Magical things are happening!

Happy 2013! Spicy and thrilling goodies are brewing around here. Our brand new Guest Services Manager, Erica Wall, our Sales and Event Coordinator, Christine Pirkle, and our Executive Chef, Taylor Harkness, have been stirring up ideas with Innkeeper Patricia with your fun in mind for 2013.
Would you like to be enchanted? Who wouldn't? Well, you are cordially invited to our Golden Knights Guild monthly dining club. The elite inaugural dinner will be held Friday, January 18th at 6:30 p.m. for a low cost of $49 per person. For next week's event, we are planning a truly mystical evening with your fellow dining enthusiasts at our castle in the country. Medieval attire is optional but heavily encouraged! Here is a sneak peak of what Chef Taylor has planned for the evening's themed fare: Lamb Chop Lollipop, Cioppino Flaming Seafood Stew, Fresh Sorbet, Stuffed Filet Mignon with Chive and Blue Cheese, and select wine pairing. There is no membership commitment for the first dinner, because we are certain you will be hooked! Our Golden Knights Guild Monthly Dining Club is a members-only club that will meet once per month for a divine culinary experience at unexpected locations ... perhaps al fresco in the park, a grand hall, even the Innkeeper's home estate. Executive Chef Taylor will present coursed and themed menus while sharing his culinary experiences with the guests via many avenues, including demonstrations, techniques, recipes and more. Guild membership fee is $100 per person, $175 per couple. Members who attend all 12 dinners will receive a voucher to be used toward an overnight stay at the Inn. Members will also receive a 10% discount card to be used on Goldmoor Dining's seasonal restaurant menus. It pays to be a member!
And listen to this. We have unveiled our Gold Key Passport savings for the month of January. This seriously is our largest savings ever. The passport includes four fabulous overnight stays in any of our 13 grand deluxe suites for $1000. Passports will be sold exclusively from January 1st through 31st. So hurry! Visit for restrictions and blackout dates.
Also in the news of "Yay," Free Tuesday is back! For the month of January, stay any three nights including a Tuesday, and the Tuesday is completely free. What a great idea for a last-minute getaway. Sip some hot chocolate or sparkly champagne by a crackling fire and admire the gorgeous view of the river and bluffs. Serene and tranquil.
"I love you" isn't so hard to say. We will help you with some ambiance, romance, wine, and a delectable dinner. Valentine's Day is just around the corner and we are offering a special Sweetheart's Dinner on Saturday, February 16th. Bring your special person and savor the moment.
We love the pretty, white and happy season of weddings around here, and it is approaching rapidly. If you are out and about locally this weekend, be sure to stop by the Grand River Center in Dubuque and see us at Bride Meets Wedding's table at A Grand Event Bridal Show. Our fair-weather weekends are quickly filling up with blushing brides and beaming grooms. Anticipation is exquisite!
Cheerio and Happy New Year!
