Not Hard-to-Swallow Sites

Here come the swallows! The San Juan Capistrano Heritage Festival, in full swing all month, culminates Saturday with the Swallows Day Parade. Among the restaurants you might consider in SJC: for continental fare, Cafe Mozart at 31952 Camino Capistrano, (714) 496-0212; for Mexican food, El Adobe Capistrano at 31891 Camino Capistrano, (714) 493-1163; for French and Belgian fare, L'Hirondelle at 31631 Camino Capistrano, (714) 661-0425, and for American-regional food, the Rio Grande Bar and Grill at the Capistrano Depot, 26701 Verdugo St., (714) 831-0232.

To anyone who missed the jazz and blues concert by Ron Ellington Shy at Gustaf Anders because I told you a week too late, my apologies. But here's the good news: Shy, a former member of the Drifters and the Coasters, has booked a return engagement for Sunday. He'll be joined again by the Don & Dewy Show (they wrote "Justine" and "I'm Leaving It All Up to You") and Don Hendricks on drums. The entertainment is from 1 to 5 p.m., and a hot-and-cold buffet (with the restaurant's own breads and desserts) will be served all day for $20. Gustaf Anders is in South Coast Plaza Village. Call (714) 668-1737 for reservations.
