    Update:
    Just found out from the restaurant owner's son that there won't be any live band performing on Saturday. Apparently they're still trying to get some sort of performances going but it's not happening this Saturday...sorry :(
    But he said that we will certainly enjoy their delicious Southern FOOD and friendly serves.

    Hi everyone!
    I made reservation for 20 people @ 6pm for dinner next Saturday. If you're not planing to stay for dinner but only be coming for HH, please let me know. That way... I can add people on the waiting who wants to come to dinner can take the available seats. Thanks everyone!

    Ok 6pm dinner sounds great! Looking forward to the yummy meal! ;o)

    July 31, 2014

  • Dolly

    $1 is pretty nominal, and more than reasonable. Not a big deal. Right? I'm still new to the foodie meet ups but it seems good & it's nice that there are peeps willing to organize! My 2 cents! ;o)

    4 · July 10, 2014

  • Sheri

    FYI - Since we are already going to be in Pasadena, I'm going on to swing dancing at the Pasadena Ballroom Assoc. Sat night at Grace Church - lesson 7:30, dance after - Dave Stucky - great band! Anyone want to join me?
