This is an unfortunate story rather than a favorite…. The company my wife works for purchased her a romantic getaway weekend at Cragun’s. We were very excited for that weekend to arrive. On the way up to the resort, my wife buys a coffee at a Holiday gas station and adds a flavor to it. Seems that the flavor she picked turned out to be hazelnut rather than choc mocha. Well I happen to be allergic to hazelnut flavored coffee. Needless to say I did spend the entire weekend in bed, but with a rash that covered my entire body and was eating the Benadryl tablets from the gift shop like candy. After the itchy two days spent in the room we headed back to Shakopee for a visit with a doctor at the hospital for a shot of something stronger. A week later I was all cleared up. So much for a romantic weekend getaway. We joke now about it, but at the time it was no fun.
Just for the record, my wife Debbie did not try to poison me….Since then we have returned to Cragun’s and we just love the place and the very friendly staff. Thanks goes out to Brady in the dining facility. He was fabulous in having our romantic dinner delivered to the room rather than walking my red rash body down to the dining room. Anyway that’s my story.
