February 20th Customer Appreciation Party + 5 Year Anniversary Party

In January we hit a major milestone.... 5yrs!  Justin, Margaret and The French Press staff would like to extend an invitation to our customers to show our appreciation for helping us get to where we are today.  We couldn't have done it without each and every person who spread the word to their friends or put up with the wait on Sunday.  On Friday, February 20th, we will be showcasing a selection of hors d'oeuvres from our catering menu, serving one of our specialty cocktails and pouring wine (of course.)  If you’re looking for something harder, we will have a full cash bar.  Party is from 6- till.  Come one come all.  As we say, the more the merrier! We are super excited to show you all a good time and thank you face to face.  Hope to see you there!
