Hope everybody enjoyed the Thanksgiving holiday – the Pickett’s team sure did. It’s been a busy pre-holiday season and we couldn’t be more thankful. Thanks to everybody who helped us christen the new dining room upstairs with an evening of five delicious courses prepared by Chef Rich Krug and paired with five interesting and delicious wines selected by local wine guru Hank Zona. The room was buzzing with good cheer and Hank’s commentary on each of the wines made drinking them even more enjoyable. We were also happy to host the CHS volleyball team’s banquet. A spirited group of players and their families celebrated a successful season and seemed to be having a great time in the process – thank you and congratulations to all!

We’re continuing to book Pickett’s Upstairs for holiday events and other festive gatherings. If you’re thinking sit-down or buffet dinners, cocktails and hors d’oeuvres, inside or out, think of us. Two important things to keep in mind: one, Pickett’s Upstairs is available for events Monday-Sunday, even when the restaurant is closed; two, when you check out our catering menus online, remember that our team is happy to work with you on a bespoke menu based on your preferences. The next time you’re in for drinks or dinner, don’t hesitate to ask for a little tour of the room upstairs. We’re so proud of our expanded dining space and happy to show it off!

In other news, we’re delighted to report no delays on our gift cards – we’ve got ‘em and so can you. A night out is the perfect present for the person who has everything. For the beer lovers you love, pair a gift card with a growler so they can fill up on their favorites, old and new.
