Happy St. Patrick's Day and WHOAH! Spring!

Hello Wheatsville friends and fans!

Happy Birthday to us!
Thanks to all who came and had some cake for our Birthday yesterday! It was great and the pony ride and bounce house were awesome! (OK, OK we didn't really have those...)

It's not too late for you to rock the St. Patrick's Day. Delicious food on the hot bar like Corned Beef, Cabbage, Colcannon and Irish Soda Bread! Plus, Guiness Ginger Cake and Mint Chocolate Cake, too! Or make your own corned beef with the Boar's Head Corned Beef "kit" in the meat department!
