I just saw the menu for the July 10 Beer Maker's Dinner in The 6th Alley Bar and Grill. WOW. Chef Rybak will be pairing each of the following five courses with a select beverage from the Left hand Brewing Company:

     Charcuterie and Cheese Board with Sawtooth Ale
     Bacon Wrapped Chicken Roulade with Polestar Pilsner
     Salad and Salmon Ceviche with JuJu Ginger Pale Ale
     Smokey Pork Shank with 400 Pound Monkey English Style IPA
     Dark Chocolate Torte and Hazelnut Ice Cream with Milk Stout

This could be kind of fun. Check out the website for more details and reservations.

Argentine North Fork Trail

The signs are up and The Argentine North Fork Trail is ready to go. I have been up and down it a few times on foot the last week. Despite a little bit of mud, the trail is in very good shape. I have seen a number of people riding to the Summit and down the Lenawee Trail on the backside. I have not yet heard reports about conditions down to Peru Creek Road. Consider a cruise up the trail this weekend to avoid the crowds elsewhere.

North Fork

Beneath all that snow, the North Fork ski trail is actually quite the bubbling stream. I think some might call it a raging creek during run off.
