We’re so excited to help you put your winter blues on the rocks at AntiFreeze!

This outdoor cocktail party is for those of us just crazy enough to enjoy it. You are one of the lucky 120 people who purchased an advance “Bundle Up” ticket. We wanted to reach out and let you know what to expect when you arrive.


Special advance “Bundle Up” tickets are available now!.  Just click here!  You’l l get a special Anti-Freeze commemmorative coffee mug, a trip through the mac&cheese bar, a cocktail and an ice luge shot for $15.  That’s a $25 value!  All items are available a la carte as well.


We will be serving two hot cocktails out on the patio. We’ll have our Iowish Coffee which is hot coffee with Cody Road Bourbon and Iowish Cream Liqueur. We’ll also have Cody’s Spiced Lemonade which is made with Cody Road Rye, Lemonade and rich winter spices like cinnamon, nutmeg, clove and vanilla.

Right next to that is the ice luge. We will have “antifreeze” and “motor oil” for you to choose from on the shot. Antifreeze is our Big Peach Liqueur with a green fruit drink. Motor oil is our Iowa Coffee Company Liqueur with chocolate. Each time you try the ice luge, you’ll get a chance to play “quarter corn hole” for a shot at a prize. Bounce a quarter into the middle of our mini cornhole game and win a ticket for $2 off your next cocktail for the day.


Yes this is an outdoor party, but we will have the indoor bar fully staffed and ready to make any of our 30 showcase cocktails for you. You’re encouraged to come back outside and enjoy your drinks there.


Faithful Pilot will be keeping you belly warm with a delicious mac & cheese bar. You fill your bowl with super cheesy mac and cheese and then head down the line to top it off with a wide array of delicious toppings like bacon, bacon or even bacon! (Don’t worry, there will be other toppings) There will also be S’mores stations and fire pits for you to roast a few marshmallows and make your own S’mores free of charge.


This party is all about beating the cold.  So we’ll be partying to the greatest beach and reggae tunes we can find.  Jimmy Buffett’s got nothing on us!
