Their attention to detail comes through in their real fruit soaked vodkas and liqueurs, and whiskies that have rested in oak barrels until they mature into a rich aged spirit.

Menu highlights include: Bulgogi Steamed Bun with Pickled Onion & Fresh Ginger paired with Soju Sparkling, feat. Finger Lakes Distilling Soju; Roasted Sweet Potato with Chèvre, Arbor Hill Balsamic Reduction, Radish & Sprouts paired with Concord Cosmopolitan with a Twist, feat.

The Ride Down Mt. Morgan
8:00 PM - 10:00 PM
Seneca Community Players presents The Ride Down Mt. Morgan
The Ride Down Mt. Morgan, written by one of America’s greatest and most renowned playwrights, Arthur Miller, opening later this month, will be Seneca Community Players fourth production of their 2016 season. 
The story revolves around Lyman Felt played by Jack Sherman from Ithaca. As a dynamic and vigorous man who has it all - a thriving insurance business, fame as a poet, and children who adore him, Lyman’s desires have allowed him to believe that loving and marrying two separate women at the same time is the kind of love that is totally truthful.  With two families, one in New York City and the other in Elmira, NY, he has been able to keep his two lives from intertwining.  That is until the day he finds himself lying in a hospital bed, recovering from a terrible car crash and his two wives finally cross paths.  
The restrained, conservative Theodora (wife #1) played by Carrie Massey from Waterloo, and the independent, opinionated Leah (wife #2) played by Sarah Anson from Syracuse, are shocked by Lyman's bigamy and justification of his actions.  A whirlwind of hard truths and painful memories is created into which Lyman's daughter Bessie, played by Lisa Rood from Cayuga, his best friend Tom, played by Eric Jansen from Clifton Springs, and even his nurse played by Anna Post from Scipio Center are drawn.  
Following the chain of events that lead up to this day, Lyman is seen for who he truly is, a selfish man willing to take, while others around him are willing to give and turn a blind's eye to suspicions. In the end, Lyman is left by those who once loved him, and he must face the loneliness, he now knows is his real true self. 
 “Over the past three and a half weeks, I've been privileged to help a talented cast bring to life some of the strangest and richest text in American theater.” Said Jamie Bruno, the play’s director from Cayuga, “It is my devout hope that anyone seeing Mt Morgan will have something to ponder for weeks afterward.” 
The show’s staff includes Producer - Jack Sherman, Stage Manager - Bobby-Jo Bly-Owens, Publicist - Susie Cornett,  Set Designer - Navroz Dabu, Costumer -  Deborah Bly, Technical Director - Eric Jansen, Master Carpenter - Bob Bruno, Graphic Artist - Tamaralee Shutt, Lighting Designer - Bryson Frederick, Sound Designer - Stephen Beals, Lighting Operator - Anita Grosso, and Lynn Patti as Head of House.
