Sunday, July 27 8 pm

Storytelling in the Snug with MICHAEL RENO “Michael Reno Harrell is an award winning songwriter, as well as a veteran storyteller and entertainer, and he’s from the South… the Southern Appalachian Mountains to hone it a bit finer… One could compare Michael's performances to his granddaddy's pocket knife: well warn and familiar feeling, but razor sharp and with a point.” ~www.michaelreno.com There will be NO COVER CHARGE for this wonderful event, but we will "pass the hat" for Michael that evening.

**PLEASE NOTE** Seating in the Snug is very limited. Come early to reserve your seats, have a meal in our dining room, and then retire with your drinks to the coziness of the Snug for storytelling!! Reservations for dinner and storytelling or for storytelling alone are strongly recommended.
