Monday Motivation
“A real friend is one who walks in when the rest of the world walks out” — Walter Winchell

A man is walking down a dirt road and not watching where he is going when suddenly he falls in a deep hole.  He tries to get out but the walls are too steep.

A doctor walks by and the man yells out, “Hey Doc, I’ve fallen into this hole and I can’t get out. Can you help me?”  The doctor writes a prescription, tosses it down the hole, and walks on.

A while later, a Priest walks by and the man yells out, “Hey Father, I’ve fallen into this hole and I can’t get out. Can you help me?”  The Priest says a prayer for the man and walks on.

By now, the man is quite frustrated when a friend happens to walk by.  “Hey friend,” the man yells.  “I’ve fallen into this hole and I can’t get out. Can you help me?”  The friend jumps into the hole, to the man’s great surprise.  

“That’s just fine… now we’re both in this hole.”  The friend replies, “Yes, but I’ve been in this hole before and I know the way out.”

If you have even one friend in your life that will “jump in the hole” with you, you’re a rich and blessed person.  Are you willing to jump in a hole for anyone?

Tuesday Dinner
Tomorrow night… Roasted chicken with mashed potatoes and gravy, corn, and a roll, for just $10!  Sounds like a winner to me.  

Plus, live music by Restless Natives. 

Halloween Dance Party Friday Night
Restless Natives will also be the band this coming Friday night at our Halloween dinner and dance.  Dress up in your favorite Halloween costume and dance till the ghouls get home!

I’m told there will be prizes for the best costume.

New Year’s Eve Information
If you haven’t heard about our NYE Celebration, here are the facts:

This year, our New Year’s Eve is actually two celebrations back-to-back.  This will be the biggest event of our year and reservations are needed.

The First Celebration – 5-9pm
The first celebration will begin at 5pm for those who wish to celebrate the 9pm east coast new year.  Yes, you can stay past 9pm, if you’d like.

Dinner will include an appetizer, your choice of either Barron of Beef or Chicken Piccata, each served with side dishes, and dessert.  Dinner will be served at approximately 5:30pm starting with the appetizer portion.

The band for the first seating will be American Roots, always a Lodge favorite.  American Roots will be playing from 6pm through the east coast new year at 9pm pacific time.

The Second Celebration – 9pm to 1am
For those who plan on staying up past midnight, we’ve got one of the best dance/party bands in San Diego… Urban Gypsys!  They will be picking up where American Roots left off, taking it up a notch, and playing us into the new year!

The 9pm folks can arrive early if you’d like to dance and order a drink, or two.

Dinner for the second seating will include various items served from both our hot and cold buffets.  We will have a nice selection for you.  The buffets will be available at approximately 9:15pm to 11pm.  We’ll also be serving breakfast burritos at 12:30am.

11 O’clock Toast
At 11pm, we’ll have a brief break in the action for our very moving Elks Eleven O’clock Toast.  

Early Seating Prices
$60 per person if you pay by November 30. The price changes to $65 per person on December 1.

If you RSVP for the early seating, feel free to stay after 9pm and enjoy the later band.  

NOTE: 1) You are reserving seats, not a table.  There is limited space and every seat will be sold.  2) Early seating guests will not have access to the hot and cold buffets.

Late Seating Prices
$40 per person if you pay by November 30. The price changes to $45 per person on December 1.

If you RSVP for the late seating, you’re welcome to arrive before 9pm and enjoy the early band.

NOTE: 1) You are reserving seats, not a table.  There is limited space and every seat will be sold.  2) Late seating guests will have access to the hot and cold buffets at roughly 9:15pm, but bar service will be available.

Social Quarters – Overflow Seating
Our Social Quarters area will also have reserved tables, however, their view of the stages will be somewhat obscured.  Elks members not wishing to be a part of the celebration will be seated at the “bar top” or in the Game Room, as seating allows, or outside on the heated patio.  There will be no food service without a celebration ticket.

Waiting List
Once the preferred and overflow seating is sold out, the best we will be able to do is enter names on a waiting list.  Again, don’t get caught short.  Get your reservations in ASAP.

Members Only
Elk events like our New Year’s Eve celebration is for BPOElks members, their families, and guests.  If you’d like information on becoming an Elk please contact our office at 760-724-1968.

Parking
Our parking is very limited so carpooling and ride-share (Uber or Lyft) is highly recommended… especially ride-share.

Have a great week, friends!
