Local Food: Is there anything better than corn on the cob, pulled right from the stalk and cooked just for a moment so the butter will melt? You've probably already taken a few bites of the sweet and succulent kernels. Steven takes this basic goodness and amps up the volume. The corn comes to us from Riverside Farm, and each cob is roasted and then grilled whole to add a touch of the open fire. Garlicky aioli, with garlic from Rebel Pine Farm, adds a zip, along with a sprinkling of cilantro from Riverside and parsley and sage from Provender Farm. Coomersdale cheese from Bonnieview Farm (recent award winners at the American Cheese Society Competition for their Ben Nevis) is shaved on top of the corn cob, giving you the first sharp kick and a hint of nuttiness.

At the Bar:
Stop by for our Sunday and Monday drink specials. This Sunday, August 21 we offer a $2.50 pint of Rock Art Whitetail Ale, a $4 glass of Boyden Valley Seyval Blanc or Big Barn Red. The Berry Bellini is offered for $5, made with sparkling wine and blueberries from Agape Hill Farm.

Around the Galaxy: Galaxy is gearing up for David Budbill who will appear on Tuesday, August 23rd to read poems from his new book Happy Life. The celebration begins at 7PM and is free and open to all.

Music Notes: Cosa Buena make their long awaited return this Thursday, August 18 at 7:30. Enjoy their acoustic music with a gentle Latin-jazz feel.

Local Events:
Kingdom Farm and Food Days, a celebration of Vermont food and agriculture, is this weekend, August 20 and 21. Events include a bike tour of area farms with the Craftsbury Outdoor Center, a pig roast dinner on Saturday at Pete's Greens, a tour of the High Mowing Seeds trials garden, a tasting of some of Vermont's finest produce prepared by the New England Culinary Institute on Sunday, and much more. This community-wide and family-friendly event is free, with suggested donations or small fees to some of the exclusive events.

Reminders: We appreciate it when you use cash or a check - credit card companies charge us a fee that really adds up.
