BUBBLES (AND OYSTERS)Hog Island bubbles
Nothing beats the end-of-summer heat quite like a cold glass of bubbly and a dozen freshly shucked oysters at Hog Island Oyster Bar.  Sounds like the perfect farewell summer toast, don't you think?
We are all familiar with smoothies, the popular breakfast drinks that utilize fresh fruit, but there is another refreshing fruit drink to try -- the agua fresca. Popular in Mexico and South America, it is enjoyed with meals, or as a healthy thirst quencher. C CASA creates a variety of colorful and revitalizing agua frescas in flavors of strawberry, pineapple or cucumber lime that are delicious accompaniments to C CASA tacos. The name alone sounds refreshing, doesn't it?

SEPTEMBER SPECIALSGott's September specials
Stop by Gott's to try their September specials: a California deluxe burger with a half pound of Niman Ranch beef, bacon, Swiss cheese, arugula, a fried egg, balsamic-glazed onions and mayo on a toasted Italian bun...and for those looking for something lighter, a Green Goddess salad with chopped kale, radicchio and romaine lettuce tossed with green goddess dressing, cucumbers, chickpeas, wheat berries, feta cheese and cherry tomatoes. The ever popular crispy fried zucchini sticks will also stay on the menu through the rest of the month.
With fall approaching, we look forward to long, leisurely Sunday breakfasts where the enticing aroma of fresh coffee rouses you from sleep. Then there is another tantalizing smell -- the one of French toast sizzling in the pan, and you know it is going to be a good day. Cate & Co. suggests its cinnamon raisin bread for making delicious French toast, and serving it with a variety of toppings that each diner can customize to their own taste...melted butter, warm maple syrup, fruit preserves, fresh berries, whipped cream or orange blossom honey...the possibilities are almost endless.
