What days do they do the manager reception? Staying a Saturday-Monday for Christmas.
Friday night. We have stayed there before and they had the reception both Friday and Saturday.
I think it was the weekdays. Weekends there are many local brew places to go and they will provide shuttle service to Portsmouth or other nearby brewery's if you are worried about driving.
I think you're out of luck. This summer they did the receptions Monday through Thursday (business traveler nights).
