Time for a Food Revolution

Celebrate Bastille Day with Local Food: Tuesday July 14, the French “fête” the 220th anniversary of the storming of the Bastille, which was the turning point in the Revolution. At Claire’s, we’ll mark the French national holiday with our own localvore Revolution à la française. Enjoy classic Steak Frites with pastured beef from Snug Valley Farm, a glass of Shelburne Vineyard’s crisp Rosé, followed by Steven’s creamy maple crème brûlee. At the bar, follow the Tour de France on the flatscreen, as a French competitor is expected to win the day.

Local Beverages: Summer Sunday and Monday bar specials, and every day coffee and bar service after 2:30. In addition to the Tour de France, we run Red Sox games live from NECN.

Around the Galaxy: Mark Rudd, leader of the 1968 student uprising at Columbia University, will visit The Galaxy Bookshop on Wednesday, July 15 to share his story, as told in his book, Underground: My Life with SDS and the Weathermen.

Local Food Art: Marie LePre’ Grabon launched her new chocolate bonbons with a facebook page recently, and now you can buy the sweets at Buffalo Mountain. You’ll definitely want a few.

Thursday Music: Jeremy Raboin is back by popular demand. Come by to see why he has been one of our favorites. You can check out his music on myspace.

Starting this week, the Craftsbury Chamber players are back for their Thursday night performance series at the Hardwick Town House. Their complete schedule is available at their website.

Midsummer is upon us. Stop by to cool down with some good food and drink for those dog days.
