SUSANVILLE RANCH RODEO SATURDAY

The event is held at the north arena. For more information, call Carey or Pat Cannon at 254-6997.
Roxanna and Bryan Haynes, owners of the newly opened Bottle & Brush Art Bar on Main Street in Susanville, tell us you don’t have to attend the Paint & Sip classes to enjoy a refreshing craft beer or premium glass of wine. They have a relaxing atmosphere for you to enjoy conversation with your friends and even encourage you to bring your own snack trays or lunch on your visit. On Wine Wednesdays, you’ll be able to get special discounts on a single glass or bottle purchase. For more details, see their ad in this week’s paper.
LIVE ENTERTAINMENT AT THE CASINO
There is a lot of great entertainment happening at the fair this week, including the headliner show featuring the Casey Donahew Band, sponsored by Diamond Mountain Casino. Plus, the casino is hosting Husky Burnette on Thursday, July 20 in the Diamond Willow Room. This sought-after musician from Tennessee will be playing starting at 9 p.m. Presale tickets are available at the casino gift shop and the night of the show at the door. Be sure to stop by their fair booth and dunk tank and help them raise funds that support many worthwhile local organizations.
