Topper Ladies e Well, folks, Mt. Pulaski has done it again! Thanks to Ronald Stewart, Jose Tot, and Cesar Andradel of Chestnut, a newly renovated restaurant has opened in our fair city. Our group took advantage of its services Tuesday, March 17, at ll:30am. We gathered there for our monthly luncheon and enjoyed celebrating St. Patrick's Day at the same time. Then, promptly at ll:30am, Mt. Pulaski's favorite "lepre- chaun", Pat Walsh, Sr., arrived on scene wearing a mop of bright Kelly green "hair" and appropriate Irish sweatshirt, extolling to all who listened the virtues of being Irish. Not alone in his eagerness to promote Irish ethnicity, a member of our group, Madonna Boyle, appeared in her version of a St. Pat's Day costume. Dyed green hair (washable, thank goodness), and arrayed in an outfit of orange, green, and white which represented the colors in the Irish flag, Madonna brought many smiles and gig- gles of delight as she hurried to her seat with the group. Co-hostesses for the lun- cheon were Nancy Shanle and Beverly Cyrulik. Favors were handmade by Bey and a "special friend" of hers. Darling green Irish hatS served as small pails filled with green multi-flavored jellybeans and greed M & M candies. us again soon. The door prize, a lovely pot of flesh flowers suitable for planting, was won by Patsy Gar- lits. Also included were two tea towels with an Irish motif done by Nancy. On the menu, corned beef and cabbage with all the trimmings, and corned beef sandwiches with fries, were the favorites of the day. An unusual, but very tasty, cabbage soup with just enough spice was a hit also. Try their homemade pies, too! It's a must to mention and compliment the chef, Jose Toto, whose expertise at food prepa- ration and blending of season- ings is well known. And, it's nice to see familiar faces back among the skilled wait staff... Renay, Tiemey, and others. And, Ron's wife, Mary, reigns at the cash register and serves as welcoming hostess to all who enter. Congratulations on the open- ing and dedication to serving the area. We are indeed fortu- nate for the fine food establish- ments we have in our fair com- munity. Having been totally reno- vated, the decor is well done and elimination of unnecessary items in the dining area add to the extra spatial needs and the free flow of patron traffic. All in all.., it is a job well done. Feel flee to join our group for a few hours of fine dining and visiting each month. All are welcome.
