Travelers making their way along I-5 between San Francisco and Los Angeles have a new quick and delicious bright spot on their journey. Harris Ranch Inn & Restaurant has added the Express BBQ, a small outpost inside the Shell gas station, just west of the restaurant complex.

As the temperature warms, many women are sporting their “culottes”- a short, wide-legged pant.

They are a wallet-friendly option for upcoming spring celebrations like Mother’s Day and graduations.
