Departure of a New Buffalo, Michigan Landmark

An 'all too common' sign of the times, was posted at Hannah's Restaurant in New Buffalo, Michigan this past Friday. The 23 year old restaurant which was great place to go on Saturday nights in NB shut her doors- a victim of the downturn in the Economy.

New Buffalo, MI is a great sailing destination for many sailors from the Chicago area. Some even have condominiums and/or slips there that serve as their weekend getaway from the big city grind. At KYS, Hannah's was always our Saturday night place to eat during the Michigan City Boat show- so we are sorry to see it close.

Something for the sailing community to think about as this economic mess thickens- we need to support the businesses that are part of the Sailing Life by patronizing them with our presence.
