To keep the momentum going this weekend, we have invited musicians Tony Capella and Kurt Houff of Montana Wildaxe and Greg Hudson to play in the lounge this Friday night from 7-11pm. Come early to take advantage of our Happy Hour specials from 4-7 pm or the Turf and Free Surf dinner special that runs all evening in our dining room.

Several group parties have requested these spaces for after work happy hours, team building, celebratory dinners, etc. We are so grateful to be able to accommodate these groups and offer them various options to fit their needs. Our hospitality team has been busy showing the spaces to guests looking to host bridal showers, reunions, and holiday parties this fall and winter.
