Among the favorite online exclusive stories you may have missed if you read Shore e-newsletters or check the events and entertainment listings on the VisitShoreMagazine.com site regularly: Valparaiso University held an inaugural Shakespeare week this year with numerous events including a visiting production of As You Like It performed by Actors From the London Stage (a group drawn from the Royal Shakespeare Co., the Royal National Theatre and Shakespeare’s Globe Theatre).
For the first time in 43 years the Glass Art Society held its annual conference in Chicago sparking numerous workshops and competitive exhibitions. Also last month Miller Bakery Café hosted a wine festival day featuring flights of 10 wines for $10. One of the most promoted events on our web site and looked at by more than 1000 Shore FB fans (2723+) and friends was the successful model call held this year at Indian Summer in Chesterton for the Fashion on the Shore event (#FOTS2014).
Shore and the Southwestern Michigan Tourism Council will be presenting more than 20 emerging designers from the top schools in the area. Though you may have missed the opportunity to participate, tickets for the event held each year at the Heritage in St. Joe are still available, although seating is limited. Prices will be higher at the door if the show doesn’t sell out this year. For more information or getting tickets visit Shore online here.
We will have all hands on deck for the Mother’s Day weekend fashion event, the opening of the much-anticipated Harbor Shores luxury hotel and the 2014 Senior PGA tournament coming up at the end of the month. The summer along the Lake Michigan coast is shaping up to be bigger and better than ever—ossibly a game-changing season for our favorite playground.
As much as I like being connected (and always in the loop), there is no substitute for being out there with a fishing pole, golf club or bicycle taking advantage of those great weather days ahead. I’m looking forward to attending many “first annual” events I’m seeing on the calendar at Silver Beach, Harbor Shores, Weko Beach, the St. Joe River in addition to the expansions I know are and underway in Three Oaks, Buchanan and Michigan City. I hope to see you there.
