Mackinaw Brewing Company

Continuing on our Michigan vacation, we made it up to Traverse City with the in laws for a couple days of beaches, wineries, and great food.  The first stop we made was the Mackinaw Brewing Company, a local restaurant in the downtown area near the waterfront.

Traverse City is the cherry capital of the world, so I obviously needed to try the cherry lager.  It was really tasty.  I also started feeling buzzed after drinking about half of it.  Before I got pregnant, I was a lightweight, but after being off the sauce for almost a year, my tolerance is completely and totally gone.

I really miss freshwater fish when I'm in Texas, so I make it a point to eat as much of it as I can while I'm home.  We started with the smoked whitefish dip, which was served with toasts and tortilla chips.  It was really good and was delicately smokey.

Smoked Whitefish Bake - $7.99
Next came the entrees: a reuben for Colby and a whitefish sandwich for me.  I'd say that I won lunch that day, not because Colby's reuben wasn't good, but because HELLO whitefish.

Reuben - $8.99

Whitefish Sandwich - $8.59

Everyone really liked their meals, including Ramona, who decided that she wanted to nurse while we were waiting for our food.  (Don't worry, I fed her before I started drinking).

happy baby - priceless
