It’s fast, convenient, and a portion of the modest service charge goes to support charitable organizations. There is no excuse now for missing a fabulous summer Sunday evening meeting the sweets.

How sweet will this evening be?

  • Sweet Cheeks Winery hosts our evening on their lovely terrace overlooking the lovely Briggs Hill Valley. They are featuring their superb Pinot Noir, Pinot Gris, and other fine wines.
  • Sweet Briar Farms will be offering sausage and filing sandwiches with pulled pork cooked at their farm.
  • Sweet Creek Foods is plating a selection of preserved foods, including a fine salad nicoise made with their succulent tuna.
  • Sweet Water Farm And Nursery–Oh, those vegetables, salads, and breads. This is the time of year when the veggies emerge from the fields and land on our plates in a matter of hours.
  • Sweet Life Patisserie–Is there a better end to a summer evening than strawberry shortcake and chocolate?

We’ve also lined up Ken Luker, a local guitarist who has shared stages with Steppenwolf, Eric Burdon, The Drifters, Ray Stephens, and the Coasters. You can learn more about Ken and hear samples of his music on his web site, kenluker.com.
