Once you’ve taken a nice nap after filling up on Elkhart County 4-H Fair food, Flavor 574 has three stories you should keep on your radar this week.

SASSY’S MOVE TO GRANGER WILL OFFER MORE GLUTEN-FREE OPTIONS

Sassy’s Cafe at University Park Mall closed this summer, but will open again as Sassy’s Sandwich Shack Burgers & More on Monday, Aug. 3, in Granger. 

The casual-dining restaurant will have  reimagined menu with options for those who stick to a vegan, vegetarian or a gluten-free diet, according to previous Flavor 574 reporting

Burgers, classic fries, milkshakes, baked goods and more will be available to order. 

To see more unique menu items and hours, check out the full story on Flavor 574.

COMMON SPIRITS GIVES A TASTE OF WHAT’S TO COME FOR LOCAL CRAFT COCKTAIL SCENE

Common Spirits still doesn’t have a place to call home in Goshen, but supporters got a taste of what’s to come with a special sneak peek July 25. 

The couple behind the venture, Jami and Ryan Hawkins, teamed up with Blank Space to sample some cocktails and reporter Michelle Sokol took a break from her toasty home to go try an O.G. Mule. 

The Hawkins also plan to serve local food, show local art and bring in live, local music. 

THREE RECIPES TO TRY FOR NATIONAL WATERMELON DAY 

Some like it sweet, some like it salty. No matter what you prefer, celebrate the right way on National Watermelon Day on Monday, Aug. 3. 

We asked Elkhart Truth and Flavor 574 readers to settle a newsroom divided about whether or not it was acceptable to sprinkle salt on watermelon. 

After an overwhelming reply with votes and even new suggestions like soaked in vodka, sprinkled with Tajin or even cinnamon sugar, there was no clear winner. 

If you’re going to debate, though, at least do so over three delicious recipes
