SANTA’S GONE, THE SALE IS ON! OPEN AFTER CHRISTMAS!
Every Bloomin’ Thing is open Thursday, Dec. 26 to Monday, Dec. 30 with some fantastic sale prices. Owner Melissa McCoy said last year went so well that she is doing it again.

JOIN T&A LOUNGE FOR NEW YEARS
Join the party at T & A Lounge to Celebrate New Year’s Eve! Dance to the music with DJ Outlaw from 9 p.m. to 1 a.m., enjoy a real bar, with real people and real drinks. There will be dancing, party favors and a festive atmosphere. You can even have dinner next door at Micks Big Bite Café. Free rides are available through Lassen Rural Bus.
FREE RIDES HOME THIS NEW YEAR’S EVE
Worried about who is driving for your New Year’s party? Lassen Rural Bus is offering free rides. David Knaut, transportation planner for the Lassen Transit Service Agency, tells us a modified city route from 8 to 11 p.m. on New Year’s Eve, will drive the blue route in a one hour circle. At 11 p.m. they’ll start operating two buses: One will mainly run between the three locations (Diamond Casino, Pioneer Saloon and T&A) so if people want, they can go to different locations, and the other bus will drive people directly home from these locations (within the city limits). So, overall, people should be able to get to and from these three nightspots via bus. For more information on the free rides home, see this week’s ad.
GET YOUR PARTY HATS READY
Diamond Mountain Casino and Hotel is hosting a New Year’s Eve Celebration. They have a prime rib and crab leg dinner planned with two seatings at 5:30 p.m. and 7:15 p.m. Live music, featuring local group Timeless, starts at 9 p.m. Get your tickets at the gift shop at Diamond Mountain Casino and Hotel at 900 Skyline Drive in Susanville.

SHOP LOCALLY THIS YEAR
With Christmas just around the corner, it’s time for us to once again challenge each of our newspaper readers to spend at least $100 shopping at home this holiday season. If we all did that, it will pump more than $1 million into our local economy — based on a conservative average of just two readers for every newspaper.
That $100 — or whatever extra comfortably fits the family budget — doesn’t necessarily need to be just items from your favorite stores. It could be gift certificates from one of the local restaurants, beauty salons, massage therapists, auto detailers, gyms, golf courses or other service providers throughout the county.
And it doesn’t have to be just presents. You could always spend the money on something more personal. Whether it is getting your nails done for a special party, a dinner out or filling your gas tank for a trip to visit family, there are literally hundreds of ways to spend $100 in Lassen County this holiday season. We challenge you to find the ways that best fit your needs and lifestyle.
Remember, shopping locally and spending $100 could be the best Christmas present for not only those on your list, but for everyone in Lassen County as well. This shopping season, think local first.
