Friday, Aug. 4

Bam Desserts 

New Dessert Shop in Somerset on Hamilton. Open today 11a-6p, Sat 11a-5p and Sun 11a-3pm.

BAM Desserts consist of three partners/friends with a vision to start a specialty bakery offering an array of flavors and something different.  The name derives from the first initial of each owner.   We decided to focus our recipes on creative cake flavors.   Although we love icing, we want the flavor to stand on its own with icing as an accent.  The goal for our treats is less icing and MORE FLAVOR.

PJ Cavanaugh's

Cool off after work with a drink in hand poolside at PJ Cav’s from 3 p.m. to 11 p.m. We've got the #FrozenDrinks, Pool Side Eats, & #DJ's spinning all summer long! #Summer2k17
