    Great work as always guys. Certainly going to be taking advantage of this fine guide. I am glad that you covered this cause I really do think that it seems that many restaurants and bars neglect to offer up details. I was checking the usual list of sources…individual websites, twitter feeds and facebook pages and found nothing. So thanks again for doing what you do…Really wasn’t in the mood to call every place in town (done that in the past haha)
