*Lounge - if you eat in the lounge (and we hope you do) OR if you use any of the dishes to provide treats, please make sure you wash, dry, put away and clean up after yourselves. There has been a stash of dishes just sitting in the sink for a week or so now. Cleaning up after ourselves ensures that at least do our part to help reduce the "roach attracting."
