Tanner Jackâ€™s, a premier barbecue-sauce company for 20 years, continues its tradition of excellence with the opening of a new steakhouse at the corner of Highway 1 and Halcyon Road on the Mesa in Arroyo Grande.
â€œWe have cookinâ€™ with a smoking attitude,â€? said Jack Stevens, co-owner of Tanner Jackâ€™s. â€œWe infuse the meats with seasoning and then smoke the ribs and steaks slow and long, glaze with Tanner Jackâ€™s barbecue sauce, and finish over a wood-fired grill.â€?
Tanner Jackâ€™s will hold its grand-opening celebration on July 22 from noon to 5 p.m. with an old-fashioned pig and corn roast. DJ Hardyâ€™s Country Rock Band will provide entertainment, and each business in the Craig Center will offer raffle tickets with prizes announced throughout the day. For more information, call 473-8485. â€¦
Buy a chance to win a sporty Pontiac Solstice convertible and support Options, a local nonprofit organization with a focus on helping individuals with developmental disabilities to become valuable members of the community. Options is holding a raffle for the black convertibleâ€”viewable at San Luis Obispo Farmersâ€™ Market July 20 through August 24â€”to help support Optionsâ€™ services, which include vocational training, residential services, one-on-one job coaching, and rehabilitation.
â€œPretty much all of our clients are low-income, and government funding has been frozen since 2002,â€? said Lisa Hersch, Optionsâ€™ public affairs manager. â€œThe drawing will help us provide new roofs for two of our residential facilities and some extras that are needed.â€?
Tickets are $100 each, and only 1,000 will be sold. The winning ticket will be drawn and announced at the Avila Beach Music Festival on Sept. 30, during a concert featuring Emmylou Harris. The winner need not be present to win. For more information, call 722-6066, ext. 185, or send a $100 checkâ€”payable to Options/ABMFâ€”to P.O. Box 877, Morro Bay, CA 93443. âˆ†
