With deer hunting season kicking off November 15, hunters have packed up and hit the woods. If we assume that even half the holders of the 1.1 million hunting licenses sold last year have a significant other at home, that leaves a great many housewives (and perhaps a few house husbands) who deserve their own escape.
Thankfully, Michigan provides plenty of opportunity for “Deer Widows” and their brethren to enjoy the season, no camouflage required. From wine tasting in Traverse City to poker night in Ludington, there are lots of great ways to relax before the holiday rush.
A few special opportunities include:
Ladies’ Weekend Expo at the Lansing Center
Dance classes, massage, self-defense and food sampling will compliment exhibits on beauty, health, home décor, travel and wine, with a firefighters fashion show on Saturday and a show-wide scavenger hunt Sunday.
Whitetail Widow’s Weekend at the Palmer House B & B in Albion
A special package includes a light breakfast and body massage, with plenty of great shopping in Historic Marshall. Grab a bite at the famous Schuler’s Restaurant & Pub before taking in a movie, and wake Sunday morning to a gourmet breakfast.
