It’s All About the Birthday Cake!
The Montrose Shopping Park knows how to throw a memorable birthday party. This Sunday we are celebrating Montrose turning 102! The mayor and Glendale city officials will be joining us to present awards. There will be lots of food and entertainment spanning two blocks. The Harvest Market will be in full swing. But for me the day seems to revolve around the birthday cake. Here are some pics of our cakes going back to 2004. This year, working with Henry Baeza of Montrose Bakery, we have a spectacular new design and color combo for our cake! Watch for multi-tiered circular cakes of all sizes, decorated in red and pink roses with strawberry cream inside! I can hardly wait! The ceremony starts at 2 p.m. at the stage in front of Billy’s Boardshop where you will once again find Robin Goldsworthy and me, knives in hand, ready to cut and serve. There’s nothing like freshly baked birthday cake!
Wait ‘til You Hear Trio Mariachi Capri!
Yes, that is Ryan Gosling posing with Trio Mariachi Capri. This Sunday at our Montrose birthday party you will find out why he, along with Dustin Hoffman, Matt Dillon, and many others, book this group for their big parties. With over 30 years of experience, this father and sons trio will be serenading us right in the Montrose Shopping Park. Oh, and did I mention we are having a rancho-style barbecue complete with a whole roasted pig on a spit hosted by Kirk Gelsinger of Zeke’s Smokehouse? Buy your tickets from 11 a.m. to 3 p.m. for $10 and enjoy a menu including chicken or pork machaca, refried beans, Spanish rice, handmade tortillas and a beverage. Beer, wine, and sangria will be offered for only $4. Yum! See www.shopmontrose.com for more details.
