Umm, Biscuits and Gravy
There comes a time in our lives that we all wake up, dreaming of a crisp, flaky biscuit smothered in gravy. You can satisfy that urge by going to a restaurant and asking for a side order of biscuits and gravy. But that’s no fun. Instead, check out the fifth annual Erie Biscuit Days from 8 a.m.-noon on Sept. 15. There, the biscuit will be anything but an after thought. Local vendors will serve homemade stew on the side, and festival goers get to vote for their favorite. There will also be craft booths, a farmers’ market and live jazz starting at 9 a.m. Proceeds go toward Erie Historical Society projects. Call 303.828.3440 for information.
Longmont’s Sushi Destination
The menu at Sushi Café looks like your typical sushi restaurant it has all the requisite rolls, sashimi options and appetizers you’d expect. But the newish Japanese spot has finally given Longmont a bon-a-fide destination for sushi with fresh offerings usually associated with Boulder and Denver eateries. It also has a full menu of other Asian treats for those who aren’t huge fans of raw fish. For information on Sushi Café, 2315 Clover Basin Dr., call 303.651.6181.
Yet Another Reason To Mention The Erie Café
We may be a little too biased toward the new and improved Uptown Erie Café. This marks its third mention in this column since it re-opened its doors just a few short months ago. But the café keeps giving us reason to write about them and it happens to be just a half block away from our office. Most importantly, it has built the first true patio in Old Town Erie. When it gets its liquor license, we’re guessing it’ll be the hot spot for happy hour. Also check out a completely remodeled inside. For information on the café, 554 Briggs St., call 303.828.2501.
