See You At The Fair!

Dear loyal Wishing Tree families,

The Wishing Tree will be closed from Saturday, Aug. 12 and reopen Friday, Sept. 8, and we want you to know what it’s all about. As many of you know, we have a career background in the fair and event food service industry. We were honored to be selected by the Minnesota State Fair to create and open the newest full-scale restaurant and bar at The Great Minnesota Get-Together.

All in the spirit of the good fun and great food, Bryan, Jennie and the crew will open @TheHideawaySpeakeasy in the Upper Grandstand’s brand new Veranda shopping and dining area. The Hideaway’s theme brings to life the 1920s prohibition-era speakeasy with a menu featuring shareables, fresh sandwiches, breakfast paninis, craft beer and Minnesota wine.

While we finalize preparations for the grand opening of The Hideaway, you’ll all be preparing for back-to-school and soaking up the last slices of summer. With everyone’s plates being so full, we’ve made the decision for this first State Fair in operation at The Hideaway, that we will close The Wishing Tree on Aug. 12 and reopen Sept. 8.

As always, the words “thank you” aren’t enough to express how grateful we are for your patronage, enthusiasm and support. We hope you’ll make time to stop and see us and the entire Wishing Tree crew at @TheHideawaySpeakeasy. We can’t wait to see you all back again in September! Until then, “like” us @TheHideawaySpeakeasy for updates and we’ll see you at the State Fair!


Jennie, Bryan and the entire Wishing Tree Team
