What Women Want
Terrific romantic comedy and the perfect movie for a girls night out, or a date with your favorite fella.
We had such a great time, that the entire group wants to do the next Progressive Dinner. We had a choice of delicious soup or a chicken taco with pear slaw for our appetizer at Mex & Co. They were both a huge hit! Then we were off to the Stone Cellar for a choice of pork or chicken, served with a delicious chutney and placed over creamy mashed potatoes. Everyone loved the presentation and both amazing entrees. After the first two courses we weren't' sure that we had room for dessert, that is until we got to Maximilians, and saw what they were serving. We had the choice of a decadent apple dessert with a scoop of homemade caramel ice cream or a pumpkin cheesecake with pecan topping. Needless to say the evening was a hit with the entire group and we were pleasantly full from an evening of delicious food.
Watch for the next Progressive Dinner and don't miss your opportunity to enjoy the delicious creativity of Mex & Co. , the Stone Cellar and Maximilians.
