Reminders - Bistro 108

Music on the Patio - Tomorrow
Bill Poss and the Racket will be playing on the Star Lite Lizard Lounge tomorrow night, Thursday, 7:30 - 9:30 pm. The wonderful rain we are getting right now is suppose to be long gone by showtime. Be prepared with a light jacket, cause the cool front should have arrived, also. Come early and enjoy dinner on the patio or plan on eating during the concert. The last time Bill and crew played everyone had a great time.

Chef Susan's Special for Friday Dinner
Oso Bucco (slow roasted lamb shank) served on top of saffron risotto with gremolata...something new for fall. Also, we will have the fantastic Japanese Sea Bass.
