Spring Cookout!

The weather is too nice to not celebrate, so on Sunday, April 13 we’ll be having our first spring cookout! We’ll be grilling both meats and veggies with plenty of sides, plus beer and our very special “Mia’s Hard Lemonade”. We’ll be starting up around 2pm and going until whenever. All are welcome, so feel free to tell your friends. We look forward to seeing you there!
