Weekend in Placerville!!!!


Looking for something to do on this rather warm El Dorado County weekend....On Saturday June 27th and Sunday June 28th Colibri Ridge Winery & Vineyard will be celebrating it's 5th year anniversary. They will also be celebrating the latest release of award winning wines, 2005 Fair Play Mourvedre (Gold & Best of Class at the Amador County Fair), and the 2005 El Dorado Petite Sirah (Silver at the 2009 Amador County Fair). Enjoy live entertainment with the talented local artist Johnny Mojo, and gourmet barbequed hamburgers & cheeseburgers will be available for $5.00 each (no charge for Club Colibri wine club members). During the celebration there will be special discounts on wines. On Saturday they will be celebrating from 12:00 to 5:00 and on Sunday from 12:00 to 4:00. Come and enjoy good food, good entertainment and of course good wine.

And of course, for those of you keeping track...this is our 7th anniversary here at the Albert Shafsky House B&B in Placerville...Hard to believe, thank you to all who have stayed and made us better innkeepers over the years...we consider you friends.

Friday nights in Placerville....


It is that time of year...rafting, the El Dorado County Fair and Friday nights at Boeger Winery for sunsets, music and wine. What better way to start the weekend of festivities than with us at the Albert Shafsky House B&B and a visit to Boeger.  Join us this Friday, June 19th and enjoy the smooth sounds of Tamra Godey from 5-8pm. Of course the winery will have wine, pack a snack or get one there.

June is here! Time for a bunch of events

Aw where to begin. Somehow it got to be June, not too sure where May went. Our friend finished her dissertation and became Dr. Carolyn, the kids are out of school in El Dorado County, rafting is here and it has been warm enough to go already and we have several events coming up that might be of interest/or you may find us there.

June 13th --- Wagon Train and Placerville Founders Day. Celebrate Placerville's 155th birthday on Historic Main Street all afternoon with us. Placerville was founded 155 years ago, just a few miles from where gold was first discovered in California. To celebrate, Historic Main Street in Placerville closes to welcome the Highway 50 Wagon Train and host the Founders Day Street Faire with living history exhibits and re-enactments, gem-panning, fire engine displays, pony rides, costume contests, music, a decorated banners display and more from 1PM to 5PM. Free to the public.

June 18th-21 - The El Dorado County Fair comes back to town! This year's theme is "Hooves to Horsepower" and promises as much fun as always.

June 27th
Bell Tower Brewfest, 6PM to 9PM
This popular Placerville event will be hosted again by downtown merchants and will include a street closure for added enjoyment and safety for all patrons. Entertainment will feature the Bill Magee Blues Band, the Mark St. Mary Zydeco Band, and Trac 7 in different locations on Main Street.

Tickets are limited and expected to sellout before that evening, so plan on getting them early. They will go on sale in late May for $30 at River City Bank, Tony Matthews The Wine Smith and Placerville Brewing in Placerville. Or, tickets can be purchased onl-ine with a credit card.
