Another View

Yes, yet another view of the Old Elk's Lodge from me.  This one is so much better than the one from the other day.

Coming Up 104!

On August 4, Muenzer's will have been in business 104 years. Owned by siblings Jerry Muenzer and Jan Holthouse, the establishment is formally known today as Muenzer's Keys and Teez. It offers locksmith services and sells Haybaler sweatshirts and other apparel.

The business was opened in 1910 by the siblings' grandfather, Joseph Muenzer, who purchased a second-hand store,  got rid of everything but the bicycles, and added locksmith services. Over the years, Muenzer's evolved and adapted with the community's needs and the economic times.

Muenzer's is located at 217 Fifth Street.

Happy Anniversary, Muenzer's!!!

The View from Los Viboras Road

Los Viboras Road is another country lane off Fairview Road. Near the end of Los Viboras, the road is lined on both sides with old eucalyptus trees. And, it is from there, that I took this photo earlier this year. In the distance is the mountain called Three Sisters and Santa Ana Peak.

La Catrina

There's a new restaurant in town. It's called La Catrina. I have yet to go, but I've heard some good reviews by folks who have given thumbs up on the quality of the food and customer service.

"La Catrina is the feeling, the energy, and the authentic taste of the Mexican Grill," states the owners on the restaurant's Facebook page. The restaurant is located at 449 San Benito Street, near the corner of Fifth Street.

On Display at the Car Show

I get a kick out of the things that folks display inside their automobiles at car shows. Did you happen to see this snake and these figurines at the Hollister Street Festival & Car Show last Saturday?
