May 18 Happy Birthday, Buckhorn Inn! This birthday dinner is inspired by the 1950s and ’60s when the outdoor patio and barbeque became a staple of American life.

A live band will play as you enjoy BBQ beef and pork, hamburgers, hotdogs, birthday cake and all the trimmings. Wine and beer will be available. $35 per person
