Northern Lights Recreation, The Sassy Loon Bar & Grill and our Employees appreciate the loyalty of our customers and 
we are READY for you to be BACK!


To our Valued Customers:  

​On Friday, December 18, 2020, Governor Whitmer announced the revised Health Department's executive orders, effective Monday, December 21, 2020.  
With these revised orders, restaurants must remained closed for indoor dining.  

The Sassy Loon Bar and Grill at Northern Lights will continue to serve takeout food, seven days a week, from noon until 8 pm, each day. 
 We will also open our outdoor patio on the weekends for those who wish to dine outdoors, weather permitting.

The revised order also allows our recreational area to reopen, with strict restrictions. 

Our bowling lanes, arcade and laser tag arena are allowed to reopen with 
up to six (6) people who LIVE IN THE SAME HOUSEHOLD 
per lane for bowling and per game for laser tag 
beginning Monday, December 21, 2020 from Noon to 8 PM, seven days a week.  

Masks MUST be worn the ENTIRE time you are in our facility.  

No food or drinks will be served to any customer before, during or after bowling, playing laser tag or playing in the arcade.

  If you would like to purchase any food or drinks, you may place your order, including alcoholic beverages, 
for takeout or patio dining ONLY before or after recreational play.

The above orders will remain in effect until January 15, 2021, or until they are again revised. 

Please NOTE: We will be closed on Christmas Eve and Christmas Day. 

Again, the GOOD NEWS is, we are OPEN for bowling, laser tag and arcade play AND 
will continue to offer our full food and drink menu via take out. 
Food orders will be available here at www.NorthernLightsRec.com 
OR you may call us at 231-347-3100.  

You may place an order as early as 11:15 am, with pick up at noon and until 7:30 pm with pick up by 8 pm, seven days a week.  

For pick up, you may enter our restaurant through our front door and your food will be ready at the end of our bar. 
If you would prefer to have a staff member deliver your food to your vehicle instead of coming inside, please let our staff member know
 that when calling or note that, along with your vehicle color and type in the “notes” section when ordering online. 
If you come inside our building to pick up food, you MUST wear a mask.

Please know that we will continue to use every precaution in preparing your food and bringing it to your vehicle. 
Our staff will always be masked and following the Health Department recommended protocol for everyone's safety.

We hope that you continue to support our efforts during this very difficult time.  
We will see you all again in person very soon! Thank you for your continued support.
