happens once in a …you got it… blue moon. .
We’re stopping by for the free beer because Rod is truly one of those guys one would enjoy having a beer with.
The annual Logging Fest is due to arrive in downtown Newaygo this weekend for three days of celebration and if you haven’t hit a Pow-wow yet this year head to the Oceana Fairgrounds where Saturday and Sunday the 30th Annual “Honoring Our Elders” Hart Pow-Wow will see traditional Drumming, Singing, Dancing, Food & Arts and Crafts.
And This Week’s Music
On Wednesday Kev & Racquel make a return to the Northern Trails deck from 6-9pm.
Riverstop Cafe’s Thursday night featured performer is Jack Leave who is well known and well liked around these parts. Music from 6-9pm.
Friday is always Open Mike night at Flying Bear Books & Creperie 6-9pm. The music brings you in, the crepes bring you back.
We haven't heard who’s playing Saturday at the Driftwood but Sunday 3-7pm brings NXT to the best deck dining view in the Near North and possibly the Universe.
There it is. If you know of something going on and want folks to know about it, send us the skinny and we’ll give it a shout.
