It seems like yesterday that we blogged about Ice Cream For Breakfast! But here we are a month and a half later wondering where the summer went…

Either way this summer was one of our best! We had the warmest summer in decades, many fun events on property, a record number of sold out nights, and so many great guests stay with us. Needless to say we’ve been a little busy…

Here’s what we’ve been up to since our last post:

Jack’s 80s Beach Party – Saturday, July 24th

Wow! And we thought our first 80s Party in April was radical! This turned out to be our biggest bar night of the year – even surpassing New Year’s Eve!

We started the fun out at our Tiki Bar with Digital Joes Entertainment spinning everyone’s 80s favorites. We had an 80s dance off to Love Shack by the B-52s and a big hair contest. Later on, we moved the party inside and everyone rocked out to Hat Trick and we handed out prizes for best dressed.

Mark your calendars for our next 80s Party on Saturday, September 25th!!!

Jack’s Country Hootenanny – Saturday, July 31st

We had our first country music event and it did not disappoint! Even those of us who are not fans of country music couldn’t help but have a great time. We had live music on the lawn from The Stolen Horses Band, a YeeHaw Contest, and more!

We can’t wait to have another Hootenanny! Stay tuned….

Grand Haven Coast Guard Festival Parade – Saturday, August 7th

Our Holiday Inn Float

This was our 2nd year in the Coast Guard Festival Parade and we were glad to be able to do it again this year. If you don’t know, Grand Haven Coast Guard Festival is the biggest week of the year for Grand Haven. Hundreds of thousands of people come to our small town to celebrate those who serve and who have served for the United States Coast Guard. They also enjoy the carnival, parades, music, and the fireworks – which are some of the best in the Midwest.

Thanks to everyone who helped make this summer so great! If you didn’t make it out this year, we hope to see you soon! Stay tuned for more events and to learn about our upcoming renovations!
