Things we loved in July

Thanks Patty!

A fond farewell and a hearty thank you is owed Patty Reed who left the Delray Chamber to start a new chapter in Melbourne, Florida.
Patty was a wonderful asset to the Delray Chamber and will be missed by all. Her warmth, attention to detail and hard work was not lost on chamber members who always looked forward to seeing her at events and activities. We wish Patty all the best and thank her for a job extremely well done.

News & Notes

Kudos to Sardinia Enoteca in Delray. Great food, excellent service and an extensive wine list make this a welcome addition to the ‘off the avenue’ food scene. Don’t miss their eggplant. Magnificent.

Summer time can be a little dull if you don’t like blockbusters movies. Thank goodness for the Living Room Theatre at FAU in Boca. An oasis in a desert.

We finally tried the Foxworth Fountain at the new Delray Shores Pharmacy on U.S. 1. It was wonderful.
Great pressed sandwiches, cute counter, a real throwback.
We didn’t try the desserts or soda fountain, but that gives us a reason to return.

We will miss Uncle Tai’s. But wish the proprietors a happy retirement. 32 years of excellence. Bravo!

Enjoyed checking out the classic and historic Addison with my partner Marisa Herman. The corporate open house featured incredible food, pineapple mojitos and showcased the classic property which is ideal for special events and corporate parties. Check it out. The holidays are around the corner.

Enjoyed spending time with County Commission candidate Bob Weinroth during an informal discussion at my office. We brought some Delray people over to exchange ideas and share priorities. November is coming soon, but first we have a primary on August 28.  Make sure to vote. So many important races and ballot questions.

Enjoyed spending time with friends at Apeiro at the Delray Marketplace.
It’s a great place for large groups. Good food. Great Moscow mules and the best orrechiette I’ve had in a while.

Baja Cantina in Boca is a cute little joint smack dab on the tracks south of Glades Road. Good prices, delicious San Gria and the chips and salsa are wonderful.
We also discovered the Corner Porch in Delray after all these years. It’s wonderful. Great drinks, delicious food and an historic atmosphere. It’s becoming a favorite.

Finally, a heartfelt thanks to my dear friend Fran Marincola who wrapped up 19 years on Delray’s Parking Management Board in July.
I think it’s fair to say nobody knows more than Fran does about parking in Delray nor is more passionate about the issue.
Board service is essential, important and often thankless work. The volunteers who give their time are often unsung but hugely valuable to a successful city.
Fran did his part, which also includes a long stint on the Downtown Development Authority. He cares a whole lot of about his town and that’s really cool.
Until next month, have a great and safe August.

    At the risk of stating the obvious, Fran and Patty; two different people… two remarkable assets to our community… two people who will be missed!
