Latest Updates & Events

We would like to extend an invitation for all to come out and support our Legion and bartenders. The ever-changing health regulations have forced us to run on only one shift a day from (1 pm to 5 pm or later) and our bartenders are doing a great job! As of now, masks are mandatory again unless seated. Although our dartboards and pool table are open, the players must wear their masks while playing.
