Mixing It Up Behind the Bar

Guest Bartender 8.26.16 (2)Last Friday we hosted our ever-popular Guest Bartender Night.  We first introduced Guest Bartender last year- and it was a hit!  It’s an evening in which we invite two brave Wexford members to hop behind the bar (with support from our knowledgeable bar backs!) and serve their neighbors and friends, with all tips going to a good cause. Interested members throw their hat into the ring and their names are selected at random.

This time Cindy Creamer and Josh Johnson were the two lucky members selected!  They chose the theme, Yacht Rock, and the specialty drinks, Smooth Operator and Lido Cosmo.  Everyone had a blast – patrons and bartenders alike!

Wexford Garden

In honor of Earth Day, we’re taking a moment to recognize and celebrate our Wexford Garden!

Many members don’t realize it – but this is the 11th year Chef Frank and his Culinary Team have planted the Wexford Garden, located outside of the Clubhouse (near the pool).  Chef is currently growing herbs, as well as six varieties of tomatoes (!!), which they’ll begin to use in the kitchen in late May/early June. Hint: You’ll find them in our featured salad specials! 😉

According to Chef, “The garden and fresh produce is an inspiration to cooking in every way!”
