Are you interested in learning about different healing modalities such as Reiki, reflexology, Brennan Healing Science or hypnotherapy? Would you like to have a better understanding of the use of flower essences or probiotics? Have you wondered what gluten-free foods taste like?

To Your Health is presented at 88 Cups Coffee and Teas on Saturday, 1-6 p.m. Feb. 5. A variety of practitioners will be available to educate and answer your questions. Chair massages will be offered to melt away the stresses of the week. There will also be a relaxing sound massage for your body, mind and spirit. Gluten-free foods will be available to sample and purchase. You might even win one of the door prizes.

If you enjoy listening to music, there are several options to choose from right here in Carson Valley. Acoustic Solution is playing at 88 Cups Coffee and Teas tonight from 7:15-9:30 p.m. They describe their music as eclectic folk and electrified acoustic which gives you an idea of the variety they provide. John, Wendy and Seth Andrews will entertain you with their own blend of folk and rock along with several songs they have written.    

Perhaps you’d rather hear some traditional Irish music. On Friday, February 4 from 7-10 p.m., Ciana will be playing at 88 Cups Coffee and Teas. The Carson Valley trio of Tina Carlsen, Joe and Kathy Bly bring the music and songs of Ireland to their friends and neighbors here in Northern Nevada. Join them for an evening of reminiscing or singing along to old favorites. There might also be a few new songs to enjoy.

Larry Nair and Beth Oliveto are also known as Ten Dollar Pony. As co-writers, they bring parts of themselves to their songs and touch the hearts of those listening. You might have seen them play with the rock band Playa Papaya in the Lake Tahoe area. As one commentator says, Larry is “so into the guitar that he builds his own.” Their sense of humor keeps the mood light as they poke fun at themselves and guitar players. You can see them at 88 Cups Coffee and Teas on Saturday February 19 from 7-10 p.m. 

Now serving beer and wine as well as a variety of sandwiches, salads and entrees, 88 Cups Coffee and Teas is located at 1663 Lucerne St. in the Minden Village. Why not stop in and try some of their new menu items? Be sure to mark your calendar for the upcoming events. You don’t have to go far to find good entertainment.

 Have a ramblin’ good week.
