6th Meridian Hops presents a new celebration of good food, good drink and good times: The Swinged Cat Aliment & Ale Fest
What is a Swinged Cat?
In 1890, South Dakota was in the midst of a drought. Mellette was doing everything in his power to keep settlers from leaving the state. On a trip to Chicago for aid, Mellette was met by Moses P. Handy, a friend and newspaperman. Handy asked Mellette, “Well, governor, how is South Dakota?”
Mellette replied, “Oh, South Dakota is a swinged cat, better than she looks.”
And 'swinged" was a way of saying singed or burnt.
21 or older for the Fest, tickets $30
