St. Patrick’s Day
Folks who miss chef Richard Johnston’s cooking, since the closure of The Royal Oak, are in for a treat on St. Patrick’s Day. On March 17, beginning at 5 p.m., Johnston and Ricky Granados, owner of the Borderline in Cedar Glen, will be dishing up Irish favorites. On the menu will be corned beef and cabbage, of course, as well as lamb chops—served with mashed potatoes and vegetables—and shepherd’s pie. There will be live entertainment by 60 Grit, the local blues band that has taken the mountain by storm. Granados said there will also be drink specials—like Guinness and Jameson Irish whiskey. He suggests making a reservation; call (909) 336-4363. The Borderline is located at 29020 Oak Terrace in Cedar Glen, CA.
As the cast of Lend Me a Tenor rehearses and prepares for their opening night—March 20 with a preview on March 19—at the Tudor House, they are working at more than just learning their lines and blocking. They are also working on becoming a unit, a coalesced group of actors who will present Ken Ludwig’s play in a fresh way night after night.
‘Blue Jeans & Bling’
For many of the students who are supported by the UCLA Mountain Bruins scholarships, those funds are the only thing that makes it possible for them to attend college at all. Folks who attend this year’s Mountain Bruins fund-raiser—called “Blue Jeans & Bling”—will have a chance to help support students like these while enjoying some of Chef Brian’s fabulous food and enjoying the ambiance of the UCLA Conference Center. On the menu for the March 23 event are Santa Maria-marinated tri-tip, honey-baked baby back pork ribs, citrus-glazed free range chicken, jumbo shrimp in barbecue pepper butter, chocolate whiskey cake and strawberry rhubarb cake. The auction items at this event are always a big draw. Bid on a private jet ride to Sedona for four for lunch, athletic balls from UCLA signed by this year’s teams, a day of sailing in Long Beach and dinner at the yacht club, two nights at the Lake Arrowhead Resort and Spa with dinner for two and massage, sideline passes to the Oregon-UCLA football game, a gourmet barbecue dinner at the home of a local family, art by local artists, a first edition of selected stories of T.C. Boyle. Music for dancing will be provided by Rachel Right & the Wrongs. To make reservations for Blue Jeans & Bling, which will start at 5 p.m. at the UCLA Conference Center, stop in at The Lake House in Cedar Glen; Hot Shots, Blue Jay; Tiques & Treasures, Skyforest; or The Grapevine, Lake Arrowhead Village. Call (909) 337-8200 for more information. Source: Mountain News
