Three Special Days in May

It was the day before Easter, and all was a flurry. The legs of lamb were going out the door in a hurry. We did our own cuts and were swamped from dusk till dawn ! Our butcher blocks were busy all day long. We hope that you all enjoyed the Easter Day feast and celebration!


Spring erupted in April and is in full bloom in May as we celebrate three important days this month: Mother’s Day (May 10th), Memorial Day (May 30th) and a Wine Tasting - May 19th (3rd Thursday of every month, 7-9pm) combining French wines and cheeses. Mothers Day usually brings a higher interest in our delicious tenderloin steak cuts, then after Memorial Day at the end of the month we start our summer grill out the front door in our parking lot. Saturdays 11am-3pm.

As the weather gets better we offer great take-outs for picnics. Your choice of cheese, wine, beer (how about an ice-cold Ninkasi?) and cured meats. Boars Head is a favorite here and we have a good selection. Stop by and browse our store here in SouthTowne Eugene.
