The Landmark Restaurant has been sold!
It has been sitting empty and falling apart for over a year.
As of Saturday, Aug. 18 it looks like this "Landmark" in Christopher Creek is going to come back to life.
Gary and Cindy Werlinger of Gilbert purchased the restaurant at auction. That same evening Rodney Britain and about 40 residents got together and threw a celebration party on the back patio.
Word is that Gary's birthday is on New Year's and they are hoping to have the celebration at the new and improved Landmark. Gary and is in heavy construction in the Valley, but Cindy and he also owns a home in Christopher Creek.
I will keep you posted as to the future of this Landmark. Residents are very excited to see this business go to a local who is enthusiastic about making it work.
Bingo in the Fire Hall
Don't forget the Firebelles will present Root Beer Floats and Casino bingo with prizes on Labor Day, Saturday, Sept. 1 at the fire hall at 6:30 p.m. They would like everyone to come out and join in on the fun. Last week was the last yoga class at the fire hall for summer. The next and last Firebelle meeting for the season is scheduled for Monday, Sept. 10, at 10 a.m. at the fire hall.
The first Oktoberfest is coming to Creekside Steakhouse:
2 p.m. to 8 p.m., Saturday, Sept. 29.
2 p.m. to 6 p.m., Sunday, Sept. 30. Owners Wolfgang and Jean Klein and Gene and Thelma Bettencourt invite all of you to join them at Creekside Steakhouse and Tavern for their first Annual Oktoberfest.
They will be serving up live polka bands, bratwurst, sauerkraut, German potato salad, red cabbage and of course apple strudel.
Along with German music comes German beer, wheat beer and dark beer, all under the beer tent, on their new patio and even in the parking lot. This is one Oktoberfest you want to mark on your calendars because it is going to be a very fun event, one I am sure will continue for years. Come out for some great music and some very good food and enjoy the Fall weather here in Christopher Creek.
