HOLIDAY WINE SALE!

We have been able to get a great deal from Rockbrook Cellars.  These California wines are styled as “European Table Wines.”  They are all very drinkable and are good both as sipping wines and as dinner wines.  Our favorites are the Cabernet, Pinot Noir and Pinot Grigio-these three are available for $10 a bottle, or two for $15 or $70 a case-full or mixed.  The sale is while supplies last.  And, last but not least–try before you buy!

join us Friday for the Festival of Lights Parade.  We will be serving cocoa and mulled wine as well as our English-style Fish and Chips and Grilled Cod with Veggies dinners.
