Merry Christmas to One and All!

You know Dasher, and Dancer, and Prancer, and Vixen
Comet, and Cupid, and Donner and Blitzen
But, do you recall the most famous reindeer of all

Rudolph the red-nosed reindeer had a very shiny nose
And if you ever saw it, you would even say it glows
All of the other reindeer used to laugh and call him names
They never let poor Rudolph join in any reindeer games

Then one foggy Christmas Eve Santa came to say
“Rudolph with your nose so bright, won’t you guide my sleigh tonight?”
Then how the reindeer loved him as they shouted out with glee
“Rudolph the red-nosed reindeer, you’ll go down in history!”

It’s that time of year once again when all is merry & bright. Everyone’s mood seems to be more joyful, and a little extra holiday spirit comes out to help make lasting memories that we can carry throughout the coming year.

The holiday season tends to bring out the best in people. Sharing time with family and friends is such a gift, and offering a helping hand to someone in need does the soul good. Always remember that family is important, and what you do today will come back two-fold in the future.

Now, grab that cup of coffee, because it's time for this month's fireside chat.

This month is unusual based on the number of scheduled private events that will be going on.

  • The only Prime Rib nights we will be able to offer this month will be on Friday, December 20.
  • Our Fresh Catch evening will be on Friday, December 27.
  • We have four scheduled PAC Buffet offerings in December:
    • Twas the Night Before Christmas – Saturday, December 7, 5:00-7:00 p.m.
    • Midtown Men – Sunday, December 15, 5:00-7:00 p.m.
    • David Phelps – Friday, December 20, 5:00-7:00 p.m.
    • Lone Star & Phil Vasar – Saturday, December 21, 5:00-7:00 p.m.

You can make reservations by calling the Club.

Make sure you mark your calendar for our annual Santa Brunch on Sunday, December 8! Santa will visit all the good little boys and girls at the Club, and the buffet is designed uniquely for the kids. This event fills up quickly and continues to grow, so call early to make your reservations.

As many of you know, this is an extremely busy time at the Club, so please be sure to check for any Clubhouse closings or holiday events on the calendar. This is also an important time to remind everyone to call ahead for reservations as many of our nights will fill up quickly. I hate to turn down any opportunities to take care of our members when they would like to come and dine. However, there are times when we just can't accommodate everyone without sacrificing quality or service, and that’s something we will NOT do. So please call with any questions on dates or times!

We are looking forward to a very exciting 2020, and we can’t wait to see what the New Year holds for us here at the Club. Remember, we will be closed for our customary shutdown from January 1 through January 13.

Just a reminder that we can take care of all your Party Planning needs, so be sure to get in touch with us as soon as you can so we can provide you some tasty party items.

Indulge yourself this New Year’s Eve. We will host an exquisite celebration with an outstanding seafood buffet. Don’t forget about the excellent wine and even better company! Please join us for a great evening and make your plans to end the year with us. Call the Club to make your reservations.

We’ve been working on some new menu changes for the upcoming year. We continuously review what we do and how we can make it better. We hope to build on the successes we’ve had this past year, and continue delivering delicious food, excellent value, and superb service to our members. Our commitment to being the very best at everything we do has always been our goal.

To wrap up, on behalf of the entire Willow Bend staff, we would like to thank you all for a great 2019 and raise a glass to the upcoming 2020. We are wishing everyone a safe and happy holiday season, and I hope everyone’s Christmas wishes come true!

Cheers, God bless, and may the road rise to meet you.
