Tis the season of the ugly sweater!

This past  Monday we hosted our first annual Member's Ugly Sweater Party at The Grill. We had live music, free appetizers and sandwiches from the new Grill menu, and LOTS of ugly sweaters! I don't think there is anything more fun than seeing grown men with embellished sweater vests on! (Chris Thomson I am talking about you here, that sparkling sweater vest was awesome! Please see photo HERE)

We had a contest for the ugliest sweater on a male and female and it was tough choosing a winner. Congrats to Dave Reifschneider and Bonnie Warren who won prizes just as ugly as their sweaters. Personally I was voting for Lowell Warren (see photo below)

Those are giant yarn skiers and his wife brought this sweater back all the way from California! If I could find a replica my dad would be getting one of those bad boys for Christmas this year.

Thanks to all the member's who came out to The Grill and got dressed in their ugliest attire! We had a blast decorating for the party and hope you enjoyed getting together during the holiday season. We plan on having plenty more member get-togethers so stay tuned.....

Thanks to Spilker's Pineridge Tree Farm!

The next time you are out to The Lodge you will notice three beautiful pine trees on either side of our grand entry doors. Don and Linda Spilker, from Spilker's Pineridge Tree Farm, were kind enough to donate these trees to us to help decorate for the holiday season! If you are still looking for the perfect Christmas tree visit the Spilker's on 1201 Fletcher Avenue just 1 mile north of 14th and Superior!

You can also contact them at (402)477-0387 or!

Thanks again Don and Linda, The trees are absolutely magnificent!

Pancakes, Elves, Cookies and Santa!

Wilderness Ridge was overflowing with Christmas cheer during Breakfast with Santa this past Saturday. Santa Clause was in the house taking wishes, we had two merry elves running around The Lodge and the spirit of Christmas was everywhere you turned. What a wonderful way to start off December!

We had a pancake buffet complete with sausage links a lots of assorted donuts. Each table was set up with coloring pages, crayons, stickers and wish list for the children to fill out and place in Santa's mailbox. I had such a great time asking all the kids what they were asking for this Christmas and if they thought they had been bad of good this year.

CLICK HERE to see more photos from the day. If you would like to have any of the photos sent to you please Email Brandi with the photo number or numbers. We had so much fun putting on this event and hope you enjoyed your morning as much as we did!!

Chico's brings fashion to The Lodge.

This past Wednesday The Lodge hosted a ladies tea and fashion show by Chico's and Naturally Yours Salon and Spa. We had a wonderful turnout with just under 100 ladies. It was such a fun holiday atmosphere and a great start to the month of Decemeber. All the ladies were dressed to impress and The Lodge was decked out in seasonal reds and greens.

Below are just a few photos from Ladies Tea. To check out more CLICK HERE!
