Live Locally. . .

August signals time to grasp those final days of summer before we head back into school and work. Our writers have found find terrific outings and adventures close to home for you to do with family, friends, kids, or pets in as little as an hour or as long as a day.

It is time for ice cream! We bring you the top local favorites from our staff and readers that invite you to explore everything from new Fro Yo spots to mochi ice cream in Japantown.

We used our lazy days of summer to create our area’s first and only beer and wine map. We are certain this will get you Out & About exploring local vineyards, wineries, microbreweries, and wine and beer events. Wine season events kick off this year Saturday, August 23, with the Willow Glen Wine Walk.

In the spirit of Eating in Season it is time for locally grown tomatoes and corn. Hurray for Salsa, Salad, and Summer BBQ!

Julie Okashima gets in the My Out & About spirit by getting out to meet friends only to be surprised to find a secret food spot she now claims is a favorite.

August marks the time when runners descend on Los Gatos for the Dammit Run held Saturday, August 9, then winds down with the Race to the End of Summer on the Coyote Creek Trail Sunday, August 31.

Pam Finch and Debbie Ballentine kick off our fall home and garden season this month taking you to local homes and secret garden spots to get you inspired to decorate, remodel, or landscape your own home and garden this fall.

My Out & About Welcome Baskets are being delivered to area homeowners as we welcome new readers, families, and customers to our local communities, schools, and businesses. Thank you to all the businesses that have embraced this idea and each month are helping us remind readers and new homeowners that wherever we go, whatever we do, we always – Live Locally!
