Books & Snacks on the Other Side of the Mountain

Above: Terri goofs around at the Bus Stop in Running Springs.

One of the reasons I enjoy dropping by the Bus Stop in Running Springs (beyond the great food) is because we always get a warm greeting–and get to laugh at the local antics. Terri is always full of surprises and interesting information. She has a new T-shirt in development which we think will be a hit.

The perk was that Lynn of Brown Bag Books was outside selling her wares. I’ve met Lynn before but never had the pleasure of seeing her in action. Great concept and image…and really great collection of books. Both HM and I came home with treasures–I keep attempting to weed out my bookcases but I am a hopeless bibliophile.

We spent a few hours munching, reading, and drinking beverages at the Bus Stop. HM discovered that Terri has the BEST homemade almond toffee in existence.

Always worth a stop on your way up or down the mountain….

BTW: Mountain Top days is fast approaching–August 2nd

DOO DAH! Locally we are heading into another big weekend with the 31st annual Doo Dah Parade. NSIA is in need of volunteers–about ten to be more specific. Let Lori Gardener know if you can help out.

Bluegrass, Bluejeans & Beyond (9am-10pm)
Instead of the annual gala, this year support the Big Bear Discovery Center’s first annual Bluegrass, Bluejeans & Beyond festival culminating the 10th anniversary of the Discovery Center. Ticket sales benefit Forest Aid, an SBNFA series of fund raising events for forest restoration powered by the Great Seeds Youth Leadership Restoration Team.

10am to 5pm are Sligo Rags, Scott Gates & Pacific Ocean Bluegrass Bank, The Mill Creek Boys, South Coast, Bear Bones, Holcomb Valley Boys, Mountain String Band, Phil Christie and the Big Bear Valley CATS Kids.

Opening the evening entertainment will be the Ramblin’ Rangers, SBNF Rangers, followed by headlining bands, Black Irish Bluegrass Band and Cody Bryant and The Rider of the Purple Sage.

Fee: Tickets were available for the dayfest ($10), eveningfest ($30) and best buy combo day and evening ticket for $35. They have always sold out for the gala and I doubt this is any different but you can check at (909)866-3437. Parking is free.
