Reopened: Crave EspressoCrave Espresso Bar has reopened under a new owner, Aaron Triplett, who also owns Safehouse. You will probably still feel at home, because most of the staff remains as well. Crave is located at 4530 E. Broadway Blvd.; 325-3637.
Primavera Cooks BrunchThe summer-long fundraiser, Primavera Cooks!, changes pace from dinners to a New Orleans-style Sunday brunch at Kingfisher on Sunday, Sept. 14. Guests can choose from one of six entrées and make repeat visits to the buffet for amazing salads, sumptuous side dishes and desserts worth dismissing the diet for. No brunch is ever complete without champagne flowing--or, for you hard-core oenophiles, wine. Diners pay $125 (which includes gratuity; a portion is tax-deductible). Funds raised directly benefit Primavera's programs and services, helping low-income, homeless and at-risk people obtain self-sufficiency and find dignity in their lives. To reserve, call 623-5111, ext. 101. Visit the Web site for the remaining schedule.
