Blooming Trees Are A Good Sign

Fruit trees are blooming. Daylight Savings Time and Spring are just around the corner. Blossoms remind me I survived another winter and warm weather is coming.

I'm not expecting music in the park or many festivals this year. I do expect to hear plenty of live music though. Merchants and restaurants are going to feed the pent-up public demand to get out and hear some live music. We'll get a chance to see some great bands in small venues, dust off your dancing shoes.

Do you have a local band you'd like to hear? Drop me a note and I'll spread the word.





This Poke Bowl Sounds Delish

Last week I was looking for a Poke Bowl recommendation. SPOTLIGHT reader Balicia suggested FRESH BOX, in Concord. After checking out the website I must concur. The store is located on the south end of Park 'n Shop, in Concord. It looks like a salad bar with sushi. Check out the website. Mix and match your choices and make the perfect POKE BOWL. I did and now I know what to order on my next visit. This is a must-eat for me. Thanks, Balicia.
