Summertime dreaming...

Aug 1 Cab Cab-3.jpg

Have we got some news for you...

As we sit in this Chicagoland snow globe, we hope you are huddled in front of your fireplace drinking a hot-toddy and dreaming of summer. Amid your thoughts of green grass and warm summer sun, know that the Arranmore team is hard a work (most likely also sitting in front of their fireplace drinking...but nonetheless) they are working hard at creating an incredible 2018 season for you.

We've got some things we can tell you- and some we can't. Yet.
But, what we CAN tell you....

First, Polo is going BYOB! 

Yup. Time to ramp up those creative juices for your summer tailgating experience. We had so many fantastic tailgaters from last season- we wanted to give you more reason to experience polo! 

Second, we're combining two things we love into one event. Polo + Music

Introducing: Chicago Polo ChukkerJam. We're doing what we do well- and at the same time! 

Third, Sunset Yoga (plus Wine + Cheese) is coming back. 
Every. Month. 
June. July. August. September. 

BAM!!!! 

So, while you're getting cozy, do a little dreaming about the lazy days of summer. We can't wait to see you out at the farm. Stay tuned for more details!
Cheers!

Happy 100th Birthday Farmhouse!

Yup. You read that right. The farmhouse (aka Harvey Farmhouse) is turning 100 years old this year. Stay tuned for another mini-blog about the Harvey sisters- but for now, we'd like to honor the farmhouse that keeps watch at Arranmore. Built in 1917, and moved to Arranmore in 1999, the farmhouse is a reflection of who we are. 

We've been honored to host parties, corporate gatherings, brides as they get ready for their big day, cocktail parties, private dinners and our team has spent many hours of preparation here as we schedule for the events of the season. 

So here's the Farmhouse shout-out! Happy Birthday! And...thank you for allowing us to be included in your history.

Tailgating. Yup. 

Check out the inspiring get-up from Jaime Adams from Wine Down Wednesday last week! She had people all around saying things like "oh, yeah--we're going shopping! You just wait!" 

Tailgating at Arranmore. It can be as chill or as creative as you want to be. 

This creation inspired a "Tailgating Contest" which will be held every WWW (Wine Down Wednesday) for complimentary tickets to Arranmore events. So join us- only $20 per car load!

We want to see you bring it! 

Marley. Yeah, he's kind of a Big Deal.

You might have seen Marley in the barns at Arranmore. He is such a goof- he totally mugged for the camera, while head butting us and creating lots of laughter.

This moment was caught by Bari Baskin of Time Stops Photography as we took a moment to hang out with the horses, while capturing the beauty of Arranmore.

Bari entered this shot into the 2017 Shoot and Share Photo Contest.  332,768 photos were submitted by 150,000 photographers around the world. Over 60 million votes were cast over 3 weeks. Marley’s photo made it through 11 elimination rounds, surviving through the 12th and Final Round! He placed in the top 4% of all photos submitted and the top 3% of all photos in the Pets/Animals category. 

And, his final placement was 312 out of 10,102!

So- make sure you tell him "congrats" over the summer.
