We are once again doubling up on the fun for our annual Customer Appreciation Day. That means two days of deep discounts (20% off everything), samples of gourmet ingredients and Thanksgiving friendly wines. So, make the most of the season by coming to both events.

Turkey will be the star at Lincoln Square where our chefs will demonstrate how to smoke, grill, deep-fry and of course, roast a turkey during our Turkey Trunk Show. They'll also be showing off their favorite Thanksgiving side dishes. So stop by for expert tips, tricks, advice - and tastings!
