Social Talk about town logo

If you noticed a little less traffic during the morning or afternoon hours in East County, it’s because most of the school districts in our area are currently on fall break. The social feeds are full of vacation and staycation photos being shared by both students and teachers. But, don’t get too comfortable with the lighter traffic conditions, because regular school schedules will resume on Monday, Oct. 15.

The Discovery Bay Chamber will be hosting Coffee with the First Responders on Tuesday, Oct. 23, from 8:30 to 10 a.m. Residents are encouraged to come out and meet local officers from the sheriff’s department, as well as members from the fire department for coffee and conversation. This event will take place at Big Al’s Café, located at 14870 Highway 4, in Discovery Bay. This is a chance for residents to ask questions in an informal setting and get to know the first responders who work hard protecting the community.

The onset of cooler weather has some people asking about the best local places to get a really good bowl of soup. While many make their own homemade soups, others gave local suggestions. Cap’s Oak Street Bar and Grill was praised for their Avgolemono (creamy lemon chicken and rice soup) served on Wednesdays, and Vic Stewarts was the place mentioned for hearty lobster bisque. For those who love pho, CreAsian was suggested multiple times, and if anyone is looking for a good won ton soup, Tao San Jin and Lone Tree Drive-In were both favorite locations. Brentwood Café was mentioned for the best overall soup selection, and one person even said the owner of the Brentwood Café named a soup after her husband, but didn’t mention which soup.
