3 new and wonderful reasons to visit Nevada City

First, the Crazy Horse Saloon on Commercial St. has reopened (same owners) as a Frozen Yogurt parlor, with a grocery selection. Going there tomorrow. Heard it's pretty cool, and pretty cool.
Second, Pete's Pizza in Grass Valley has opened a parlor in NC, and you can buy by the slice, which is ABOUT TIME. Why should you have to commit to a whole pizza when a slice will do? Third, a new wine tasting room, (not sure what st) which makes it 5 tasting rooms. How fun is it to hop from wine shop to wine shop, then make a return trip to pic up your fav's. Loving it. Indian Springs Winery on Broad/Pine always has fun evening events too, if you have not checked that out.
So many beautiful homes in our neighborhood for sale right now. Just came back from an open house at Toni's on corner of Nugget/Pasquale, around the corner from here, a really lovely serene 3 bedroom/2 bath house. Her husband Bill, (RIP) was more than a nice guy. He was a great woodwooker. The house has so many beautiful custom touches. The master bathroom just makes you want to jump in with it's hardwood surround tub. The kitchen screams "throw a party and invite everyone you know." The covered deck off the living room is perfect for snuggling and watching the snow fall (or the leaves) and has a trap door that takes you down to garage, plus an inside route to garage. All new paint, with a 2 car attached garage and shed. Too many custom touches to name. And she is asking $265K. Are you kidding???? 15515 Nugget. Check it out.
Missed the Airfest~Friday night and Sat. only. Too bad, it's the best, and it's every other year. Oh well! I thought it was Sunday too.
The Union had a story about a group of people who had planted vintage roses at the cemetery on Red Dog (the one on the right coming up Red Dog towards Quaker Hill). I did a little detour through it today and was amazed at the huge collection of blooming plants that are now thriving there. It has a transformed that gray, drab, but totally interesting historical graveyard into a Renoir painting! If you like graveyards (I admit, I do) you must stop and "smell the roses." Whoever you are, you guys did a great job of cheering up a boneyard. Many Nevada City founding fathers/mothers buried there. So interesting to live in the midst of such California History. I'll take pics to share next time. Wish the Union would do follow up stories on that sort of thing with pics. Some good news would be nice once in a while.
