Tuesday Specials at the Maritime Market - 2/13

Good Morning Fellow Islanders!

It's 46 degrees on the front porch this morning, with overcast skies and a
firm northeasterly breeze sweeping over the forest - rustling the nearby
palms, and calming the South Beach surf. As the dawn breaks, look for a
mostly cloudy day, with patchy drizzle in the morning, and overcast skies
later this afternoon, with a stiff northeasterly breeze gusting to near
30mph, and temperatures eeking to about 50. Patchy drizzle may continue
through the evening with temperatures leveling off in the mid 40's by dawn
tomorrow, and temperatures rising to the mid 50's by tomorrow afternoon.
We'll see the mid 60's again on Thursday & Friday, with partly sunny skies
and moderate southwesterly breezes. High tide is peaking now. Low tide
will occur just before Noon, and high tide returns at about 6:15 this

For breakfast this morning, Chef Marc is featuring our thick-cut French
toast, with a side of our crispy applewood smoked bacon for just $7.95.
For lunch, Marc is preparing an authentic ravioli carbonara, with a slice
of house-made garlic bread for only $9.95. Order any of our regular menu
items on-line at [1] and your order will be ready when
you arrive.

Tomorrow is Valentine's Day, and the Market has an assortment of delicious
chocolate gift boxes for your sweetheart, along with gift cards and other
goodies, so don't forget your favorite Valentine :)

The Club is now on a waiting list for tomorrow night's Valentine's dinner,
with a special menu and dessert treats. You can add your name to the
waiting list by calling 910-457-7450 or you can dine in the Palms room
(open seating).

We have a few seats remaining for our upcoming Valentine's Sweetheart
dinner, taking place in the Cafe this coming Saturday, so go to
[2] to reserve your seats. Registration deadline is
Wednesday at Noon, or until we sell out :). We'll have four fabulous
courses matched with some terrific wine pairings, with a rose for the
ladies and a few other surprises. This intimate dining experience is only
$85/person, plus tax/gratuity, and there's a non-refundable deposit of $25
to hold your seat. Our wine dinners are legendary, so don't delay.

The Village Chapel will hold a special service for Ash Wednesday tomorrow,
beginning at 1pm.

Sunday services at the Village Chapel will temporarily move to 10am for the
2018 Lenten period, beginning this coming Sunday, February 18, through Palm
Sunday, March 25th.

The BHA's 3rd Monday Potluck takes place next Monday, February 19 at 6pm.
