RE: New Year's Eve Menu...

The menu sounds lovely. Wish we could be there! I've told you in the past that we have eaten at your son's restaurant twice. It is very good quality.

Hopefully we will make it to Lexington in the next couple of months. We love that little town.

Hey dixie...I remember ...I am so glad you will get to go back. They have lots of big plans for this next year so stay tuned. Should be very exciting. c
