July’s birthstone is Ruby, which is also known as the “Lord of the Gems” for its rarity and beauty. Ruby is only available in one stunning color – a vivid, spectral red, with a very faint blue undertone. Rubies have been valued throughout history, and have been said to protect their owners from misfortune. At one time it was believed they possessed an inner flame which burned eternally. While they are a durable stone, they should still be protected from sharp blows and scratches. The finest rubies are sourced from Burma, but are also found in Thailand, Kenya, Tanzania, Cambodia, Sri Lanka, and India.
PLACES TO GO : Whiskey Kitchen
Whiskey Kitchen is a quaint, centrally located spot that has outdoor dining and is dog friendly. You can find great events and specials on their website, but our favorite is their Flight Night which is every Wednesday, and offers 3 full shots of whiskey for just $10. While the libations are certainly a draw, you certainly won’t want to miss the food menu either. Our recommendations include the Fried Cauliflower, Pickle Jar, Mussels in Coconut Broth, or if you want to splurge, the Whole Fried Fish.
PLACES TO EAT: Beer, Bourbon & BBQ Festival
Royale is a French-American bistro located downtown offering a full menu of French dishes and a full selection of drinks. They offer delicious weekly specials, such as bottomless Moules Frites night every Wednesday, which features hand-cut french fries and incredible mussels, and Beef Wellington Night every Saturday. They also have wonderful salads if you’re looking for something lighter.
Every Wednesday is bottomless Moules Frites (mussels and fries) night, which features hand-cut french fries, Saturday is Beef Wellington night. Also if you’d like to try something on the lighter side they also have great salads.
