The Soo

My husband and I traveled to Sault Ste. Marie over the long Memorial Day weekend. Our main purpose was to see Gabriel Iglesius (aka "fluffy guy," Not so fluffy these days as he has lost 105 pounds. Still, so very funny. Here's our trick. When we agree on something: we go.

We also meandered downtown to check out the locks and shorefront, taking the time to visit Sault Ste. Marie Brewery or Soo Brew, I am normally not much of a beer drinker (I "taste"), but I had a pint of their Peace Sign IPA. Tasty but lethal. I learned  first hand about IBU's and ABV's.

We ate at The Palace Restaurant, and I had the special Chipotle Skirt Steak. I wish I had taken a porn-food-style photo, if only to help me remember the dish so I could recreate. YUM.

We also golfed at Tanglewood Marsh, It was good to get out -- our first outing of the year. We also managed another nine at Little River closer to home, 

Gorgeous weather... gorgeous trip. I give it all the highest rating on the "Satisfaction Index." Worth repeating!
