Beer, Accordion Music, & Crapo

Lake Coeur d’Alene Cruises will hold a special event with U.S. Senator Mike Crapo on Sept. 25, from 5:30-7 p.m. Supporters can meet and greet Crapo as they cruise Lake Coeur d’Alene, while international accordionist Anton Lazarov provides musical entertainment. There is a no-host bar. Tickets are $5, and the first 100 people to board the boat will receive a free glass of beer. The event has been dubbed SeptOberFest with the Senator. “This promises to be a fun time with one of Idaho’s favorite people,” said Jerry Jaeger, president and co-owner of Hagadone Hospitality/Hagadone Hospitality news release.

Question: What's a good Mormon boy like Crapo doing on a Hagadone Hospitality cruise boat, listening to accordion music? Is this the way you'd like to spend your evening?
