Maybe I’ve led a sheltered life, but when I heard and read that Kristi Noem was criticizing Matt Varilek for drinking Jagermeister from an ice luge (it was part of Corndog-gate), I didn’t really know what she was talking about.
Then, Friday, I was fortunate enough to attend the Avera Foundation’s Splash of Spirits fundraiser here in Mitchell. I was walking through the lobby of the Highland Conference Center when what to my wondering eyes should appear but a real, live ice luge (see photo below that I snapped with my phone). At Splash of Spirits, the luge was being used to pour liquor. There were two slots in the back of the huge ice block, and the liquor poured down a couple of ice chutes into a waiting glass below.
We can only hope there will be an ice luge at Matt Varilek’s election watch party tomorrow night in Sioux Falls. I’ll tell our photographer to be on the lookout for it.
