Wine Up Your Week –  Mondays & Tuesdays

The start to every wine lovers week just got a whole lot better…While our regular wine list is a great value (bottle prices are only marked up one time instead of the industry standard of 2-3 X), we will be featuring special bottles at truly spectacular pricing on Mondays and Tuesdays.  

What’s spectacular, you ask?  Try LESS THAN HALF their normal restaurant price!

BTW, did you know that we can re-cork any bottle you haven’t finished and send it home with you?  Since our bottle pricing is only 1X markup, and our glass pricing is bottle cost, it is ALWAYS a better deal to buy the bottle if you think you (or your party) will order two or more glasses of that wine.


Stout Fest 2019 – Sunday, November 3rd, 3:00 – 8:00 pm

As always, we’ll have live music and a limited menu of beer-centric Rover faves, plus all 12 taps dedicated to the very best stouts on the market.

Lineup:  Great Lakes 30th Anniversary barrel aged oyster stout; Braxton Brewing Mandarin Dark Charge; Prairie Birthday Bomb; Brewfist Grappa Barrel aged Spaghetti Western; Founders CBS (Canadian Breakfast Stout); 3 Floyds Blot out the Sun;  Stone Woot Stout; West 6th Lizard Ears; Bells Brewing Cherry Vanilla Stout; Milewide Rover Dessert Stout; Greenbush Brewing Delusional Cream Stout; and Guinness


OFF THE BEATEN TRACK TOURS, Hosted by Michael & Siobhan Reidy

Ireland’s Southern Counties, October 1 – 12, 2019

Scotland, March 31 – April 11, 2020   SOLD OUT

Fall 2020, Ireland (a NEW itinerary featuring the northern counties)

Every spring and fall we go “off-the-beaten-track” in Ireland or Scotland and have A LOT of fun in the process.  If you want to kiss the Blarney Stone, look for leprechauns, and spend your nights at tourist-only pubs, we are NOT the tour for you. Unlike most group tours, we offer:

  • Small group size (30 maximum), allowing us to do things that the large groups just can’t…like visit real pubs and restaurants rather than tourist mills
  • Lodging at charming, small hotels that are both high quality and well located….and that don’t usually accept groups
  • A minimum of two nights in each hotel, so you don’t spend your vacation packing and unpacking, AND so we can get to know the villages and towns we stop in.  
  • Reasonable start times….Most tours have you on the bus by 7:00 or 8:00 am, but we say who wants to be up before dawn on vacation?  We usually start the day at 9:00 am (after a leisurely breakfast)
  • Free time. Whether it’s a lazy morning or a couple of hours in the afternoon, we give you time to explore your own interests, AND we provide guides to each place we stop in so you’ll have a heads up on the best shopping, sightseeing and pubs/restaurants
  • Sites and sights that the other tours don’t (or can’t) include, like the stunning Beara Peninsula, a visit with the eccentric owner of one of Ireland’s most haunted castles, or Sunday lunch in a beautiful country house hotel
  • Several nights in the enchanting County Clare (Michael’s home county)…many tours race through Clare with a quick stop at the (often fogged-in) Cliffs of Moher, but we prefer to hike the mysterious Burren region, visit the gorgeous and historic Loop Head peninsula, and boat across the mouth of the Shannon to Scattery Island, an early Viking stronghold that’s also home to one of Ireland’s few intact Round Towers the remains of a 6th Century monastery, a famine village, and much more.  Plus, we eat at some of Michael and Siobhan’s favorite small local pubs and restaurants, AND spend our nights in the lively (and very musical) county town of Ennis.
