Beans Bunny Day, on February 2nd, is similar to groundhogs day, if the bunny on top of the beans elevator sees its shadow on a sunny morning, there will be 6 more weeks of winter. I think our bunny is way better at predicting the weather in Saginaw then Punxsutawney Phil in Gobblers Knob. It’s also a little like St Patrick’s day, but instead of getting hammered on green beer, it’s a day to get out and do something in Saginaw with your family and friends. You cold go out to breakfast, or visit one of the awesome local museums such as the Castle or Children’s museum. Go antique shopping in Old Town or maybe go to one of the schools and watch a sporting event. There are lots of fantastic and unique restaurants to get dinner at in Saginaw, and you could even get the unofficial sandwich of Saginaw, the steak sandwich. Later in the evening you could go to a purveyor of alcohol and get some adult beverages at one of the many saloons and bars in town and the fact that it falls on a Sunday means you may just have to celebrate it all weekend long. Beans bunny day is not about buying gifts, or making resolutions that you know you will break, then hate yourself for it later. It’s about spending time with your family, in a city that has so many wonderful places that you can not find anywhere else. If you don’t live in Saginaw, I suggest you get out to a local mom and pop business and let them know you care by purchasing something from them. It’s the local mom and pop establishments that give a city its unique character, and you know the owners started their business in your city because they care about the town they are in, not because a bunch of market research suggested they would obtain good profits in that location. I hope you get out and support your local businesses not only on beans bunny day but every day.
