On Saturday, October 4th will be the 27th annual Pastels on the Plaza, a benefit for Northcoast Children's Services. This morning I spoke with Kathy Montagne about this year's event. There are still spaces for area business and organizations to purchase. They are also looking for volunteer artists to pair with sponsors. Contact Northcoast Children's Services at (707) 822-7206 or email email@example.com. Pictured is KHUM's square from last year. Amy Berkowitz, the artist.

As you listen, keep the studio number handy for a bid to win one of three pairs of tickets for this show. See you there, Chas

From Center Arts:
"The Avett Brothers regret to announce that we must re-schedule tonight's show at Humboldt State University in Arcata due to an illness in the band. We are disappointed that we won't get to see you all tonight, but we look forward to announcing the rescheduled date for this show in the next few weeks. Please hold on to your tickets, as they will be honored for the new date."

Tonight during The Cocktail Hour, we'll be featuring the sidecar, about as classic a cocktail as you can get. Three simple ingredients, a shaker, a glass and some sugar (optional) is all you need. Maybe invented at Harry's Bar in Paris, or maybe in the 19th Century in New Orleans, or maybe somewhere else, there's never a wrong time to order a sidecar.
- 2 tablespoons superfine sugar
- 1 lemon wedge
- 3 tablespoons (1 1/2 ounces) Cognac
- 2 tablespoons (1 ounce) Cointreau or other Triple Sec orange liqueur
- 1 tablespoon (1/2 ounce) fresh lemon juice
- 1 cup ice
Spread superfine sugar on small plate. Rub lemon wedge halfway around rim of chilled martini or coupe glass. Dip moistened side of glass in sugar to lightly coat outside rim of glass. Set aside.
In cocktail shaker, combine Cognac, Cointreau, and lemon juice. Add ice and shake vigorously until well chilled, about 30 seconds. Strain into prepared martini or coupe glass and serve.

A group of the region’s master chefs will collectively design an eight course culinary experience that is not to be missed! The evening will feature local ingredients in the beautiful setting of the Moonstone Grill.
We spoke with Erin Derden-Little with the Community Alliance with Family Farmers and Linda Prescott with the Humboldt County Office of Education about the menu, the chefs, and what the best fruit or vegetable is.
