Happening at Claire's and Around Hardwick

Summer Hours: Starting this week, we’ll be open again every Tuesday after 2:30, serving dinner from 5-9. In the next few weeks, we’ll also add Sunday dinner hours, and until then, the Lakeview Inn is planning a special Sunday Supper on June 7. Find out more details at the Hardwick Area Chamber of Commerce Community Calendar.

New CSR Cards Have Arrived: Stop by and pick yours up today if you are a CSR holder. You’ll also have the opportunity to meet our new dining room manager, Veronica Medwid. Veronica is originally from upstate New York, but spent the last several years working in the world of restaurants and local food in Santa Fe, New Mexico. She’s thrilled to be closer to her family in Derby, and to be able to contribute to the agricultural economy in Hardwick and northeast Vermont.

Summer Cocktails: We’re also debuting our new cocktail menu, featuring a local twist on some classics, and special syrups made my our neighbor Linda Fox. Claire’s Cosmo or a Blueberry Mint Julep will satisfy any sweet tooth, and for just a little twist, you’ll find a Raspberry Lemon Drop or a Mint Basil Lemontini. For a dryer palate, try a Dark and Stormy or a classic Martini.

Local Art is Hopping: Come by for our new exhibit of works by artist David Smith, whose representational style concerns light and its “interplay with the world,” pushing boundaries through an alternative way of looking. David Smith’s paintings will be on view at Claire’s from June 2 until August 4, and you can meet David at our artist reception on Monday June 8 from 4:00 to 6:00.

June 7 marks the season’s first exhibit at White Water Gallery in East Hardwick, entitled “Shadow and Light,” and featuring the work of Carol Drury, Coleen Flanagan, and Nancy Schade. The gallery hosts an opening reception from 4-7. You can also catch “Peep Show,” a photo montage that documents the 60s rock concert scene.

Thank you to all our friends and supporters who stopped by for our first anniversary party. It was a joy to see all of you. If you couldn’t make it we look forward to seeing you again soon.
