We were going to have our annual Saint Joseph's Day Free Buffet today, but we'll have to postpone it until June, or so...

We wont be cancelling it, we'll just have it a little later this year.

Day 10...I think

Business was better today than yesterday.

Last night we had 2 carry-out orders.

Today was much better.

Today I am dumbstruck at the generosity of people.

Strangers, neighbors and regulars alike.

Thank you

We'll rally for the weekend, and have some Specials!

Stay tuned.
