Live Jazz Grill on 16 March
 
We like live music out here at the Brickyard, no Muzak for us. We have a whole series of Saturday live jazz grills mapped out for 2019 and the first one will be 16 March. Come out to the Wall and stay for a dinner before heading back. Or stay with us for the night. Or stay in one of the other local inns but come on over for our grilled-to-order all-you-can-eat meal. Learn all about it.
 
 
 
 
 
Dine at Our Partner’s Table on 23 March
 
This year we will continue our series of dinners created by executive chef Randhir Singh and hosted by Jim & Liang. Each dinner is for a single table for twelve and includes cocktails and a four course menu with wines. The menus are different for each Partner’s Table and are not announced in advance but we always can cater to food preferences and allergies. Reservations required. Learn about the series and mark you calendar.
 
 
 
 
Village Community Center
 
In case any of you were wondering what Jim has been working on lately… This perspective view shows a community center for a village near the Three Gorges in Hubei Province that Spear Designs was commissioned to create as part of a project to plan and create a living tourism destination.

Cooking with Randhir
 
Randhir’s been busy in our bakery and created this lemon fruit cake for our guests. It’s deceptively simple and is perfect with coffee or tea. Make it at home.




 
 
 
 
Sustainability in Action
 
Plastic is not part of nature. It doesn’t fit into any ecosystem. Nothing can eat it, so when it goes in the trash, it never goes away. But in the Brickyard we are moving away from plastic one step at a time. The above picture shows our biodegradable paper takeaway containers and paper straws wrapped in paper.
