COYOTE CREW TAKES SOME TIME OFF

This is certainly something they normally don’t do but The Coyote Bar & Grill in Graeagle is closed and will reopen in mid-February. Owner and Executive Chef Terry Moore and his entire crew are taking a much-needed break from what was yet another very busy season and some are heading south of the border. The trip to Oaxaca, Guanajuato and Colima, Mexico will give them a chance to explore culture, indulge in culinary delights and simply get a break from the daily grind. But rest assured, the crew will be back, refreshed and ready to go for the restaurant’s 2020 new season.

ARTS GALLERY ALSO CLOSED

As they do every January, The Plumas Arts Gallery in downtown Quincy is also closed for a brief stint and will reopen Friday, Feb. 7. The featured artist when they reopen will be the paintings by the very gifted Meadow Valley resident Michael Kerby.
