Corporations and celebrities have joined the cause as well, making it a viral Internet campaign.  I just read that almost $90 million has been raised for this cause. How truly wonderful to see so many (more than 1.7 million) people work together! Supporting the fight against ALS Read More…

Did you know that July is National Ice Cream Month? In 1984, President Ronald Regan declared July to forever be the month of our favorite creamy frozen treat, with the third Sunday of the month being Ice Cream Day. Who are we to argue with this cause for celebration? And why would we want to? At The Blue Owl Restaurant and Bakery, we love to serve up a scoop alongside Read More…

It is often said that a mother holds her children’s hands for a while, but she holds their hearts forever. How true it is!

Mother’s Day is upon us and we are eagerly preparing for Read More…
