There's really nothing like the security of a job to remove about a metric ton of stress from one's life, and I have to say it feels nice.  Sure, things are still tight because I'm still catching up on rent & other bills, but the light at the end of the tunnel is getting closer & closer everyday.  I won't be rollin' in dough, but at least I'll be able to breathe a little easier.  Read more...

Lucille's BBQ

Lucille's BBQ

I LOVE barbecue pork ribs. MMMMMMMMMMMMMMMMM. I am happy to try any barbecue place except for Texas style. Lucille's has been open in Rocklin for a while now, but I rarely head out that way anymore.

Tres Agaves Roseville celebrates its Jan. 21 tequila distillary event

Each month, Tres Agaves Roseville welcomes ambassadors from a Tequila distillery to celebrate that Tequila’s unique flavor profile and culture.  On Friday, Jan. 21 from 6:00p.m. to 10:00p.m. Tres Agaves Roseville will feature Jose Cuervo Tequilas and provide guests with the opportunity to learn first-hand how to craft Tres Agaves’ signature all-natural margaritas in a margarita making class. To add a new twist, specialty flavored agave nectars and rim salts will also be available for experimentation.

Classes last about 30-45 minutes and include education on the history and culture of making Tequila as well as a hands-on demonstration where each guest will make two of their own margaritas to enjoy. Classes will begin on the hour each hour starting at 5:30, 7:00 and 8:30 p.m.

Tres Agaves Passport members are $10 and non-members are $25. Class will include two cocktails plus a sampling of Jose Cuervo’s Reserva de la Familia Extra Anejo.
