A crisp fall night, a pint of Smackintosh, and only the stars to light up the night’s sky made Glasses and Galaxies an event worth attending Friday night at Tandem Ciders in Suttons Bay.
Tandem Ciders partnered with the Leelanau Conservancy Friday night for the event. This unique event raised awareness for the conservancy, while also promoting products made in Leelanau County. Tandem Ciders offered a free pint of hard cider to the first 50 guests while the Leelanau Conservancy promoted awareness of the county’s preservation efforts.
Dick Cookman, a former astronomy professor at Northwestern Michigan College, was on-hand to provide background about telescopes and the night’s sky. Once the sun had set, guests were able to enjoy a dark sky lit up only by stars and a pint of locally crafted hard cider. Glasses and Galaxies captured the essence of Leelanau: the best of what nature has to offer.
