The days of the Old West are behind us, but that doesn't mean we can't still pretend to be cowboys. Strap on your spurred boots and get ready for this Adventure: 45 minutes of shoot 'em up time at a gun range, followed by wine, beer, and liquor tastings on a vineyard.
We'll meet outside of the Hop Haus in downtown Chicago, where our sharp-shooting team will be on hand to usher us onto a premier coach bus to the Point Blank Shooting Range in Michigan (no licensed FOID card necessary). Regardless of whether we've held a gun before, the expert instructors will help guide us through safety training and the basics of holding a weapon, both in a class setting and one-on-one. We'll gear up with proper ear and eye protection, and choose from a variety of pistols, rifles, and AK-47s, before stepping up to an individual shooting booth and taking aim down the 75-foot-long range. At the end of the session, we'll take a look at each target and award the sharpest shooter with a prize. Bragging rights are also included—we'll get to take home our shooting target for wall decoration.
After satisfying our appetites for action, we'll satisfy our taste buds with catered eats at the range, including a full, hot meal of a homemade pulled pork sandwich, an Italian meatball sub, or vegetarian options. Then we'll mosey on over to the Round Barn Winery, an all-in-one hybrid winery, brewery, and distillery. Tasty libations await in the form of eight tastings of wine, beer, or liquor, which we'll sip out of a complimentary wine or pint glass that we'll get to take home. We'll toast to our intrepid, gunslingin' exploits and mingle with our fellow sharp shooters before we ride back home into the sunset.
