We are made welcome by the Maitre D' at the casino hotel
Boy, you can’t make this stuff up. My Mom used to live up on Talmont in North Shore Tahoe and I certainly feel welcome in these parts. We were here to play the High Sierra Brewing Company and play we did. Being jet lagged and all, I was up about 0300 so Barry and I had a chance to drive around and see some sights. First there was breakfast at the Comma Coffee House… actually we just dined there this morning too. Great food… and not a slot in sight.
Yep... my name in lights... sort of
We walked by the gig… it was still almost dark… we just took a look and walked on.
Coincidence? I think not...
All kinds of cool stuff in this town… including this great little church. Reminds me of a song. We had some time on our hands so we drove up into the hills on this beautiful, crisp, Fall day.
How nice does it have to get?
On our way back to the hotel, we stopped by The Lady Tamales. Now I know the GPS and the internet stuff calls it Ladies Tamales, but Fidelina Suarez… the Lady in Question calls it The Lady… and it was delicious… corn husk tamales… fresh. Lunch for Barry and myself came to $12.95. Go there… dig it. It’s the greatest!
