This past Thursday the scene at Uncle John’s Cider Mill of St. Johns was one to behold. The famous mill hosted their Girl’s Night Out event as a way to gather women in the area for a good time and pull them away from the stresses of everyday life. The evening of leisure was filled with a variety of activates, with everything from shopping opportunities to food and drink tastings. While the event was intended for women, fathers and families were also invited to join in on the festivities. In addition to vendors, food and drinks – guests were also greeted with live music.
The event served as a great display of local commerce. Vendors throughout mid-Michigan traveled to be sponsored participants; bringing along items for purchase, such as apparel and jewelry from Pretty Hunter and comfort fashions from LulaRoe. In addition, food trucks were on hand to meet the needs of ladies looking for a bite to eat. BBQ from Chuckie D’s and Uncle John’s Hard Cider made for a delicious pairing. This addition of food vendors at the mill is a reflection of the brand’s ongoing efforts to bring mobile eateries to their location on a more regular basis. Earlier this season Uncle John’s started to promote what they like call “Food Truck Fridays” with the help of local food truck favorites like Daddy’s Little Girl and Pie Hole Pizza.
With a successful attendance record it comes as no surprise that the mill intends to host more events, like this, in the years to come. As the mill continues to try new things, it’s apparent their ingenuity has paid off, having just recently been named one of the Top 10 hard cider tasting room destinations in the country by USA Today. Uncle John’s Cider Mill will soon be closing for the season, in Mid-November, so if you’ve still yet to visit we encourage you not to hesitate much longer.
