We could call the thurs afternoon run the "Beer run". Or "Paradise point run"

Their fb page says a new owner took over a year ago and made a ton of renovations. The food looks really good.

The Pavilion by the pool (which is across from the lodge) was really nice. It had a bar that could also be a buffet, sinks refrigerator. Also the building had nice and clean restrooms.
