Eggs by the Bay Offers Largest Selection of Ceramic Egg Cookers By Robert Haugh

The aroma of a brisket tenderly smoking overnight, savory and sweet smells of chicken plastered in the best BBQ sauces grilling in the backyard and savoring tender and juicy meats are just some of the reasons people love barbequing.

One of the most efficient ways to BBQ, grill, smoke or bake comes in the form of “egging.” The Big Green Egg, an American-designed ceramic cooker derived from an ancient clay cooker called a kamado, is user-friendly with ideal cooking temperatures. Thankfully for local BBQ aficionados, a specialized business serving Eggers, Eggs by the Bay is located in Santa Clara at 965 Shulman Avenue.

According to the Eggs by the Bay website, “The Big Green Egg is the most versatile and effective outdoor cooker ever designed for smoking, grilling, roasting, baking and barbequing all kinds of foods. The Big Green Egg is unequaled as a grill, a smoker and an oven. From high temperature searing of steaks, for low and slow cooking, or even brick-oven baking, the Big Green Egg will do it all.

Classic Beauties Shine at American Legion Post 419 Car Show

Harry Macartney hovered protectively near his 1962 Corvette convertible roadster. Its fawn beige body, matched to the original paint color, reflected the high noon rays of the sun June 20 at the annual car show at American Legion Post 419, 958 Homestead Road.

From Santa Clara for 2015, American Legion Posts 419 and 564 have sponsored Santa Clara High School seniors Ajaipal Chahal, Ekam Grewal and Jaskaranpal Singh and Wilcox High School seniors Arjun Ray, Ben Schouten and Robel Tessai...

Commemorative Statue Commission Goes to Bay Area Sculptor Linda Serrao

At the June 23 City Council meeting, it is expected that the City will announce the award of a sculpture commission to Bay Area artist Linda Serrao for a bronze work that will celebrate Super Bowl 50, to be played at Levi's Stadium. The permanent sculpture will stand in front of the city's Tasman Blvd. parking garage, where it will be accessible to the entire community.

Serrao's proposal was unanimously chosen by the Santa Clara Cultural Commission, after three submissions were chosen for consideration by a panel of representatives from the Cultural Commission, the Triton Museum, Santa Clara University's de Saisset Museum and the City Librarian.

The Commission selected Serrao's design because it embodied the concept of Santa Clara as "the Center of What's Possible," according to the agenda report. Serrao's specialty is bronze work and she has extensive experience with public art commissions. The piece will be cast in the Bay Area...
