Some Things To Think About

Just when we were getting use to the idea that summer was over, bam, the holiday season is here. I don’t know about you but this year has just screamed by. I was just getting use to writing 2008 and we seem to be jumping right to 2010.

With the holiday season here it is time to think about holiday parties. Whether you have a group of 6 people or 60+ Mercy is a perfect venue to entertain your friends, co-workers or clients.

Something to think about that may be very different from what you have done in the past is a wine tasting education class or a food and wine pairing class. This is a fun evening of learning and tasting and giving your friends and co-workers a different experience. In an environment where everyone is watching their spending this can be a great way to do something completely different from what you may have done in the past for a holiday party and keep your costs down AND at the same time give your friends a gift of enhancing their dining experiences for years to come. We are very proud to have several companies returning for the 4th and 5th year in a row to treat their employees to a Mercy experience.

We are also approaching our 7th anniversary in February and as has been the practice of Mercy since we first opened we have stayed with the tradition of changing the menu twice a year. We just launched our latest and I think, best menu so far. I am very proud of the selections and choices we have made available to our guests. If it has been a while since you have visited us, I’d encourage you to stop by and sample some of the new menu items. You will not be disappointed.

Speaking of anniversaries! Our sister company, Sebastian’s Closet is celebrating its 30th birthday!! Now that is longevity!! Stop by and say hi to Tim and crew and wish them a happy 30th!

Now, while we are on sister companies: TBarM Racquet Club is pleased to be bringing Pete Sampras to Dallas to play in a tennis shout out against Todd Martin, recently retired top 10 player in the world.

Pete will be playing at the Dr. Pepper Center in Frisco this Friday, Nov. 6 at 7pm. Pete’s Grand Slam World record of 13 titles was recently broken by Roger Federer. If you have not seen Pete play up close and personal this is your chance. Treat yourself to something completely different on a Friday night. Mercy is one of the sponsors of this event and we hope you can join us, tip a glass of vino and watch two of the best players of our time battle it out!

The happiest of holidays to everyone and it is our wish at Mercy that you have a healthy and prosperous New Year.
