Spring has Sprung!

 

Folsom is beautiful year round, but especially in spring. Flowers and trees blooming, sun shining, and the trails full of runners, walkers and cyclists, which reminds me; be nice to each other and share the trail. Slow down, and pick up after yourself and your dog...Spring also means it's time for the Folsom Eggstravaganza, where 25,000 eggs are hidden across 4 fields for 4 different age groups, and then wiped out in seconds. It's fun, and quite a spectacle.. Happens this Saturday 3/31... After that's over, you might need a beer. Head on over to the brand new Out of Bounds Craft Kitchen and Biergarten, opening Saturday at 13407 Folsom Blvd (they've got wine, too!)...Speaking of beer, Red Bus opened a couple of weeks ago. Check them out, too... PowerHouse Pub has some great live music this weekend, kicking off with Love and Theft on Friday... on the real estate front, the usual spring bounce hasn't really started, with only 69 homes for sale in Folsom today, compared to 96 at this time last year...fingers crossed...that's it for now...go have some fun!

Chris Cain, Daniel Castro and Mile Schermere  will be at Powerhouse Pub on Saturday.  Steve Wall (of Beer Dawgs fame) will be at The Canyon on Saturday as well.

 

Can't wait to check out Out of Bounds new digs!

 

Will have to check out Red Bus as well

 

Just tried Marly and Moo. Don't know why I never got by there before. Service was EXCEPTIONAL (shout out to Molly), despite being packed full.  I enjoyed the shortrib sandwich with tots and a beer. perfect for a sunny day.

First, let’s talk about water. Folsom Lake is at 83% of capacity, and this week’s storm is expected to dump up to 7 inches of rain in the foothills, melting snow, and sending all of that water down hill.

Folsom dam operators are dumping water at a rate of about 20,000 cubic feet per second to make room. Good thing we’ve got the new spillway. Still, with all of that water coming from the sky, there will be areas of flooding throughout the region. Get your sand bags, and be safe…

About the waterfront, the City of Folsom is hosting a series of community workshops to present and discuss plans for a proposed ‘River District’ along Lake Natoma. Judging from the online discussions so far, while some folks are for it, and a pretty passionate and vocal group against it. Hear more about the plan, and make your voice heard April 11 from 5 to 7pm at the Folsom Community Center. You can bone up on it here (see page LU25)…


Also happening at the community center is the annual Folsom Wine and Jazz, Saturday night (the 7th). This is a great event, where you can taste food from local restaurants, wine from foothill wineries, and bid on great silent auction items while listening to Folsom’s award-winning high school jazz bands. They are so good, you’d think they were pros. Get your tickets now…


Speaking of wine, the Back Bistro (formerly the Back Wine Bar) is relocating to the Palladio in a big, beautiful new space, and they are hiring! The have openings for looking for all positions, line cooks, servers, bartenders, dishwashers. Email Jeff@backbistro.com…


Lastly, I asked my wife for her 3 favorite cocktails in town, and in no particular order; Mama’s Bloody Mary at the Sutter Club, The Jalapeno Martini at Land Ocean, and a White Linen from Scarlet’s, where she gives a slight edge to the ones made by Jennafer. That’s it for now.

Got something we should know about?

Interesting stuff going on around town... I popped by the Folsom Community Center yesterday to join about 50 others in saying goodbye to Folsom Police Chief Cynthia Renaud. Among the crowd were some of her officers, some city workers, and regular citizens who wanted to show appreciation for her 7 years of service. She's headed off to lead the Santa Monica Police Department. Good luck Chief, and be safe out there...  This just in, Folsom City Manager Evert Palmer has named Commander Rick Hillman as our new police chief. Commander Hillman has been with Folsom PD since 1995. I first met him many years ago, when I worked on some parent education seminars on teen drug and alcohol abuse.  Great guy. Long time resident. Nice to see them hiring from within. Congrats, Chief!... Arthur Murray Dance Center invites you to a free celebration of 3rd anniversary here in Folsom, promising mucho margaritas, nachos, and of course dancing... The Folsom Historic District is holding their annual Spring Arts and Crafts Fair on Sunday... Also, the immensely popular new Out of Bounds Brewing Co is having a grand opening celebration all weekend long. Check it out... That ought to keep you busy.

Spring has kicked into high gear, and this will be a great weekend to get out and celebrate it… Let’s start with our weekly car show. Did you know we’ve got one? That’s right, ‘Cars and Coffee’ happens every Saturday from 8am to 10am at the Palladio Center, and features classic cars from the 20’s and 30’s to modern times. It’s free and fun… Folsom Pickers has their big Antique and Vintage Market on Sunday. Pick up some  vintage, farmhouse, shabby hand crafted items, homemade, repurposed, furniture, home decor, collectibles and antiques, and much more… You know what’s across the street from there? Why, it’s Red Bus Brewing Company. They’re family friendly, you can bring your own food, or get a bite from one of the visiting food trucks. Oh, and they have beer… Do you prefer wine? Head on up to El Dorado County for the annual Passport Weekend. Get yourself a designated driver for this one, as your ticket gets you in to sample at 20 wineries. Each one unique, and with food and music, too…Me, I’ll be running in the annual Giant Race at Raley Field. Wish me luck… Being a Realtor, I’m going to be working, too. We’ve seen a slight increase in homes for sale in Folsom this week. We are sitting at 90 (plus 8 condos). Not enough for the demand, but slowly increasing… That’s it for now. Get out there and enjoy this little slice of paradise…
