Tuesday Afternoons. Our late afternoons on Tuesdays are spent with our alcohol rep, George, from Major Brands.  He is a hoot, so come join us on the patio for fun and quiz George on any new wines or beverages that are coming out soon. Very casual and very fun.  Sometimes it is in the kitchen and we try new liquids.  He loves having me buy new items so he can win a trip or some other nonsense.  Vodkas are my favorite, but then again he brings me some pretty good scotch, oh and then there are the wines…goes on and on.  Again, no charge.
