Eat at Bob’s and support Golden Schools!

Bob's Atomic Burgers

You should plan to eat at Bob’s Atomic Burgers today.  They’re holding a fund-raiser for Pleasant View Elementary School, where 30% of their sales are being donated.

This event is of interest to all of the Golden Schools, because Pleasant View is a feeder school for Bell Middle School and Golden High School.  Eventually the kids from all of the neighborhoods come together and determine the quality of our Middle and High Schools.

So head to Bob’s today.  Enjoy a tasty burger and support Golden Schools!

Scottish Peat Smoked Barley and Rye

Grateful Bread

Grateful Bread is offering a new kind of bread:  Scottish Peat Smoked Barley and Rye.  They developed this bread at the request of State 38 Distilling.  The bread uses the same peat smoked barley from Scotland that the distillery uses in their Scotch-style single malt whiskey.  This naturally leavened, 50% rye bread is made with organic rye and barley milled in-house on their stone flour mill with the whole Scottish peat smoked barley.

Grateful Bread is primarily a wholesale bakery, but their retail store is open Saturdays from 10-2:30.  If you get there early enough, you may score some of the new Scottish Rye!

fruitSpeaking of State-38 Distilling…remember how two years ago, they invited everyone to bring in their extra fruit, to be used in a special brandy release?  Well they’re doing it again!  If your trees are producing more apples, pears, peaches, or plums than you can use, bring them into the distillery.  They’ll give you $10 off your next bottle purchase from the distillery.


  • Drop off will be located at the back of the distillery. If you would like to come in from the front, let us know you have fruit to donate and we will help you carry the bags in.
  • ALL fruit is welcome, except crab apples.  The more the merrier.  Don’t think for a second “this is too much for them to take in.”  Also, damaged/bruised fruit is VERY much welcomed.  We boil the fruit juice after pressing to kill off any bacteria before fermentation.
  • If you have fruit that has worms or other insects that have entered the fruit, we would appreciate not receiving this fruit, purely for the gross factor.

Please tell your friends, family and neighbors about what we are doing and help spread the word as much as possible.  Don’t let that wonderful fruit go to waste!
