Saturday Mornings cereal Pop-Up Vol. 1
A bowl of sugary cereal is the breakfast of champions for kids and a late night snack for lazy grownups. While it’s quite possibly the easiest thing to “cook” at home, the thrill of getting cereal in public with your peers remains alluring. That’s why there’s going to be a one-day cereal bar pop-up event, put on by a local effort aptly called “Saturday Mornings.” The organizers have curated five “signature bowls” using “a mix of local favorites and hard to find overseas brands.” They’ll have vegan and gluten-free options, and one for dogs, too, at this cash-only event. But supplies are limited, so when they sell out, that’s it. And Mikey definitely doesn’t like it when that happens.
Aug. 11, 10 a.m. to 6 p.m.

Les Dames Summerdine
This is the beautiful summer night when several restaurants around the province set aside a special table at the same time in support of Les Dames d’Escoffier scholarship fund. From the hottest new restaurants to secret roof tops and boat decks catered by celebrity chefs, Les Dames then pairs the restaurant with a winery as the chef creates an exquisite set food and wine menu. Choose one seat at a larger table or book out all the seats at a smaller table.
