Mommy Juice: Momscow Mule Tour!

Moms! We are offering another Mommy Juice Tour!

Join us in downtown Casper for a night of drinks featuring Moscow Mules and Moscow Mule inspired drinks. Our “Momscow Mule” Tour will feature sips and eats from some of our favorite local places including Raccas Pizzeria NapolentanaGaslight Social, and Frontier Brewing Company and Taproom. Registration is required.

                       

As always, transportation from Casper Executive Car and Limo will be provided for drop offs in Casper, Mills and Evansville. It’s the perfect way to spend time with old and new friends after the hustle and bustle of Halloween. (If you have a college sports fan in your life, have them catch the University of Wyoming vs Colorado State game at Frontier Brewing Company and Taproom at 5:00PM and let them know you will join them close to halftime! They can have a ride home at the end of the night, too, for an extra $8.) We call this a Mommy Juice Tour in honor of our series, but you don’t have to be a mommy to participate!

                                            

Your night will include great company, Moscow Mules and mule inspired drinks; dinner featuring pizza, bread, and salad; a ranking card to provide feedback on your drinks; entry to a copper cup prize drawing; and transportation (within the Casper, Mills and Evansville area)! Have your ride drop you off at Raccas Pizzeria Napolentana (430 S Ash St, Casper, WY 82601). We will take you home at the end of the night. You must be 21 years old to join us.

We had an awesome turnout and an amazing time on our Mommy Juice Margarita Tour and our Mommy Juice: Hang at the Hangar with Mystic Mountain Tour. Like last time, spaces are limited and your spot is not confirmed until your registration form is complete and payment arrangements have been made. No group registrations will be accepted.
