Nominate the special Beach Coast mother in your life!
The term “working mother” is totally redundant. Whether or not she works outside the home (as most mothers do these days), every mother is a working mother. That’s why we want to recognize a deserving Beach Coast mother with some major swag, but we need your help!
Using the form below and in 200 words or less, tell us why your nominee deserves to win these very special gifts donated by generous Beach Coast businesses (listed alphabetically):
Arbor Hill Inn--overnight in a mid-range suite with full breakfast
The Joy of Flowers—a beautiful arrangement delivered to her door
Sage—lunch for two at the Beach Coast’s hottest new restaurant
Serenity Salon & Spa—spa manicure and haircut & style
Velvet Skin Spa—custom corrective facial and makeup application
Please note that the mother you nominate must reside in one of the counties that make up The Beach Coast: Lake, Porter, La Porte, and St Joseph (Indiana) and Berrien County (Michigan).
All entries must be in by 3:00 on Monday, April 24th. The winner will be announced in our May issue and we can’t wait to hear what you have to say about the special mother in your life!
Note: All prizes are exclusive of tips and lunch at Sage is exclusive of tip and alcohol.
Readers’ Choice Award Winner
Congratulations to Chef Jenny Drilon of Bentwood Tavern! Our readers have spoken and Bentwood was voted Favorite Beach Coast Restaurant. What makes it so popular? First and foremost, the innovative and sophisticated menu, which features Jenny’s signature dishes, such as Thai-style Chilean sea bass, along with palate-pleasing entrees like Amish roast chicken, oven-fired pizzas, steaks, chops, and even sushi (on select days). The restaurant is upscale, yet casual, in keeping with The Beach Coast lifestyle. It is located in the Marina Grand Resort and as the weather gets warmer, patrons will have the option of dining outdoors along the marina where they will enjoy both delectable food and a fabulous view.
The names of all readers who entered Bentwood Tavern as their favorite were entered into a random drawing and the winner is Leigh Ann Flora, who will receive a gift card to Bentwood.
Congratulations to Chef Jenny Drilon and to Robert and Colette Kemper, owners of the Marina Grand Resort. If you’re wondering what all the fuss is about it’s time to pick up the phone and make reservations at this Beach Coast dining mecca. Bentwood Tavern is open daily for dinner and drinks, lunch Friday-Sunday, and brunch Saturday and Sunday from 10am-3pm. Reservations are available online or by calling 269.469.1699.
