The historic Baker House, home of Wisconsin's very first Ice Bar, will once again be transforming its lakefront garden into a winter wonderland featuring their 3rd annual 'Fire & Ice Lounge'.
Festivities at the downtown hotel & restaurant will coincide with the U.S. National Snow Sculpting Competition in downtown and will officially begin Friday, February 1st at 4pm with the ringing of the mansion bell-tower and ceremonial first run of the ice luge. The brilliance of the 'Fire & Ice Lounge' at sunset becomes heavenly with the appearance of 'Ice Angels' serving fireside drinks in cups made entirely of ice. There will be an array of savory delights and hot toddy's available as well as the Baker House Signature Snow-cones topped with flavor infused SKYY vodkas. For those who prefer something a little less chilly, there will be warm 'Fancy Shanty's' with fur covered benches and fireplaces to sit by.
This year's icy extravaganza promises to be the most spectacular event yet, with a 10 foot custom carved Ice Bar, created by Guinness Book record holder and international award winning artist Max Zuleta of Art Below Zero who will be performing a dramatic ice sculpting show 4pm on Saturday, February 2nd. "This will be our best Ice Bar to date and with SKYY Vodka as a Premier Sponsor we are sure to have a magical time," says Bethany Souza, of HGTV's "Design To Sell" and Co-Founder and Executive Director of the Baker House.
The Baker House 'Fire & Ice Lounge' will be open weekends through February or until Mother Nature puts an end to the frosty fun. For more information and details: 262.248.4700 ~ BakerHouse1885.com
