You can thank the multi-million dollar Wisconsin Tavern League lobbyists for this BS "competition clause." While this was in my March 2018 newsletter that went out last week, I understand some of you haven't signed up or unsubscribed--however, this is important.
This law, if passed, will restrict any place the public rents where alcohol is consumed (not puchased) including barns, parks, etc. It states the LOCATION must have a liquor license, and it won't matter if the caterer has one OR, you the client purchase it for an open bar (no money changing hands for the event.)
THIS LAW HAS THE ABILITY TO PUT ME & BARNS OUT OF BUSINESS. As a reminder and example, a liquor license in Madison WI is $10K...
Wedding barns and myself are contacting WI Senators and calling BS on this bill. Wedding barns are in no way in competition with the bars here.
*Tidbit of Info: There are 3 times as many bars vs. grocery stores in this state.
OPPOSE AB 433!

Enjoy a Ginger B&B this evening!
FEBRUARY IS HERE! HURRICANES ARE ON THE MENU.
- Louisiana is the only state in which Mardi Gras is a legal holiday. However, elaborate carnival festivities draw crowds in other parts of the United States during the Mardi Gras season as well.
FYI: King Cake is only eaten during Mardi Gras. It is braided, laced with cinnamon, and the dough is then glazed with purple, green and gold sugar or covered in icing in those same Mardi Gras colors. What really sets king cake apart from other desserts, however, is the small plastic baby hidden inside. Whoever finds the baby in his or her slice must buy the next cake/cocktail or, host the next party!
Tasty HURRICANE recipe is as follows:
2 oz. Dark rum
2 oz. White rum
2 oz. Passion fruit juice
1 oz. Orange juice
1 oz. Lime juice
1⁄2 oz. Simple syrup
1⁄2 oz. Grenadine
Build over ice in a pint glass. Top with a Boston shaker.
( ( ( SHAKE WELL ) ) ) and strain into a large Hurricane glass (or pint glass) filled with that GOOD ice.
Garnish with an orange half-wheel & a maraschino cherry.
Enjoy; salud! Cheers!
...and Punxsutawney Phil says six (6) more weeks of winter. This cocktail goes to Ms. Nichole D., a photographer and boozy blogger from Baltimore, MD! Catch her; @CocktailCrafty and www.CocktailCrafty.com!
She says, "No two vermouths are the same. They range from herbaceous to spicy, from subtle to rich. I occasionally like to enjoy a glass of Carpano Antica Formula Sweet Vermouth chilled. It's dark and rich with hints of cocoa and spice."
