    KastNet drew a record crowd of 68 to the January luncheon, and just as the last time, the food and desserts, served buffet style, were wonderful.
    Our menu included egg rolls, buffalo chicken dip and chips, salad, pasta Alfredo, grilled chicken and bourbon chicken which was a special treat since this dish is only served at the restaurant on Fridays, bread sticks, yummy assorted cupcakes and drinks.
    Ashley set up in record time, and everything was set to go as our first guests arrived.
