every Tuesday night is trivia and half price burgers at Chester's own
"living room" aka the Fo'c'sle Pub. Exercise that lump of knowledge and
meet some new friends.
Santa Claus at the shopping mall was very surprised when a young lady
walked up and sat on his lap. Perplexed, he asked 'What would you like

Merry Christmas to all of you from all of us.
