Thanks to the owners of Cavallario's Steak and Seafood, several pieces of medieval inspired artwork have been added to the collection of arms and armor at Singer Castle on Dark Island.  They will be hung in various places around the castle.  One piece showing jousting knights is now on display over the buffet in the castle’s Dining Room.
