Can Can Wonderland is a boppin local artist-designed mini golf experience, complete with weekly variety shows, gourmet pizza flavors, and one-of-a-kind artisan cocktails. Our social team hosted a MNBloggerBash there: a Happy Hour in Wonderland theme, and we have the CEO/Firecracker/Ringleader Jennifer Pennington to talk about her success with this event, her inspiration for the brand, her childhood on a strawberry farm in Menomonie, Wisconsin, and pre-Can Can Wonderland names that did not make the cut. Join us down the rabbit hole in this whimsical podcast of merriment.
