Bring a toy, get a complimentary spaghetti dinner at the Honky Tonk Restaurant

BY TERRY GILLIS
For the last seven years, mother and daughter owners, Alice and Jodi Hogarth, have held their own unique Christmas Toy Drive event at the Honky Tonk Restaurant in Bridgenorth.
This year, on Wednesday, December 6, from 4 - 8 diners will be served a full course spaghetti dinner, which includes a Caesar salad, drink and dessert, for the price of one new, unwrapped toy.
Eight years ago Alice and Jodi purchased the Honky Tonk and turned it into a fun and friendly place to hang out, have something to eat and talk.
Many patrons come not just for the full menu, which includes gluten free choices, but for the assortment of antiques on the wall, and Alice’s collection of signs, which she says usually brings a smile to her customers’ face and sometimes makes them giggle.
On Wednesdays, customers can hear a live band at the restaurant and if they’re feeling exceptionally musical, can participate in karaoke to the delight or dismay of other diners.
Alice offers a Senior’s Night every Thursday beginning at 4:00 p.m. Customers have a choice of two meats, their choice of potatoes and veggies, a drink and a dessert, all for $10.99. No I.D. is required.
In addition to the Spaghetti Dinner Toy Drive, Alice and Jodi have locally made fruit cakes --regular, gluten free and peel free-- by Lynn Busato and Aunt Shirley’s shortbread cookies for sale. Aunt Shirley just happens to be Alice’s sister, so it is on good authority that they are great home-made cookies.
Alice’s sister Fae also helps out in the kitchen. Patrons rave about the coconut cream pie, “that is to die for.”
The Honky Tonk is also raffling the cutest bear cub planter to help raise money for the Toy Drive. Tickets are available at the restaurant for $2 each or 3 for $5.
The restaurant is currently operating on winter hours which are 6:30 am to 2:00 pm Sunday to Wednesday, and open Thursday and Friday for dinner.
