Michigan’s Depleted Funds So now we know why the Michigan legislators wanted to rush Proposal 1 down our throats.

Legality of Marriage & Divorce An article in the May 25th issue of Time reveals that: “We now have reached a point where fewer than half of kids leaving high school will have their parents living together.”

Cold Paradise Your May 18 cover story “Why is Northern Michigan So White?” is preposterous. For starters, we have plenty of diversity in this region: German, Polish, Swedish, Lithuanian, Norwegian, French Canadian, etc. – all groups that flourish in colder, harsh winter climates.

Unpave Those Roads Michigan legislators recently put before the people a proposal to increase tax to increase funds to the DOT and road commissions across the state for road repairs. The proposal failed by a significant margin.

BOURBON TAKES FLIGHT AT LOW BAR

When the Prohibition era-inspired Low Bar opened last fall in Traverse City, it replicated the same innovative spirit that had already been applied to its upstairs brother bar, 7 Monks Taproom.

Riffing off a common winery and brewery practice, owners Matt Cozzens and Jim Smolak debuted Low Bar’s new bourbon flights program, procuring varietals like the legendarily rare Pappy Van Winkle’s Family Reserve.

“It’s hard enough to find a bottle; this is one of the only places I can think of where you can try a pour,” said bartender Jessie Deiss of the highly sought-after bourbon.

Pick any three brands off Low Bar’s bourbon, rye and Scotch list to create your own flight, containing three, .75 ounce pours for 50 percent off the listed menu price.

The basement level bar even has its own in-house bourbon, the Low Bar Single Barrel Journeyman Featherbone created exclusively for the bar by Journeyman Distillery in Three Oaks, Mich.

Another incentive for bourbon fans: A bottle of Low Bar’s house spirit comes included free with a locker rental, where for $450 per year frequent customers can store wine and liquor bottles on-site for future visits.

Locker members also receive an engraved rocks glass, discounts on wine and spirits, x and complimentary mixers and invitations to members only events . For more information, visit lowbartc.com.
