Blu Ice Bar

On New Year's Day Steve, Cal, Lyndi and I went and checked out the Blu ice bar up the North Shore of Lake Superior at Grand Superior Lodge. The bar was carved by award winning ice carver Chris Swarbrick of Ice Occasions.

It was pretty cool...although I had been expecting a bit more ice. Only the bar area and one bench with a small table were actually ice. The parts that were ice were really neat though. And we took shots out of ice glasses!

It was definitely a unique experience. Worth seeing but difficult to hang out for any length of time...especially if you go on a cold day/night like we did! After we took our shots out of the ice glasses, we each ordered a drink and went outside to stand around a big fire they had going...then we left to go eat somewhere a little warmer!
