Welcome to December!


December is finally here! It’s hard to believe that we are entering the last month of 2018… Where has the time gone? Hopefully you have already been out to play Bar Bingo on Monday nights, but just in case you haven’t, December is Bingo Month! We are celebrating by playing Bar Bingo every Monday night at 7 pm… come join the fun!

 

All month long our featured special is the Steakburger Platter… our juicy 7 oz. Angus burger smothered with sautéed onions and mushrooms, served with mashed potatoes and covered with brown gravy. Talk about some comfort food! It’ll warm you right up and keep you full.

 

We also have our Homemade Chili & Cornbread Muffin to help warm you up this winter! Our chili is made daily just for you… and if you want a heartier meal, try pairing it with a custom grilled cheese! The Harvest Pear Salad is also a great choice for lunch or dinner… Arcadian lettuce topped with bleu cheese crumbles, candied pecans, dried cranberries, pico, red onion, and freshly sliced pears.

 

A brand new special that we are introducing this month is the Spicy Steak Fajita Wrap… blackened flat iron steak mixed with sautéed onions, jalapenos, and red peppers, pico, lettuce, and shredded cheeses all wrapped up and served with your choice of side. A delicious new wrap with a kick! Be sure to tell us what you think about it!

 

Save some room for dessert… this month we are featuring Banana Cream Pie! This pie is absolutely delicious… a must-have and will have you wanting more of it!


And if you are looking for plans for New Year’s Eve, come on down and ring in 2019 with us! We are throwing a 90’s themed party for the night… so pull out your overalls and other fun 90’s clothes! We’ll be rocking out to all your favorite 90’s tunes and completing the night with a champagne toast!

 

If you’re looking for ideas for your holiday shopping, don’t forget about our hoodies, t-shirts, and gift cards! There are also some holiday events happening in the Town of Clifton. The Historic Clifton Holiday Homes Tour is on Saturday, December 1st from 4-7 pm. We have tickets for sale at The Main Street Pub for this great event! Plus, these festivities start off with the Holiday Horse Parade and Caroling at 2 pm… don’t be late or you might miss seeing horses and their riders all decked out in their festive holiday costumes!

 

For all of your holiday plans and parties, remember that we are still offering the Safe Ride Program… just bring us a receipt for your Uber, Lyft, or cab ride to the pub and you will receive a FREE selected appetizer!

Trivia

 

Since Christmas is almost here, we decided to treat you with some facts about reindeer! Some of the North American reindeer, also known as caribou, typically migrate over 3,000 miles in a year. That’s more than any other land mammal! While reindeer are typically thought of as a tundra species, a form of caribou originated in southern Idaho up until the 19th century. There are ongoing efforts to re-establish them in the state, but human-caused pressures as well as environmental threats are major concerns.

 

These animals are the only type of deer in which both males and females grow antlers. The male’s antlers can grow up to 51 inches and weight up to 33 pounds, while the female’s only grow up to 20 inches. They are very social creatures with some herds including several hundred of them!

 

Reindeer are currently listed as vulnerable by the International Union for Conservation of Nature. They are classified as vulnerable due to the 40 percent decline in population over the past 21-27 years. Currently, there are around 3.5 million caribou in North America, around 1 million wild reindeer in Eurasia, and around 3 million domesticated reindeer in northern Europe.

 

 

Ending
