    The Music By The Bay concert with gourmet dinner sounds like a fantastic way to spend an evening. There are a group of us that enjoy attending different venues here in the valley. That is, of course, until we read the salmon being offered is farmed Atlantic and not the healthy wild salmon. Seriously? You lost us on that one.
