Report from Hot Dog Week

For one week during September, we had a lunch menu—including specialty hot dogs! It wasn’t as well-attended as we would have liked, but since everyone who came by enjoyed the sandwiches so much, we’ll be trying another sandwich week in October!

Here’s one happy customer enjoying her hot dog (with tomato, onion, pesto, and more):

Gorgeous September weather is finally setting in after all that rain. We have a lot of exciting new changes, not to mention exciting new food.

We’re trying something new this season: a daily special. Check out our new calendar of daily specials, or navigate to the “Gourmet to Go” tab.

This isn’t the only change: Sunday suppers will begin appearing on the calendar in October, and Wednesday Sandwich Specials will also start then.

We’ve also changed up our Summer catering menus for Fall ones. This is just a start—there’s lots more to come!
