The Magic of Halloween – A Holiday For All Ages!

Oh the magic of Halloween – the holiday most people can, and do, enjoy. Unlike some of the other holidays that lose their thrill as you grow up, this is one you can love at any age!

Although the origin of Halloween is quite grim, it has evolved into a day/evening of light-hearted fun.  As a child, you got to dress up in costume, trick-or-treat for candy (Oooh Reese’s Peanut Butter Cups!), carve pumpkins, and pretend to be someone you’re not (or wish you were) for a few hours.  Let’s be honest, hanging out in your costume and divvying up the candy loot after a long night of trick or treating was the best! 

Then you grow up.  Halloween parties become all the rage among your circle of friends!  You still dress in costume and pretend to be someone you‘re not for one evening (sometimes for a prize).  Our choice of costumes may have evolved from princesses, pirates, or super heroes to, well, pirates, super heroes and… Ok, maybe our costumes haven’t evolved all that much, but there have been some pretty creative ones out there recently.

The point is, Halloween bridges the generational gap for children and adults alike.  It has become more family friendly and sensational!

Parents, are you excited to share the holiday with your kids?  If you’re looking for something fun to do, bring your children to the Yankee Doodle Tap Room on Halloween. Kids under 12 and in costume eat free!  Click here for more information.

With Halloween a few days away, how will you celebrate? Best response could win a prize!

New Fall Menu Premieres in the Yankee Doodle Tap Room!

Yankee Doodle Tap Room Debuts New Fall Menus!

When you think of your favorite restaurants, what do you think of?  That great dish you tried and loved?  The reliable old favorite you never stray from?  Maybe a combination of the two?

That’s exactly the mentality that went into creating the new Yankee Doodle Tap Room menus.  The Chef brought back old favorites (like the delectable chicken pot pie) and debuted new items (such as the Cheddar and Bacon Meatloaf, Bourbon Glazed Short Rib, and the Scallops & Butternut Squash Linguine).  The items on the new menus are guaranteed to please your palette – and wait until you try the Desserts or the Fall Drink options!
