Whiskey Wednesdays is an event meant for the first-time whiskey drinker or the seasoned scotch fan. Whiskey Wednesdays are perfect for those looking to soak in the last moments of fall with a safe and physically distant outdoor event.
Whiskey Wednesdays are every Wednesday in October from 5:00 pm – 9:00 pm.
The event is free and open to the public with drinks available for purchase. In addition to whiskey – There will be beer, wine, and non-alcoholic options also available for purchase.
Picnics and food delivery are allowed, however we encourage you to try the local food truck grub that’s available for purchase! The food trucks this month will be The Rambler and K&B Grilled Cheese, alternating each week. So come for dinner, and stay for the Wednesday night magic.
The estate quite literally glows during this event. Fall colors, lakeside campfires, and the estate lights illuminated, it makes for a magical night on the estate. Protip: Whiskey Wednesdays are great for date nights. We encourage you to explore the estate with a drink in hand.
One of the most common drinks of the Congdons’ time – was Whiskey. However, whiskey was not commonly thought of as the sophisticated drink of the wealthy. So in keeping with that history… we serve Whiskey Wednesdays in our newly reopened garage which was a space used by the Servants.
Plus, Chester Congdon served as a member of the Minnesota House of Representatives in 1909 and 1911. This was during the movement to start prohibition and Chester voted against prohibition in every version that came before him.
