Pigtails and Plaid Skirts

Editorial Review

"Pigtails and Plaid Skirts" is both the name of and the dress code for Tonic's fifth anniversary party. (This applies for both sexes, so get out the kilts.) The bar and restaurant has turned into a Mount Pleasant landmark, and they're celebrating tonight with drink specials and other surprises from 8 p.m. until last call. This is also a birthday party for owner Eric "Bernie" Bernstrom, so be sure to wish him the best and try not to say anything too mean about his beloved Detroit Lions.
