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!

Dinner and a Movie, Garden Tour, and Murder…

back bistro

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!
