Filmed at the Community of Writers Conference at Squaw Valley, the series contains advice from such well-known authors as Amy Tan, Anne Lamott, Janet Fitch, and Mark Childress.

November 4 – On The Town–Tell Me Something Good

Yesterday I was On The Town at Sierra Mountain Coffee Roasters (and Tomes), where there is always something good brewing, something delicious cooking and shelves of quality used books to browse and buy.   I splurged and had a delicious sweet, chi latte and a really delicious frittata, and was surprised to learn that the menu has several gluten free items. When you’re in the Brunswick Basin, be sure to stop by; have a taste, and pick up a good read.

My guesHoliday Open Housets were Steve Rosenthal, owner of Tess’ Kitchen Store, http://tesskitchenstore.com/kitchen-cookware-bakeware-cutlery/and Julia Jordan, Executive Director of the Grass Valley Downtown Association http://www.historicgrassvalley.com/. We were talking about the upcoming Holiday Open House on Saturday, November 9 from 10 a.m. to 5 p.m.  There is a lot going on in town this coming weekend, but if you want to launch the holiday season in style with shopping, a little wine-tasting, lots of in store discounts, door prizes, giveways, cooking demonstrations, and much more then the Holiday Open House is the place to be.  Julia told me that if you can’t find what you’re looking for call 530-272-8315, and they will help you find it.  How sweet is that!  Talk about something good.

While you’re at the Open House, be sure to stop by Tess’ and enter the raffle. There’s no charge and you have a chance to win some great prizes.  While you’re there, check out Tess’ Cooking Class Schedule. There’s everything from cooking Holiday Side Dishes, making Thanksgiving dinner, Holiday Baking and so much more. There’s even a Knife Skills class.

If you happened to miss the show, click on the link below and listen to the podcast.

When you have “something good” you’d like me to post, or if you would like to be a guest on the show, please email: jan@janfishler.com.

On Monday November 11 On The Town will be broadcast from the Gold Miners Inn/Holiday Inn Express in downtown Grass Valley. The program will be of special interest to veterans and their families.  Be sure and tune in at 12:30 p.m.

Thanks for listening :-)
