Whiskey Wednesdays is a collaborative event in partnership with Grandma’s Restaurants meant for everyone from the first-time whiskey drinker or the seasoned scotch fan.
So why whiskey? Here’s the tie-in to Glensheen: 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.
So as a fun way to explore that unique part of American history and In honor of Chester’s support of booze, we have created Whiskey Wednesdays.
One of the most common drinks of the time – was Whiskey.
Whiskey though was not commonly thought of as the sophisticated drink of the wealthy. In addition, there are persistent rumors that Clara Congdon was against booze.
Sip on a whiskey while in the newly opened garage with close friends and family.
