Murder Mystery Dinner at Preston Castle

Murder Mystery Dinner at Preston Castle

Friday & Saturday
August 1st &  2nd
6:00pm
 

Aloha, welcome to Hawaii.  It is sunset on the beach and friends of Chase Diamond have gathered at his birthday Luau.  The impromptu party quickly turns into a woeful wake when Chase is found dead, poisoned by one of his guests.  Was it friend or foe who fatally freshened his favorite cocktail?  It is up to you to find out.

Come to a Hawaiian Luau and figure out the mystery. Wear your Aloha outfits to really blend in.

Enjoy a luau style dinner in the Preston Castle Courtyard and be part of the action as events unfold around you.  Observe, ask questions, and use your super sleuth skills to figure out “who done it?”

The Suspects: Les Baggs, Chief Wiki Wiki, Holly Day, Rip Tide, Nadia Seymour, Joey Breakers, Leilani, Lavender Koi

A no host bar will have a nice selection of drinks available for purchase, including killer Mai Tais.

Presented by the Preston Castle Foundation in conjunction with the Volcano Theater Company.
 
$45 per ticket.  Limited to 100 tickets.  Available at Clark’s Corner, or online at PrestonCastle.com Call 209-256-3623 for more information and/or tickets.

Mandolin Orange at Feist Wines

Mandolin Orange at Feist Wines

Feist Wines’ tasting room is developing into a center for culture.  The storefront which once housed a gold rush saloon has become a community gathering place for big city quality music.

Emily Frantz and Andrew Marlin, comprising the duo Mandolin Orange, return to Feist Wines on Wednesday, August 20  at 7pm.

The Feists discovered these rising stars on NPR’s Folk Alley where they performed the iconic “Waltz about Whiskey”.  The duo was looking for stops on their “This Side of Jordan Tour” and on a whim Feist Wines booked them.  The result was an evening of beautiful lyrical music and a complete hush from the sold out crowd.  Fresh from playing the Newport Folk festival, Mandolin Orange is set to return.
 
Feist Wines is a small lot, artisan winery in Amador City and has been producing wine for three years and promoting music in their tasting room housed in a 19th century western saloon.  Winemaker Tony Feist plays the guitar and fiddle and performs regularly at the tasting room with the Allen Frank Doghouse Blues.  The group will open the Wednesday show.
 
The similar styles of all of the musicians made it a natural for the Feist to welcome Mandolin Orange.  Fritz and Marlin’s understanding of classic country, rock, and blues is evident in “Waltz About Whisky.” The song swings like a honky-tonk. Marlin and Frantz plead, “Won’t someone dance with me to a waltz about whisky and turn my sad songs to lullabies?” They fit right in as Amador County’s star on the map grows in importance.

Tickets are $15 in advance and $20 at the door and are available at the Feist Wines tasting room or at feistwines.com.

Garratt Wilkin & the Parrotheads

Garratt Wilkin & the Parrotheads

Helwig Summer Concert Series Presents "Garratt Wilkin & the Parrotheads".

Beaches, boats, bars and tropical drinks with those colorful little umbrellas. This is what you think of while listening to "Garratt Wilkin & the Parrotheads" performing "A celebration of Jimmy Buffett music."

Garratt and his band have been billed as the #1 Jimmy Buffett tribute band. Garratt says, "Traveling with 'The Parrotheads' is a great way to meet Jimmy Buffett fans and to make new 'Parrothead' friends. We get such a kick out of performing for fans that become just as much a part of the show as we are."

“The Golden State”, Main Street Theater Works

“The Golden State” by Laura Wilson is a reinvention of a Moliere classic "The Miser", this time brought to present-day Southern California, where things aren’t what they seem in this hilarious look at greed, lust, and several other "deadly sins."
Situated on the historic Kennedy Mine property, a performance at the picturesque amphitheatre is truly an experience for the senses. What to bring: layers of clothing for the cool summer nights, mosquito repellent, a low-lying chair or blanket, a picnic dinner and a bottle of wine.
