I just spent another GREAT day in one of my favorite places here in the foothills...Nevada City. It's just a half hour away from Auburn, and the setting is truly storybook. In fact, Hallmark used this as a location for one of their Christmas specials. I think it was called The Christmas Card.
This past Sunday, however, I cruised up the hill with some friends of mine for an outing centered around a production of The Hotel on the Corner of Bitter and Sweet produced locally by CATS and staged at the historic Nevada Theater. First, of course, we shared a great meal at Pine Street Cafe. As usual, the line was out the door and the wait was worth it. And as always, the food did not disappoint...fresh, creative, and delicious.
We needed to walk away a few calories, so we strolled up and down Broad Street and just couldn't resist stopping along the way at a few of the wonderful shops. Naturally, we couldn't leave without a prize purchase or two.
The highlight was the play. All of us had read the book and loved it, but frankly we just couldn't see how it could be adapted for the stage. Wow! Fantastic! Beautifully staged and directed, this play captured the essence of the book in a very thoughtful and creative way. It's playing through May 9, so if you get an opportunity to see it, make your reservations now. They are experiencing many full houses.
