Hi all! We hope everyone had as fun this summer as we did. Having Ragbrai come through in late July was a blast! The night before the ride stopped in Mount Vernon for lunch, the staff and a few regulars finished coloring up the last of 20 signs that we posted along that mornings route. It was great to hear many of the riders reference our signs as they came into the downtown area. We ended up selling over 300 pies that day!!! With summer coming to a close and fall right in front of us, we’ve been thinking about a few changes to our hours. In a perfect world we’d like to be open a bit more. We’ve been thinking about adding Friday and Saturday lunch to the mix, as well as Monday nights, and a possible Sunday afternoon as well. So, over the past month we’ve been making a few new additions to the crew. As soon as everyone is trained and ready to go, we’ll be adding to those hours of openedness. Just make sure you’re following us on Facebook (its a lot easier to post changes) and you should be privy to the happenings as they come. September is looking like its going to be a pretty good music month, so make sure you check out who’s playing and when.
Also, this is the time we’ve been waiting for as far as fresh local produce goes. The farmers are busy as heck getting us some delicious veggies, and boy have we been getting a lot. When you come in, make sure to ask about our nightly specials or take a look at them on the chalk board. That’s where many of the goodies will go.
We just came up on the 0ne year anniversary of Jesse as captain of the ship. So far, so good! Thank you to everyone that has continued to love and support what we do here at LWB. With out you and your support, we probably wouldn’t be having as much fun!
