Wine is the most popular alcoholic beverage that is served with a group banquet dinner. It is wise to plan on ½ bottle of wine per person.
When hosting an outdoor event in the summer time, it is best to plan on serving more white wine than red. Most people will drink white wine as a thirst quencher. A good rule of thumb would be to request 2 red bottles and 8 white bottles of wine for every 10 ordered.
If you would like to have a wine low in alcohol request a German Riesling. Al Satian Rieslings are a little bit higher and California Rieslings have the highest alcohol content.
When adding a dance floor to your event, plan on 10’ square feet per couple.

Thank you to everyone who stopped by our booth at the MN Monthly Food & Wine Experience! It is such a great event filled with delicious food and beverages.

Looking for new inspiration for your meeting or event? Have you noticed attendees zoning out, starting to slump in their chairs or getting antsy? Here is an idea for you….move! A brief exercise break works great to get attendees energized and engaged again.
The exercise does not need to be an hour long class. It can be as simple as chair yoga stretches or something fun, like a short outdoor scavenger hunt. These mini exercises can be led by a professional or a volunteer from the group.
Finding an easy, quick activity will boost morale, productivity, attendees will be happier, motivated and more involved. So many benefits! Remember to keep in mind any physical limitations of the group. The Ruttger’s staff is here to help in your planning down to the smallest details.
Benjamin Franklin once said, “ You don’t stop playing because you grow old, you grow old because you stop playing.”

We know many of you have talked to Tami when booking your stay with Ruttger’s Bay Lake Lodge. It is always so nice to put a face with a name and get to know that person behind the phone, so….meet Tami Price! Tami is starting her 18th year with us and her knowledge of the resort is vast as she was born and raised right here in the area. Just like Ruttger’s Bay Lake Lodge is family owned and operated, Tami has that same belief and strong family bond. She has been married for 35 years to Randy, who also works at Ruttger’s! Even Tami’s daughter was an employee when she was 14 to age 21. Pretty awesome! We asked Tami some questions about her and about the resort…make sure to see the last question and find out the best time of year to visit us.
