TAKE AIM THIS TOURIST SEASON
Hard to believe, but yes it’s time once again to begin focusing our attention on tourism this summer in Plumas County and the ever-so-important impact it has on our local economy.
With that in mind, we are already working on Feather Publishing Co.’s annual Plumas County Visitors Guide —it’s actually a work in progress all year long.
The full-color, high-quality magazine is packed full of information (last year it was 132 pages) detailing virtually everything our county has to offer to both visitors and locals alike. Some 90,000 copies will be distributed free to hundreds of locations in our region throughout 2015.

NEW YEAR’S EVE FESTIVITIES
To help you with your New Year’s Eve dinner and party plans, here is a brief look at some of what is being advertised in this week’s newspaper. Don’t wait until the last minute — be smart and make your reservations early.
Moon’s, the restaurant somewhere in Quincy, is offering prime rib or shrimp scampi with a complimentary glass of champagne and dessert on New Year’s Eve. Call for reservations and dinner/theatre “I Do, I Do” packages.
Also in Quincy, the Elks Lodge has two parties on the same evening. The first part of the evening gets underway with hors d’ oeuvres at 6 p.m. followed by a prime rib or Cornish game hen dinner at 7 p.m. Those tickets much be purchased in advance and are available from any Elks Lodge member or at the Ranchito Motel. At 9 p.m. revelers will welcome in 2015 (New York time) with champagne and party favors.
The second part of the evening gets underway at 9 p.m. and continues until 2 a.m. featuring DJ Outlaw for your dancing pleasure. At midnight revelers will welcome in the new year with a champagne toast.
Dinner, drinks, music and fun! The Nakoma Golf Resort & Spa at Gold Mountain near Cliois serving a decadent four-course feast next to the roaring fire in the Wigwam Room on New Year’s Eve from 5:30 to 8:30 p.m.
A specially prepared lavish five-course meal with complimentary sparkling wine is offered at Longboards Bar & Grill at the Plumas Pines Golf Resort in Blairsden: cocktails and appetizers at 7 p.m., dinner at 8 p.m. Dancing to the classic rock sound of the Mudbone Band follows. If you just want to enjoy the evening’s music and party, show up at 10 p.m. for a $10 cover charge.
With its unique charm and culinary expression, the Grizzly Grill in Blairsden is serving prime rib and roasted leg of lamb along with its regular menu on New Year’s Eve. It will also open for dinner at 5 p.m. on New Year’s Day.
In Greenville, the famed Main St. Dinner House is complementing its regular menu selections with a special lobster tail dinner from 5 to 8 p.m. on New Year’s Eve. Again, reservations are recommended.
