Remembering Bobby Vee

Tuesday, October 18

Remembering Bobby Vee

We’ll begin with an included buffet lunch at the Coyote Moon Grille and then head for the St. Cloud Paramount Theatre for Remembering Bobby Vee. The Killer Vees, featuring Jeff, Tommy, Matt, and Bennett Vee, reunite to honor their father, uncle, grandfather, mentor and bandleader, Bobby Vee. The show features video and stories from Bobby’s career along with all the hits. Bobby Vee’s career started in Moorhead, MN on February 3, 1959, when his group The Shadows volunteered to help fill in after learning about the plane crash that took the lives of Buddy Holly, Ritchie Valens and the Big Bopper. And so began an international career that spanned 52 years and saw Bobby tour the world and land 38 songs in the Hot 100.

Sausage, Beer, Pizza Buffet & Lights Tour

Thursday, December 1

Sausage, Beer, Pizza Buffet and Lights TourWe’ve missed this tour the past two years, and I’ve had lots of requests to bring it back! This tour has it all… one of the best meat markets in the state, the #1 ranked MN brewery (WCCO-TV), a pizza buffet, and a very popular light display… all in one tour… and just in time for Christmas! We’ll begin with casual shopping at Schmidt’s Meat Market in Nicollet. (I really suggest that you bring coolers with your name clearly marked on them.) After you’ve had time to buy those Christmas party meats, we’ll head to Schell’s Brewery in New Ulm for a tour and tasting of their fine products. Not a beer drinker? They also make 1919 root beer. By now we’re hungry, so we’re off to the Pizza Ranch for an included late afternoon pizza buffet. (They’re even opening their buffet early just for us.) We’ll end our day with the beautiful Kiwanis Holiday Lights in Mankato.
