Vampires at Hammond Castle

Hi Joey,

I haven’t seen any press on this, so I thought you might want to let people know that the new residents of Hammond Castle are looking to have guests for dinner — literally!  The Castle is open this weekend and next for a bloody good time!

Just a note to those who go – parking seems to be an issue, so for everyone’s safety please park at Stage Fort Park (Free!) and take the free shuttle to the castle.
