Memorial Day is Monday, May 26th this year. Memorial Day, which occurs on the fourth Monday in May, is a day for remembering and commemorating men and women who died while serving in the United States Armed Forces. Memorial Day also typically marks the start of the summer vacation period.
The weather in our little town of Murphys has been splendid of late, and if you have a three day holiday the weekend of May 24-26, we would like to suggest a drive up to the Gold Country. There is so much to do in our area of the Motherlode. In our town of Murphys, there are dozens of wineries where wonderful prize winning wines can be sampled. There are also some great restaurants, live theater, golfing, cave tours, and amazing outdoor recreation areas nearby.
If you do come up here on Memorial weekend, you can sign up for a walking tour of historic Murphys, or a even a food tour that includes at least 8 food stops. (Call 800-407-8918 to sign up).
A visit to Murphys would not be complete without a visit to Marisolio Tasting Bar, at 488 Main Street in Murphys. We are open from 10 to 5 on the weekends, and would be so glad to introduce you to our wonderful extra virgin olive oils and balsamic condimentos. We would be happy to accommodate your group if you give us a call ahead of time at (209) 728-8853.
Please check back here next week for two salad recipes you will not want to miss!
If you are planning to stay over through Tuesday, May 27th, you might want to attend our Summer Grilling Cooking Class held at 10:00 AM and 6:00 PM on that day. Class fee is $30 (less $5 if you “bring a friend”) and will provide you with a full meal. Call us at (209) 728-8853 to reserve your space.
