The calm of the rustic dining room and chaos of the kitchen. Currently seeking a new dishwasher and maitre d… the last one quit. So to speak… it’s a long story, but not for here. Look for the book in a few years when I’ve had time to mull it over (credit for these last two great shots to our good buddy and hopefully future neighbor, Chuck. Let me know if you want your full name in the credit… ).
Lots of changes in store for the new year, but fear not, friends… supper club shall continue! Hometown pals- let me know if I’ve overlooked you in the guest list (lots of folks I’m sure- still perfecting that ever-evolving perfect contact list) and I’ll make sure you’re invited to the next one. Thank you all for your company and support thus far- looking forward to new and better things to come! Much love and happy holidaze!
