A Day at the Track

Thursday was Mr. Bill Warnke’s 90th birthday. His daughter Lisa visiting from out of town joined him and 7 other resident guests and 4 staff members in our Mercedes Benz Sprinter on a trip to one of his favorite places: Gulfstream Park. We spent a winning afternoon in the casino sharing in Mr. Warnke’s good fortune and luck.

Jaxson’s Ice Cream Re-Treat

It’s the hot, hot summertime, and that’s when we like to head up to Dania Beach and have some ice cream sundaes at Jaxson’s Ice Cream Parlour and Restaurant. The trip has been a Bay Oaks tradition, just as Jaxson’s has been a tradition since 1956.

Everybody’s getting ready to tuck in.

Bay Oaks goes Deli when the Deli comes to Bay Oaks

Restaurateur extraordinaire Josh Marcus brought a taste of his deli to Bay Oaks on his birthday yesterday.

His birthday tradition is to give back to the community, and we were the lucky recipients. Josh (left, below) and his friend Danny Serfer prepared the homemade mini-bagels with cured salmon and cream cheese. They also served pastrami on rye and macaroni salad.
