I realize Christmas isn’t here yet, but now is the time to plan for a New Year’s weekend getaway in Door County. Mike’s Port Pub and Innlet Motel in Jacksonport has an awesome New Year’s eve package that includes a room, two Prime Rib dinners, drinks and party favors for $175 per couple. Nice. Then catch the Annual Polar Bear Plunge at the Jacksonport beach at noon. After that, skip back over to watch the Egg Harbor New Years Day Parade at 1:00. This year Egg Harbor has dubbed the weekend Frosty Fest which includes an Icy Fun Run to benefit the Y. I won’t be able to participate in the run, but watch for us in the parade. The girls and I will ride in the hot tub with a surprise guest (hopefully). We have a great theme this year, but it remains a secret until we put the float together in the morning at the church. Our parade wouldn’t be complete without our baton twirling Santa… Christine Tierney from Christine’s Casuals and Classics.
The Egg Harbor Lion’s Club sells brats downtown and most of the boutiques, restaurants and wineries will be open. The Wisconsin Badgers play in the Rose Bowl at 3:30 and all the bars will have the game on… WOW… what a great day! Coincidentally, Joe’s friend Betsy Byrne’s brother, Jake Byrne is a Badger… watch for number 82 who plays tight end. January 1st is also my niece Jen’s, 22nd birthday, so all of my family will be out in full force celebrating the occasion.
So, if you are sick of staying home or going to your boring neighbor’s for dinner on New Years Eve, come hang out with us in Door County. Trust me, it’s a blast.
