Next 2021 Lunching Out —

Our luncheon, which was supposed to be at Acacia in September, has been rescheduled for October.

We are meeting at Acacia in Lawrenceville on Friday, October 22 at noon. In the past, we have been able to get separate checks.  I hope they will still do that for us

If you would like to join us, please contact Bonnie Larson, bonniejlarson63@comcast.net or 609-655-2663. 

Bonnie Larson

 

Bonnie Larson has graciously taken over as chair of this group. Please contact Bonnie by email,  bonniejlarson63@comcast.net if you’re planning to join the group. She will email those who have shown interest in these monthly luncheons, to inform them of the current Lunching Out location.  

An urgent request:  If you have to cancel your reservation at the last moment or a day or two before the lunch date because of some unforeseen event, please call Bonnie rather than using email. If you would like to be on a waiting list, in case of someone cancelling, let Bonnie know also.

We had a wonderful lunch at Acacia in Lawrenceville on April 23, 2019.

On Friday, March 15, 2019, we went to Brick Farm Tavern in Hopewell for lunch. As each of us entered, we were all commenting on how beautiful the restaurant and grounds are.  We had a room to ourselves, which was good because we had 16 ladies. The waiter was Elaine Rafferty’s godson who was wonderful to our group. The menu was quite limited. Everyone seemed to enjoy their food, but some of the entrees were very small. Before ordering it is important to ask about your choice so you are not disappointed. It is farm to table and the food is organic, including the tea. Some of us had Creme Brûlée tea and some tried the beer that is brewed on site. All in all, everyone had a good time at the restaurant and we decided that we will go back in December when the restaurant and grounds are decorated for the holidays.  

On Thursday, February 7, 2019,  we had a good time at Brickhouse Tavern and Pub in the MarketFair Complex.

We lunched out at Capuano’s on Clarksville Road on Tuesday, October 30, 2018 at 12:30. Capuano’s is a great Italian restaurant in the area. The food is always excellent and they gave us separate checks. We sat in the back room and enjoyed it very much.

We had a wonderful lunch at Vidalia in Lawrenceville on Friday, September 21, 2018.  The weather held out and we were able to sit on their patio.

Tuesday, June 19, 2018 at 12:30. We had a wonderful time at Big Fish.  We had a round table which enabled us to visit with everyone. Food was good and we didn’t even realize how loud the music was!
