7 Things to Do as Temperatures Drop
Rent an Igloo at Stable Craft
It’s always fun to be outside at Stable Craft Brewing. You can play lawn games, pet the horses, enjoy a round of disc golf, and even toast s’mores around one of the firepits. Did you know that you can also warm up with your besties in a personal igloo? The igloos shelter you from the elements but are transparent and offer incredible views of stars or falling snow. Perfect for special occasions or just sharing yummy craft beer and cider, each igloo is heated and seats up to eight people. They include a table for food and drink as well as panels to adjust airflow. The igloo experience lasts for an hour and 45 minutes and includes a private server. You’ll need to make reservations ahead of time. Also, consider making a night (or weekend) out of it by staying overnight in one of Stable Craft’s cozy guest suites.
Enjoy Wine and Views at Barren Ridge Vineyards
Savor a glass of wine by the tasting room fire at Barren Ridge. If the weather allows, take your wine outside to the patio that overlooks the vineyards and captures a distant view of the mountains. Barren Ridge has a rotating menu of wines, including chardonnay, rosé, cabernet franc, and a delicious apple wine made with Stayman and Fuji apples. This is a nod to Barren Ridge’s past as an apple orchard. Plan to listen to live music on Saturdays and Sundays. Reservations are always recommended. Visitors can also reserve spaces on vineyard walks and order personalized wine and cheese pairings.
