Casa Cordoba: Now Open for Dinner
I know many of you have been eagerly waiting for Casa Cordoba to be open for dinner. Well, your wait is over. Casa Cordoba is officially open for dinner! Now you can come into their beautiful courtyard in the evening, enjoy a glass of sangria, eat tapas to your heart’s content, listen to the Spanish flamenco music as you sit under the beautiful white lights strung in the trees and wonder if you have been transported to Spain! It is truly a magical place to spend an evening. To try a sampling of the food they have to offer, please join us for a ribbon cutting tomorrow at 11:30 a.m. at the restaurant. It is always nice to have a new business open in town and coming out to support them at their ribbon cutting is a great way to show your community spirit. See you tomorrow!
This Saturday is our first Artwalk of the season. The weather is beautiful now and it is a perfect time to come out and stroll along the streets of Montrose. This year we will again have various artists representing many genres in the art world: water colors, oils, acrylics, etchings, photographers, collagists and more. They will all be displaying their work and some will work as you watch. There will be music playing for you to enjoy as you walk around and, as always, there are many fine restaurants and “sweet treats” for you to enjoy in Montrose. Take some time as well to stop into the many fine retail stores that we have and say hello to the new shops that have just come into town.
It’s not too late to play in our golf classic tournament. Join us on May 23 from noon to 4 p.m. at Verdugo Hills Golf Course for food, golf and fun.
