Every four years, the sport of Curling is catapulted into the international spotlight as part of the Winter Olympic Games. Many of us are left with the memory of fellow Minnesotans, John Shuster and his crew taking home gold at the PyeongChang Winter Olympics! Though many of us were left trying to understand the rules of curling, we still had the constant thought of “I could do that” as you watched at home. GetKnit has made it easy for you to fulfill your “Olympic Dreams” with this one-of-a-kind Get-Together featuring curling, craft beer (and wine!), and a hearty meal featuring local favorite, the Juicy Lucy.
Each evening will begin at Frogtown Curling Club in Saint Paul. Home to six curling sheets, this club will be all ours for each night full of curling and craft beer (or wine!)
After your GetKnit Gurus get you checked in, we will spend an hour getting to know each other as we enjoy an included pint of craft beer from local favorite Indeed Brewing Company or a glass of house wine. Our partners at Blue Door Pub will start the meal off right with an Appetizer Wing Bar that will pair perfectly with our first round of beverages. Our wing bar will feature three signature flavored wings – Sweet Chili Lime, Classic Buffalo, and Cajun Dry Rub. For dinner, we’ll be treated to a choice of one of their signature “Blucy” Juicy Lucy burgers, served with thick-cut Salt & Black Pepper chips and a house salad. Options will include “The Classic” which is stuffed with creamy Land O’Lakes White American, “The Original Blucy” which is stuffed with Blue Cheese crumbles and minced garlic, a House-made Black Bean Burger. A perfect meal to give us the energy we need for sliding stones and sweeping ice.
Following dinner, we will introduce our qualified instructors from Frogtown Curling Club and they will lead us in a classroom and on-ice curling lesson. After “mastering” this very unique sport, we will break up into teams of four, and enjoy 2+ hours of Curling practice and matches. During this time, we will crank up the music, enjoy some more drinks if you so choose, and have some awesome prizes for Curling contests throughout the night.
We invite you to “GetKnit” with us as we begin our run to the 2022 Beijing Winter Olympics through this one-of-a-kind experience! As you leave the Curling Club, you are sure to be full, happy, and feeling like a true Olympian.
