Mark your calendar and call up the girlfriends, ladies! Elkader is the hot spot to be on Saturday, March 9th. The Elkader Chamber of Commerce has a fantastic day filled with shopping, food, and beverages planned for their annual Ladies Day Out.
Ladies Day Out is a shopping extravaganza with sales, workshops, presentations, tasty food, and fun for all. Kick the day off with a freshly-ground cup of coffee and sweet treat from Treats on Bridge Street. Or take the coffee to go and grab a fresh homemade donut from Pedretti’s Bakery. Trust us, their donuts and rolls are heaven on Earth.
Just across the street, you'll find Turkey River Mall, where there are three full floors of shopping. They have stores offering everything from antiques and home décor to clothing, jewelry, and more. While you're there, we really recommend checking out Bridge Street Boutique & Gift and The Copper Frog – both shops have unique, one-of-kind items.
While you're at it, how about treating yourself to a manicure, pedicure, or massage? Call ahead and set a time to be pampered by the cosmologist at JEM Salon & Spa.
Hungry? Grab lunch! Whether you prefer American, Irish, or Italian, there are lots of options to chose from. If you haven't been, you have to try Johnson’s Restaurant, Fennellys’ Irish Pub and Restaurant, Elkader Pizzeria, or Drew’s Bar & Grille.
But that's not all—Ladies Day Out is followed by the Elkader Fire Department's Fireman Dance from 8:00 pm - 12:00 am at Drew's Bar & Grille. It's the perfect place for date night! Sit back, sip on an adult beverage, and listen to live music by Lonesome Road.
What a fun day you'll have in Elkader!
