Recently, nature decided to cooperate with us and brought to the mountaintop some very much coveted snow!! Skiing and snowboarding enthusiasts have been flockingly happily to Wisp Resort to get their snow groove on! I, on the other hand, decided to celebrate the holiday with some exciting indoor activity. Bowling!! Still lots of fun with way less chance of falling on my rear! The family and I gathered some good pals and headed to Par-Matt Lanes Bowling alley in Oakland for a day of competitive fun. (****See photo of silly boys being, well, silly! The best way to be, somedays, if you ask me!!) If you haven’t been there in awhile, you should stop in and check out some of the recent upgrades they have made to their lanes. They have made them more kid-friendly by putting up barriers in the gutters to avoid gutter balls. I must admit that I was tempted to use them but refrained. They also keep the kitchen running throughout the day and evening, offering everything from pizza to burgers, wings, nachos, etc. I personally give a big thumbs up with the hot wings! They are delish. If you are looking for some good old fashioned family fun, then I recommend you check out Par-Matt Lanes.
If you are looking for something with a little more flair to it, then you may want to check the McHenry Highland Festival’s annual Robert Burns Supper held this Saturday the 21st at Dutch’s at Silver Tree. Every year, Scots around the world and in Garrett County, gather together to celebrate the birth of Robert Burns, author of many Scot poems. They celebrate his life with entertainment such as readings of his poems and of course, bagpipes. Scottish delicacies such as Sheppard’s pie, shortbread, and haggis (I will let you google this one on your own. It’s sounds very, ummm, interesting). Of course, let’s not forget the whisky tasting (I have to wonder if this is a direct result of the haggis!) Tickets are only a mere $45 per person and can purchased on the McHenry Highland Festivals website, attached on here. Sounds like a guaranteed good time! Reports of fresh snow is on the way so be sure to call Taylor-Made Deep Creek Vacations for some great last minute deals on your vacation home! In the meantime, see you around the lake!!
