Northern Michigan Events: The entertainment is rolling in for the Red Hot Best of Bash at Turtle Creek Casino near Traverse, May 17. What's up at this Traverse, Northern Michigan's Magazine and MyNorth.com sponsored-event? How about two belly dancers working the crowd, courtesy of Zakey's Middle Eastern Cuisine in downtown Traverse City. Then get ready to feel the lampoon-harpoon as MyNorth.com blogger and comedian Anita Merlot takes to the stage to spear us with her Southern Belle take on Northerners. Traverse City singer/songwriter Drew Hale will be singing, and restaurants like downtown Traverse City's Amical will be dishing (creme brulee in Amical's case!) .... and dozens of other Northern Michigan restaurants and wineries
And its all to benefit some fabulous Northern Michigan causes: The Manna Project (Petoskey), Traverse Health Clinic (Traverse City) and The Leelanau Conservancy (Leelanau County).
