The Savory Spoon Offers Mini Creamsicle Cupcakes this week & Jazz

My Secret Happy Place
I’m reserved to write this post because as the editor of several B2C editorial shoutout sites, I want to keep this place a secret (like not tilling others of your best secret fishing hole or everybody will go fishing there) :-)!

Okay…so I found a place that I can get away from it all and just breath, relax and enjoy the home cooked meals, drink a few micro brews for only $2.   On Tuesdays and Thursdays from 4:00 to closing.
You read that correct, only $2 for micro brews!, can you find it any cheaper with the ambiance, quality and service?..I think not.

Redding Jazz Nights My Soul Is Soothed
Was there on their first jazz night last Thursday Sept 4th.  what an experience truly amazing.  For some reason jazz nights at The Savory Spoon goes together like a PB&J.  Somethings just click and having a jazz night at the savory spoon on their $2 pint night clicks big time!
The Savory Spoon Jazz Nights$2 Pint Nights & Doodle Paper to Boot
When walking into The Savory Spoon you will notice right away that the tabletops are covered with butcher paper.  Since I’m a doodler and love to write out my thoughts in a rough draft at the ending of the day the savory spoons’s butcher paper works great to accomplish this.  Plus if you have kids or grand kids the container of crayons that set in the center of your table make the perfect combo to doodle a pirates lost treasure map, tear it off  and take it home and have fun with it by going on a lost treasure hunt around the house or neighborhood with your kid or grand child.

Most people i know love cupcakes, The Savory Spoon is offering Mini Creamsicle Cupcakes this week! 
Only a $1 each!
