Terri and I took my parents up to Little River Casino to celebrate my father’s birthday. He really enjoys crab legs and so the Big Lake Buffet’s Prime Rib & Crab Leg special on Saturday night is always a treat for him. Of course, Terri and I don’t mind going either….LOL It is a bit of a drive so we always take the Bug Smacker with us so we don’t need to stay in the hotel. Nothing better than having your own bed to sleep in.

  We are now back at the Tamarack again on the trip back to Michigan. Not much to say that I haven’t already said about this place. This time, however, we arrived in time to enjoy the Friday Night Special. It was called Kate’s Mountain Prime Rib.  Let me tell you the price was great and the Prime Rib was even better.
