February Mitt Roundup

Our monthly Mitt Roundup is here! In this video, we talk about the four things we are obsessed with this month at Inn Season Cafe, Coach Insignia, Detroit Tough and Bistro 82.

Don’t forget, every month we will be rounding up our favorite Michigan based businesses and letting you know what’s going on around our state. Thanks for joining us on our journey as we eat, drink, shop and volunteer our way through the Mitt.






Creative menus & a lovely view at Twisted Olive

Four daily menus with a “coastal Mediterranean” twist, pages upon pages of wines selected by the World’s 127th Master Sommelier, Ron Edwards, and a beautiful view of the Little Traverse Bay is what you will get at Twisted Olive in Petoskey. Whether you visit this spot in the morning, afternoon or evening, you will be greeted with a selection of delightful food & drinks in a cozy setting with a spectacular view.

Azteca: Authentic Mexican served in a bright atmosphere

What’s obvious upon arrival at Grand Azteca is the bright colors, friendly atmosphere and authentic Mexican vibe.

The food and decor make this place hard to forget and somewhere you will want to return.

Alchemy: A boutique and spa that awakens your senses

If you are a regular Chick in the Mitt visitor, you know that we want our readers to join us in our journey to See, Hear, Touch, Taste and Feel the state we adore. Notice we have never mentioned Smell…until today.

Recently, we were invited to experience Alchemy, which is a life-style boutique and spa offering facials, henna, handmade goods and atelier workshops. During our visit, Courtney and I experienced a workshop where we created our own botanical perfume using the art of blending plant essences. This experience was totally out of the ordinary and is not only educational but also encourages relaxation and creativity.
