The folks at Art’s Tavern in Glen Arbor sent us this week’s brownie recipe. We’re told these brownies are truly the best, and the extra few minutes spent making this recipe from scratch will be worth your effort.
Art’s Tavern is open daily from 7am until late. The patio is open for outdoor seating, but with Labor Day (and cooler weather) on the way, that will begin to change in the next month or so. Make a stop at Art’s Tavern while visiting the most beautiful place in America! Art’s is located at 6487 Western Avenue. Call 231-334-3754. www.artsglenarbor.com
