Weekdays during October

$10 per person

Includes signature wine glass, a complimentary red wine pour at each winery and a $5 donation to the American Red Cross. Great wine for a great cause— It doesn’t get better than that!

The bread pudding dessert at Side Door Saloon? Equally delicious and I took more than half home - figure it will be a great breakfast heated up with a cup of coffee!

If anyone is wondering about the portion size at Side Door Saloon for the lunch special ... let me show you ... and the brat is I’m pretty sure from Plaths (it was delicious) mashed red skin potatoes, sauerkraut & red cabbage too - with rye bread too ... it was just so much that I saved half for tomorrow.

Bruce Green lunch or dinner on Friday!

It’s white caps still there

That's gross
