Ho Ho Ho!! Here we Go!  The countdown is on to December 25th.  In these fast-moving festive days, it is so easy to over-do, so try to take some time to relax every now and then to get together with family and friends…or just take a little time for yourself.  Come see us at the Gold Vine Grill, and give yourself a little break…You deserve it!

The Holiday Season can be pretty tough on our local businesses, as so many people shop downtown or in Folsom.  Please remember that we are here for your holiday parties (lunches or dinners), or we can cater a holiday party for you.  Or…you can just shop on-line while you are enjoying a great meal from the Gold Vine.   Better yet…why not gift your friends and family with a Gift Certificate from the Gold Vine Grill and/or a bottle of fabulous local wine?  Who wouldn’t love that?  And while Buck’s Bar is closed for a small stretch…just drive around Pleasant Valley Road…we’re worth it!

Our new menu is going over really well with all of you, and  we welcome your input and opinions.   Please realize that when we make a new menu, some things have to go.  Many people have expressed their lament over the absence of the Smoked Salmon Quesadilla from this menu.  We hear you, and rest assured, that item will likely reappear on our next menu.  There are also some items from the past menu that we can still prepare if you are really missing them.  Greg can still prepare Chicken Marsala or Chicken Picatta, as well as the Blackened or Grilled Salmon Filet with his great Roasted Red Pepper Sauce. It’s always challenging to add new items to the menu, because we know it “rocks the boat”.  On the other hand, it’s always good to have something fresh and new to try…right?

Sunday, December 3rd will be our 15th Annual Downtown Somerset Holiday Open House.  I had some confusion over which anniversary this actually was, so I just had to do the math.  We opened on November 29th, 2003, so we are now officially in our 15th year!  Please join us for our Open House as we celebrate 15 years in business with complimentary food, wine and music from 2:00 PM to 4:30 PM.  This is always a fun and festive time, so try to take a little break from the hustle and bustle, and raise a glass with your family & friends.

Just 9 days later, I will be turning 65!!  What?? How did this happen?!  It doesn’t seem like that long ago that we were celebrating my 60th birthday at the Norgaard’s on 12/12/12.  Truthfully, I’m grateful to actually be here to celebrate this milestone.  It’s hard to believe that age is here, but the Medicare mailings are assuring me that it really is!

We are filling up quickly for our New Year’s Eve 5-Course Gala Wine Paired Dinners.  We feature 2 seatings, the first from 5-7:30 PM, and the 2nd from 8:30-???  Check out the “Events” link to see the menu.  We feature 5 courses of great gourmet food, each paired with great hand-selected wines. Dinners are $75.00 per person for the first seating, and $85.00 per person for the 2nd seating (2nd seating includes a sparkling toast at the end of the evening).  Prices include all food, wine, tax and gratuity.  This is an awesome way to have a lovely New Year’s Eve meal without the hassle of driving to Placerville or Sacramento.  It is always a sell-out, so call soon.  This event is reservation only.

Please remember at this time of fun and festivities, that many of us have friends or family that are struggling with challenges.  Sometimes the holidays are the hardest times for those who are dealing with troubling issues, and a kind thought or word always means so much.
