Join us this Sunday, July 20th and let your palate get lost in three riveting courses. Baby Kale, Avocado, Green Goddess Dressing, is the opening that will get you hooked. The plot climaxes with Roasted Lamb Neck, Chared Eggplant, Yogurt, Jus. And there are few conclusions as satisfying as a Strawberry Short Cake. This edition costs just $20.

Speaking of summer reading, our dear friend and devoted Nook aficionado, Lenny Kleinfeld, recently finished up his second novel. Its called Some Dead Genius, and its the sequel to his first novel Shooters And Chasers. This black comedy follows the adventures of detectives Mark Bergman and John "Doonie" Dunegan as they investigate murders in the Chicago art world. Check out this raving review for more information. Its available in paperback and Kindle form. I'm reading it right now, so there's book club potential here, people.
