Bosco's Bones (named after a dog who was the honorary mayor of Sunol -- a statue of Bosco is beside the village post office) has long been the center of the small village of Sunol.  The menu features a variety of choices -- appetizers (from $6 to $20), entrees (from $14 to $19), and dessert ($10).  Two items on the kids menu.

Beer, wine, & cocktails are available for individual purchase.
 
Separate checks per couple/family/individual.  There will be a slight upcharge for payment by credit card.
 
Based on its popularity in prior years, we will again have a free wine raffle at this year's holiday party.  Each person (21 yrs. & older) will receive a raffle ticket.  Winners will be drawn from a hat for 10 bottles of wine, compliments of the club.  Based on expected attendance, that works out to about one bottle for every 3 adults.  Pretty good odds!
 
Please advise Gordon Gillmouth (gillmouth@yahoo.com) if you will attend and how many in your party.  Also, as Bosco's Bones is a small restaurant, they have asked that we provide our menu order in advance so they can ensure they have your choice on hand.
 
Please let Gordon know by Thursday, Dec. 1 -- name of those attending and their menu choice -- so we can give the restaurant an advance head & meal count.
 
We hope to see you there.
