Someone just came to the door and said that friends of his told him we were
closed not open for the month of January...Please, please help me dispel this misinformation. It has been 15 years since we did that, take our vacation in January. At least 15 years. Maybe more. But you know how a long a story can stay alive in Chestertown. Despite everything I do to enlighten folks, inevitably, come February, customers will come in and ask "So, how was vacation?" When I tell them it hadn't happened yet they recoil in disbelief, and then disappointment, when they realize they could have been having dinner or lunch with us for the past four weeks... This is the major reason we do not use the "c" word in any of our advertising. We might not be open but we are never "cl__ed".
So, to set the record straight, beginning with this venue and moving onto FaceBook and the WebSite:
We take our vacation right after Presidents Weekend, in February, for three weeks.
Whether we need it or not.
Vacation = February. We are open for the entire month of January.
Will I ever win this battle? Probably not. But I will continue to fight the good fight.
