Manager Linda Robertson tells us Jan. 7, you will find Firehouse Thrift in Portola in its new location at 208 W. Sierra Ave.
SOMETHING NEW AT CHAMPIONS
Palate-pleasing gourmet soups have been added to the menu at Champions Pizza and Wings in Quincy’s Plumas Pines Shopping Center. Manager Tim Schooler said they will feature a different soup daily.
...AND SPEAKING OF FOOD
Scott and Delores Satterlee have added buffalo, venison and elk burgers to their menu at Mill Creek Fish & Chips in East Quincy next to Sports & Shorts. With the holidays (which usually means lots of company) upon us, don’t forget that they still prepare tri-tips and ribs in their huge smokehouse on request.
RESTAURANT OFFERS TWO FOR ONE
That delightful Italian restaurant in Cromberg, Trattoria Rosa, will close in January for the winter with a few exceptions. But first: To show their appreciation they are offering a buy one, get one free deal on all entrees Dec. 26-Jan. 2. You might make a note, they will be open Valentine’s Day with owner and chef Patrick Kenny and wife LaVelle preparing a few special meals for couples enjoying that special night out and served with a complimentary glass of champagne. And after the Longboard races at Johnsville, they’ll be open serving their popular gourmet pizzas (which will soon be available frozen).
MONTE CARLO NIGHT AT THE CAP
With the proceeds benefiting Feather River College Rodeo, the Capitol Saloon in Quincy is holding a Monte Carlo night New Year’s Eve. Billed as a black tie affair, the price of admission includes a 200-chip buy-in for pre-sale only. Manager (and bartender) Steve Wallick has arranged for Plumas Transit to provide rides. Tickets can be purchased at Body & Soul, Classic Image or at the Cap.

HOMEBUYERS TAX CREDIT EXTENDED`
The federal tax credit for home buyers the president signed into law recently was set to expire Nov. 30, but has been extended until Apr. 30, 2010. It was also expanded to include existing homeowners who have lived in their primary residences for five consecutive years out of the last eight years. First-time homebuyers may still be eligible for a tax credit of up to $8,000, while existing homeowners may receive a credit of up to $6,500. The bill also increases the qualifying income limits, and taxpayers can claim the credit on purchases completed in 2010 on their 2009 income tax returns. Ask your Realtor for all the details.
