Oregon Cabaret Theatre "Double Trouble"

[caption id="attachment_3651" align="alignright" width="250"]Oregon Cabaret Theatre Oregon Cabaret Theatre[/caption] Set in Hollywood in the early 1940s, the show features Jimmy & Bobby Martin, a pair of song-writing brothers summoned to a major movie studio and given the golden opportunity to write a song for the movies…on the double. Their efforts are interrupted by wacky characters including the boorish studio boss, an ancient sound engineer, an effete director, a sleazy agent and a buxom, scheming screen siren - all played by the same two singing, dancing, piano-playing actors in a rambunctious musical tour-de-farce written by Bob and Jim Walton. The Oregon Cabaret Theatre is a favorite musical venue for both visitors and locals alike. If you're in the mood for a tuneful campy romp, go to the Cabaret for dining and entertainment.  Open on Monday nights. February 7 – March 30 Previews February 5 & 6 Performances Thursday – Sunday @ 8:00 Sunday Brunch matinees @ 1:00 For more information visit their website

Southern Oregon Lavender Trail Festival

[caption id="attachment_3447" align="alignright" width="265"]Lavender Fields Forever Farm in the Applegate Valley Lavender Fields Forever Farm in the Applegate Valley[/caption] Instead of tending the inn's garden today, my friend Peggy enticed me out to play tourist in the and check out the lavender farms in the Applegate Valley area. Peggy has been anxious to pick lavender and replenish her dried flower arrangements.  I have been wanting to familiarize myself with the farms and view the gardens. The Southern Oregon Lavender Trail Festival allowed us to indulge in our desires. Lavender farming is a relatively new thing in the area.  Four farms are up and running; and there are 2 additional farms starting up in 2014. The two farms that most favorably impressed us were: Lavender Fields Forever and Applegate Valley Lavender Farm.  Thankfully they are the ones closest to Jacksonville!  I like the idea of giving people something else to do while wine tasting -- inserting a lavender farm or two between the tasting stops.
