There's a buzz going around town and it's huge. Bosco's Bones and Brew is back in business!
Owners Mary Truong and Allen Feng are extremely excited to be re-opening this once popular eating establishment nearly a year after the previous owners closed the business.

Co-Owner Allen, who is also the chef, is part owner of two other very popular Bay Area restaurants, Café Enrico in Alameda and Dino's in Castro Valley.

This is Mary's first restaurant venture and when I first spoke with her by telephone and later at the restaurant she sounded as excited as an expectant mother taking care of last minute arrangements and finalizing details for the grand re-opening to take place this coming Thursday.

Mary also assured me that the old west theme and décor would not be changed in the slightest and sure enough when I walked through the doors of the saloon there was good old Bosco proudly perched atop the stunning wooden bar. As most of you know Bosco was one of Sunol's major claim to fame when a town prank turned serious and a dog was named our unofficial mayor. Bosco has long gone to doggy heaven but his life size likeness has been turned into a beer tap, yes you are absolutely correct, when his rear left leg is lifted you get a pint of foamy, frothy, amber colored beer.

The new Bosco's Bones and Brew has a quite extensive menu, which includes Italian and French cuisine, steak and seafood, 12 delicious appetizers, soups, salads, several delectable desserts and steak and lobster combo dinners. They will also be offering early bird specials that include an entrée, coffee or tea and dessert for $11.95 or $12.95 and a Saturday and Sunday buffet brunch. But opening night must not be missed because on this evening only, Mary and Allen are offering a buffet style meal for $8.00 per person that will include several items from the menu, such as prime rib, salmon, prawns, salad, pasta and desserts to give the public a taste of what they have to offer.

The restaurant's regular hours are as follows: lunch is served Monday through Friday from 11:30 a.m. to 3:00 p.m.; dinner is served from Monday through Thursday from 3:00 to 9:00 p.m., Friday and Saturday from 3:00 p.m. to 10:00 p.m. and Sunday from 4:00 to 9:00 p.m. The early bird special menu will be available Monday through Thursday from 3:00 to 5:00 and their Saturday and Sunday brunch, which is buffet style, will be served from 10:00 a.m. to 2:00 p.m. Reservations are accepted for parties of 8 or more and plans for Holiday dining will be forthcoming. For more information you can contact Mary or Allen at 925-862-0821.

A reminder to all Sunol residents-- the Grandmothers Club and the Sunol 4-H invite you to join in the fun this Saturday at our Annual Christmas Tree Lighting festivities at the Community park in downtown Sunol. Don't forget to dress warmly for the "Sunolian only" train ride on Niles Canyon Railways Holiday Train and bring a dessert such as cupcakes, cookies or candy to share.

This year's festivities will also include the Sunol Glen School eighth grade's annual raffle of a decorated Christmas tree and if you don't have time for dinner before the festivities, the students are also selling delicious tri-tip or barbeque pork sandwich and a bag of chips for only $5.00. All proceeds from the dinner and raffle will benefit the eighth graders annual trip to Washington D.C. The evenings schedule is as follows: 5:00 gathering at the park; 5:30 tree lighting; 6:00 Sunol residents only train ride with Santa; 7:00 decorated Christmas tree raffle.

Sunol Repertory Theater will be holding auditions for next seasons Melodrama. Auditions are open to high school students and adults only and will be held in the Sunol Glen School cafeteria on Thursday at 7:00 p.m.
