we made it through, but there's still turkey in the fridge. And
shortbread, lots of shortbread.The wine seems to have evaporated. Funny,
As the New Year approaches, it's time to move your
little molasses men off the doorstep into the basement so they will be
fresh gingerbreads for next year.
This Week in Chester
New Year's celebrations are rampant. The Fo'c'sle Pub
has seating at 6pm and 8pm for their New Year's Eve meal. They will
feature the regular menu along with a special meadow and marine
offering. There is a baked brie appetizer and two special desserts,
pecan or key lime tart. All items are à la carte and reservations are
required. The George Carter Jr Trio hits the stage at 9 pm and there is
no need for a reservation to dance the night away.
New Year's Day levées abound. Hit them all. The Legion is the first out of the gate at 11am followed up the stretch by the Playhouse and the Fo'c'sle Pub at noon. The Yacht Club
doesn't hit their stride until 1 pm, so plan your attendance
accordingly. Levées are serious business here in the Hamlet and we don't
like to miss out on any of it. Did someone say free drinks?
The Village Emporium
on Pleasant Street re-enters the platform of commerce Thursday, January
2nd. Post Boxing day sales await you and your credit card.
Looking ahead to the New Year, there are plenty of options to keep you out of trouble. The
Chester Art Centre kicks off the season with rug hooking classes,
acrylic painting classes, a class on phone and tablet photography that
are face book worthy and ohh so much more. Check out their website and sign up.
