March to Fox & Goose for breakfast, lunch, dinner, beer, and music!

Alright, here we go again. Month after month we fill your face with all this great stuff. You keep coming back and then we do it all over again. I'll try to write something interesting just in case anyone is reading this. If you are, then tap your forehead 3 times with your index finger and say, "I need to go to Fox & Goose and belly up to the bar, because I love it there and they love me." Now get on down here and drink some beer before closing time! Everyone should drink beer and listen to music at Fox & Goose. Music is just as important as beer and food. Anyhow, here's what's going on at your Goose:
