Twenty-eight local good witches gathered at Patti’s Main Street Coffee House Sunday, Oct. 25, to partake in the first annual Witches High Tea. The witches were decked out in their witchiest finery, including boas, fancy striped socks, authentic witchy shoes, and all kinds of lovely pointed hats.

Patti’s staff members Loraine McNeal and Winnie Johnson baked yummy sweet breads and sweets, and Patti’s staff whipped up wonderful tiny fancy sandwiches and some very tasty homemade pumpkin butter. A pot of bubbling witchy brew added another level of spookiness to the afternoon. Patti’s collection of fancy china cups completed the high tea scene at this fun event.

Winnie, who previously lived in Germany and who has visited England, explained the high tea process.

The witches all behaved themselves, with nary a spell performed.

Patti offers more high teas, so check in at the restaurant for the next planned event. The staff is considering a Valentine’s Day theme.

“We had a howling good time at Patti’s Witches High Tea,” said Edie Goldman.

Bill Pugh, Patti’s better half, is thrilled to have his dream of a Cowboy Steak House come true as a popular dinner option in New Castle. Patti’s Main Street Coffee House offers the Cowboy Steak House from 6-9 p.m. on Thursday, Friday and Saturday nights. Steaks, chicken and salmon are on the menu, with leg of lamb, elk steak and prime rib on special nights.

For a party of six or more, reservations are appreciated. Call 984-9115..

Patti’s has all the paperwork in to the town of New Castle and the State of Colorado for its anticipated liquor license, which they hope to have in place by Christmas.

Stop by on Wednesdays and Sundays for Patti’s luscious pumpkin waffles.

The holiday season is getting really close, and ladies, going to the second annual Antique and Craft sale at the old Antlers Lane Schoolhouse is a great way to get into the mood. The Antique and Craft sale will be held from 4-8 p.m. Friday, Nov. 13 and from 8 a.m. to 4 p.m. Saturday, Nov. 14 at Antlers Lane, west of Silt off Highway 6.

The event features antiques, funky finds, Gypsy Chicks creations, barnwood furniture, pottery, unique and original artworks, hand-sewn items, gift bags and refreshments. You’ll find something for at least one hard-to-please person on your list. Don’t miss it!

Bobby Bunn is now running Pete’s Place, which is the former New Castle Cafe. The cafe is serving Seattle’s Best Coffee along with its regular menu and homemade pastries by Faith. Pam is back on Saturday and Sunday, and the restaurant is open seven days per week.

Happy Halloween to all the kids out there. Hope the snow clears out and the weather cooperates.

Remember to turn the clocks behind Saturday night or early Sunday morning for Daylight Savings Time. Enjoy!
