Who Woulda Thought???

On Decenber the 28th, we're going to be 17 years old!!!

To all our old regulars, and to all our new ones, come on out and join us for a few laughs and a few draughts. We're giving away stuff you can take home and stuff that you can't, (if you know what I mean). So join us at the Reb and help Bruce, Dave and the gang deal with the fact that we're a year older. See you there.
