We're hitting the trail!
May kicks off our summer-series of shows that keeps us busy all the way through August! This weekend we have a full weekend of shows starting in Menlo Park for Sunset Celebration Weekend Festival. This is one of our very favorite events to attend because it gives us a chance to be among the best artisans from all over California. The Celebration Weekend is packed full of food and wine vendors and unique California merchandise. We are excited to be part of such a great weekend! Hope to see you there May 31-June 1!
As if the weekend wasn't full enough, we will also be at Firestone Walker Invitational Beer Festival, Saturday May 31st! Being a fellow business in the 805, this show is near and dear to our hearts. We will be serving up a few of our favorite gourmet sausages, including an Elk Swiss sausage, exclusively for Beer Fest. We can't wait to see all of our fans there and share in a great day of food and beer!
