Well the kiddies are heading back to school and summer is coming to a close… lucky for you we have a solution for those pre-winter jitters… a tea party of course…
The theme of this year’s Albany Heritage Day was Albany goes Hollywood. We here at Melina’s Bistro dove head first into coming up with a float; we also did a skit as we walked in the parade. It was tons of fun, and very enjoyable to do. I just hope you thought it was as fun. Here are some photos of the float in the parade. I hope you enjoy them.
We had our director, April in the truck so she could have a bird’s eye view of the commercial she was filming. Her assistant Sam held up the Applause sign every time April said cut.
Our Diva, Monica, wore her most glamorous feather boa in pale pink,
while her assistant, Donna (in the pink hat) did all in her power to attend to her.
Our other Actress Capi (wearing the black dress), was perfectly on queue with each take.
The Sound Boom was run by Anne, while “filming”; Tina was behind the camera.
Dale (right) and Terry (left) were a great help in driving and throwing candy during the parade and also for setting it all up. It was a great float, and the whole parade went well.
We took first place in the parade for float creativity and wish to give thanks to all who helped.
Also here are some more photos from the float…
From Melinawood Productions and Melina’s Bistro, we would like to say thank you to all who helped make this parade season a fun and very enjoyable season. Thank You!
We have quite a few new things going on at the Bistro including new syrups, new ice cream, new treats and new smoothies… oh and a couple new specials too!
First the new syrups we have…
Strawberry, Coconut, Almond, SF Raspberry and Orange! These are great in latte’s, but we are finding that they are even better in Italian Soda’s! Tina is addicted to Orange, she loves Orange and Cream Soda.
Also our Featured Drink right now is the Pink Flamingo which is Strawberry and Coconut Italian Soda! That’s 10% off!!
We now have Bridgman’s Maple Nut Ice Cream! It makes an excellent sundae try the Nut-Tastic Sundae!
Our latest treat is Coconut Macaroons, they are gluten free and reminiscent of an Almond Joy…
We also have S’More bars, new Muffin flavors including blueberry pound cake muffins, Happy Day Brownies, and more to come!
We got in some tasty new smoothies: Cherry, Peach, and Caribbean Colada…
There just might be more things that I am forgetting… we’ve been awfully busy, but not to busy to enjoy the sweets of life!
Have a sweet day!
This Sunday is Mother’s Day! Stop in for lunch… we have gift certificates! Nothing warms the heart like the gift of a latte.
