Afternoon Music at Tom's Farms

Let's share a relaxing afternoon with friends and live music at Tom's Farms.  (If you can't make it at noon, come at 1 or 2... or whenever. Music is from 12:30 to 5:00)   It's nice to sit around the little lake and sip something cool or have a bite to eat (we'll get there early to grab a good spot).

Feel free to bring your friends and family, even the family dog!  This is a great kid-friendly place.  We should be able to get a table, but bring lawn chairs or a blanket if you can. Last time we had a pretty good size group show up, but there's plenty of room for everyone.  We'll be on the south side of the pond, there's usually lots of parking available in the dirt lot on that side.

They always have good bands playing, plus there's all kinds of food available, from Senior Tom's for Mexican, pizza at the wine & cheese shop, to a variety of selections from the burger joint.

From their web site, tomsfarms.com:

"His parents said that Tom wanted to be a farmer from the day he was born in Kansas City, Missouri. When he turned five, they let him work at his father's produce stand. And the rest, as they say, is history.

Tom moved west in the early 70's and leased some land in Lake Elsinore to house his first produce stand. He did so well that the owner of the land decided to covet it for himself, and sent Tom packing. Driving home to Anaheim, slightly brokenhearted, but with his boundless energy, strong work ethic, and unwavering integrity still intact, he found an idyllic spot in Temescal Canyon, right below the Cleveland National Forest. He named his place Tom's Farms. The produce was fresh and the people were friendly. People came from miles away, and Tom's Farms became a favorite destination stop for travelers.
Tom eventually bought the land, and the place grew and grew. In 1974, Tom opened a 3,500 square foot produce stand. In 1977, a hamburger restaurant was added, and the opening of Interstate 15 in 1978 provided easy access for visiting tourists. Today, the property has grown to include a variety of shops, restaurants, and attractions for family entertainment. "

    Turned out not too hot after all. In fact it was quite pleasant in the shade with a cooling breeze. Good friends and music just made it better :-)

    I probably won't make today as I have the g/kids and their aunt is going to H Crusade so I'm stuck in Corona!

    August 25, 2013

    • Sharon

      Liz, although you are stuck in Corona, it is a blessing that their Aunt is going to Crusade. I will wave hello to her as I am going too!!!

    We should have a pretty good crowd, probably more than 40 people between both groups. Remember to bring a lawn chair if possible. Note that outside food is "officially" not allowed (don't bring coolers), but they do have good eats there. We'll stake out as much shade as possible, but if anyone has an EZ-up or large umbrellas that you can bring without too much trouble, that might be helpful (just leave them in the car until we know if they're needed).

    I'm seeing less than 100 degrees today--around 96--on the weather channels for Riverside through Elsinore. So it should be okay. There are indoor areas where anyone can wander through to cool off, if necessary.

    Going to the Dodger Game with my son instead, but I hope everyone has fun!

      OH Dina your so sweet the heat would melt you .

      August 24, 2013

    • Dina

      Yes it will. 104? Yikes

      August 25, 2013

  • Lonnie

    Yes, it will be warm, but I will be there. I can't blame anyone who doesn't make it because of the heat though. And since a number of people have said they hope we can do it another time, I will schedule a repeat for September 15; it should be much cooler then. For those do make it today, we'll hit the shade, down lots of iced tea, and stay however long we feel like it!

    August 25, 2013

  • Keertana

    Yikes! yep it's going to be HOT! hope we find some shade, if at all! I certainly don't need a tan :)

    August 12, 2013

    • Karen

      I am going by that way Liz if you still need a ride, but I don't know how long I will be staying.

      August 24, 2013

  • Gloria T.

    Unfortunately, I won't be there tomorrow either. I don't do well in the heat. Hope every one has a great time. Look forward to seeing you all soon.

    Was planning on riding my motorcycle over Liz or I would pick you up but I just realized I am going to Harvest Crusade that day. You guys have fun.

    August 12, 2013

    • Lonnie

      Well, I'm sure Liz wouldn't want you to ride your motorcycle over her anyway LOL Sorry you can't come though.

      Hahahahaha, funny how lack of puncuation changes a sentence. Surely as spry as Liz is, she would be able to leap over my speeding motorycle in one bound!!!!
