News from Chef Jim’s Kitchen
In September we are celebrating Labor Day with a picnic style menu served on the patio. The weekly patio picnics at lunchtime also continue every Wednesday through September. (The patio picnics will likely end for the year in October.)
With autumn coming, we will be switching to our fall and winter menus, so you will start to see changes as we head into next month.
Afternoon socials are every Friday this month, alternating between a wine and cheese happy hour and an ice cream social. It is all listed for you on the special events calendar, available outside the dining room.
This month’s special dining days include:
9/13 – Peanut Day
9/16 – Guacamole Day
9/19 – Cheeseburger Day
9/27 – Pancake Day

9/3 – Patriotic Day
9/10 – Western Day
9/17 – Wacky Sock Day
9/24 – Football Jersey Day
As always, please check the full activity calendar for all the great events
