First off, thanks to everyone who helped to make 2009 another great year for our little family here at Mr. Friendly’s! It’s hard to believe that we have been here for 15 years already, and we certainly could not have done it without the amazing support we receive from the community. THANK YOU ALL!!!!!!!!

Alright! Another way we like to thank all of our loyal Friends is through our e-mail specials, blogsite, and twitter. This is how we get all of the information out to you about all of our specials, discounts, and just what’s going on with us.

The week of January 25th-30th we will be celebrating SWINE & WINE WEEK. This will be our first official endeavor into the realm of pairing incredible “swine” oriented dishes with incredible wine. Keep checking back to this blog or our e-mails for more details on this week’s specials.

This also means that we will be closed all day the 15th of February. We will have more details on the menu for this weekend as we get closer to the dates.

See you all soon!
