sunday gospel brunch at halls chophouse

Guest blogger, Andrea Turner, recently enjoyed the fabulous gospel brunch at Halls Chophouse with her family. She was kind enough to snap some pics and share a visual of what she called “soulful, lively entertainment and a treat for all”. Even the teenage boys are asking for a return visit. They serve a full bar and supply live entertainment every Sunday 10:00 am – 2 pm. This is an experience not to be missed!
