Newsy Newsletter

Welcome to April….the month of blooming trees and flowers and great specials and fun times at The Main Street Pub.  We’re hoping that winter is behind us…..and now we face the pollen season …..Ah-Ah-Ah-CHU!!!.... God bless you!

 

Katie’s famous BBBC Sandwich was so popular in February during her Kitchen Take-Over, that we wanted it to be the “star sandwich” for April.   The BBBC is Roast Beef, Bacon, Barbeque Sauce and Cheddar Cheese all warm and molded together on toasted sourdough bread topped with lettuce, tomato and mayonnaise served with a choice of a side.  It is truly delicious and many of you have come by asking for us to include it on the menu…..so here’s your chance to order and enjoy a great, specially designed sandwich!

 

The Steak Quesadilla continues as it has become so popular……and I believe this was also a “Katie Koncoction”…..but whomever was responsible for it, we are forever grateful……it’s just fabulous!

 

I know you have been wondering which Limerick was voted #1 this year……and the winner is……Scott Adams!  Here’s the 2017 Winning Limerick:

 

                        Main Street Pub is the finest location

                        Where the thirsty crowd round for libation

                        The waitresses cheer

                        When generous drunkards appear

                        Till they skip out and blame intoxication!

 

Scott Adams did add a P.S. after his limerick, which said,” I was thinking of several of my friends when I wrote this.”  Very cute, Scott!  Please come by and pick up your $100.00 Main Street Pub gift card.

 

Each year in April we sponsor The Used Book Drive at The Main Street Pub.  This year, books will be donated to the VVA, the Vietnam Veterans of America.  They help all veterans by providing support and appreciation for their service to our nation.  If you have books, CDs, or DVDs to donate, please bring them in and we will get them to VVA.

Trivia

 

Have you ever heard of “New Beer’s Eve”?  A day that only occurred once!

 

Well, here’s the facts……

On March 22, 1933, President Franklin D. Roosevelt signed into law the Cullen-Harrison Act.  This act repealed prohibition for beer.  Effective April 7, 1933, people could once more buy, sell and consume beer.

 

The night before was called "New Beer's Eve".   That night millions of Americans lined up waiting for the stroke of midnight. 

 

On April 7, 1993, the first National Beer Day, Americans consumed 1.5 million barrels of legal beer and ale.

Ending

 

With the warmer weather we hope to see you soon on the patio at The Main Street Pub…..and if it’s a wee bit cool, we have blankets and heaters for your comfort.  Come in, bring your friends or the neighborhood and let us take care of you…..just like family! 

 

Until we see you next, take care, smile and be happy!
