Eateries to be; Honoring the Amish; Shed them pills; The Dragon starts to prowl.
Hey, there has been some genuine action at the site where a fire ended the run of Smuggler’s Cove. The photo shows the relative leveling of the building that in pre SC years was the home of the North Shore (or North Sho e if you arrived by water).
What will rise in its place? Still a bit of the unknown surrounding this new venture, though the rumor mill has been tossing the word ‘brewery’ around a bit.
There’s just something enticing about a dining establishment that can be accessed by land or by sea
And speaking of new eateries we anxiously await the opening of a new epicurean incarnation in the building that housed the former River Valley Pizza a place that, incidentally, garnished a good share of votes (albeit posthumously) in our pizza survey a few months back. The pasties were pretty righteous as well and Dave was always an interesting guy to chat it up with, but we’re a little excited at the prospect of diving into some of the edibles that will be coming out of the kitchen of La Paloma.
Since the Rio Cafe ended it’s fabulous run in Croton there’s been a drought at N3 World Headquarters & Dormant Monarch Ministry when it comes to having that favorite place for Mexican food. For us the Rio was the once-a-week-I-need-to-go-there kind of spot so we’re anxious to see if that long-standing gap can be filled by the folks at La Paloma.
We’ll let you know.
As for non food related items…
At the county commission meeting recognition was given to the North Newaygo Amish Church who turned out big time to lend a hand...well, several hands… when flooding tore through parts of our county leaving wreck and ruin in its wet wake.The folks from the NNAC contributed tools, supplies, equipment and over 65 volunteers who put in over 2100 hours to the community in reconstruction activities. The four who attended to accept the accolades received a standing ovation from the gathering.
A well deserved ovation.
The Amish families who reside in this area are an integral part of our community as evidenced by their rapid response to the distress brought about by our spring monsoon and their willingness to help their neighbors.
Nicely done NNAC.
NC Parks Director Nick Smith (who adores and absolutely lives for winter even though otherwise he seems as normal as anyone) posted this photo on social media of the construction being done on the much anticipated biking hiking phenomena known as the Michigan Dragon Trail.
As the pix show the project has gotten some serious traction.
From Nick:Trail Builders have completed much of the trail work in and near Brower Park and Newaygo State Park. Check out this puncheon (photo below) they just installed using rough-sawn cedar. We can’t wait for these sections to open in the summer of 2020!
