( I hope all is well sirs and that the cars are out and about.
I would like to invite you and your members out to The Alibi Pub & Eatery for Sunday Cruise Gathering from 4-9pm every Sunday.
We are doing a $10 burger and fries and a $5 10 ounce Big Surf Lager special for car owners, have a photographer taking pictures, and might have some pin-up girls attend.

We have live Music Open Mic from 6-9 pm with Mike Dominey, a excellent local artist and members can get up and sign or play along with him.

Let's encourage everyone to take a night off from making dinner, have a great burger and perhaps a pint togethe…
