Bulletin, Progressive, Record, Reporter Wednesday, March 10, 2010 9B ARTS and ENTERTAINMENT Taste Of Plumas comes together again April 10 There is only one food and wine event that showcases culinary artistry from all over Plumas County. That event is the Taste of Plumas, set for Saturday, April 10, at the Plumas Sierra County Fairgrounds. The Taste of Plumas gives you a chance to enjoy a tasty night out while you also offer support to one of Plumas County&apos;s most active commu- nity and cultural service or- ganizations. "Plumas Arts has coordi. nated this event in this form for four years now," said Di- rector Roxanne Valladao. Plumas Arts values its rep- utation as a producer of quali- ty, multifaceted events. "The Taste is one of our pri- mary Fun-draisers, but it is more than that," added Val- ladao. "We do all we can to honor and bring together these artists and owners who create in fine food and wines. "We also provide an oppor- tunity for local businesses to meet and greet a dining pub- lic that is their target audi- ence. Best of all, we come to- gether as a community and we enjoy each other -- it's a great event." These restaurants and busi- nesses from all parts of Plumas County have already committed: from Portola and the east side: Lena's Cantina, Whitehawk, Longboards Bar & Grill, Mt Tomba; from the Quincy area: Alley Cat Caf6, American Valley Baking, Caf6 Le Coq, The Drunk Brush, Dunn's Coffee & Fine Teas, Feather River College Culinary Arts program, Moon's Restaurant (under new management), Morning Thunder Cafe, Pangaea Caf & Pub, Quincy Natural Foods, Southern Accents, Greenhorn Guest Ranch and Sweet Lor- raine's; and from Indian Val- ley to the Almanor Basin: Bel- la Luna Catering, Cakes Un- leashed, Evergreen Market, Gamboni's Peninsula Grill, Genesee Bistro.

Quincy Natural Foods now sells $35 general admission tickets. "The Taste" also hosts sam- plings from numerous winer- ies and microbrew beers from around the Northstate and beyond.
