New Years Eve.

Hello out there..

I certainly hope thus far your holiday season has been enjoyable. Besides the fact that I think Joseph is planning on giving me coal this year for Christmas, my holiday season is shaping up nicely. We are planning what will be quite a lovely evening for this months dinner club. Due to the nature of December we will be holding dinner club on New Years Eve this year. Both the Pizzeria & Communal will be getting in on the action. We will only be doing one seating at each restaurant so unfortunately you won’t be able to eat at one early and then hurry down to the other to catch a late seating (sorry). Here are the essentials broken down:

Pizzeria Seven Twelve
December 31st
7:00 p.m.
5 course menu – $48/person

December 31st
7:00 p.m.
5 course menu – $55/person

We figure at either place you will be looking to spend 2 – 2 1/2 hours. We want to get you back out in plenty of time to continue the evenings festivities.
Reservationists are standing by, ready to make all of your holiday wishes come true.
