Neal Chandek Birthday Bash with the Transfer House Band

Tuesday nights at Transfer are known for often having multiple birthdays in celebration at any given time. We don't know who else will be in the B-day mode, but our fearless band leader, Neal Chandek, will be bringing in his new year while killin the keys. Look for many special guests who will be on hand to celebrate Neal's ?? birthday (we really don't know how many years he has under his belt).

HAPPY BIRTHDAY NEAL!

As always, Tuesdays at Transfer mean half priced vino by the bottle.
