For your music enjoyment Spalding House will be featuring Kings Ransom live from 4:30pm to 8:30pm in concert. We're confident our cycling friends from Iowa (and all over the Midwest and Canada) will love their axe grinding sound.
Also, at 6:30pm the Spalding House will be featuring a meat raffle to benefit the Crosby Fire Department. Sweet-Sweet!
You also have the ability to lodge overnight right at the Spalding House above the brew pub. Hostel style and European in flare, phone up the Spalding House at 218-546-6060 to reserve your inn room.
