Sweet Dreams of Youth

Local Food: Remember those summer days of your youth, when you refreshed with the fizzy sweetness of a root beer float? Starting this week, we'll bring back those bygone days in a cool pint glass filled with black raspberries from Hardwick's Larry Brochu, strawberries from Hazendale Farm and Pete's Greens, and raspberries from Jen Boucher, blended together and mixed with vanilla ice cream from Strafford Organic Creamery. To finish, Steven adds our homemade dry seltzer to put the pop in the fizz without the syrupy sweetness of root beer, and yellow plums from Champlain Orchards are sprinkled on top to add a punch of sunshine. It's the perfect balance of summer sweet fruit, cool ice-cream, and bubbles. And you can add a small shot of your favorite spirit (over 21 only, of course).

Around the Galaxy: From the newly revised classic Putting Food By to the brand new Put 'em Up! A Comprehensive Home Preserving Guide for the Creative Cook, Galaxy has a shelf full of books to help you preserve the summer bounty through the winter. Please join us for our next event, Tuesday, July 27th, when we hear Garret Keizer discuss his new book, The Unwanted Sound of Everything We Want.

Music Notes: Flatpick guitarist and Radio Ranger Mark Struhsacker returns Thursday, July 22 at 8:00. Support local music and enjoy his traditional fiddle tunes and bluegrass instrumentals.

Local Events: Join High Mowing Seeds on their monthly Trials Field Walk on Wednesday, July 21 from 4-6. This tour will focus on cucumbers, beets, carrots, cabbages, herbs, snap beans, okra, artichokes and fava beans.

Local Art: We welcome an exhibit of works by Vermont artist Vanessa Compton's July 20 through Monday, October 4. Vanessa incorporates the subconscious realm of dreams and nightmares into her artwork. Join us for an artist reception at Claire's on Monday, July 26 from 4-6.

Reminders: We are open daily after 2:30 for coffee, bar service, and baked goods, with dinner reservations available from 5-9 (until 8 on Sunday). We serve our special Blunch menu Sundays from 11-2. Claire's is closed every Wednesday.

We appreciate it when you reserve a table with us, as it helps us plan a relaxed and hospitable experience for you and all our guests. To show our appreciation, when you call, email, or stop by to make a reservation, you will be entered into our weekly drawing for a $20 gift card for your next visit.
