You won’t want to miss the first Lift Your Spirits events in Bay Harbor’s Downtown Village, celebrating several Michigan distillers. On Friday, April 22, enjoy a five-course fine dining experience, where each course will be paired perfectly with a Michigan craft distilled spirit or cocktail. The evening will also feature live jazz music with a “speak-easy” theme – so don’t forget to dress in your finest vintage attire! Saturday, April 23 will be the larger tasting event, where you’ll be able to stroll through a selection of Michigan distillers for tastings of their hand-crafted selections. Be sure to get your tickets early to both of these events, so you won’t miss out on the fun.
