Say goodbye to summer and hello to fall with fabulous seasonal menu selections at Sabor Cocina Mexicana like Pumpkin Flan, made fresh with a sugar pumpkin puree, cajeta, fresh-spiced cream and pumpkin seeds. Looking for lighter? Go for Sabor's Baby Kale Salad bursting with baby kale, red onions, currants, pumpkin seeds, queso fresco, sweet potato strips and the bright flavor of the homemade agave vinaigrette. Or try our fave: the Chile Relleno de Pavo: turkey piccadillo, pumpkin seeds and butternut squash sauce. Whatever you choose, wash it down with a made-right-now-just-for-you seasonal margarita like the Pineapple Jalapeno, Hibiscus Flower or Tamarindo. 259-9002

Even sweeter: 50 cents from every Golden Eagle purchased at Wolf Creek goes to a remarkable non-profit organization in Santa Clarita as part of their Community Pints program; the October recipient is the Sheila R.
