If you’re planning a foothills wedding, you might want to check out the Celebrate Coloma Wedding Showcase this Saturday, Jan. 15 from 1 to 5 p.m. Meet area wedding vendors and caterers (yes, that means there will be food samplings) and tour seven different venues (including David Girard Vineyards)—all within a mile and half of each other. We’re told there will be prizes at each venue, so be sure to register when you get there. Gentleman, don’t fear, you don’t have to be dragged around from venue to venue. Stop in at the Sierra Nevada House (one of the venues), located on the corner of Highway 49 and Lotus Road, for some “Guy Time,” which translates into beer, football and food.
For more information—including, most importantly, addresses of all the venues—log onto events.dgvwines.com, then click on the “events” tab. Be sure to get directions before you head out. GPS and cell phone reception can be spotty in the valley. One last thing, the event is free! Happy new year, bride-to-be!
