At long last, the work to rebuild Willie Mae's Scotch House is complete. Join us as we present Ms. Seaton with the keys to her kitchen and toast the herculean efforts of John Currence -- chef, contractor, and all around good egg. To read more about the event, click on the title link to this post.

Update: Keys to the Kitchen is SOLD OUT. But we invite you to join us for the film screening at the Republic (see post above).
