A fun dinner

While Galoshes and I were at Chapel by the Spring we went to the Baker House for a light dinner and drinks.  I really wanted to attend one of their murder mystery parties! But dinner was fun as well, but what made the night was their traditional toast to the sunset.  It's one of the neatest traditions I have ever seen.  As the sun is setting the hostess comes around with a large bell and instructs everyone to head out to the front lawn (the restaurant is a mansion).

They bring out a large rack of hats and everyone has to choose one.  You can tell how fun Kym, the woman behind Chapel by the Spring and our new friend, is by the hat she chose!
Mine was a bit wrinkly, but I'm a big hat kinda girl.  They handed out delicious caramel apple drinks for the toast.  This gentleman walked around entertaining everyone.
The owner comes out all dressed up in a vintage gown and tells you the history of the house (you will have to go there to hear it!) then toasts the sunset to a wonderful day.  How cool is that! 
So when you take advantage of the Chapel by the Spring deal for MJ&G readers!!!! Head over to the Baker House and toast the sunset.
