Taste of the Towns winners announced

Thank you, Carson Valley. You turned out for our Taste of the Towns and made it a big success. We at DCHS thank you and the restaurant and shop owners thank you. They put a lot of effort into making sure you have a great time. And we did have a good time, particularly watching the Basque dancers at the J.T. Thank you, J.T., for all you do for our "Tasters."

We have our winners from the Taste. Congratulations go to Buona Sera Ristorante & Bar for Best Taste, the J.T. Basque Bar for Best Atmosphere and Best Overall, Ruby Rose City & Saddle Clothes for Best Shop and The Grill Next Door/Moose and Squirrel for Best Discovery. Stop by all of our participants' establishments in the next few weeks and thank them in person.

Last week we told you that August is a very full month for DCHS events. Sunday, we are inviting all "old timers" in the Valley to come out and help us identify those folks in the photographs in our archives. Please call 782-2555 to reserve a time for individual viewing.

Our next flea market will be held on Aug. 18, in the Carson Valley Museum & Cultural Center parking lot. If you are selling, be sure to reserve your space early. A 10' x 10' space is only $20 if reserved in advance. The flea market will be open from 8 a.m. until 2 p.m.

Chili's is sponsoring a "dining for dollars" fundraiser for the Historical Society on Aug. 21. Pick up a flyer at the museum or online at, and then head to Chili's where they will donate a portion of your bill to our museums. You will need one flyer for each check. Chili's hours are from 11 a.m. until 10 p.m.

If you have any questions about anything mentioned here, please call the Douglas County Historical Society at 782-2555 or visit our website at
