Bring Back the Fun in 2021

Lights have been strung.  Wreaths are hung.  Trees will soon be decorated with bows and baubles. The holiday Season of Lights is just around the corner. 

You’ve no doubt been thinking about getting together with colleagues, friends or loved ones. Maybe this is your year to host a get-together or gathering. Allow us to lighten your load.

We’ve compiled a master list of neighborhood restaurants, eateries and hangouts and have included capacity information, sample menu items, fan favorites, catering details and contact information.  We hope this list is helpful as you begin to solidify your holiday plans.

In the meantime, we want to help you bring back the fun in 2021.
