    What better way to spend a Friday night, then to  picnic with your Nordic buddies while engaging in a  serious game of croquet, bean bag toss, or life-size Jenga. If these games aren't up your alley, you can bring your own.

    Raised Grain is hosting a beer garden at Minooka Park on Sunset Drive in Waukesha. Dinking beer is optional, but having fun is strongly encouraged. They do offer some food choices, however, you can bring your own picnic dinner. For more information on Minooka Park, please look at the following website:
