Now Available at the Inn: Dulce Vida Organic Tequila

Dulce Vida Organic Tequila is now available at the Franklin Inn.  This company produces the only 100° proof, 100% organic tequila in the world and has received numerous awards.

Today we are featuring Dulce Vida's  Reposado Tequila. It is the winner of the highest honor, the Best of Category/Gold Medal, at the 2012 Los Angeles International Spirits Competition.

Reposado, or “rested” tequila, is aged anywhere from two months to one year. Dulce Vida’s Reposado spends 11 months in American Bourbon Whiskey barrels to create a light yellow-gold, medium to full bodied tequila. When you taste it, you’ll notice delicate agave, barrel wood and citrus with strong fruit flavor notes and a mild, sweet finish. Check out Dulce Vida's website for more cool details about their completely vertically integrated methods.

Try it alone or sample as part of today's Featured Tequila Flight ($8). Let us know which you like the best:

It's Our Birthday!

The Franklin Inn is 34!
Stop in Today for Birthday Cake.
Thank you to all of our patrons, staff, and vendors through these years that have made 34 years possible. We love you!

We're so blessed for the opportunity to be your neighborhood restaurant all these years. We've made wonderful memories together. I "married" the restaurant over a decade ago, but many of you, and some of our staff, have been with the Inn even longer. You may have grown up with the Inn. A lot of our area's teens landed their first job with us. One of my favorite testimonials is from a child who wrote me, "I have loved the Franklin Inn all my life."We've had a lot of celebrations together: Birthdays, Marriage Proposals, Anniversaries, New Jobs, Retirement Parties, and more. A few years ago we ran a "Thank you for the Memories" Contest in honor of our 30th birthday.  You can read some of the stories on our website. Thank you for sharing life's special moments with us and for your continued patronage to our little restaurant.

I was going to order a cake for our celebration but Chris wants to bake it in-house for you. Join us today for lunch or dinner. No need for a certificate today. Your server will offer you a piece of cake while supplies last. Feel free to invite a friend and introduce him or her to the Inn as well. We love to make new friends.

Besides a free piece of birthday cake there are a few other things going on at the Inn Today:
