People, it is a quadruple holiday weekend! We have surpassed the normal hat trick and gone straight to the big-time! Sure, it’s going to be flipping colder than snot but it’s President’s Day weekend. It’s Mardi Gras (pre-Fat Tuesday) Weekend. It’s the first weekend of NASCAR – it’s the Daytona 500! And it’s Valentine’s Day weekend! Does it get any bigger than that???? I don’t think so!
So let’s talk plans you can make for the weekend!
Friday night, you can go old-school and rollerskate at UMBA Hall in Underwood starting at 7! I also hear Minden Bowl and Henry’s Diner in Crescent will both be offering prime rib dinners both Friday and Saturday nights! Yum!
Saturday, you can get in your day of skiing at Mount Crescent! Although the temps are keeping them closed most of the weekend, they will be open 11am to 5pm (just on Saturday) for you to get your powder fix!
The Beauty Bar at Blossoms in Oakland is also having a Galentine's Pampering Day with scalp facials, blowouts, hot alcoholic beverage bar, and treats along with product specials! You must call for a reservation. She says she might be able to squeeze a couple more in! Plus, while you're there, you can see Turquoise Tractor's selection of hot items! And Deb at Blossoms is hosting a wine tasting 10am to 2pm along with having 20% off!
Saturday night, you can do the Carson Valentine Party Cruise from 6 to 7pm on Broadway in Carson! It’s free and the first 25 cars get a swag bag! This is Carson’s little way of letting you know that they have a Main Street Coordinator now and they are ready to bring you added entertainment!
Plus, The Bar’N and Grill in Carson is serving up Dinners for 2 before and after the cruise! Whether you’re in the mood for steak, prime rib, or fettucine alfredo, they are doing 3-course meals just for you!
You might also want to check out the I-80 Lounge in Underwood. They are having a prime rib meal for 2 that includes shrimp and a bottle of wine, as well. Dine in or carry out. Reservations are required though so be sure to call ahead.
Sunday brings more chances to avoid cooking! You can still get tickets till noon on Friday for the Sweethearts Night Out event that’s happening at The Palace Event Center outside Treynor starting at 6. The evening will be dinner and a comedian show!
So yes, it’s going to be freaking cold, but we live in Iowa and if we can handle COVID, we can handle the cold! We are Pott. County! We can do anything!
Have a great quad-acious weekend!
