At a glance: At the boardwalk

From page B2 | June 26, 2013 |

Escabar_MimiThe first section of boardwalk in the world opened in Atlantic City on June 26, 1870. The nice beaches and good weather made the area a great place to visit and a railroad line from Camden, New Jersey helped transport summer vacationers to the beach. The boardwalk was built to keep sand out of the rail cars and the hotels.

 

More music

There used to be boardwalks in Placerville to keep dirt and mud from tracking into the shops and saloons. Thankfully that is not an issue now. Just take the sidewalk to It’s Personal, 250 Main St. in Placerville, for a fun line up of entertainment. On Thursday, June 27 Jeff McClain and Mac Rice are putting on a great night of jazz and blues from 6 to 8. On Friday locals star with Karaoke with Celeste starting at 8 p.m. On Saturday it is the talented Joaquin Fioresi performing at 8 p.m.

The Wine Smith, 346 Main St. in Placerville, is also presenting a wonderful musical line up with open mic hosted by Bill Gunn on Thursday, June 27. On Friday, June 28 the amazing Dan Crary and Friends are in concert from 8 to 10 p.m. and during the Bell Tower Brewfest on Saturday, June 29 Dana Le Blanc is playing at 8 p.m. For more information call 530-622-0516.

No need for a boardwalk to get to Sunset Sippin’ at Boeger Winery, 1709 Carson Road in Placerville, on Friday, June 28 from 6 to 9 p.m. Tamra Godey will be singing new songs with a sultry lilt, romantic songs perfect for dancing and some rocking Americana to serenade the sun as it sets. Sip some Boeger wine and enjoy Heyday Café’s famous handcrafted wood-fired oven pizzas. For more information go to boegerwinery.com/News.

Another Friday wine and music pairing takes place at Wine Down Fridays at Gold Hill Vineyard, 5660 Vineyard Lane in Placerville. This Friday, June 28 Chicken and Dumpling is playing until 9 p.m. Wine Down Fridays, on the second and fourth Fridays during summer, offer beer and wine by the glass, and minute chair massages and fun on the deck.

Wine, music and art
