At a glance: A super time

From page B2 | January 30, 2013 |

With the Super Bowl between the Ravens and the 49ers happening on Sunday, Feb. 3, there is a lot of focus on Baltimore and San Francisco. Obviously the big game is a big deal but there are other noteworthy items about the two team’s homes. On this date in 1781, Maryland became the last of the 13 original states to adopt the Articles of Confederation. In 1847 — not quite Gold Rush time — Yerba Buena was renamed San Francisco. Go Niners.

 

Great time

The El Dorado County Visitor’s Authority and the El Dorado County Chamber of Commerce deserve a big cheer for the great job done on the El Dorado Epicurean last Sunday. The restaurants taking part in the progressive culinary adventure also deserve a big cheer. Everyone on the 15 gastronomic sojourns had positive comments and are ready to make reservations for next year’s adventure. For those who did not get to take part in the dining adventure this year be sure to check out January 2014′s calendar of events and make a reservation. It is a fun and yummy time.

 

Personal fun

It’s Personal, 250 Main St in Placerville, was one of the stops on some of the Placerville El Dorado Epicurean itineraries and it was most enjoyable. The wine shop and gift boutique has some really neat things — like making a personal wine label for a gift — and the shop also has entertainment. On Friday, Feb. 1 there is a Friday night comedy open mic and this Saturday, Feb. 2 J. Woody is playing. Stop in for a super time. For more details call 530-303-3792.

 

Good cause

For some really good dining for a good cause, the 15th annual Crab Banquet at Perry Creek Vineyards, 7400 Perry Creek Road in Fair Play, on Saturday, Feb. 2 is the place to be. The crab feast is a benefit for the Pioneer Volunteer Firefighters Association. Seating starts at 5:30 p.m. and the feasting starts at 6 p.m. with hors d’oeuvres, clam chowder, Caesar salad, raviolis with sauce, sherbet with champagne, fresh cold cracked Dungeness crab with warm clarified butter, French bread, cheesecake and coffee. The price is $60 per person and will help raise funds to purchase structure fire clothing, self-contained breathing apparatus and other equipment for the fire department. For tickets call the Hudelsons at 530-620-3371.

 

Happy anniversary

Lofty Lou’s, 585 Main St. in Placerville, is having an open house on Friday, Feb. 1 to celebrate 20 years of doing business on Main Street. There are all kinds of nice things in Lofty Lou’s. For more information call 530-642-2270.

 

Rocking good

Powell’s Steamer Company and Pub, 425 Main St. in Placerville, keeps things rocking with a super lineup. On Saturday, Feb. 2 Frankie Soul is playing at 9 p.m. and on Thursday, Feb. 7 Jonny Mojo is playing. It is wonderful that El Dorado County has so many talented people and wonderful places to see and hear them. Call 530-626-1091 for the complete musical calendar.

 

Wines and jewelry

The Cameron Park Community Services District is hosting its third annual “Reds, Whites and Jewels” wine tasting and jewelry show on Saturday, Feb. 2 from 11 a.m. to 5 p.m. at the Cameron Park Community Center, 2502 Country Club Drive in Cameron Park. This is a fun way to check out jewelry, enjoy some El Dorado County wine and help the El Dorado Dog Owners Guild. For more information visit the Cameron Park Community Services District Website cameronpark.org; e-mail cpcsd@cameronpark.org or call 530-677-2231.

 

Dogging it

It’s go Niners at Crystal Basin Bistro, 3550 Carson Road in Camino. To keep the fans happy during the game there will be stadium dogs and other goodies and beer and wine specials. For more information call 530-303-3749.
