Keep eye out for new restaurant, new yoga classes
By: LindaLou Haines, Special to Colfax Record
I found another new place to eat! However, you’ll have to wait about three weeks, but it will be worth the wait. The motto for the new place is: “A deli-cious place to pig out.” It’s in Alta next to the railroad and across from the firehouse on Alta Bonnynook; it’s called EMILY’S NOSH. Owners Mark and Julie Kincheloe of Dutch Flat will be serving “healthy affordable meals that you can feel good about” from Tuesday through Saturday, 6:30 a.m. to 2 p.m., plus Friday-night dinners. I’ve been there and so far, the renovations inside look really inviting. I’ll have more details next column, but in the meantime you can check out their website, www.emilysnosh.com. MICHELE CANDLER reports that she has added an additional Gentle Yoga class to her schedule. Her classes meet at Studio Z at the Sierra Vista Community Center, 55 School St. The new class meets Tuesdays, 10:15-11:15 a.m. (This is in addition to the Thursday Gentle Yoga Class at 10:15-11:15 a.m. and her Power Yoga classes.) Michele says, “This will be a great addition to those who want to expand their yoga practice days.” Contact Michele at 346-1015 or 863-0091 or her website: satyayogastudio.vpweb.com. Speaking of STUDIO Z Dance & Fitness, Kirstin Dawson, owner of Studio Z in classroom No. 3 at Sierra Vista, will be hosting the Colfax Chamber of Commerce mixer tomorrow, Friday, June 17, starting at 5:30 p.m. This was rescheduled from a date in snowy March. Mixers are open to all residents and business owners. Cost is $5 for chamber members and $7 for non-members. It is a time to mingle and network with your fellow business folks and have fun. Beverages and snacks make it a party, even though attendees may be working! This time at Studio Z, some of the practitioners who teach in the studio will be offering demonstrations, including Kirstin (Zumba & R.I.P.P.E.D.), Michele Candler (Gentle & Power Yoga), Aseela (Jenny Flanigan) (Belly Dancing). For information, contact the Chamber, 346-8888 or Kirstin, 559-5963 and zumbainthehills.com. An update on the ever-evolving days and hours of business at the wonderful new dinner restaurant DOTTIE’S CAFÉ, 38 N. Main St. goes like this: Open Tuesday through Thursday, 10 a.m. to 2 p.m. and 5 to 9 p.m.; Friday and Saturday, 10 a.m. to 2 p.m. and 5 to 10 p.m. On Sundays, brunch is served from 10 a.m. to 2 p.m., then it closes. Sunday evenings the café is available for private parties. For more information on schedule, menus and special events, contact owners Shannon Mackey and Todd Hepler at 346-2828. A new Colfax-based business, ALLIED PROPERTY SERVICES, under the ownership of Ernie Faisst, is now operating. Ernie explained that in addition to being bonded and a licensed realtor, his own business Allied Property Services works primarily with banks and other real estate agents in real estate foreclosure situations. His company gets hired to clean up the property inside and outside, handle issues involving safety, do repairs that can be small or heavy duty like flooring or stripped out appliances and plumbing. Along with the hands-on work, he provides drive-by inspections and if needed a more detailed inspection of the property in order to maintain the value of the property. In those situations, he provides photographs to substantiate his findings. If you are an owner in foreclosure or an entity in charge of the legalities, you can contact Ernie at 613-4406. He and his family live here in Colfax, but the area for his business is the whole region of Placer and El Dorado counties from Colfax down into the Sacramento Valley.
