Try out the new Broken Spoke Saloon at the Weirs, great food & music

To The Daily Sun,

Thank you John and Donna Turner for an awesome car show that took place on Sept. 24. It was an awesome day out to enjoy with nice antique cars and trucks.

My family and I have been to a lot of car shows, cruise nights and this one was at the top of the list with a live band, great food, big dollar 50/50 raffle and the best trophies handed out for a classic hot rod show.

If you haven't been to the Broken Spoke Saloon, located in Weirs Beach, since the new management, try it out — great food and live music. I hope to enjoy many more shows. Thank you from the Young family, Young's Old Tyme Service Station.

Ellacoya Barn & Grill outdid itself in hosting wedding rehearsal dinner

To The Daily Sun,

On Friday, Sept. 30, our family hosted a wedding rehearsal dinner for our son, Evan Belanger and his beautiful lady, Sara Harris, at the Ellacoya Barn and Grille, in Gilford. I cannot begin to tell you about the absolutely great time had by yours truly, and 40 other guests. The private banquet room was just perfect with its rustic décor, spacious, so warm and comfortable, completely accommodating.

The food was delicious, just what we ordered, and the timing of everything was very appropriate. The two gals who totally took care of us, Barbie and Johanna, did so with efficiency, and always a laugh and smile. They seemed to be having a fun time in making our night special.

When we learned we were going to be responsible for the rehearsal dinner for our son's upcoming wedding, I had fun researching many of the venues throughout the Lakes Region that host a party of this nature. We chose the Ellacoya Barn and Grille because they were easy to approach, easy to work with, had a great spot for our size party, had a complete and enjoyable menu, and the costs were unbelievably reasonable.

Thank you for being so caring to make sure our kids had a memorable evening, you outdid yourselves. We would recommend your establishment to anyone looking for a similar venue. I cannot imagine anyone else doing it any better.

Jim Babcock
