Crowd at Hungarian Falls    ...scroll down to share comments

Mary Drew at Pasty Central on Wednesday, June 16, 2004 - 05:41 am:

There have been a number of photos of the Hungarian Falls in Tamarack City, but I'm not sure I've ever seen a side shot of it like this one from Jeff Kalember. If you look closely at the people in the shot, it looks like each one is either taking or has just finished taking a picture of the steep falls, just out of the frame. Anyone who has visited those falls in person can vouch for the fact that it is a very picturesque cascade indeed. With all the bright new greenery abounding and the rocks warmed by the sun, it looks like a great place to "set a spell" and conjure up some dreams!

Speaking of dreams... you can make your Pasty dream come true on July 4th, and if you're one of the first 400 to attend the upcoming Pasty Fest 2004, you'll receive your dream pasty free... only 18 more days to go!

Troll in Eagle Harbor......What is the name of the motel near the beach in E. H.??..I called the Lake Breeze but they are filled for July 24th......I'll be staying in Lake Linden but want to take both "Celebration of the Lights Cruises" which leave the harbor at 8am. I am afraid of fog early in the morning so decided to stay nearby.

By Kevin K. Lodi, CA. on Wednesday, June 16, 2004 - 06:12 am:

Bthecute1, San Jose :
What are you doing up so late/early?

By Bthecute1, San Jose on Wednesday, June 16, 2004 - 06:15 am:

Kevin of Lodi: Aghhhhhhhhhhhhh, I forgot. What was the question again?

By Bthecute1, San Jose on Wednesday, June 16, 2004 - 06:18 am:

Kevin: I think I had visions of apricots and peaches dancing in my head.

By Kevin K. Lodi, CA. on Wednesday, June 16, 2004 - 06:22 am:

Bthecute1, San Jose:
For me thats not a vision, it's a nightmare.

Pistons win – Governator invited to Pasty Fest 2004

(Calumet) – Governor Jennifer Granholm’s winning bet with California Governor Arnold Schwarzenegger assures that the Governator will be treated to a Michigan pasty and Vernors while wearing a Piston’s jersey. The good natured challenge between the two state executives would have meant a meal of In-N-Out burger for Granholm, if the Lakers had come out on top.

Main Street Calumet and Pasty Central have issued an invitation to Schwarzenegger’s office for the Governor to serve on the panel of judges at PASTY FEST 2004. The goal of the competition – held in Calumet on the Fourth of July - is to find the U.P.’s most delicious pasty. Reports indicate that the former movie star developed a taste for the regional favorite during his days as a student at UW-Superior.

No word yet from Sacramento regarding the Governors schedule on July 4th.

For more information about PASTY FEST 2004 see www.mainstreetcalumet.com or phone Main Street Calumet at 906-337-MAIN (337-6246).

Mary Lou - Are you talking about the Shoreline Resort? It is located right next to the beach. I had heard it was up for sale - does anyone know about that? There is also the Eagle Harbor Inn and the Westlake Cabins in Eagle Harbor. Best of luck!

By SUZANNE/ WISCONSIN on Wednesday, June 16, 2004 - 07:38 am:

What about the Celebration of Lights cruises? We are in Copper Harbor at that time and I would like more info about it. Is that the only weekend they are having it?

By maijaMI on Wednesday, June 16, 2004 - 08:01 am:

The Shoreline is open under new management.

By Marmaduke in Alabama on Wednesday, June 16, 2004 - 09:07 am:

Shoreline is not opened! Left the Harbor this past Monday.

By Kate, CA on Wednesday, June 16, 2004 - 09:36 am:

I'm a die hard Laker fan (Phil Jackson fan, actually)- not trying to sully the posts here, honest....But the Pistons completely outplayed them. They looked great on the court, so athletic and sharp. Congratulations to the team and their fans. I'm glad they finally got a coach who could spur them to victory. Maybe Pasty.net can team up with the Pistons. Can see the ads now. "Detroit Pistons - Pasty Powered"

(Don't forget the Toivo and Eino Sauce for Aaaaaaahhhhhhnold.)

Where is Hungarian Falls

By ed c on Wednesday, June 16, 2004 - 10:33 am:

Cant beat the memory of hand fishing for speckies in the Hungarian and stuffing them in a BUNNY BREAD wrapper...Kenny, Mac, Walley, Rock and Hookie can attest to this......

By Dave, Laurium on Wednesday, June 16, 2004 - 10:55 am:

Hey, I had some of that Toivo and Eino sauce the other day on my pasty, it was GREAT. Tastes great on burgers too....

By Connie, F.t Belvoir VA on Wednesday, June 16, 2004 - 11:25 am:

Yes, how do you get to the falls?
I heard that Mt. Baldy is private now and off limits, any truth to that??
16 days and counting....

By cheryl mi on Wednesday, June 16, 2004 - 11:33 am:

I remember going to the falls when I was a little girl.It was beautiful then as it is now. Up above the falls lived a hermit. We used to like to go to his property line to peek at him. His dogs would start barking and the we'd run like the dickens. He'd come to town to get his groceries and carry them in a sack. He never bothered anyone but there was a mystic about him to us little kids. I can't remember his name off hand, does anyone else remember him?

By Troll, Lower MI on Wednesday, June 16, 2004 - 12:02 pm:

Ahhhh, my old swimming hole back in the early 60's.... what a refreshing dip especially when it was in the 80's and 90's. You got in and out real fast!!!

By Roger -- Ishpeming on Wednesday, June 16, 2004 - 12:35 pm:

Cheryl, when were you a little girl?

By shelly/Yankee in Texas on Wednesday, June 16, 2004 - 12:36 pm:

Did our guys deliver last night or what?? Teamwork is a basic winning principal that the 2 Laker players needed to learn last night! Take note O'neil and Kobe!!!!

By the way, good morning from stormy Houston!

By Bthecute1, San Jose on Wednesday, June 16, 2004 - 02:10 pm:

Kevin: Tell me, did you dance an Irish jig when you saw that sticker? Honestly!!!!!!

By Penny, Portland, Oregon on Wednesday, June 16, 2004 - 02:11 pm:

We are in the final countdown for our move back home to Michigan..this is a fabulous site that makes me want to be home now!!!

By Just Wondering on Wednesday, June 16, 2004 - 03:58 pm:

To: bthecute1 & KevinK -- Can't you just exchange information via e-mail? Inside jokes are boring to non-insiders.

By Mary Lou on Wednesday, June 16, 2004 - 04:06 pm:

CORRECTION:.... "Celebration of Lights Cruise" departs from Houghton!!..and not the Harbor. I just spoke to Capt. Jason and here is some information....The cruise is limited to 100 passengers..the "Keewenaw Star" departs at 8am and returns about 6pm on Saturday7/24 and 4pm on Sunday 7/25. It includes continental breakfest and lunch and afternoon snax....their phone number is 482-0884.

By cheryl mi on Wednesday, June 16, 2004 - 04:12 pm:

Roger---- a guy isn't supposed to ask a lady her age (LOL) but let's say it's many moons ago. Hint---I was in High School when President Kennedy was shot. How bout you Rog, what's your age? Hey, but my memory came back to me! The hermit's name was Runtamati.

By Jim, Arlington, tx. on Wednesday, June 16, 2004 - 04:46 pm:

"The Bluff" is what we called this part of Hungarian. Spent many days at Hungarian Falls in the mid 60's to 70's. It sure was a refreshing swim in the bluff or in the dam up stream after hiking up from the main falls down stream. The bluff was a little more secluded,and great to skinny dip when you didn't have your swim suit.

By maijaMI on Wednesday, June 16, 2004 - 04:57 pm:

So sorry to hear the Shoreline left Eagle Harbor. Is it for sale?

By Charlie at Pasty Central on Wednesday, June 16, 2004 - 04:58 pm:

To our Pasty Central regulars, you'll be happy to know this afternoon, at Governor Granholm's request, we shipped a half-dozen fresh frozen pasties to The Honorable Arnold Schwarzenegger, Governor of California. Included in the package was a bottle of Toivo & Eino's Really Secret Pasty Sauce, some Fudgy Pasties, a Pasty Pillow, a double extra large "I Love Pasties" T-shirt, a "Calumet Copper Country Metropolis " book, and a 2004 Pasty Cam Calendar. Also we inserted a formal invitation from Main Street Calumet asking the Governor if he'd be willing to serve as a Judge at "Pasty Fest 2004" in Calumet on July 4th.

I know the bet between the 2 Chief Executives was based on which basketball team won, but it looks to me like the real winner was the Governor himself!!

By sandstone princess on Wednesday, June 16, 2004 - 05:25 pm:

I am not a basketball fan, however I started to watch The Game about half way into the 3rd period. WOW Those Pistons were really great. I am truly glad that they won. You do not need big money and big names to have a great team. Looks like they worked hard together. I am now a Piston fan;-)

By Kim near Lansing on Wednesday, June 16, 2004 - 05:57 pm:

Wish I was the Governor, the day that package arrives!!

By CC Gal on Wednesday, June 16, 2004 - 06:05 pm:

Will there be any condiments for the pasties at Pasty Fest?

After 400 are given away, will there be more for purchasing?

Will Toivo be attending this event?

Do you need any volunteers?

By Roger -- Ishpeming on Wednesday, June 16, 2004 - 06:31 pm:

Thank you, Cheryl -- since I was in college [Wheaton College -- Illinois] during President Kennedy's shooting, it's okay -- I'm working on the decade following six [ref, my birthday greeting to Lois Hart on Monday].

I'd like to know more about this hermit -- I've often aspired to become one myself ... but my wife won't let me. Ha!

By Troll in Eagle Harbor on Wednesday, June 16, 2004 - 07:51 pm:

MARY LOU...The motel on the E.H.beach is the SHORELINE...I haven't heard when they will be opening for the season.I heard that a sale on the place is pending...I hope you enjoy your cruise and I'm sorry I can't be of much help.

By Charlie Edwards, Saginaw on Wednesday, June 16, 2004 - 08:20 pm:

Your picture of the "Hungarian Falls" posted on June 16 is up stream approx. 100 yards or so from the true Hungarian Falls. Although it could be considered part of the Hungarian Falls system it was typically known as the "Bluff" when I was growing up in Tamarack Mills and swimming there as a teen in the 50's. I still visit there every summer and enjoy it as much as ever.

By HN from St. Johns on Wednesday, June 16, 2004 - 09:07 pm:

Shelly from Texas:
You asked me a week or so ago if Uncle John's Cider MIll was open yet. We went by there today on our way back from the Copper Country, and yes it is.

By Patt - Mid - Michigan on Wednesday, June 16, 2004 - 09:21 pm:

Hey Charlie!! Was wondering if we can cheat and get in line twice for those pasties at Pasty Fest?(snicker, snicker)

I just got the word from work that we will be closed the Monday after the 4th so this troll wanna-be is heading up that weekend to visit the son who is taking some field classes at Tech this summer. Get to kill 2 birds with one stone that way. Mom gets to see the son she misses AND get the wonderful pasties you guys make.

By Bthecute1, San Jose on Wednesday, June 16, 2004 - 09:24 pm:

To Just Wondering: I am sorry if I ruffled your feathers. I was just having a little fun. Sometimes it feels good to wake up on the right side of the bed!

By Kevin K, Lodi, CA. on Wednesday, June 16, 2004 - 09:33 pm:

Bthecute1, San Jose :
Kevin: Tell me, did you dance an Irish jig when you saw that sticker? Honestly!!!!!
I would answer that but it appears that we are annoying.."Just Wondering" ...
But then again who cares, Yes I did dance an Irish Jig!
Just Wondering: The so called "inside joke" is on yesterdays postings, check it out and get enlightened.

By UPfriend on Wednesday, June 16, 2004 - 10:41 pm:

Charlie, will you keep us posted on Arnold's response
to the Michigan pasty package?

By Ken and Mimi from da UP on Wednesday, June 16, 2004 - 11:19 pm:

Hei, Charlie Edwards, it is a looonng time since we swam at the Hungarian Dam and the Bluff. Aren't these falls the ones we called the Mama Falls? Was in May of '56 or '57, Don Michelson (from Elo.) and I were crossing that big rock that angles down to the water. (There was ice around the edges yet.) He fell in and I've never seen anyone swim SO fast across that pool. :>) 'Course, not to be out done, I had to jump in, too. Man, it was COLD.

By SDC, Ferndale, MI on Thursday, June 17, 2004 - 12:15 pm:

Charles Edward, Saginaw:
Yes, we use to call it the Bluff when we were kids. I lived a house away from your family and your sister Joyce was a good friend of mine while we lived in Tamarack/Hubbell. Good memories. Now I'm a troll!

By rwa, Keller TX on Thursday, June 17, 2004 - 12:28 pm:

Ahh, the Bluff...brings back many memories..spent hours playing in that area as a kid growing up on Tamarack Hill...Dad always told a story about nearly drowning there as a kid. Only 6 days to go before we get back to our log cabin in Freda...can't wait!

By Charles Edwards on Thursday, June 17, 2004 - 09:15 pm:

Hello sdc. Can't figure out who you are. Joyce lives in Marquette now. Is married and one daughter.

By SDC, Ferndale, MI on Friday, June 18, 2004 - 04:16 pm:

Charles Edwards:
I don't think you'd remember us as you were not living at home the time we lived there. We moved back to Detroit in 1965. I did hook up briefly with Joyce on this site after almost 40 years, gulp, I feel oooollllddd....
