Toad in the Hole Pub opens

After months of anticipation, Railroad
Square’s Toad in the Hole pub will open at the
auspicious hour of 4:20pm Friday, July 27.
If you don’t get the significance, uh, ask your kids. The English style
bar and eatery will offer Bangers & Mash, fish and chips, meat pies and
other tasty Brit fare from former Syrah toque Pam Wilson. And yes, they’ll also
have plenty of foamy pints. No word whether they’ll be passing the hookah.
Which begs the question: Should Anglophiles pass the dutchie to the left hand
side, or the right? Toad in the Hole, 116 Fifth St.,
Santa Rosa, 707.544.8623

Also tonight, Cornerstone Gardens hosts a summer block party from 3:30 to 9pm at it’s Highway 121 location in Sonoma. The fete honors the art and garden center’s re-invention as home to several new lifestyle shops and wine tasting rooms, including a (hopefully) permanent home for the displaced Roshambo Winery. Cornerstone Gardens, 23570 Hwy. 121, Sonoma. Look for the giant blue tree.
