On the way home from the U.P. we thought it would be fun to stop at Little River Casino for the weekend. It really wasn’t on the way but this is one of the places we like to try to get to every year. So away we went.
We usually come to Little River early in the year. In the spring the RV park is mostly empty. When we arrived this time, we found the place packed. We were lucky to even get a site. There was only 1 spot available to accommodate us for the 2 nights we were going to be there.
We couldn’t wait to get a pizza from Big Al’s. Not only do they have a really great pizza but we haven’t had any pizza our entire trip. I don’t even think they have pizza north of the bridge. At least I didn’t see any pizza places in our travels up there. The pizza from Big Al’s was everything we thought it would be.
On our way into town we discovered that Manistee now has a new Meijer store. We drove right by it on our way to the little Wesco store that we always visit. The people at this little store are super nice and the bakery is to die for.
While at Little River we spend time in the hot tub, the pool, around the community firepit and feeding the hungry slot machines (they sure seemed to enjoy what we were feeding them because it didn’t take them long to gobble it all up.)
On Saturday evening we stopped into the Willows Buffet for a bite to eat. It was Prime Rib & Seafood Buffet night. It has been a whole week since we had all you can eat prime rib and crab legs and we couldn’t wait. The meal was fabulous. In fact I would have to say that besides the crab legs, the rest of the buffet was better than Kewadin’s.
To wrap up our evening we kicked back in the The Grove lounge to listen to a local band perform. I will have to admit though that most of our entertainment came from the audience in the club. You know your typical: old man trying to dance, two young guys hitting on the same young lady, drunk girl yelling her entire life story to the whole bar and the old lady who could shake her “THANG” better than anyone else on the floor. It really was a fun filled evening.
