Après winter activities, anyone?
GAYLORD — Winter activities work up quite an appetite. Gaylord has plenty of places to warm up after a big day in the snow.
• Treetops Resort is hosting a spectacular culinary experience. The Skiable Feast gourmet winter adventure takes you on a 6 kilometer (3.8 mile) cross-country ski excursion. What could possibly be better than cross-country skiing through beautiful trails in Northern Michigan? How about gourmet food and drink stations along the way? You can take this trek at your own pace along with your friends and family while enjoying five gourmet food and beverage stations along the way. Call (866) 348-5249for reservations.
• Otsego Resort is opening strong. The new owners are showing Gaylord they have what it takes to entertain this town. The resort’s Saturday, Jan. 26 Wild Game Dinner is sure to be one for the ages. Bar services will be available at 6 p.m. but come early to see Jakey T take the Sitzmark Bar at 5 p.m. Call (800) 752-5510 for reservations.
• Gaylord’s 8th annual Alpenfrost is closing out its festivities with the 2019 Michigan Beer & Wine Festival at Treetops Resort’s Convention Center from 6 to 10 p.m. Saturday, Feb. 2. Spend the evening mingling and tasting an array of Michigan craft beer and wine. Many popular Great Lakes State breweries and wineries have their hat in this ring. Learn about beer and wine making, tasting notes and the operations of local beer and winemakers.

• If you are looking to enjoy Gaylord with no reservations, The Keg Bar in Waters is open right off of Trail 7in Waters. The atmosphere is warm the staff is friendly, and the food is down to Earth. It is a perfect place to rest after a day snowmobiling the trails. Porter Haus, Bennethum’s Northern Inn, Pine Squirreland the new Belle Iron Grille are two stellar places to eat right off the snowmobile trail. We suggest getting small plates and cocktails at each. Yum.
