Fall at the Moondance

Wednesday, September 26th, 2012

It’s absolutely beautiful in Red Wing. The trees are beginning to turn and the temperture is perfect. If you can get away on a Wednesday or Thursday night, stay with us and enjoy our great mid-week rates. In addition, we can set you up for a wine tasting, bottle of wine, and gourmet wood fired pizzas served while you overlook a secluded vineyard. This could make for a great, quick get away.

What a beautiful day in the neighborhood. While these two folks play checkers on the porch our other guests, earlier in the day enjoyed breakfast at their private tables for two on our grand front porch. What was today’s menu? We served fresh fruit with vanilla yogurt, home made morning glory muffins, toasted herbed Italian bread with scrambled eggs and potatoes and asparagus with hollandaise sauce drizzled nicely over all. I think it’s nap time now.

Thank you to the Uffda Shop, a fine everything you need Scandanavian retailer in downtown Red Wing. They chose the Moondance Inn to host their holiday party. It was a great group of people. We served an extensive appetizer menu plus a dinner that featured a creamy chicken alfredo for the main course and a side blue broccoli. The dessert was Irish trifle.

If you can’t make it to Red Wing to visit the Uffda Shop google their catalog on line. They ship everywhere.

Thursday, June 2nd, 2011

At last, some sunny weather. I might have even sweated the other day.

Red Wing, MN. is offering a wide range of activities. Would a river cruise to view bald eagles be of interest? Perhaps your preference is a historic trolley tour. How many of you would like to see how Red Wing Shoes are made. A factory tour is available. Sipping local produced wine while eating a gourmet wood fired pizza is yours at Falconer Vineyards. How about live comedy with Tim Allen? This is but a few of the many activities to enjoy when visiting Red Wing this summer.
