    Last Weeks program - November 14, 2006 - Luncheon at Lumber Barons Restaurant

    On November 14 the club met at the Lumber Barons restaurant and brew pub on the West side. The program committee is planning two off site meetings each year which will include tours of interesting places in the community.

    The Lumber Barons was chosen for this meeting, and the board meeting which was held at 11:00 before the regular meeting, was also intended to give the club a chance to evaluate this establishment as a new meeting place. General comments were favorable. Parking is good, the location is convenient, and the food was great. The room may present some challenges for the program considering the pillars in the room and the lighting.

    Following the regular meeting the day's program consisted of a tour of the facility which started with a visit to the beer brewery. The brew master gave a short course on the art of brewing and answered questions. The group then moved to the bar area for a beer tasting.

    The tour moved to the main floor kitchen facility. The restaurant has the advantages of two full kitchens so that events in the upstairs dining room can be catered without impacting regular operations going on downstairs.

    The tour concluded in the Stables Cigar Bar in the lower level at the back of the building. The former owners, Hereford and Hops, built the stables to house their draft horses. Lumber Barons converted the actual stables into a unique set of semi-private rooms and the overall area into an intriguing bar setting. Rotary Club of Bay City Web Site
