Occidental Center for the Arts: Nov 10, 8-10pm. Gypsy Jazz!!! I have always considered bluegrass to be the most complicated acoustic music but Gypsy Jazz takes it up a notch. Anyone who claims to play this genre is very talented. I would see this group for sure if I was up there!!!
Occidental Center for the Arts: November 11, 730P: A german trio of violin, piano and cello. Hey, they played at Carnegie Hall and now they are scheduled in Occidental!! Thats the really cool thing about the small groups...they are willing to play at small venues. Sounds like a great evening. Dinner in Occidental then walk from the restaurant to the music venue literally 150 yards down the street and five minutes from the house!!!
Occidental Center for the Arts: November 18, 8-10: Celtic harp by a true virtuoso! Transport yourself to the Irish countryside as Patrick Ball spins tales and paints a picture with his harp. Like Nike says, just do it.
Howard Station: Yes, it is a culinary event! My hands down favorite breakfast spot. (It's cash only but there is an ATM.) You really should stop by there for breakfast. Occidental is a beautiful town and this place is a piece of history. Take a stroll through the old grove of trees (things to do tab) after breakfast!
Well, that should get you started. There are plenty of wineries, other great places to eat, road trips to take, hikes to enjoy etc all in my "things to do" or "outlying areas" tab. Or you could sit next to a bee hive and watch the bees. But if you do, sit about ten feet away as the little guard bees will poke their heads out and put the bead on ya!
