April Update

Hello everyone! As you most likely already know, our closure has been extended by the Governor until May 4th. Unfortunately that means that the Commander Golf Tournament, which was supposed to take place on April 25th, has been cancelled for this year. Sadly, we also have to cancel our Customer Appreciation Day on May 2nd. For the past couple years, this event has been on the same day as the Breezy Point Airport’s Aviation Day, and we’ve just heard that has been cancelled as well.

But here’s some good news to hopefully brighten your day! The band that was scheduled to play at the Commander this weekend is going to be steaming from our Facebook page this Friday night. That’s right – “Shirts & Skins” will be live-streaming a show on the Commander Facebook page at 8:30pm on Friday, April 10th! So grab a drink, move the living room furniture so you have plenty of dancing space and join us for a Friday night party with “Shirts & Skins”!

Make plans to join us at the Commander for New Year’s Eve! Our dinner specials are Walleye (broiled or fried), 8oz Sirloin and Shrimp Scampi, or 8oz Sirloin and Lobster Tail, for $39.95 each.  All entrees include your choice of potato or wild rice, salad, rolls, dessert, champagne and party favors.  And Vintage Raggs will be here to help welcome in 2019!  Call us for reservations 218-562-4198.
