    This menuis listed from 2009. Are we to assume that the same menu is to apply for 2013? This should be updated just so people will be assured the fare that's being offered for the day.

  2. This menu is clearly for 2009 and the new one is posted on September 26, 2013 for 2013.

    2. We do change the menu each year. So I thought for the person asking, that the question was answered. The answer is "no" it is not the same menu as it was in 2009. Here is the link to the menu for Thanksgiving 2013: This post was on our "Daily Diary" a daily news vehicle not unlike a daily printed newspaper. One does not go back and update a newspaper from four years ago, and thus we would not update this post. Thank you for your concerns. Happy Thanksgiving to you as well! :-)
