Minneapolis’ new event venue has a lot to offer.
The name of Minneapolis’ new whiskey commons, Dalton & Wade, comes from characters in the classic Western movie “Road House.”
“The premise for the whole restaurant was to create a place where these two very different characters would want to go if they got together to have a drink,” says Paul Abdo, a founding partner of Dalton & Wade. The building where the commons are housed is the only wood building built recently in Minneapolis and stands out in the warehouse district.

Fall is the fading of summer where the suntan fades and the air starts to smell a little different, a little more earthy. This drink is a twist on a drink that is typically thought of for summer, i.e a daiquiri. Like the days that get shorter and the dark of night gets longer, this drink is a little darker and a little earthy like fall.
