We have been working hard on training our staff on the "new normal", making sure we have adequate tables and spacing, following the state-mandated guidelines, etc., to ensure that this is not only an enjoyable experience for you and our staff, but that safety remains our top priority. Please be patient with us as we navigate our re-open plan.
We are so excited to see your smiling faces (like SO EXCITED!)!
