On Saturday, June 8, Minnesota Cider Guild will be hosting the 6th annual Minnesota Cider Fest at St. Paul's Como Lakeside Pavilion. In addition to samplings of 100 different ciders from more than 30 Minnesota, national and international cideries, the Minnesota Cider Fest will offer cider education sessions and food from Spring Café and Red River Kitchen

“This is a great fest to start summer, and it gives both cider fans and people new to cider a wonderful setting to celebrate the beverage and discover its many styles,” says Nate Watters, president of the Minnesota Cider Guild and owner of Keepsake Cidery in Dundas, Minnesota. “We are excited to showcase what Minnesota cider makers have to offer and to create new cider fans within our evolving category.”

Minnesota Cider Fest will be the cap on Minnesota Cider Week, June 3-8. Other events of the week include food and cider pairings, special cider releases and more. Minnesota Cider Fest runs from 2-5 p.m., with first taste access of special releases from 1-2 p.m. Tickets are available online for $50 or $60 for the first taste access. If still available, tickets will be sold for $70 at the door for early entry or $60 for general admission. Tickets for designated drivers are $10. All attendees, including designated drivers, must be 21 years or older. Tickets include unlimited cider samples and a souvenir tasting glass.

After several months of renovations, the DoubleTree by Hilton Philadelphia-Valley Forge is now open as the Alloy – King of Prussia, a DoubleTree by Hilton.

 

After almost 20 years of vacancy, the Cook County Hospital in Chicago will be put to use once again. A $150 million adaptive reuse project restored the historic, 106-year-old hospital, which has become a combined Hyatt Place and Hyatt House hotel, as well as medical offices, a museum, a food hall and more. While the opening is multi-phased, the hotels are scheduled to open in late July.  

 

Doctors, nurses, grocery store employees and more were essential to sustaining the continued stay-at-home orders that helped fight the spread of COVID-19. Such workers put their health at risk for the benefit of society, and Nakoma Resort and the Lost Sierra Chamber of Commerce want to recognize them for their efforts through the “Send Your Heroes” campaign.
