Holiday Party Tuesday, December 22nd
We will be having our winter party on Tuesday, December 22. You and a guest (and your children) are invited to come relax, imbibe, eat some good Italian food, and celebrate our success this fall. Maple parent, Tom, is again hooking us up with access to the back space of his Clinton Hill spot, Emerson Bar.
Pizzas from Graziella's will be served and their will be drink specials at the bar on us. Also, Emerson has a DJ booth (iPod and turntables <bring your own needles>) that Tom has given us access too. More details below and please RSVP by Tuesday, 12/15, so that we know how much food to order. You will need to type in yourself and your guest separately (you can make up an email address for these purposes).
Email Todd with questions.
