Birch Terrace Lounge Patio | Grand Marais MN

Head to the BT (Birch Terrace) for live music on the outside deck/patio overlooking Grand Marais harbor and Lake Superior, with local band MYsterious WAYs,  an “old school” rock trio featuring Pat Eliasen on lead vocals, bass and acoustic guitar, Mike Pratt, lead guitar, and Matt Bronikowski, drums.

The band consists of three friends who have been playing music together for over 20 years. The music selection ranges anywhere from 50’s to 70′ & 80’s classic rock, to even climbing the decibel scale and nailing some Metallica and Ozzy. They also mix in a few original songs, with a little local flavor and humor…..

Best Stargazing
Best Stargazing

New moon nights – night when the moon is absent from the sky – make for great stargazing.

Here’s a great way to start – look due north after the sun has set and find the Big Dipper constellation [see photo] with its telltale 3-star handle and 4-star dipper.

In the summer, the dipper is at ‘9-o’clock’ and hangs dipper down.
