3 Things Most Families Do on a Saturday Instead of Visiting Mars

wings-of-eagles-discovery

What do most families do on Saturdays? While every family is different, you can pretty much guarantee that you probably have these three things to get accomplished:

Grocery Shopping – There’s nothing like spending a Saturday looking for food for your family for the remainder of the week, right? It’s time-consuming, but it has to be done.

Laundry – Ah, the never-ending pile of laundry. It can really take over a Saturday if you let it. Again, it’s time-consuming, but it has to be done.

Cleaning the House – Saturday is probably the day you find everything your kids lost during the week, right? Even though you’d rather be doing just about anything else, sometimes you just have to clean so you can maintain your sanity during the rest of the week.

Wouldn’t it be great to do something different on a Saturday? We have the best idea!

On October 11, 2014, Wings of Eagles Discovery Center is having an awesome event for kids during the day. It’s called Mission to Mars, and it features plenty of great activities for your kids. They can meet some real Martians, take part in a costume contest, get their faces painted, and even try out the flight simulator. This all takes place from 10-2. When it comes time to stop and grab a bite to eat, you can head right over to Sweet-N-Saucy for a delicious lunch, which is perfect because you won’t be far from the fun.

In the evening, the adults can come back for our Gala event at 6pm. We’ll learn about 10 Years on Mars, with a fascinating presentation of how far space exploration has come in the last decade. The menu has been planned, and you’ll enjoy a wonderful dinner while you take part in beer and wine tasting with some of the area’s best music from Joe Cavallaro and his Dixieland Band.

Why spend another boring Saturday at home? Sprinkle in some fun and join us on October 11, 2014!

ID-10067127

Baby showers are so much fun, aren’t they?

Baby showers are a wonderful opportunity to get together with close friends and family to celebrate the arrival of a new baby. If you’re working on planning a baby shower for someone close to you, you want everything to be perfect. The decorations have to be just right, and the food has to be great too.

Here at Sweet-N-Saucy, we love baby showers, and we’d love to help you plan one for that someone special in your life. We’ve put together three good reasons to have your friend or family member’s baby shower right here at Sweet-N-Saucy.

1. We provide a comfortable, cozy atmosphere

Yes, we’re located in the Wings of Eagles Discover Center in Big Flats, NY, but we love creating that cozy atmosphere you’re looking for. We have plenty of room, so your party can be as large or as small as you need it to be. The Wings of Eagles many displays also sets the stage for the perfect theme if the new mom is expecting a little boy! Not to mention, because we’re in Big Flats, we’re very conveniently located, no matter where you’re coming from – Elmira, Horseheads, Corning…we’re just a short drive away.

2. The food is amazing

We don’t mind bragging about our food because we know that it’s the best in the area. We will sit down with you and create a menu that will cater to everyone’s tastes. With so many choices, and such a huge variety, you won’t have any trouble planning the menu. Once that’s done, you can leave the rest up to us.

3. Our track record speaks for itself

When you’re choosing a caterer for any event, whether it is a baby shower, wedding reception, or another big event, you want to work with someone who has a proven track record in the industry. Here at Sweet-N-Saucy, we’ve been providing catering services to the Elmira area and beyond for almost 20 years, and we’re still going strong!

A baby shower is such a precious event for a new mom. We’d love to help you make it truly memorable for her, and for her friends and family as well. If you’d like more information about how we can help you put on a great baby shower, please contact us today!

Please Support Small Businesses During The Holidays

ID-100122506

It’s the holidays, and with Christmas right around the corner, shoppers are bustling around, trying to get everything they’ll need for the big day. Everyone is doing their last minute party-planning, and here at Sweet-N-Saucy, we’re busier than ever, working on fulfilling all of our customers’ wish lists for their holiday parties.

As you’re shopping, whether it’s the stores you choose to visit, or the restaurants where you choose to have your lunch, we’d like you to remember how important it is to support small businesses in the Horseheads and Big Flats area. Small businesses are the heartbeat of our community, and they help to keep us growing.

When you support small businesses, you’re keeping your hard earned money right here, within our very own community. When small businesses grow, the economy where we live grows too. That is so important.

Of course, there’s also something to be said about what you get when you visit a small business like Sweet-N-Saucy during the holidays, too. If you’ve gone out for a Christmas lunch at one of the surrounding chain restaurants recently, you probably weren’t very happy with your experience. At many of them, the food certainly looks better (and bigger!) in the pictures than it does when it’s actually delivered to your table. You may have also gotten the sense that the service at some of these places isn’t exactly spectacular.

Things are very different, here at Sweet-N-Saucy.

When you pay us a visit, whether you’re out shopping, you want to catch a quick lunch with a colleague, you’ll be treated like a friend from the moment you walk through our door, here at the Wings of Eagles Discovery Center. You’ll receive prompt attention, and once you take a glance at our huge lunch menu, well, you’ll probably take a while to decide what you’d like to have. However, once you get your meal, you’ll be impressed from beginning to end.

Be sure to stop in soon and try one of our delicious hot soups, which are perfect on these cold, winter days. If you’re planning a party and you haven’t found anyone to handle the food, we’d love to help you with that too. Our catering service is out of this world, and you’ll be so happy you choose a small business to handle your party rather than a business who isn’t as focused on your happiness.

Supporting small businesses this time of year is so important. Why not stop in and give Sweet-N-Saucy a try? We’re eager to see you, and you’ll be eager to come back for more.

Homemade is always the best, and when you have lunch with us, you’ll enjoy a wonderful time dining in the Wings of Eagles Cafe. Not to mention, you’ll always get a complimentary chocolate chip cookie to finish off your delicious meal.

What are you waiting for? We’re looking forward to seeing you for lunch really soon.
