A couple weeks ago H mentioned to me that he had a conference he to attend at the Grand Traverse Resort & Spa, my mouth started watering at the thought of another TC wine tasting so I put in my PTO request and joined him. We left for TC after he got home from class on Thursday night. We arrived in TC a little after 1:30am. We stayed in the old part of the hotel, not the tower. This could've been why our room was only $80/night. It was clean but very dated decor. Bed was comfy and clean with the all white linens most hotels are doing now. Friday I went to the spa to kill time. I made an appointment for a manicure/pedicure. It was relaxing and a good time killer however totally not worth the price tag. I've had far better mani/pedis for less money at a local Aveda salon. That was a bummer because it wasn't cheap and as I type this all of the my fingernails have chipped and the chipping started on Sunday (2 days after).
Friday night we ate at The Jolly Pumpkin on the Old Mission Peninsula and liked the atmosphere. H tried a Honey Wheat beer that was awesome. We'd definitely eat there again.
Saturday was more napping, and general wasting time on the Internet for me. It was awesome! Saturday night we met up with friends we hadn't seen in 7 years for drinks (they are TC residents). We had a blast at a "cool bar" filled with young tattooed, pierced whores with way too much make up on shrieking at the top of their little
Several bottles of wine in our trunk later, we drove further up the peninsula to our FAVORITE- 2 Lads Winery.
