The Event - O -Rama Edition
Bonjour, Charles here…
I understand you Americans have a hyphenated suffix of sorts that expresses an act, event, situation, or place that is remarkable, extraordinary, or extreme. So I believe Fromage- O-Rama is the correct use of the suffix to describe Charles E. Fromage during the next few weeks. Cancel that dental appointment, hire someone to watch whoever it is you usually watch, and tell those committees you are taking a hiatus. You will want to be on West Vliet Street for the events mentioned in this week’s Slice-O-Rama.
Currently on Tap
Enjoy a flight of these outstanding, local beers for $10.00. Of course, we also have a nice selection of locally produced canned beers and Lost Valley Ciders.

So, I must ask! If you could please use this Link and go to the Out And About section, you will see a number of categories. Please vote for us under Best New Bar, Most Romantic Bar, Best Wine List, Best Sandwich, Best Place to Eat Alone, Best Patio, Best Chef, and Best of Bar Food.
