Tonight at the Marina Grand Resort in New Buffalo, Michigan the Third Annual Birdhouse Auction to benefit Harbor Country Public Arts Initiative: This is a great chance to own a one-of-a-kind piece of art by some great artists. The event which runs from 5 pm to 8 pm ET includes two glasses of wine or two beers and appetizers by Bentwood's Jenny Drilon. Limited tickets available at door for $25. If you can't make it tonight consider the afternoon beverage tasting option---Saturday Seminar---also at the Marina Grand at 4 pm ET.
And a feast for the eyes on the Lettuce Entertain You Facebook site with the January favorites that will inspire you to eat, simple healthy foods at least for this weekend. My favorite tomato and basil flatbread here is from the Mity Nice cafe in Water Tower Place, Chicago.
