Nestled within the acoustic splendor of the Blossom Music Center's pyramid-shaped pavilion, you’ll be close enough to taste the high notes of the piccolos, the vibrato of crashing cymbals, and the sass of brassy fanfares as the Blossom Festival Band fills the air with patriotic music. Led by conductor Loras John Schissel, the program will include the toe-tapping marches of John Philip Sousa, a salute to the U.S. Armed Forces, and Tchaikovsky’s 1812 Overture. As long as the weather allows, fireworks will follow the concert—an exploding cherry bomb on top of the sweet sundae evening.

Euclid Tavern combines an extensive menu of American fare with neighborhood bar charm, enhanced by live entertainment throughout the week. The chef grills up an impressive array of burgers, including the third-pound Tavern burger ($8) and the Pizza burger ($7.50), which, like Disney's remake of Dawn of the Dead, melds together the best of two disparate worlds. While the Italian press's ($8) salami and pepperoni dance the tarantella with onions and provolone on a garlic-bread stage, various sauces ranging from Cajun rub to garlic parmesan slather a dozen wings ($8). Euclid Tavern entices patrons with daily specials, such as $0.75 tacos on Tuesdays, and enlivens the casual atmosphere with assorted events, including live bands, comedy nights, and interpretive dances about the U.S. Constitution.

In 1954, Frank Sterle founded a country-house restaurant with a few picnic tables, one waitress, and a small menu from his native country, Slovenia. The eatery?s hand-pounded schnitzel and performances by the likes of ?Waltz King? Lou Trebar and ?King of Polka? Frankie Yankovic soon drew crowds. Frank was able to expand the restaurant, modeling the addition after an alpine lodge where he lived as a child, and decorate the dining room with wall murals of Slovenian mountains.

In 2012, Rick Semersky launched the Szemersky Bier Garden, an authentic bier garden with picnic tables and green space, tucked behind the restaurant. The menu includes locally made sausages, kabobs and sandwiches cooked to order on the outdoor grill along with specially brewed beers. On Sundays, the garden hosts Bloody Mary Sundays with a wide selection of garnishes and condiments.

Chef Jimmy Gibson heads up a kitchen that is committed to classic eastern European cuisine, with a twist. On Friday and Saturday polka nights, diners can tap their feet and gaze at the roof?s exposed wooden beams, taking notes for the construction of their next gingerbread houses.
