What’s Happening in Northern Michigan: 231 Locals Night

With spring right around the corner, you might be looking to get out of the house. But it’s not always easy to find new things to do.

Luckily, Courtney Sheffer has a few ideas for some fun activities in this week’s What’s Happening in Northern Michigan.
Shanty Creek

Slush Cup at Shanty Creek Resort 

Help say farewell to winter this Saturday with Shanty Creek Resort’s annual “Slush Cup.” This has been one of Michigan’s most popular winter events for over 40 years, and you can check it out from 9am until 4pm this weekend, as skiers and snowboarders attempt to skim across an icy 60-foot-long pond. You’ll witness the thrill of victory, the agony of defeat, and fun times for everyone involved.

231 Locals Night at Iron Fish Distillery Iron Fish

For a fun, low-key evening out, check out Iron Fish Distillery’s “231 Locals Night” at their Thompsonville location every Thursday this month. Locals get treated to a discount of $2.31 off any cocktails, and you’ll find fun touches like board games to play, and outdoor heated tents to enjoy as you kick back for the evening. Iron Fish Distillery takes great pride in their spirits, distilling vodka, gin, run, and whiskey from grains farmed right on their own fields.

Canfield House BbMurder Mystery Weekend 

If you’re looking for a unique weekend getaway, the Canfield House Bed and Breakfast in Onekema is hosting their annual Murder Mystery Weekend from March 18-20. Enjoy hors d’oeuvres on Friday night, and on Saturday you’ll be immersed in a 1920s-era “whodunnit,” with each guest playing a part of the murder mystery. Wrap up Saturday with a dinner fit for the lumber baron who built Canfield House before you head home on Sunday.
