Dick and Jean Leinenkugel will lead a ceremonial ride on the new section of bicycle trail, return to the store and we will have an all Leinenkugel beer tasting and brat fry. Tickets are $25 and include the ride, brat fry and one chance for the canoe. Last year over 150 people enjoyed the afternoon of great beer, brats and camaraderie with other avid bikers. Check out the WLT web site for more information.
August 11th, 4 PM Sarah Lauer in the Amphitheater after the Ride with Leinie
Sarah Lauer is a Marquette University student from Milwaukee, Wisconsin. She also splits her time in the north woods with her family in Land O’Lakes on Black Oak Lake. Sarah has been playing the guitar and singing since 6th grade and starting performing shows after high school. Playing “coffee-house” type music, she covers artists such as Shawn Colvin, Sheryl Crow, Van Morrison, Bob Dylan and more. Guitar is her instrument of choice but just recently started playing banjo and the harmonica. Come listen as she plays...
Sarah is playing for tips, and Marquette is not a cheap date. Bring your appetite and grab a chair. And bring a few bucks to put into her guitar case! She is a classy artist anxious to be heard in the north woods. This is a great opportunity to have a meal and unwind after the Ride with Leinie.
Hope to see you at some of our events. Thanks for including the Forest Lake Country Store in your entertainment plans!
