Thursday Night Music Returns! (posted 11/6/13)
Our Thursday Night Music has started!
We offer this free music show for our diners' enjoyment.
Jon Sochin takes the Paddle stage this Thursday, November 7th.
A local fave, Jon is a gifted singer and guitarist and he always wows our guests with the strength of his ballads. Come on in for his awesome show!
For those of you who haven't been here at The Paddle on an off-season Thursday evening, here's how it works:
We take away the first table in our downstairs dining room and replace it with a little stage. There's no cover charge, but we do recommend making reservations because seating is limited. And, by all means - you feel like dancing? Then dance!
P.S. Want a quieter Thursday night experience? When you make your reservation, please request a table upstairs in one of our two dining rooms!
* Oct. 7th ~ Jon Sochin
* Oct. 14th ~ Rodney Putnam
* Oct. 21st ~ Carol Ann Jones
* Oct. 28th ~ TBA

Michael wrote: The statue is of Brigitte Bardot. The place is Buzios in the state of Rio de Janeiro in Brazil. It's a beautiful place with lots of beautiful beaches that Brigitte "discovered" in the 1960s.
From a website:
Bronze Statute of Brigitte Bardot Along the Way to Rua das Pedras
Brigitte Bardot made Buzios famous by making it her personal choice of beach destinations in 1964. Today, it is a favorite with Rio de Janeiro's upper class and international visitors alike.
