Disheartened

While observing Fox News, it was disheartening to see what their viewers were subjected to. It seems the Republicans’ far right wing extremists are conveying their idealistic visions against various nationalities, social diversities or political beliefs with an absence of emotion concerning women’s health issues, children’s rights, voter suppression, Seniors, Social Security, Medicare and Medicaid...

Things That Matter

All of us in small towns and large not only have the right to speak on behalf of our neighbors and ourselves, we have the duty and responsibility to do so -- and 238 years ago, we made a clear Declaration to do just that...

An Anecdote Driven Mind

So, is Thomas Kachadurian now the Northern Express’ official resident ranter? His recent factfree, hard-hearted column suggests it. While others complain about the poor condition of Michigan’s roads and highways, he rants against those we employ to fix them...

No On Prop 1

Are we being conned? Are those urging us to say “yes” to supposedly ”revenue neutral” ballot proposal 1 on August 5 telling us all the pertinent facts? Proposal 1 would eliminate the personal property tax businesses pay to local governments, replacing its revenue with a share of Michigan’s 6 percent use tax paid by us all on out-of-state purchases, hotel accommodations, some equipment rentals, and telecommunications...

Fix VA Tragedy

The problems within the Veterans Administration identified under former President Bush continue to hinder the delivery of quality health care to the influx of physically wounded and emotionally damaged young men and women...

Women Take Note

I find an interesting link between the Supreme Court Hobby Lobby and the crisis on the southern border. Angry protesters shout at children to go home. These children are scared, tired, hungry and thirsty, sent to US prisons awaiting deportation to a country where they may very likely be killed...

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.
