The past week flew by and is merely a blur in retrospect. It was capped by a surprise party for 11 year old Ian & friends who learned to make/bake/decorate/eat the hockey stick cake & assorted pucks they created. Friday and Saturday people kept arriving to drop off their incredible entries for the "Artsy Undies" show. Norma floored us when she brought forth 14, count them, FOURTEEN bras from members of her own family. Look for a story about them coming up soon in the Bradenton Herald.

Karen Jennis and I (mostly Karen) spent the entire day yesterday "hanging" the show and finally stopped at 6:30pm, to be continued Wednesday. I'm honored and proud to be in the company of such caring people. This is something that you don't want to miss. The opening is this Friday during the October ArtWalk at Bonni Bakes, from 6-9:30pm. If you come early you'll have a chance to meet some of the artists. Their work will be on display for the entire month of October so stop in whenever we're open (Tues-Sat 11-2). We also have some of those delicious Ginger Kidz cookies, decorated in colorful bras & panties, for sale at just $2 each...with 100% of sales donated to the American Cancer Society. October is "Breast Cancer Awareness Month" so remember to check yours and your loved ones' frequently!

Doggie Dining begins on Friday Oct 2 at lunch. You can bring your well behaved dog on a leash and have them stay next to you at our outdoor patio tables. Check out the page of rules that will be posted. Free water bowls for the pooch, you've got to order off the menu. We're not ready to unveil "Muffin's Menu for Furry Friends" just yet...but it will be coming in the next few weeks.

Check out this week's menus and look forward to seeing you soon!
