Girls Gone North at Bluefin Bay


Published:

Fall is one of the best times to travel to Northern Minnesota, and right before the holidays is a great time to slip in a girls’ weekend. Want the fun and the relaxation (and the wine!) without all the planning? Then sign up yourself and your girlfriends, sisters, and moms for Bluefin Bay’s Girls Gone North weekend.

Girls Gone NorthRunning Nov. 11-13 at the lakeside resort near Lutsen/Tofte, Girls Gone North features everything we ladies love. The night you arrive, enjoy happy hour and live music to accompany some girl talk. The next day, wake up with a treatment at the Waves of Superior Spa or take a yoga class (good for students of all levels).

Over lunch, enjoy a guided hike to Cascade Falls and/or partake in a hands-on skin care workshop. Then don’t miss the fashion show and workshop presented by our own Minnesota Monthly Style Editor Katie Dohman. An expert on fashion for all body types and budgets, Katie will show you how to update your current look.

“You’ll get a peek at some of the cutest winter fashion,” Dohman says. “Fashion and function are not always mutually exclusive. Just because you have to bundle up doesn’t mean you can’t look polished and put together. I’ll be talking about how to layer cute pieces together, plus what coats will keep you warm and flatter different body types. It’ll be a relaxed, fun and chic atmosphere where you’ll pick up style editor tips and tricks—plus kick back with girlfriends. I can’t wait!”

And there’s no better way to end an evening than with a wine tasting, led by a wine expert, no less. Minnesota Monthly’s Dara Moskowitz Grumdahl (author of Drink This: Wine Made Simple) will lead a globe-trotting tasting of Syrah/Shiraz.

Before you leave on Sunday to head back to the real world, take in one more treatment at the spa. Go on, get that massage. You deserve it!

Special offer: Stay two nights Nov. 11-13, 2011 at Bluefin Bay or Surfside Resorts, and receive a 25 percent discount; or stay three nights for the price of two.
