Heard Around Folsom – Full Lake, Red’s Blues, Wine and Dine,

Posted on: May 18, 2018

Folsom Lake level May 18 2018

Have you seen or heard? Folsom Lake is 96% full, which is 120% of the average for this time of year.  The lake level usually peaks about June 1, and the dam operators draw down from there, usually bottoming around December 1. I don’t know if this means a nice long boating season, as we still need steady water flowing down from the Sierras. We’ll see about that, but for now, just beautiful… It’s time once again for the Folsom Rotary Club’s annual Wine and Dine. Happening Sunday, you’ll get the chance to try wine and beers from the around the region, as well as tasty treats from local restaurants, proceeds go toward a great cause, and it’s only forty bucks!  Tickets here … Red’s Blues plays Sunday at 3pm at Powerhouse Pub. What? You didn’t know they had live blues at powerhouse every Sunday? It’s true! Bring your axe and stick around for the blues jam session at 7pm…. As for me, I’ve got my grandson in town. I think we’ll head out to the Folsom Zoo Sanctuary to see the local critters, maybe a train ride, and a visit to Snook’s … Go out and make it a great one!

Well folks, it’s Cinco de Mayo weekend, and the margaritas will be flowing. Lots of parties to choose from. Hacienda del Rio‘s got live bands from 5 to 10p in their parking lot… Powerhouse Pub‘s got Inspector 71 playing, with dj at Scarlet’s… Cantina Alley in Sac has a party goin’ on from 3 to midnight. Live bands… There’s Cinco de Old Sacto in Old Sacto, of course… and The Union in Roseville has a big one going on as well. Whereever you go, bring a designated driver or catch a Lyft. You don’t want to spend the rest of the night with the cops… Speaking of cops, you can meet up with them on friendlier terms at Folsom Police Foundation’s ‘Meat and Greet‘ barbecue. Meet Folsom’s finest, have a burger or a dog, check out some cool equipment, and your $10 donation goes to the Foundation’s youth programs… Also happening on the 5th is the Historic Murer House Foundation’s annual Italy on Wheels, featuring classic Italian cars and bikes, with pizza and Italian beer, too!… Work it all off Sunday at the 8th annual Great Scott Bike and Walk  event. Scott Road and the surrounding area will be closed from 8am to 3pm. Enjoy 30 miles of country roads on bike or on foot… Just another beautiful Folsom weekend. Be safe, and have a great one.
