Land trust Concert/Florio's

Saturday night is the Mavis Staples/Lorraine Gervais concert at North Star House in Grass Valley. This is going to be a great event, with music, food vendors, wine, auctions and tours of the 10,700 sf house designed by Julia Morgan (you know, the Julia that designed Hearst Castle!). Anyhoo, I've been volunteering with the Land Trust for the event, and found out today that YOU can get a discount on tic's if you call the Nevada County Land Trust Office and "mention my name." WOW, I am important! It's a "don't miss" event, and the weather should cooperate perfectly. The grounds are being transformed, as hundreds of people have volunteered to help make it ready. We've even had inmates from Wayne Brown facility helping.
I was broken-hearted to see that Florio's Olive Oil Co burned up yesterday. The Mill St shop has the most amazing infused vinegars, olive oil (blood orange olive oil, pleasssseee) and gourmet items in the county, I swear. I am always singing their praises. Please Neil, please rebuild. Can't live without the stuff. It's so good it makes you wanna cry.
Missed the mini heat wave here, but it was 104 when we got to Richmond at 3pm on Tuesday. Now, that has to be a record. We play softball in Berkeley, fog central, and it was perfect at 8pm, with a full moon and temps in the 80's. Those are a rare treat in the East Bay.
