Don’t forget that every Wednesday evening is our Wine Flight Wednesdays! YOU get to decide what goes in your wine flight! And you pay a flat $11 or $15 depending on the wines you choose! Bring your friends and try a few wines!

While you are visiting us, pick up a few gift cards! From your babysitter, to your kid’s teacher, your spouse or your parents, there is something for everyone at Kettle! They make excellent presents for the hard-to-buy for person in your life!

On Saturday, December 3, we’re participating in the Chamber’s chili cookoff! Stop by the front of Kettle for a sample of a homemade smoked brisket chili starting at 11! We’ll be serving this as our soup of the week next week, so get a sample this weekend before you get a full bowl next week!
