It's time to talk Turkey.  

With Thanksgiving now roughly ten days away, it is almost winter holiday-time when we spend quality moments with our friends, relatives and loved-ones.  And to prepare everyone with the right spirit, on Thursday November 21, we're serving up some of the most recognized political-turkey-talk with punch.

 Yes, you guessed it. It's time for the holiday Politics with a Punch which is often so funny, the spontaneous and deep laughing can knock the stuffings out of our patrons.

Doors open at 6 p.m., the event begins at 8 p.m.

Politics with a Punch is held monthly on stage before a live audience. It is our own local version of “Politically Incorrect.” It is a humorous, fast-paced, free-wheeling, no-holds barred discussion of what is happening in our city, state and nation.

Our next program will be special as we celebrate the
