Weekend Review

This weekend was so much fun, I'm sad to see it end. However, I just have to make it through 7.5 more work days before I have a nice long weekend and get to enjoy my most favorite holiday. Can you believe the 4th of July is just around the corner?

Friday night Mr. Man, Andy, and I went up to the cabin and mom and dad had the grill going with some burgers and potatoes. 

The weather was iffy on Saturday with chances of storms. There were big storms that went through Minneapolis but fortunately they missed the cabin and we just dealt with some clouds. Since we weren't sure what we would get for weather Andy and I headed to Hayward to check out a brewpub called the Angry Minnow.

 It was so good and I will definitely go again. I just got their Blonde and the most delicious whole wheat pretzel with siracha mayo and Andy did the beer flight.

When we drove in to Hayward we saw a sign for Hook Stone Winery and found out it was within walking distance from the Angry Minnow. 

We sat at the bar and we both did the wine tasting. It was a small pour of each of their wines for only $6, plus you got to keep the logo wine glass!

We were talking to the owner and he said that he gets all of his grapes from CA but he makes all of the wine in house. We didn't buy anything, but kept a list of our favorites. He makes a very good Port and a delicious red sangria.

The whole winery is full of cookey signs like these. Some more PG than others.

Since it was Musky Fest we thought it would only be fitting to stop in to the Moccasin which is a bar that has the largest Musky on record mounted along with a lot of other silly stuffed animals in funny settings.

I died when I saw this. I still can't get over the bear paying off the rabbit with a carrot for an Ace. The whole bar was like this. Plus we got New Glarus Spotted Cow on tap for only $2. I love small town WI.

We were surprised to see how long we had been gone for so we headed back to the cabin as the sun was starting to come out so we insisted on taking a boat ride. We packed our coolers and finally got to enjoy a nice boat ride.

I can't confirm what went on the rest of the night because I enjoyed too much wine, but I know Andy and I made a nice pork loin, garlic mashed potatoes and corn on the cob for dinner.

We were woken up on Sunday by some pretty serious thunder. It was actually a really nice way to be woken up with the rain and breeze and just being able to lay in bed and enjoy it. We had a leisurely morning and wanted to get on the road so we could get back home around noon. Well, things took an unplanned turn about five minutes in to the drive home.

Most of the drive home the posted speed limit is 70 mph. Fact: Max speed on a spare is 50 mph. It was awful and embarrassing but we made it back with no other problems...until I got home and saw this in the back yard.

It's not bad compared to some other houses. The house across the street had a huge tree completely uprooted, and a couple others had large trees fall on their homes. Luckily, we also have power. I know a few people have been without power since Friday night.

What did you do this weekend?
