Start your evening with a little tasting of honey wine and cider at New Day Meadery tasting room. They sell glasses and flights of them both at this family-owned and operated establishment. For the rarity that mead is, and for the craftwork that goes into making it, $5 a glass is a great price! The flights come highly recommended so that you can try a number of different items, like the Breakfast Magpie, the Live Currant, and the Snap Dragon. There is also a small selection of food items – snacks and cheese and meat boards, and the tasting room closes early enough that you can catch a bite at a restaurant in Fountain Square after.

Check the calendar for special events, and consider taking your date to one of the Mead & Knead events which includes a special on a massage and glass of mead or cider. The New Day tasting room is open every day except Monday, until 9m.
