Every season is also a new dining adventure at GRÉGOIRE. The entire menu (with the exception of two side dishes) changes in rhythm with nature. For Jacquet, it’s an on-going quest to find the finest, precise ingredients for his evolving repertoire of original dishes. Making it possible are the long-term relationships he has cultivated with a dozen or so equally-passionate purveyors – all small or family-owned businesses – who share his zest for perfection and continually search the horizon for what’s new in natural and organic products on his behalf.
Shawl-Anderson Dance Center provides Bay Area dance students of all ages and levels with high caliber training in both contemporary and traditional movement forms in a welcoming, non-competitive environment.
Enjoy 3 nights in Lake Tahoe in style. This 2,000+ square foot, 4-bedroom, 3.5 bath condo is located at the entrance of Squaw Valley (Tavern Inn complex). In the winter, relax by the wood-burning fireplace or in the summer on one of the three decks. Take the bicycle path to Tahoe City or walk down to the beach at the lake–it’s right at the front of the property! Enjoy all Tahoe has to offer, any time of year! This condo is large enough for one family to really spread out, or share with another family for a fun-filled vacation.
