Local Food: As summer heats up, so does the grill, and the juicy, flavorful and tender leg of lamb from Winding Brook Farm in Morrisville sizzles. Steven provides the classic complement to the uniquely mild flavor of the lamb with mint from his own garden, mixed with sage and walnut to create a twist on pesto. Creamy polenta from Butterworks Farm accompanies the lamb, as well as a warm slaw of Napa cabbage, turnip, radish and garlic scape, all from Craftsbury, to accompany your portion from the succulent leg of lamb.
At the Bar: As the holiday weekend approaches, remember our drink specials every Sunday and Monday. For Sunday, July 3, we offer a $2.50 pint of Wolaver's Wildflower Wheat, a $4 glass of East Shore Vineyard Traminette or Lincoln Peak Marquette. Our Cilantro Margarita features Milagro 100% agave tequila, cilantro from Riverside Farm, lime juice and a splash of Cointreau, specially priced at $5. Enjoy a cocktail before or after you watch the fireworks in Greensboro at the Four Corners Ball Field beginning at dusk.
Beginning July 6, we will be open seven days a week for the months of July and August
Around the Galaxy: On Tuesday Edward Hoagland comes to Galaxy to discuss and sign Sex and the River Styx. The essays in his latest book explore themes of aging, love, and sex in deeply personal, often surprising ways. Hoagland's prose shines with the energy and intelligence that has characterized his work for decades and the wisdom of a man whose curiosity about the world has given him, and us, a lifetime of stories. Come hear for yourself, and celebrate the man John Updike called "the best essayist of my generation" on Tuesday at 7.
Music Notes: Singer/Songwriters Don & Jenn join us Thursday, June 30 at 7:30. The duo features guitar and vocals, and perform jazz and folk inspired originals and covers.
Local Events: Circus Smirkus kicks off their 2011 Big Top Tour in Greensboro on Sunday, July 3 with two shows at 1:00 and 6:00. The theme this year is "Frontpage Follies: Big Top Big News!" performed by a company of talented Circus Troupers, ages 10-18.
Reminders: We are open daily after 2:30 for coffee and espresso drinks, bar service, and baked goods, and free WiFi, with dinner reservations available from 5-9, Sundays from 5-8. We serve our special Blunch menu Sundays from 11-2. Claire's is closed this Wednesday. We appreciate it when you use cash or a check- credit card companies charge us a fee that really adds up.
