Manitou Passage Golf Club – A Northern Michigan Adventure
By Jim Barnes It may seem unthinkable, even sacrilegious, to make any changes to a course designed by the great Arnold Palmer.

Spent a night tied up right where that boat is. Had dinner and cocktails at the Cove. Underway in the morning past the Manitou islands and on to Arcadia.

Awesome pic 💞 can't wait for July to be up in that area. Love Fishtown.

Love ❤️ such a great place 🌼🌞

I remember back around 2008-2010 a wall of thick fog rolled all the way up pearl street past the lodge into the country club.

Reminds me of Cannery Row

Absolutely Beautiful!!!

Thanks, TCFF!

Riotous, endearing, and ridiculously entertaining, when comedy writer Steve Young stumbles upon the hilarious, hidden world of entertainment know as industrial musicals (Broadway style shows produced for America's corporate giants like Ford and GE) he finds not only a new obsession, but an unexpected connection to his fellow man. Told with warmth, charm, and unabashed nostalgia, Young's love for this slice of Americana cheese is infectious and life-affirming. It's a film that works its delightful magic so thoroughly you're sure to be humming tunes about bathroom fixtures ("The Bathrooms are Coming!").🎵🎶 ... See MoreSee Less

Hey everybody👋 We’re gonna be sharing some TCFF selections that are readily available on streaming services for you to revisit or discover while you are flattening the curve.

Suttons Bay Art Festival – August 3 – 4, 2019

Suttons Bay Art Festival

This annual art fair takes place at the beautiful Suttons Bay Marina Park on the first weekend of August (August 3 & 4th, 2019, Sat. 10am – 6pm, Sun. 10am – 5pm). One hundred artists along with community groups, a community library book sale, food vendors and a children’s area make this the perfect place to spend an art-filled weekend at the beach. Join us on Sunday morning for a pancake breakfast in the park (free to exhibiting artists). This is the second year Blackbird Arts has hosted the breakfast.

A committee of volunteers oversees the selection of visiting artists and the distribution of funds generated by the event. Thousands of dollars have been contributed to local arts-related education projects. These include music and dance performances, artist in residence programs and scholarships for local art students.

Come to Suttons Bay in August, participate – as an artist, as a shopper or as a volunteer. Join in the fun!
