Fall is definitely in the air, but with the weather today nearing 90 degrees, I'm dreaming of an Indian summer.  The deck is still open and we'll keep it that way as long as the weather permits!  What an amazing summer we had.  We fed 19,231 (no, that is not a typo!) people in July and August...that is just mind boggling to me.  Thank you to all of you who visited this summer, and more than anything, thank you to our amazing local, regular clientele, who put up with an amazing influx of people during those few months and had to wait sometimes up to 1.5 hours to get a table.  We so appreciate the business and the support!

It's Washington Cider Week!  Join us Thursday, the 12th through Sunday, the 15th for a flight of Snowdrift cider.  This flight will be available all day, each of those days for $15.  Along with sampling 5 of these awesome local ciders, we will be coming up with a few specials and suggestions that pair well with cider.  Snowdrift is a family run cidery in Wenatchee, and one of the owners lives right here in Langley.  He will be here from 5-7 on Friday evening to wander around and chat with people who want to chat about cider.  As always, we suggest making a reservation!
Don't miss out on the last weekend of Island Shakespeare Festival's Much Ado About Nothing, in the circus tent (amazing) behind the middle school.  The show is incredible, hilarious, fun, AND FREE!  Gates open at 4:15 and many shows have seen a full get there early, secure a seat, bring a picnic and have fun.  Show runs Fri, Sat, and Sun and this is the last weekend...don't miss out!

DJANGOFEST 2013 is just around the corner.  Langley will be filled with music on street corners, restaurants, and actual concerts and workshops throughout town...visit the WICA website for all the details.   We will be hosting the Saturday night jam session...after the show we'll plan on staying open until 2:00 and serving a limited menu from 10 pm until at least midnight.

We are replacing the floor in our kitchen, but can't plan the dates of closing until the product has shipped.  So please be advised, we will be closed 2 or 3 days in October and will be posting it on facebook and twitter as well as on our website as soon as we know the dates.  Also, we are doing a huge revamp and expansion of our wine list...we are excited to hear your response.  And starting in a few weeks we are bringing in a pastry chef and baker...the ultimate goal is for all our breads to be baked in house and our pastry program revitalized.
