Dinner and a Movie, Garden Tour, and Murder…

Hey Folks, Heard Around Folsom’s got some tips for a great weekend… The Back Bistro is now open in their new location at the Palladio Center. Congrats to Jeff and Gail Back for successfully serving outstanding food, wine, cocktails and company for 10 years! They’re next door to the movie theater, making it great for a dinner-and-a-movie date. Late night happy hour, too… Wanna see some spectacular gardens and get some great tips? The annual Folsom Garden Tour is happening Saturday and Sunday.  Tickets are reasonably priced, and they will have plants for sale along with master gardeners on hand to tell you how to not kill them, and of course, their famous bake sale as well… For something completely different, visit one of Folsom’s best kept secrets, the Sutter Street Theater . This little theater company puts on outstanding plays and musicals. Right now, through Sunday, you can check out Murder on the Nile… In the news, City Manager Evert Palmer has announced his retirement, after working for the city for over 22 years. He’s a great guy, and has helped guide Folsom’s growth into the the beautiful little city you know and love today. He’s a big supporter of the arts, and from what I hear, a pretty good guitarist. Best to you, Evert!… On the real estate front, housing inventory has increased slightly, with 103 homes for sale in Folsom, plus 5 condos. Not enough to meet the demand, but we should see more folks listing now that the weather is better and the  traditional buying season is starting… Speaking of better weather, Folsom looks great on sunny spring days, and if you get a chance, take a walk, bike, jog, kayak or paddle board along Folsom Lake or Lake Natoma. Trees are full, lots of wildflowers and wildlife… Go out and enjoy!

Wine Tasting, Cars, Coffee, Antiques…

Spring has kicked into high gear, and this will be a great weekend to get out and celebrate it… Let’s start with our weekly car show. Did you know we’ve got one? That’s right, ‘Cars and Coffee’ happens every Saturday from 8am to 10am at the Palladio Center, and features classic cars from the 20’s and 30’s to modern times. It’s free and fun… Folsom Pickers has their big Antique and Vintage Market on Sunday. Pick up some  vintage, farmhouse, shabby hand crafted items, homemade, repurposed, furniture, home decor, collectibles and antiques, and much more… You know what’s across the street from there? Why, it’s Red Bus Brewing Company. They’re family friendly, you can bring your own food, or get a bite from one of the visiting food trucks. Oh, and they have beer… Do you prefer wine? Head on up to El Dorado County for the annual Passport Weekend. Get yourself a designated driver for this one, as your ticket gets you in to sample at 20 wineries. Each one unique, and with food and music, too…Me, I’ll be running in the annual Giant Race at Raley Field. Wish me luck… Being a Realtor, I’m going to be working, too. We’ve seen a slight increase in homes for sale in Folsom this week. We are sitting at 90 (plus 8 condos). Not enough for the demand, but slowly increasing… That’s it for now. Get out there and enjoy this little slice of paradise…
