It’s May! We have a busy month full of exciting events and holidays that we hope to join you in celebrating. Most importantly, it is National Hamburger Month as well as National Salad Month, so come on down and try out our new creations!


The Nacho Wonton Dippers were such a hit last month that we decided to keep them around a little longer. If you haven’t tried them yet, you’re missing out!

Our feature salad this month is a Salmon Avocado Salad. Crisp Arcadian lettuce topped with candied pecans, feta cheese, avocado, and our delicious blackened salmon. We will be serving our new house made lemon vinaigrette on the side!

That’s right, we have avocados back! Which means our Turkey Bacon Guacamole Wrap and Avocado Burger are returning for the summer. Our favorite Shrimp & Feta Salad is also available again!

Trivia

So far in 2018, the last male White Rhino passed away and we are now left with only two female White Rhinos. The Black, Javan, and Sumatran Rhinos are still critically endangered. May 1st is Save the Rhino Day, so we are going to give you some Rhino trivia in an effort to help educate people on these amazing creatures

There are currently five living species of Rhinos in the world--White, Black, Greater One-Horned, Javan and Sumatran. The largest species is the White Rhino, followed by the Greater One-Horned, then the Javan, Black, and Sumatran. They are the largest land mammals after the elephant!

 

Rhino horns are actually not made of bone, but are made of keratin, the same material that is found in a person’s hair and fingernails. The horns are also not attached to a Rhino’s skull. The Black, White, and Sumatran Rhinos all have two horns, while the Javan and Greater One-Horned Rhinos only have one horn. It has been commonly found that most female Javan Rhinos don’t have a horn at all.

 

While humans are the biggest enemy to these animals, there are several other species that threaten the extinction of Rhinos. The two species that most commonly prey on Rhinos are the lions in Africa and the tigers in Asia. Leopards, hyenas, wild dogs, and Nile crocodiles are also known to kill African rhino calves on occasion.
