Asia Restaurant is back – one night only

Surprise your Valentine

Pamper your sweetheart, friends, shut-ins and co-workers with a home-made Valentine lunch delivered to their door.

The folks at Nevada City United Methodist Church are making the lunches as a fundraiser for their mission programs.

All lunches are $15, including delivery, and orders must be received by 5 p.m. Wednesday, Feb. 10.

Their menu is yummy: Roast turkey sandwich with apple and provolone, vegetarian gazpacho sandwich with mozzarella, and New Orleans muffuletta with provolone on sourdough; each selection includes pasta salad, a chocolate trifle and a Valentine poem.

They don’t take telephone orders, but you can see the menu in more detail and order at; call (530) 277-7928 with questions.

Lovin’ ‘Baja Princess’

Remember “The Love Boat” – that TV show from 1977-86.

People have been LOL at Off Broadstreet Theater’s spoof of cruise culture in “Baja Princess” – so much that John Driscoll has extended the musical comedy’s run through Feb. 13.

It plays at 8:15 p.m. Fridays and Saturdays at Off Broadstreet Theatre, 305 Commercial St., downtown Nevada City. Admission is $23 on Friday and $25 on Saturday. For reservations or information, call (530) 265-8686 or visit

If you haven’t yet seen the comic talent of Driscoll’s troupe, you really owe it to yourself to check this out. They are top-notch.
