Jazz and Blues by the Bay in Sausalito! This summertime concert series is famous for great music, stunning views and is a great time to spend with family and friends. Concerts are every Friday, May 31st to August 23rd, from 6:30pm – 8:00pm at Gabrielson Park in Downtown Sausalito. Meet at 6pm at the park - more specific location TBD closer to the event. Bring blankets, food and drinks (yes you can bring alcohol). Dress warm - it can get cold, foggy and windy in Sausalito! Carpooling strongly recommended. Parking is very difficult and fills up fast. Hope to see you there! Bring friends if you like.
I've reserved a group tour at this wonderful little farm in Petaluma. They grow lavender, have honey bees and sell their wares. The tour is about 45 minutes to an hour and then we can buy things at their store or walk around the property for a bit. Cost is $15 per person. I'll have to put down a deposit but everyone can pay for their own ticket in person at the farm. After we tour, we could got get some lunch, coffee, etc in Petaluma. From their website (www.lavenderbeefarm.com): "Amid the rolling hills of Sonoma County, our family honey farm plays host to over 5,000 lavender plants and multiple hives. Our farm is chem-free; no pesticides or chemical fertilizers, for the health of our bees, plants, and you! We currently grow three varieties of lavender: English Lavender, Provence Lavender, and Lavender Grosso. Each cultivar offers something special and all of our plants are grown naturally without fertilizers or pesticides so that you can feel confident using our lavender products in your recipes and in your home. Harvesting and drying are performed by hand, and the greatest care is taken to ensure the pure and long-lasting fragrance of all of our award-winning lavender products. Here on the farm, we tend our own beehives and produce our award-winning gourmet honey. Our honey is all natural and raw, and we never add fragrances or flavorings. We are especially proud of our Lavender Honey, which received the Gold Ribbon at the prestigious 2006 Sonoma County Harvest Fair. The farm has had a bumper crop of lavender this year - the plants grew beautiful long stems and bright colored blossoms that attracted all of our three millon wild naturally raised bees. We do not use ANY man made products on our bees and they are thriving in this environment! The honey is not heated in the extraction process so the taste is all natural and fresh. Our Petaluma Lavender Blossom Honey sells out every year and loyal customers know to buy it while annual supplies last."
This is now a monthly event (the second Tuesday of the month) as 7 women in our group attended the April night - and adopted the name "Femme Fatales"! Best to arrive at 5:30 if possible to get a table...event begins at 6:30. If you can't arrive that early, no problem, a few of us will be there to save a table! See you there. :)
