Hand and Foot Is Alive and Well but Changing Dates

Napa was so happy to see his old friends today.  What a fun time was had at The Grape & Ale!

We are moving Hand & Foot to Tuesdays from 1 pm. to 5 p.m.  Wine and Beer Club Members and their guests are welcome as well as newcomers to our area.

Space will be limited due to the addition of the taproom; however, there will be three tables set up inside that will include cards provided by us.  Tables are on a first come, first serve basis.

There is plenty of space outside for several tables.  We ask that you bring your own cards just in case you will be outside.  

Please do not bring your own beverages.

We are looking forward to seeing all of our card friends soon!
