Lavender Bistrol Holiday Dinner Friday, December 07, 2018 6:00 PM


This is a gorgeous restaurant. Let’s dress up and have a really nice dinner to celebrate the holidays. I will make a early on reservation for ten but if we have more a will let them know and they will add more seats. We will sit outside in their lighted garden. They have heaters but bring along a jacket just in case it’s cold. We have so much to be thankful for and is the chance to celebrate the end of 2018. I’m looking forward to a healthy 2019 for all of us. I down loaded the menu. Take a close look. There is something for every budget.
