This blog post is current as of its initial posting but I will update it should I get more information. In the DJ business we referred to new year’s eve as the amateur drinker’s night so please be careful out there. We have several taxi services including Riley Cab and Maria’s Midnight Rides. Make sure to keep those numbers handy! As usual I've linked the businesses to their Yelp pages where possible.
There are so many wonderful treats that can trigger childhood holiday memories. For us things like Stollen and anise cookies come to mind as a symbol of things we enjoyed growing up at this magical time of year. But we've stumbled across a new item that absolutely represents the season and is also ridiculously delicious plus easy to make.
Nothing says "winter" or the holidays like pine cones and these edible ones are the perfect treat for your holiday and can be made even more festive with a few pomegranate seeds that look just like the real berries.
Recently we got a very special visitor who came to celebrate Thanksgiving with us. This visitor has been to vacation spots all over the US on a tour that started in 2011 and is presently happening through Northern California. While this celebrity is known to many, it celebrates each of its visits with grace and dignity - and offers a seat to the weary. We were part of The Red Chair Travels, a very unique cross-country journey.
Both Peggy and I are big fans of Charles Phoenix, a gentleman who Peggy went to high school with who has become quite well known for celebrating Americana in so many forms. Phoenix is a character who has been on many national TV programs including ones with Martha Stewart, Conan O'Brian and others. He got his start finding some great slides at garage sales and has built a world of notoriety in celebration of Americana in many forms.
