    Wish I could make it...have to work elsewhere. But I wanted to say what an awesome little space this is and Tom Kelly and his wife Ellie are great people! I'm sure you'll all have a great time and you'll definitely want to go back to see a show sometime once you visit it. Thistle Dew is a one-of-a-kind place...many happy memories there!
