With deadlines constantly looming and creative projects piling up, 605’s Alana Snyder decided to hit the pause button on the work calendar and explore Sioux Falls for a staycation.
The day kicked off with brunch at The Treasury at Hotel on Phillips with 605’s Taylor Hanson. From craft cocktails to the Chicken & Waffle, this stylish lounge in a former bank downtown is known for its innovative drinks and elevated small bites.
Brunch: The Treasury serves brunch items like the house-made Biscuits & Sausage Gravy on the weekends.
Winter Eats: Try The Treasury’s seasonal menu, which includes Kung Pao Cauliflower. More on the menu.
After a fun bite, Alana met husband and 605 co-worker John Snyder at Child’s Play Toys with their son, Owen. Chatting with owner Nancy Savage, the family perused the wide variety of toys and clothing, grabbing more than a few items “just because.”
Fact: Child’s Play Toys also has a location at Lake Lorraine.
Since the weather has been more than generous, Alana headed to meet the 605 crew at the heated patio at McNally’s Irish Pub. The team indulged with items like the popular Reuben and an Irish Coffee.
Did you Know? Guests can order curbside at McNally’s with menu items or take-home family-style meals during special occasions?
Wanting to make it a true staycation, Alana headed over to check in to the new Hyatt Place Sioux Falls – South to grab a room with a view and a bite (and wine) with Taylor before the Stampede game at the Denny Sanford PREMIER Center.
Patio at Hyatt Place: Overlook the water as you enjoy a beverage with a personal bonfire.
The event center was spaced out and had enough room between patrons for stretching out and enjoying a beverage and popcorn. Alana and Taylor sifted through merch and took a break at a lounge to catch up before heading back and ringing the bell at all of the hockey action.
Tip: Purchase a bell to participate in celebratory moments like scoring at the Stampede
Pandemic or not, staycations are a way to unwind, unplug, and recharge, all while taking advantage of what’s available year round that can be taken for granted.
