Olde Mill 5k Fun Run

Perfect weather
Our runners tackled some challenging hills
We have the best volunteers.

This was our second Olde Mill Fun Run 5k to benefit the local chapter of Relay for Life and the Laurel Fork Volunteer Fire Department.  It was a beautiful day to get out and sweat a little for two worthy causes.  Make your plans to be here for next years Fun Run.  Thanks to all these folks who helped us raise over 500 dollars! :

Wine Down Thursday

by »

Check out these gorgeous selections for tonight!The Michel Gassier blend of Grenache, Carignan, Mourvedre, Cinsault, and Syrah has great acidity and enough tannins to pair well with our steak kabobs tonight.

La Closerie des Lys 2013 Pinot Noir starts off with a wonderful nose to intice your awaiting tongue.  Light as a feather but flavorful, this will be a match made in heaven for our first heirloom tomatoes of the season.

The “Volpare” Valpolicella is the same blend of grapes used in Amarone wines, just not dried.  This bargain wine has richness, fruit, and refined tannins which make this wine fantastic on its own or paired with a classic Italian dish.

Golf and Beer

by »

Local and seasonal brewsMany people believe that there is no finer match than that of golf and beer (not nessarily in that order). With that in mind, we always make sure to have plenty of ice cold brews for our guests as they make their way around this challenging Maples golf course. It is common practice at golf courses to serve beeverages in non-glass containers as a safety precaution. In other words, most beers come in cans. For many golfers that is not an inconvenience because their favorite beers come in cans. As for the lovers of imports, seasonals, or microbrews, they usually aren’t so lucky on the links. For them, they may have to wait until their round is complete to get their beverage of choice at the restaurant. As a result of the growing number of folks who like craft beers, we have expanded our canned beer selection to give our golfers more diversity in beer styles. It is something that you will see grow and change seasonally as we gain access to more craft brews. We just wanted to let you know that beer is important to us too. Cheers!
