Welcome Back Inn Mates!

It was GREAT to open our Inn last night a full 24 hours before anyone else on the street and have the opportunity to share conversation with you all!

I hope you are getting settled in, enjoyed tonight’s dinner as well and are excited about the coming year. We will keep the yummy treats like those Cotton Candy Grapes coming at you, along with the last of the sensational New Jersey tomatoes, corn, squash and fall produce. Please take full advantage of our interactive request sight, we love your suggestions and do our best to have them turned around asap.

Be sure to say Hi and get to know our staff, a GREAT Team that truly LOVE the Club and delight in seeing you happy!

I know a new social Calendar will be out soon..maybe one of our famous wine tastings will be on there..  Fall football receptions with the Alumns are coming (Think… like you..just a few years later! ) our Board will be visiting on the 21st and of course the 80’s Semi!

Lots of FUN is on the horizon..Be sure to take advantage of your ability to have ownership of an event.. ask any Club officer..

Until then be safe, spread the word about our Wonderful Club and do not hesitate to let me know what else we can do for you!

Thanksgiving Week!

Hello everyone!

As you know it’s a short week at the Inn, but still we’ve got some fun ‘on tap’.

Please join me Tues evening in the Living room for a Horizontal tasting of the two chief grape Varietals of France’s Burgundy, Chardonnay and Pinot Noir (of ‘Sideways Movie Fame). We will be doing a guided educational tasting, and scoring 3 of each type  in order to learn the process and better understand wine.While these will mostly be California wines I may have another French grape varietal around for later in my ‘bag of mix’.

A great time is in store, so please come out and enjoy!


A reminder too that if you are on Campus with no Thanksgiving Plan please let me know. I will be hosting a Family and Friends dinner Thanksgiving afternoon, so do contact me at ChefAlan@CloisterInn.com  or stop in my office for particulars, you are most welcome to join us!
