Llamas Just Wanna Have Fun

 

My FOOOOOREth Birthday Golf Getdown is this Saturday 5-9pm at Ranger Creek Brewing. RSVP here!

 

It’ll be hot outside, but Ranger Creek now has a covered back patio with a huge bar, in addition to the indoor area. Bring lawn chairs!

 

Things you already know:

 

NEW STUFF:

  • If you’ve paid attention, you know about the Llama Palmer signature cocktail (an Arnold Palmer with Ranger Creek’s white whiskey)…
  • …those bad boys will be coming in limited edition, commemorative Golf Getdown glassware. The first 30 of you will be guaranteed one of these suh-weet mason jar mugs. After that, I make no promises.
  • Babcakes Bakery is making my custom cookies once again, and I’ve been promised some truly delightful designs. Here’s what she’s pulled off in the past!
