Ely firm delivers booze to the ice houses

Behold, the business possibilities of booze in Minnesota!

An Ely man has started a new business — delivering booze to ice houses on the lakes around Ely, the Duluth News Tribune reports.

Safe Ride, which normally runs people around town for $5, has added the liquor-delivery service after figuring out a way to keep the alcohol from ending up in the hands of minors.

If you’re fishing on Miners Lake or Shagawa Lake, libation is $5 away.

“Please fish responsibly,” the company advises on its Facebook page.

This will do until this becomes a reality.

    I’m surprised no one thought of this earlier. While I have never participated in ice fishing, my impression is that catching fish is largely an afterthought.
