Pizza Factory Delivers!


Posted by Shawn & Annette in Opinion, Restaurants, Twain Harte News on January 28, 2011

I can’t tell you just how many times I’ve said, “Oh, how I wish the Twain Harte Pizza Factory delivered.” My wish has been granted — Super Bowl Sunday (Hey, one day is better than nothing.) the Twain Harte Pizza Factory will deliver fresh, hot pizza to your door, so you won’t miss a play.

We don’t have network or cable television at our house, so I can tell you this — we won’t be watching the Super Bowl but I won’t miss this opportunity to have pizza delivered straight to my door.

You could always do Bob a favor and call your order in ahead of time. Why wait until the last minute?  Just remember to tip your driver — maybe Bob will realize we need delivery service in Twain Harte.

Today, has been such an exciting day!

I didn’t tell you what I witnessed last night. Well, since our move, I’ve been smoking my cigarettes outside — thank goodness for the unseasonally warm weather. Last night, I went out to the back deck for my break. It’s so peaceful and serene out there, (if you don’t count Friday and Saturday nights when the Courtside Bar & Grill is in full-swing).

Apparently, I am not the only one that thinks so either. I kept hearing some weird noises in the yard but was having a little trouble figuring out where it was coming from. I grabbed a flashlight and startled the heck out of several deer who had decided that my backyard would make a wonderful place to nap. I’m just thankful I am generally quiet, so they weren’t disturb. We both managed to enjoy my back yard — me on the deck, them in the yard.

Twain Harte is the most wonderful place on earth. If I didn’t know better, I’d think I died and went to heaven.

P.S. One last bit of news for the day. Workers have been working on the road around the Twain Harte Shopping Center. Those Suburban swallowing potholes are now a thing of the past.

Stay safe!

Thanksgiving Update


Posted by Annie in Restaurants, Twain Harte News on November 25, 2010

Happy Thanksgiving to you all!

I have good news and bad news. The bad news is, of course, the power outage continues. The good news is, we have four or five PG&E crews working just blocks from the house, one crew is actually behind the house working.

We skipped the grilled fish dinner I had planned and opted instead for a wonderful buffet spread hosted by Diamond Jim’s restaurant in Mi-Wuk  – and we weren’t alone. The ham with raisin rum sauce was delicious. We met people who came from Groveland and another group of people who were taking advantage of the early ski season at Dodge Ridge.

On another note: I do have a little more good news. After 6 or 7 days without cell service, our cell phones finally work. They came back online sometime before 3-4:00 p.m. today.

I’ll be posting some pictures soon. You wouldn’t believe how much snow has fallen in Sugar Pine and Mi Wuk. It must have been pretty ugly up that way before the plows and the sunshine came through. All in all, it’s a beautiful day, in spite of the cold weather. It’s 37 degrees at the house right now — outside.  Inside, well, my office is a balmy 58 degrees, but this morning it was 45, I decided to skip the update until now. I’m sure you can relate.

Stay warm folks!

Valentine’s Day Starts Early!


Posted by Annie in Restaurants, Tuolumne County on February 13, 2010

We headed to Sonora this afternoon, to pick up supplies, grab a bite to eat at Carl’s Jr. – love those waffle fries – and do a little browsing around town. Traffic was moderate for that time of day. 

It was such a gorgeous day, with the sun shining brightly; the temperature almost hit 70° in Twain Harte. It felt like springtime, minus the daffodils – I can hardly wait for the daffodils. I was surprised to see how many we had popping up everywhere last year. 

The stores were all bustling with shoppers. The lines were not long, but it’s Friday and I believe we had just missed the Friday rush. Especially since the traffic grew considerably heavier the closer we were to Twain Harte. Traffic backed up briefly on the seven curves as we made our way home. 

As we drove through town, I was surprised to see that the town had filled up and hungry prospective diners snagged up every available parking spot. Couples have started early celebrating Valentine’s Day by going out on the town. 

We made our reservations early for the Sunday Brunch, at Seven Sisters Restaurant in Tuolumne (at Black Oak Casino). According to staff members, the Valentine’s Day Brunch is an extra special event. I can hardly wait. This will be our fourth visit, and I thought the other three times we dined at Seven Sisters were special already. 

I visited the Seven Sisters website and could not find a thing listed about Valentine’s Day on it anywhere, so I called. The reservation clerk informed me that it is not necessary for them to advertise because they sell out every year. I hope you have made your reservations. 

The best Valentine’s Day I can recall is the year my loving husband took me to The Firehouse Restaurant in Sacramento. I had the best Steak Diane ever that night. Tomorrow morning I will be feasting on Filet Mignon, Crème Brule and made-to-order crepes, prepared at our table. 

Where are you spending Valentine’s Day?
