Key Lime Pie!

A few weeks ago I was blessed with the opportunity to meet a wonderful family! They were the Venasco Family! They were some of the nicest people I had ever met, and I've met a LOT of nice people!!!! : ) Joe Venasco told me that he made a great key lime pie! I told him that I've never had a key lime pie, but it's something I'd like to sell at the restaurant. Joe said, "I'll bring you one of my pies!" So guess what? A few days later, Joe comes in with a box. Inside the box is a cheesecake (with cheeries!!!) and a Key lime Pie. I was very busy the day Joe brought those in..I didn't get the chance to taste those delicious desserts while he was here, but after our dinner rush, I passed a piece out to all of our Tavern Crew! They LOVED their desserts! I tasted the Key Lime Pie! WOW! ARE AMAZING!!!
I called Joe up the next day and I apologized for not getting to talk to him last night, and told him how wonderful the pies were! Next week, Joe brought me two more!! Joe also gave me his recipe! WOOOHHOOOOO!
The Tavern is now featuring Joe Venasco's Key Lime Pie!!! If you are in the area, and you want a taste of summer, come and try a piece!
Thank you Joe, for being such a nice man. I've been blessed with so many people coming through these Tavern doors. God has given me some amazing friends!

The Tavern Journals..

When you come to visit us at the Tavern you will notice journals sitting on the tables. So many people have memories and stories to tell of the Tavern, that we decided to put journals on all of the tables. You can write your story, or a memory or perhaps just an inspirational message in the Tavern journals. Let us know you were here..let us know what you think! One day we are going to publish a book of all the stories and memories of the Tavern written in the journals. We are going to start taking pictures also. If you have any old articles, postcards, or pictures of the Tavern, please bring them in and share them with us! We would love to include them in our book. We want you to be a part of our history and also a part of our future! We want you to share a memory, but to also make a new one! The much more than a restaurant. We want to be a part of your life story!

I think May will be one of the busiest months at the Tavern! Whew! Celebrity series is this Saturday..Mother's Day on Sunday and Westminster graduation next Saturday! We are booked up for all three of these events! Thank you Tavern Patrons for making our restaurant so successful! We are filled with gratitude and thanksgiving to God, to this community and to YOU, our friends and customers.
Please pray that God gives my family and our Tavern team the strength and endurance to get through these busy times! We have so much to do, and it doesn't seem like there's time enough to get everything accomplished! We rely on those prayers! : )
I hope you are enjoying the lovely weather and thank you again for your support! Your friend, Susan
