An Afternoon To Myself

By: SocialJM

My group had plans to hit the trails, so I decided to slip away to Downtown Gaylord in search of an outfit for a friend’s wedding.

Seams Like New

First stop was to fuel up at Seams Like New, an eclectic coffee shop and consignment store.   I ordered a Berry White Latte and relaxed, swaying gently in the hanging chairs.   Other seating options were historical theater seats and old time school desks.  Then I spent some time browsing the art from many local artisans.  The entire back of the store is packed with upscale resale fashions.


That latte gave me the boost I needed.  Next stop Woolybuggers, this store is huge!  They have beautiful Women’s clothing & accessories, home décor and a selection of mostly Michigan made food products.  The huge selection of dog breed socks caught my eye.  I am now the proud owner of a Springer Spaniel pair.  Found a gift for the wedding here, too!


Locals told me women love Lilly Rose Boutique for the latest fashions at a great price; I now see why!  Find in season clothing, shoes and accessories here.  Clothes I can wear to work, parties and at home.  They post pictures of new items on social media, and will ship in the USA and Canada, too!


Sportswear for young men & women can be found at Solli’s Causal Wear.  Now I’m not considered a young woman, but I found plenty that was appropriate for me!  They carry the very popular Sanuk shoes too, known for their comfort.


I couldn’t leave Downtown Gaylord without visiting Hogan’s Jewelers.  Hogan’s has been a downtown staple for over 50 years.  Their customer service is first class.  I found the perfect earrings to accent my new outfit and a watch for husband!



Celebrate National Chicken Wing Day in Gaylord, Michigan

When it comes to hot wings we’ll be your wing-man.  Guess you could say we’re traditionalists.  We like wings in their “original “natural state (bones in) Buffalo style and when we say original, we’re referring to the original brand Frank’s Red Hot Sauce.

“In 1964 Frank’s Redhot® Cayenne Pepper Sauce was used as the secret ingredient for the first ever Buffalo wings in Buffalo, New York, putting it on the map and starting the flavor craze that has led to consumers obsession with all things Buffalo-flavor.” Hence the name Buffalo Wings!

In celebration of #NationalChickenWingDay today, July 29, we asked you, “where is the best place for wings in the Gaylord area?”

Asian zing, parmesan, lime, teriyaki, sweet and savory, barbeque, spicy barbeque we’ve got you covered.  There is something about these messy little, meat lacking, sauce laden, finger lickin’, lip smacking, delights that cause you to lose all etiquette unleashing the primal caveman in you as you eat with your hands shamelessly chewing meat off a bone.

The locals have voted and are sharing Gaylord’s best kept secrets on where you can get your wing fix on.

Here are a few favorites you will want to try on your next visit:

Bennethum’s Northern Inn (just south of Gaylord across from Otsego Lake on Old 27) Joyce Farms free range chicken drumettes feature a house-made garlic-chili-herb hot sauce with Jalapeno ranch dip. Another favorite is their Asian Wings

Tap 32 – (directly downtown Gaylord) Savory, Sweet and spicy asian chicken wings.

Treetops Resort – (Just east of town on Wilkinson Rd.) A variety of creative takes on the classic wing from traditional to Jack Daniels Glaze and…Blueberry Pomegranate?!

Last, but certainly not least…LaSenorita keeps the tradition alive (downtown Gaylord just east of the railroad tracks) 10 chicken wings sauced and tossed in your choice of flavor — original, hot honey, chipotle BBQ, garlic pepper. Around here locals know Monday night is wing night.
