Business Scene for the week of 1/23/19

Keep them coming
We’ve had a great response to our request for new photos — like this Taylorsville Rodeo shot — to feature in our Plumas County Visitors Guide. We are still seeking more pictures, especially ones of our various communities, so If you have a photo or photos you would like us to consider using in the 2019 edition we encourage you to submit them via email to [email protected]. We also need shots of snow activities, horses, antique shops, trains — photographs that depict all this county has to offer. Be sure to include details about where the photo(s) were taken, your phone number and permission for us to use them in our publication without compensation, just a photo credit. Deadline for submission is Feb. 15. Questions call Feather Publishing 283-0800. This photo was submitted by Louise West

REOPENED AND READY TO GO

After closing for 10 days to perform some remodeling, Sonja Partain has reopened her popular eatery, Graeagle Millworks. Some of the work they did includes new cabinets for displaying their products as well as reconfiguring the eating area. Sonja said to improve their food delivery service they also added a new oven and other kitchen equipment.  The Millworks is back to their regular hours 8:30 a.m. to 3 p.m. with the Wednesday night dinners resuming in spring.

NICHOLE’S OPENS SATURDAYS

Nichole Brashear now has her Portola business, Nichole’s Coffee Depot & Deli, open on Saturdays serving breakfast and lunch from 6 a.m. to 3 p.m. This local favorite is known for its tasty blends of espresso, cappuccino and lattes that are all made to order. They go perfectly with her breakfast burritos, bagels, muffins, assorted pastries and, of course, their soups, salads and sandwiches.

A HELPING HAND FOR PARADISE

Following the Brewing Lair’s lead, Lisa and Mike Kelly now carry Resilience beer at their Quincy restaurant, Moon’s. The Resilience Butte County Proud IPA has expanded beyond Northern California and has made its way across the nation with brewers donating 100 percent of their proceeds to Camp Fire relief efforts. The Sierra Nevada Brewing Company started brewing Resilience IPA and is now sharing the recipe with other brewers.

“Also, in an effort to raise money to purchase yearbooks for students of Paradise High School, Moon’s — in partnership with Quincy High School’s yearbook class — is donating a portion of proceeds from all our pizza sales through March. The campaign is called Books for Bobcats,” she said.

THE ENTERTAINMENT CONTINUES

It continues to be an impressive lineup of performers through February at The Drunk Brush in downtown Quincy. Manager Barbara Newman and owners Riccardo and Wendy Jacobus tell us that the live music has become very popular at their wine bar and lounge. It begins at 6 p.m. on Friday nights and is an easy listening blend of jazz, blues and folk by some of the area’s best-known artists. On Jan. 25: Penny & Dude; Feb. 1: Passive & Co.; Feb 15: The Back 40; and Feb. 22: it’s Doug and Meg Sheehy. The lounge is located on Grover Alley behind Flanigan Insurance and next to The Knook.

YOGA BENEFIT FOR RESOURCE CENTER

The Quincy Yoga and Wellness Center is holding four yoga classes each Saturday in February with the proceeds benefiting the Plumas Crisis Intervention and Resource Center. The first two Saturdays it’s yoga basics followed by rest and restore yoga on Feb. 16 and finishes with yoga for back care on Feb. 23. Classes are 10 to 11:30 a.m.

SPECIAL DINNER TREAT

Rob and Linda Hart, who used to own the Little Norway Resort at Almanor and now The Coventry Gardens located inside the historic Walker Mansion Inn in Westwood, are having a special dinner this Friday and Saturday, Jan. 25-26. It’s a 7-course meal served in two seatings, 5 p.m. and 7 p.m., featuring roast beef, Cornish game hen and parmesan-crusted fish. Rob said you can expect them to serve a special dinner at least once a month. Reservations: 258-6559.
