This Weekend at Jake Moon

Greetings from Clarksville

The dust has mostly settled from last weekend’s frenzied Mom’s Day. Given the line out the door most of Sunday, we apologize to those of you that didn't get in or were outside waiting. We are appreciative of your enthusiasm for what we have to offer! Although we opened the patio in time for the event, the weather really didn't cooperate. This week is a different story, and with fine weather heading down the pike the patio should be a great place to dine. Remember it is a pet friendly patio, with complimentary water bowls for our under-the-table patrons. The only caveat we enforce is that if people have unruly pets prone to offending others, they must be kept outside the fenced-in area.

This week brings another reason to celebrate; it is “Bethlehem Restaurant Week,” which means you can join us for a $25 Prix Fixe dinner. Go on line or Facebook to see our Restaurant Week menu.

Regrettably, we mourn the loss of two area food establishments of note. Smith’s Tavern in Voorheesville is closing to make way for a new Stewart's Shop on the 27th of this month (Famous for thier pizza, they have been there a long time). One of Chef’s favorites, The Merry Monk (of Albany and Saratoga), was closed due to tax problems. A real loss for the epicurean landscape of the capital region.

Since it's that time of year for parties, we’d like to remind you that we can help streamline events with a full line of party trays that make a do-it-yourself party very feasible. Feel free to call and get a menu.

“A Bow and Banjo,” our live music for brunch, will return in some fashion--it isn’t clear exactly who will be matched up this weekend, but we can assure you it will be great!

And if good live music is your thing, our friends at Indian Ladder Cidery and Brewery will be hosting “The Red wagon,” a band out of Schoharie that includes friends and family of Jake Moon. Near and dear to our heart, Indian Ladder hard cider and craft beers are regulars on our beverage menu here at the restaurant.

Another reminder, we are now open Wednesday through Sunday, at 8:00 am. And a reminder that on days we serve dinner (Thursday, Friday, and Saturday), we are open straight through, serving light fare, drinks, and dessert from 3:00 to 5:00. It has also been dubbed our Happy Hour, as we also offer drink specials then.

Remember that we have re-named our early dinner offering the "Cabin Fever Special." Every Thursday and Friday we offer a $10.95 Prix Fixe menu that includes two courses and special wine and beer discounts.

You're always welcome to visit our Facebook Page. Give us a "like" in order to stay tuned to as-the-weekend-progresses menu enhancements.

Hope to see you soon!
