This Week at the Lodge ...

The lodge is opening under Phase 2 of the state’s plan.  We’re restricted to 50% capacity in seating, which means only 49 people in the lounge area, and no bar seating.  But we can have 112 in the ballroom.  Only 5 people to a table.  Also, there will be no table/cocktail service, so everyone will have to get their drinks at the bar…please be patient.
