Hey there Ramona!  Each week as I prep the update for the weekend I get a little more excited.  Excited it’s almost summer, excited about the cruise night, and just excited in general to be a part of such a great community! School is out for the summer, the weather is beautiful, and it is going to be a great night for a cruise! With some of our local farm stands starting to open for the season, wine tasting, farmers market and concerts in the park starting up again Ramona is going to be hoppin’ from here on out until the fall!  Since we like to start our weekends in Ramona on Thursday that is where I’ll start, with all of the yummy details!!!

Stop by the tasting room for some of their famous Sangria.  $5 for a glass tonight!  Then you can grab a BBQ Chicken sandwich with some coleslaw on the side for a $5 donation. All proceeds from the food sales will go to the Ramona Senior Center! You can also still purchase a ladies blingy tank top or tee in the tasting room for $20.


The Main Course

Stop by The Main Course tonight for a good meal with a side of classic cars!  The Main Course will be serving some special BBQ for tonight’s cruise.  Why not have a great dinner and sit outside and enjoy the show?!!

Ramona Family Naturals

Tonight Ramona Family Naturals will be serving another tasty flatbread.  Tonight’s treat, Strawberry Balsamic Chicken flatbread pizza!   I mean let’s be honest, doesn’t that just sound divine.




Packards will be serving up breaded chicken breasts with mushroom gravy, green beans and white rice.   It may be a little cooler tonight so grab a warm drink while you’re there!


Ramona Skatepark

Regardless of where you end up tonight please make a special trip over to Packards Coffee Shop where Ramona Skatepark will be selling popcorn.  Each bag sold is a donation that goes towards getting Ramona’s skatepark built for our kids! This skatepark won’t happen without the communities support so please stop by and give a little something to this worthy cause!  Remember it’s for the kids!


Help support one of our young Ramonian’s get to D.C.

Kaitlyn Valencia will be back tonight to try to earn money for her 8th grade trip to Washington D.C.  She and her mom will be set up in front of the Affordable Treasures/La Cocina Parking lot.  Please stop by and support this young lady by buying one of their homemade treats!!  If you could also do me a favor and give her a little extra donation I think that would be just awesome!  Let’s help make this trip happen for her!
