The name of Minneapolis’ new whiskey commons, Dalton & Wade, comes from characters in the classic Western movie “Road House.” 

“The premise for the whole restaurant was to create a place where these two very different characters would want to go if they got together to have a drink,” says Paul Abdo, a founding partner of Dalton & Wade. The building where the commons are housed is the only wood building built recently in Minneapolis and stands out in the warehouse district. 

Inside the warm and comfortable space, guests will find a selection of whiskeys that numbers in the 200s. First-rate bartenders can create customized menus for events, or supply whiskey or tequila tasting menus with food pairings. “The food is the kind that’s served outside of cities—once you’ve passed the city limits by about 25 miles,” says Abdo. “We have a protein-heavy menu: ribs, brisket, chicken and pork chops served with fresh vegetables.” Areas like the bar, private dining room, lounge and restaurant can be rented out for groups of up to 140.

Spending time on, in or near the shores of a clear, clean lake is a beloved part of life in Minnesota.  A lake turns an ordinary business trip into a retreat. That’s why so many planners look for meeting and conventions locations on the water.

But when the meetings, breakout sessions and eating are done, and your team races to the water, what are some fun, out-of-the-ordinary teambuilding ideas? Here are a few of our favorites.
