This Weekend at Jake Moon

Greetings from Clarksville

Well, another week, another Nor’easter; this time we somehow managed not to shut down because of it. We are happy to report that there is no shortage of snow out here on the edge of the Heldebergs for your winter sports and sight seeing in general! We are all dressed up to celebrate the Irish, and we are the perfect place to stop on your way to the parade--or coming back. We will feature some classic Saint Patrick’s Day fare to get you singing those Irish tunes and doing some high-stepping. Just a taste of these include Corned Beef & Cabbage (of course), Irish Stew, Irish Soda Bread (for here or to take home), Irish Soda Bread French Toast, Irish Eggs Benedict, and Bangers with Eggs. And of course some beer specialties. We also have some new selections from Indian Ladder, including a Crab Apple Hard Cider that is not to be missed.

And don’t forget to check us out this week as we dazzle the throngs with Chef’s appearance “On the Menu,” on Spectrum News station Channel 9. He was featured executing four of our signature dishes and talking about about the story of Jake Moon (the person as well as our nine-year run using his name). The show is hosted by Tamani Woolley, filmed by Ken Deyoe, and it will air on Spectrum Channel 9 on March 22 and 24, running a few times each day. A copy of the spot will also be posted on our Facebook Page shortly. You can witness some of the staff trying to dodge the camera, while a few others try to jump into the limelight… great fun!

We plan to keep our campfire going all weekend, extreme weather not included. It’s a great place to gaze at the moon or into the fire and have a hot cider. These are perfect times for that!

Don't forget are open Wednesday through Sunday every day at 8:00 a.m., and we serve dinner Thursday, Friday, and Saturday at 5:00 p.m. (on those days we do not close in between lunch and dinner as we serve drinks, desserts and light fare). On Thursday and Friday we also offer a discounted "Cabin Fever" special between 5:00 and 6:30 for $10.95.

"A Bow and Banjo," our live Sunday brunch music, will be with us this Sunday.

Our Facebook Page is a good place to catch a lot of the goings on that this weekly newsletter doesn't bring you, and that includes pictures as well. Give us a "like" in order to stay tuned to as-the-weekend-progresses menu enhancements.

Sorry about missing you this week in this storm, please be safe and warm, we look forward to seeing you this weekend!
