    It’s good to see such “creativity” here in Prince Edward County ! ๐Ÿ™‚

    I also think it is a great idea. I particularly like the venue and the fact finally transportation is provided to events with alcohol. Sounds like a hoot. Now the downside. Why now in mid September with predicted 15 degrees, rain and 25k winds.

    This is a tremendous idea!
