  1. You should add distilleries to your list! I know there’s a whiskey distillery in the downtown area. But my personal favorite is Northern Latitudes Distillery. They make awesome bloody marys with their horseradish vodka.

  2. I live in Traverse City and that’s a really good list. Only things I would add are Scalawags to the lunch suggestions, and Earthen Ales and Terra Ferma to the brews section.
