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.

Easter Piñata

Our Easter weekend began with the “traditional” Easter pinata. Here she is ready to rain her treats.

Ms. Meyer, Mr. DeAlmeida and Ms. Fernans pictured above were some of our Oaksters who tried to coax the candy out of the Easter Egg pinata.

But in the end, it was Claude Esprit who had the last whack!
