Today was the first time I had the Red Hat Ladies at the Inn. Pam, the hostess for the month decided to have them meet here instead of having them to her own home. She did prepare the food and I helped serve and provide them with drinks. After I gave them a tour or the Inn and showed them the guest rooms and collections.
We will be helping Pam next month with her Butterfly group. I don't think I am ready to "join" the red hat club yet, even though I qualify....but it was fun having them here today!
The Downtown Statesville Streetscape is almost complete. New stores have been moving in, The Wine Maestro has moved to Broad Street. Now my guests can walk two blocks away to sample wine on Friday night, or buy a bottle to enjoy back at the Inn. New stores are slowly taking up residence in storefronts which have been vacant since I moved here in 2004.
We have a variety of great restaurants, shops and interesting architecture for everyone to enjoy. If you plan on coming to Statesville, be sure to save some time to check out the new downtown.
