Happy Hour kitchen crew this week is Russ and Melanie Weinlein. They’re doing up Swedish meatballs and all the fixings. Stop down for a beverage or two or three and a bite to eat.  Next Wednesday we’ll have a ‘Cookie exchange’… details to follow.

New Year’s Eve – For anyone interested.. we’ll be opening the club on New Year’s Eve for a casual get together. Figure around 6 or 7. Once we have an idea of the number of people we’ll be ordering pizza and splitting the cost. Whoever feels like being behind the bar will serve drinks. Come hang out. Last year we had about 40 or so people show up. Chris Labatt Simon…

Special thanks to Mike Loporto for the great Christmas party – and under budget… Thanks Mike…
