I’m just as guilty as every person reading this.
“There’s nothing to do!” You’ve said it. I’ve said it. Every fish I’ve ever owned has probably thought it.
But this summer there are plenty of opportunities to get outside and enjoy some food and drink events (live music, too!) all around Michiana. We here at Flavor are working on summer event lists to keep you full and happy. All. Summer. Long.
Look for lists for July and August coming soon. If we missed an event in Northern Indiana or Southern Michigan that you know about, let us know in the comments, or email firstname.lastname@example.org, and we’ll be sure to add it to our list.
