Been snugged yet? Snugging is a happening event in our own Black Bear Pub, and it’s not as risqué as it sounds, unless you make it so. With the addition of handsome wooden booths in the Black Bear, folks are getting a lot cozier as they enjoy tasty pub grub. 

Look for more new and exciting changes at our lakeside clubhouse – springtime always brings them. Come see what’s new!

Open Mic Night

Bill Pound will happily hold the mic for you when you make your debut at the pub’s Open Mic Night on Monday, March 12. Mondays take some getting used to since the pub is usually closed that evening, but wander into the Black Bear around 5:00 p.m. on March 12 and you’ll be treated to a talent show like you’ve never seen before! There’s no cover charge and plenty of menu choices to tempt you. On most Friday nights in March, there will be live music in the Black Bear Pub to welcome the weekend.

Happy Birthday to You
We all have them, so let’s make it a party! Big Canoe residents celebrating a birthday in March are invited to snug at the pub on Sunday, March 18 from 5:00–8:00 p.m. for a free birthday dinner!  Reservations are not required. You’ll get a choice of special dinners and unless requested by your friends and family, there won’t be a birthday parade in your honor. We promise! 

Celebrating St. Patrick’s Day
The wearing of the green comes one day early this year. All Big Canoe residents are invited to party hearty on Friday, March 16. Starting at noon with the raising of the Irish flag and the tapping of the first keg, a golf tourney for all Big Canoe duffers will follow with plenty of shenanigans on the course. At 5:00 p.m. the Irish flag will be lowered and a party flag will take its place. 

Listen for the strains of a lone bagpiper as he leads the Irish, both authentic and wannabes, to the banks of Lake Sconti for an amazing “greening ceremony.” Clubhouse doors will open at 6:00 p.m. for a community-wide celebration of all things Celtic. Enjoy a full buffet of Irish fare—from corned beef and cabbage to colcannon, there’s something to make Irish eyes smile. The day’s events are sponsored by the Bear Society.

Community Dinners
Want to be the “host with the most” and be declared Party Planner of the Year? It’s easier than you think. Our wildly popular Community Dinners need hosts to select dinner themes and menus for an evening of friendly fun. Held on the last Monday evening of the month, each dinner is made special by input from residents or clubs and organizations. It won’t cost you a thing and you’ll be honored at the head table. 

Hosting a Community Dinner is a great way to highlight the foods of your heritage or share your favorite recipes. We invite you to concoct fun themes and share your inspired tastes with Big Canoe. You won’t have to wash one dish either!

Thursday Night International Dinners

Each month Clubhouse guests will be spirited to a faraway destination to experience exotic and enticing cuisines. International fare is now offered on Thursday evenings in addition to the regular Clubhouse menu. In January, sunny Italy was featured and February brought an array of Peruvian dishes. This month diners will take a culinary tour of Greece. Three courses are featured – salad, entrée, and dessert. Laugh in the face of howling March winds as you escape to epicurean adventures.

Movie and Draft Night
One lone guy showed up at Chicks at the Flicks a couple months ago and asked, “Where’s the guy stuff?” Welcome to Movie and Draft Night, dude!  Movie buffs of both genders are invited to view the classic film, The Manchurian Candidate on Thursday, March 22, at 5:30 p.m. in The Dogwood Room. The night’s menu will include wings, burgers, fish & chips, and chicken tenders ordered from the menu. Pitchers of beer will be specially priced and bowls of popcorn will be passed.

Murder Mystery Dinners
If you missed the murder at Key West’s Last Stop Margarita Bar in January, get your Sherlock Holmes deerstalker ready—there’s more murder and mayhem ahead! Sixty-six characters (some decidedly caricatures) filled The Clubhouse, all in tropical costumes. From Ernie Hemingway’s cat caretaker to a tousled tattooed beach bum, players tried to solve who killed that scoundrel Karl Virgil. Watch for posters announcing your next chance to sleuth. 

Sunday Breakfast
It’s no secret the Sunday breakfast menu at the Black Bear Pub will make anybody rise and shine. Served from 10:00 a.m. until 1:00 p.m., guests can enjoy traditional foods to break the fast, but there are always a few surprises to make Sundays special—can you say Lobster Eggs Benedict?

You’ll probably want to know more about all these offerings. An email to Becca Weck at bweck@bigcanoepoa.org will get you plenty of answers and a reservation, too.
