Newsy Newsletter

It’s Here!!!!  The last month of the year…..December…..and as I was thinking about this newsy newsletter that I write each month….I had an amazing thought!  Have we had a good year?….have we had enough fun?   We have just the next 31 days to party… let’s party each day this month!  Let’s meet old friends and meet new friends every day at The Main Street Pub…..and have great food and warm (or cold) beverages….let’s connect with each other…..



At The Main Street Pub


All month long our featured special is the Steakburger Platter….our 7 oz. Angus burger smothered with sautéed onions and mushrooms, accompanied with mashed potatoes and covered with brown gravy…..comfort food at its best!  It’ll warm you  and fill you up!


Daily we make our homemade Chili….piping hot and seasoned just right…..pair it with a grilled cheese for a fabulous and warm meal.  We call it our Chili and a Grilli.

The Harvest Pear Salad is a great choice for lunch or dinner…..Arcadian salad greens topped with bleu cheese crumbles, glazed pecans, dried cranberries, pico, red onion, and topped off with sliced pears and accompanied by your choice of dressing…..pears are the fruit of choice since so many fruits are out of season in the winter month.


For all the “sweet tooth” folks, our signature dessert is the Mint Chocolate Brownie Sundae…..a warmed mint chocolate brownie with vanilla ice cream and chocolate sauce…..unbelievable delicious!  Kristina at Cupcaked, our premier bakery on Chapel Road, makes the mint chocolate brownies exclusively for us.


We have Hoodies and T-shirts for your holiday shopping needs.  We also have gift card for everyone on your list……we can help with your gift giving while you enjoy your lunch or dinner at The Main Street Pub.

What came first?  The Bill of Rights or The Constitution?


On March 4, 1789, the Constitution of the United States of America was ratified by the (former) 13 colonies, and went into effect. States and individuals were concerned that the Constitution did not properly cover and protect a number of rights of individuals. The Constitution was signed by the original 13 states with the requirement, or understanding, that a Bill of Rights would be created, amending the new U.S. Constitution.


On September 25, 1789, the First Congress of the United States proposed to the state legislatures 12 amendments to the Constitution. Ten of these amendments were added to the Constitution on December 15, 1791 as the Bill of Rights.





As we share these last few days of the year, we are reminded of all the love and support we receive each year from our customers at The Main Street Pub.  We wish each of you a happy holiday season filled with friends, family, and fun.  We thank you for your continued friendship.  Let’s toast each other and pray that 2018 will be a spectacular year!


Always remember to forget

The troubles that passed away

But never forget to remember

The blessings that come each day


We love you all and look forward to seeing you soon at The Main Street Pub.  Have a fabulous holiday season!  Stay safe and Smile!
