A Bagel of a Time at Noah’s New York Bagels [TGLRC #28]

Chewy on the outside, warm and soft on the inside; bagels are a wonderful creation dating back to 16th century Poland. It’s funny what you learn when you blog about great restaurants in town.

When I started writing about Noah’s New York Bagels, #28 of The Great Livermore Restaurant Challenge, I couldn’t help but wonder where bagels came from and how they are made.

Want to know? Check out this video on how to make real New York Bagels.

If you’re in the mood for a bagel Livermore only has one option, Noah’s. Not a fan? Pleasanton and Dublin offer a half-dozen different bagel shops to choose from. So no need to panic as there are plenty of choices in the Tri-Valley.

Since I was in the mood for a light lunch, and do most of my munchin’ in Livermore, I thought I’d give Noah’s in Livermore a try.

Livermore Airport Open House Postponed Until 2015

2013 Livermore Airport Open House

Aerial demonstration from the 2013 Livermore Airport Open House

Normally the first Saturday in October is the annual Livermore Airport Open House. It’s a fun event to see some really cool aircraft, listen to some good music, and have some great food. It’s really a great event for the family. Best of all – it’s FREE!

Unfortunately the 2014 Airport Open House has been postponed until next year, October 3rd, 2015.

The airport is currently undergoing several construction projects that would impact the event, so they decided to cancel this year’s event.

However next year however will be a big deal as the Livermore Airport turns 50!

Visit the Livermore Airport’s website for more information.

Great Bang for your Buck Specials at Togo’s Sandwiches [TGLRC #27]

When you eat out a lot like I’m doing for The Great Livermore Restaurant Challenge, it pays to look out for coupons and specials. Since my wallet is in the mood for a good deal, I stopped by Togo’s Sandwiches for lunch.

There are two locations in Livermore, ironically both on First Street and both next to a Safeway. For #27 of The Great Livermore Restaurant Challenge I stopped by the Togo’s closer to 580 at Las Positas Road. Their other shop is located downtown next to the other Safeway and Osh Hardware.

Togo’s is great for their “Daily Specials.” The only catch is that you have to be in the mood for that day’s deal. If you are, you can get a 6″ sandwich for just $4. Add a 20oz drink to your sub and it’s $5. Or you can make it the full Daily Special Combo which includes the sandwich, drink and chips for only $6.

If you want a Turkey & Cheese and it isn’t a Saturday, the full combo will run you $8.50. A 30% in savings is not too shabby of a deal.
