Love Me Do, Hear, & See July 30th – August 5th, 2018I can hear the bells…the school bells. They’re starting to chime in the distance. I haven’t been a student for quite some time, but even now, I can tell that summer is almost over – blame it on those Walmart back-to-school shopping ads. So, it’s time to take advantage of the weather and the long hours of sunlight while we still can! Here’s what we’ve got planned for the week ahead: dinner and crafting and frisbee, oh my…
Monday July 30th
Sometimes, a slightly-more-expensive-than-usual-but-fabulous-dinner is just the way to kick off the week! This Monday, head down to Temescal Brewing for a special “family dinner” style feast on the patio. The meal is centered around farm-fresh veggies, but the star attraction are the animals…I mean, main course. and some very special livestock. New Hope Farms will supply a lamb, a pig, and chickens that will be roasted on site and served alongside a slew of brew. A 7-course family-style meal prepared by permaculture chefs doesn’t come around everyday…

We know you love to paint, but have to tried to make? Does your desk need a mini makeover? Could your home use a little refresher? Come get your hands dirty and build your own terrarium at the Maker’s Loft. All materials are included in the $30 class fee, from glass, to pebbles, shells, and multi-colored rocks. You can even bring a cherished toy or knick-knack you may have lying around and add it to your creation. What a great way to end the work day!

This one, I’m amazed to say, is brand new to me, but something I plan on checking out ASAP! Every Sunday, FEAST Disc Club hosts pick-up frisbee games at Alameda Beach, just across from Sushi House. According to their Facebook event page, all experience levels and ages are welcome and while the club will provide cones, discs, and water, it’s “BYO anything else”. I like your style, FEAST.
