Life moves by pretty fast so you sometimes you need to get a couple of quick takes and small bites here and there. Here are some of the extra bonuses and cool things we found this month

Do you love a Gin and Tonic? One of our favorite G&Ts is at the Redwood Café. It is so refreshing and delicious. Specially made with some rosemary, juniper berries and a touch of grapefruit, you will absolutely love it. We promise. 4342 Dale Rd. Modesto 209-545-9248

Did you know that we love cocktails on the patio? Yes we do so our for our Patio of the month, we like the evening shade at Fuzio watching Friday Night Music in the Plaza. Perfect way to wind down a week with one of their classic cocktails and some Firecracker Fusilli 1020 10th St Modesto 209-557-9711

Twisted Pig has grown! Expansion features new place for music, games, pool tables and group seating called the Boar’s Nest. One of our favorite places gets better all the time. Congrats Randy! Don’t forget the Rooster Bullets. 2717 Coffee Rd Modesto 209-248-7243

Feeling French? We recommend the Croque Madame at the Commonwealth on the weekend during brunch. Oh yeah, it is seriously decadent. 1022 11th St 209-248-7451

Looking for real Indian food? We have locked on to Sunrise on Mitchell Road. Full bar, amazing menu and the tastiest butter chicken. Yum. Oh yeah full bar and amazing deserts too. Gotta check it out 1775 Mitchell Rd, Ceres, CA 95307 209-538-3300

Ralston’s Goat has created an amazing Fried Green Tomato BLT that is out of this world! The fries are great to and match that up with the cocktails in the bar. Winner! 1001 10th St. 209-549-9413

Loving the new band Sticks and Stones with Ron Meyer and Jamie Bayous! Check them out at P. Wexford’s and other great places. They do Beatles, Classics and some bayou music. Loads of fun.

Holy Ahi! The Seared Ahi with the Sriracha topping with asparagus is a View Crew favorite from the kitchen at Rivets American Grill. Fantastic, Yeah we’ll say it again fantastic AND healthy. 2307 Oakdale Rd. Modesto 209-846-0501

Need a sushi roll that hits it out of the park on all counts? Little spice, some tempura and loaded with shrimp? Then try the Goodie Roll at Raw. Pairs perfectly with a sparkling Sake mixed by Melinda. 1200 I St. 209-566-9560
