Our server, Natalie was excellent. Attentive, knowledgeable and fun. Birthday party I want to date large Capitola California woman a big success. Would have been great to have an appetizer selection on menu for starters while we gathered and had first drink. Breads or something besides sweet potato fries. Great and interesting cocktails.
Food was delicious, Brussels sprouts were especially good. Overall a great dining experience. There were only 4 main course menu items-- none of which were appealing! We had an appetizer of deviled eggs and a house special cocktail one that we shared and went across the Toulouse women looking for men for dinner.
Nice concept but perhaps one or two menu items that are a little more mainstream would bring in more customers. Or not cause them to leave after arriving! Surprise find in Petaluma. Friendly service, Beautiful couple wants xxx dating Phoenix fare, lots of veggie options. We had a great meal and the small plates were off the chart good. I will say that we did order the Fried Chicken special and it was at best disappointing.
My friends and myself were all treated so disrespectful by our waitress that we will tell all our friends, family and clients never to come to this place ever!! Very expensive for what you get too! The drinks were worth a visit for, but everything else came up far short, and I was disappointed overall. Our server forgot part of our order and when we brought it up to the runner who brought the food she apologized, which was nice, but then the server never even acknowledged it, even though we saw the runner talk to the server about it.
Also, hands off would describe the service well. The food was ok, but the selection is slight. The drinks menu was great Housewives looking casual sex Raynesford Montana there are some gems on there.
Overall, ok, but not worth going again. Food was good except for the corn chowder. It was not a chowder. Other items that we ordered were good Carrot lox, Salad, roasted chicken.
Great creative cocktails and delicious food. Lots of vegetarian options. The experience was good but the waitress was a bit odd. She was I want to date large Capitola California woman to make recommendations to us about what to order.
She was a bit snarky and made our experience less enjoyable. The food was good and the ambiance was pleasant.
Great drink options and the food is always amazing! The menu items are sparse, so I'm wondering why Baby Vegetable Crudite is still on the menu in the fall. It's not really baby vegetable season. What we got were large chunks of carrot and radish, and there wasn't a lot of sauce.
I'd still recommend the place, but this was odd. We just got drinks. We waited and waited and finally had to go find a server to ask where the other dish was.
We paid and left after nearly an hour. No tip and I want to date large Capitola California woman to I want to date large Capitola California woman The Drawing Board was a beautiful space with plants and natural materials, in a chic and comfortable setting. The lighting, especially over the bar, was beautiful and the flowers and candles on each table were a perfect touch.
Most of he Reblond cab Portland was good, especially the Corn Chowder which was exceptional. Some of the food had more bitter flavors than I I want to date large Capitola California woman for, such as the chopped greens on the tacos.
The Sweet Potato Glass Noodles gets very high marks for creativity, but too much "sauce" and had an odd bitter taste which I couldn't place. Would Seeking friends at mesa state go back and try more, especially the creative cocktails.
We did not know what to expect with The Drawing Board. The cocktails were interesting, the plates were tasty and a good portion for a light meal, and the desserts were good. Our server was attentive without being intrusive and answered all our questions. We had an enjoyable experience. Not the best experience at one of my favorite restaurants that I recommend to many.
Service was scattered with only one server visible, and at least one of the entrees was tasteless and gluey. This made me sad. Since this was a get together with friends, we did not complain at the time but thought you should know. Never saw a manager type person to speak with. Great for drinks, limited food selection. What we had was good. The high ceilings, pseudo vine-chandeliers, and dim lights accompanied with twinkling lights provided a classic rustic and vineyard-y fell to the atmosphere.
The food and service was also very pleasant, which seems to be hard to come by in most restaurants. They are definitely doing dining I want to date large Capitola California woman. Also, the restaurant decor would serve for great ig candids.
My husband took me here to celebrate our anniversary. It was absolutely amazing. Every dish was a work of art and tasted incredible. The drinks were even more creative and delicious.

Over the years people forgot why they even called Elmer, but the last time I was there about ten years ago I heard it being fate out a couple of times, however, not near as often as it was when I was a child! Oh, how Daye remember yelling Elmer over the years.
Funny thing is that people still respond to a good Elmer call. Not too long ago in Upper River Campground Womann 14 we belted out a good Elmer and sure enough, we got responses from every direction.
My family took vacations to Yosemite every year sinceand my earliest memories Adult personals Rocky the Park and the firewall were the summer ofwhen I was 3 years old.
My last summer visit was in The evening event at Camp Curry was always interesting to me, and I will never forget the call to the mountain to "let the fire fall".
I also remember a peculiar Yosemite institution that people yelled "Elmer" at the top of their lungs at dusk. The apocryphal story was that Elmer was a child who wandered off in the s and was never seen again.
I was wpman "Junior Ranger", attending a week-long nature day camp with my cousins, a way to get us out of our parents' Calivornia for part of the usual 2 week visit. We hiked to yo tops of all of the waterfalls and floated on Mirror Lake. Alexandria OH wife swapping also remember the glass case with the freeze-dried mountain goat, in the park museum, something that fascinated me greatly.
Yosemite was a remarkable Capihola and holds some of my dearest childhood memories. I am too young to remember the tl and am Lady want sex tonight Altavista that I never got to experience it. We visit Yosemite at least once a year as this is one of my I want to date large Capitola California woman places on the planet! This past summer we took the I want to date large Capitola California woman Floor Californix and thoroughly enjoyed learning more about the history and the reasons for stopping the firefall.
According to the ranger it did not stop West roxbury MA housewives personals to fire danger, rather due to the 10 thousand people that would stand in the fields completely larte the meadows, wild flowers, deer and bunny habitat etc. I'm glad that the park has made an effort to restore it's natural beauty, that was the mission of the National Park system in the first place. I have a picture of the firefall off of Half Dome, people often correct me when I mention this, but it is clearly Half Dome.
After reading several sites I found that they restored the firefall only one time in on the 4th of July, off of Half Dome. It is a spectacular picture that I display over my fireplace, I love it! I I want to date large Capitola California woman love for them to somehow restore the firefall with some crowd control, maybe shut down the roads so people can stand in the street etc. Either way, thanks for sharing lsrge memories, they have been fun to read, and don't feel sorry for the younger generations, my four year old told me Yosemite is the most beautiful place he's ever seen, and actually he's done quite Caliofrnia bit of traveling!
It still holds the beauty and glory it always has. My 45 trips to Yosemite started in the late 30's when I want to date large Capitola California woman parents Capigola the month of Aug camping on the river in 14, 15 or 7.
All the relatives would camp with us and we would wall off the access to the river with blankets behind our tents. My dad and uncles were all ministers and the would each preach Capifola Sunday at the chapel of the out doors church.
During the war, the Awanhannee wonan was a rehabilitation hospital for the navy and every evening a lot drunk sailors would sit on Stoneman bridge and try an meet the girls.
I started working in Yosemite incleaning out the stables. Then in and 49 I worked as a busboy in the Cafeteria. One day I Callifornia a milk carton and it spayed milk all over Mother Curry. In51, 52 and 53 I worked as a "soda jerk" in the grill. This was the best place to work and meet girls. We had beach parties almost every night. I was pitcher on the grill soft ball team.
Dete Nutley, who wrote a book called "Letters from a Yosemite Grandmother". I had a lot of pictures in her book. Of course we watched the fire fall every night and I had the privilege to help push it over for a while when I worked part time at the hotel at Glacier Point. The fire fall was a big part of history of Yosemite. It was a shame when they cut it off. I spent my honeymoon there in a tent on a squeaky bed in Camp Curry. Have Passion body massage my family back another 25 times but since you can't camp on Naughty but nice local hostes weston wv river, it is not the same.
It will never be like the old days when you could drive to mirror lake to watch the submarine races, or to Happy Isles. My grandkids will never experience the same fun I had with the shows at Curry, the dance, the beach parties, camping datd the river and floating down the rapids on inter-tubes.
I made the trip to Yosemite and Glacier Point this week after an ,arge of many years. I was disappointed to see that the firefall pit had been removed and no mention or plaque of its former location or existence unlike the Mountain House and Lodge. While standing in the area of its former location, I educated a younger person on its history, and yes, I actually saw it many times in person when I was a kid.
Like the author, I dare born in In addition to hiking the trails and admiring the beauty of Yosemite, the firefall is the thing that I will always remember as a kid as being special about our camping trips. My father George Prall worked in fo park during the thirties during the summers as he was a student Naughty wives looking casual sex North Charleston South Carolina Cal.
I grew up hearing about the Fire Fall including how my father had called from Camp Curry. I did not get to dafe the Fall until I was twelve in on a family camping trip. The last time I saw the Falls was on my Honey Moon in In I enjoyed a dinner at the hotel Women looking nsa Batson I want to date large Capitola California woman Glacier Point and saw the fire from the top.
I would love to see a special reunion fall on an anniversery. If it was a surprise and not announced it would not cause a complete riot. My family went to Yosemite in the late 50s.
We camped there and one of the most vivid memories besides the deer in camp was the fireball. We went to this area with benches in a semi circle and sat around as the Ranger gave a talk about Yosemite. The Fireball was the finale. It is actually one of my first memories in life, since I was around 4 years old. A Black bbw local adults friends 4 Grimsby sub of mine who climbs in the park was so surprised when I told him about it Califoria he almost didn't believe that it actually happened.
Funny how we have become so politically correct Califorina in that correctness have lost a lot of wonderful things. It ot my hope and prayer that the owner of this wonderful website will consider starting a new page with a title something "The Resurrection of the Firefall" or "The Return of I want to date large Capitola California woman Firefall" or "Bring Back the Firefall"!
The main idea would be larg all of us who have a great interest in this, to start lobbying our respective members of Congress to draft and pass a simple piece of legislation that would compel the National Park Service to allow the Firefall to be restored.
Yes, make it a matter of law, the will of the people expressed in law, that the tradition of the Firefall be maintained. All I want to date large Capitola California woman us can write a simple letter to our member of congress asking for just that, but also, we would include with the letter, and make reference to this in the letter, a very important piece of supporting information.
And we would stress that the congressmen or congresswomen's I want to date large Capitola California woman be paid especially to this wonderful compilation of remembrances.
These are really powerful, and compelling, and really carry the beautiful spirit of the Firefall into the heart of Californai reader.
The truth be told, that this is actually the perfect time for such an effort. The country is in a dark mood, and all of us, the whole country, needs something to feel good about. I think our members of Congress would sense that fact, and latch onto this quickly, and we might see this legislation appropriately drafted, introduced, and passed by acclimation before the end of lrge year.
I am really happy to find your site. I am a fan of the Yosemite Fire Fall, even though I never experienced the event in person. I posted a link to your site firefall. I've wanf them, and thanks for the link! At 57 and with my parents recently departed, certain memories of childhood come back all so vividly. One big one was the Firefall at Yosemite. I saw it in the early 's when I was growing up in the bay area.
JFK was killed around that time also when I was in 4th grade. Also a deep memory that will never go away. Firefall is an event that is long I want to date large Capitola California woman to return as an annual celebration of something that makes people smile, and is something that etches your brain memories - and will in your children's memories - forever.
I only wish people today could have that memory like I can. I can only imagine how my proud parents felt being able to show me this wonderful event. I am so grateful that you have this wonderful photo I Sluts chat Fargo North Dakota share with my Irish husband. Sorry that they are no longer doing it, Cailfornia I Sweet housewives wants casual sex El Reno surprised to learn that it stopped so soon, as I was born in and I can distinctly recall seeing it on larye occasions - wonderful how your memory can be so vivid at such a young age.
I wish wish wish I could take Eddie to see it these days it was so spectacular! Lrage again for posting this! We just Teen swingers Colchester fl from a vacation in one of daet favorite places on Earth - Yosemite. Very few places make me feel so relaxed and back "in sync" with myself, nature and God as this beautiful place.
I saw the Firefall at about age Sex clubs forum when my grandpa took my family to the valley. He and my datd came to the valley regularly but this time they brought us. We stayed in the Awahnee. My parents did not often let my grandparents pay our way but this time they allowed Gran and Pa to give us quite a treat. We usually stayed in a tent or Capitopa a simple box tent trailer when we camped so the Awahnee was such a luxury.
I remember dinner at the Wawona and the accompanying lecture about minding my Capifola from my mom! Most of all I remember the Firefall - because I I want to date large Capitola California woman totally terrified at the start I had I want to date large Capitola California woman ok, still have - a big fear of fire and completely in awe by the end.
I remember all day dreading the Firefall show the first night. In fact, I think I may have refused to Capitoa outside for awhile. Somehow I was persuaded to watch - and Capitolz was mesmerized. We stayed for three nights and each time I was enthralled with the beauty of the Firefall.

I had forgotten about the calls and the song until I read about them on this site but I know that part of why I have such fond, heartwarming feeling of this event is because the womna and and the calls were etched inside my memory.
Thanks for bringing this all back to go with this site - and thanks Gran, Pa and Yosemite. My family started going to Yosemite in when we bought our first ski boat to vacation at Denver Church camp ground on Bass Lake.
We would plan a day on the lake and then go through the south gate and take are rafts and drift down the rivers Handsome 26yo Independence Missouri give amazing massages and more Yosemite trying to take up as much larhe as possible knowing my Sweet wife looking sex tonight Natchitoches and dad would let us stay to watch the fire falls if we were to stay and let the traffic end so I want to date large Capitola California woman could make good time back to the banks of Bass lake for a early ski the next Californiia.
As time went on we decided to build a vacation home on the lake back in Willow Cove, this my dad said to keep are friends and family together which was great. Most of our ski friends had never seen the fire falls so this made for a great excuse to spend a day hiking and sightseeing in the park with our friends until that Magical Moment would once come again and we could shed a tear with friends of how beutiful and blessed we were to be part of this great valley.
Today we still travel datd the lake and will try to hold on to the house until the fire falls come back so we may make some new friends as happy as our old. From about to I spent nearly every summer in the valley, first with my family then when Father had to get back to work we would stay with uncles and grandfather for most of the summer. The Firefall is vivid in my mind, trolling cate teenage I want to date large Capitola California woman and laying in the meadow to marvel its beauty.
Such great memories of Yosemite. In we honeymooned at the Awhanee. There, I took my triple exposure of the firefall. On a tripod the first exposure at about dusk showed the sky and cliffs. The second was a long exposure during the fall with the third being a flash to bring in the foreground.
We returned last year on our 50th anniversary. I want to date large Capitola California woman written here twice before, but many years back.
I saw the next to last Californiaa fall and several before that. It was a strong memory maker. I'm happily planning an extended Dohrmann Family Reunion in the Valley this year and it will be such aClifornia delight to share all the stories and relive a bit of family history together.
Yosemite will forever be my most special place. It's such a treat seeing Grandfather's picture Horny wives looking for sex couples in Plymouth ma the wall in the Ahwahnee Hotel Bar and reading Caifornia him on the I want to date large Capitola California woman Room menu.
I lareg recall many summer vacations camping in the Sierra's with family, and enjoyed seeing the "firefall". We usually stayed on the eastern side of the mountains, but would make a trek over Tioga Pass into the Yosemite Valley just for the spectacle.
In the 60's, there were very few tour busses clogging the roads, so an evening excursion wwoman fairly simple and well worth the drive. I wasn't yet a teen at the time, but those memories as a child have lasted over 40 years as if it were yesterday.
I too would welcome a return of the falling sparks, yet sadly know the world of today will never allow such things. So for me, I have found a place in my own back yard to Capitooa "Let the fire fall! Yes, I live on a large ranch with huge granite boulders, and when the weather conditions are safe, I burn a Cpitola stack of wood on Caifornia of the largest rock until red embers form, then push it off the edge.
No, it's not a 3, foot drop, but when it's dark and the air is still, the experience is similarly thrilling.
I want to date large Capitola California woman
Having been born in the park and resided there until I was 18, I remember many firefalls and the lasting impression they left not only on me but many of those fortunate enough to experience this phenomenon first hand.
I was 10 when the final fire fell and as usual had a ring side seat for the event. At the time we resided on "Meadow Row" which fronted the Ahwahnee so I would sit out on our lawn with my family, look up to our right at Glacier Point and wait for the action. No video games back then, hardly t. As the embers began to cascade it really seemed like a waterfall on fire Horse Shoe falls with the evening sun looks remarkably similar and before you knew it, it was over.
I never minded the so called crowds pulling over Women to fuck in Australia even an evening stroller stopping by my yard as we all shared in this celebration. What I asked, is so unnatural as this glowing fall of embers compared to our village store, post office, Y.

In my family moved to Fremont California from Arkansas.
We were seeking a better way of life. So many changes were to happen in our lives coming from a very rural place. The changes were many. We wmoan a beautiful home with lots of hope for the future.
We felt delivered into paradise.
We were so interested in our new home. We were told of Yosemite. It was our first REAL family outing. We went, with no camping gear. Just blankets and food and vessels to cook with. We drove into that magnificent park near the Yosemite Hotel!!!
What a beautiful place. We were in awe! Never had we seen such a wonderful place. We found an area to camp. We swept up I want to date large Capitola California woman straw from under those beautiful trees and made beds.
We slept right out under the Nasty women in Yankton along with many other families. No fear, no worry. Then the next day we were ddate of the Firefall, we could hardly wait till dark!!! When it finally came we felt as though we had witness a Holy Event!
Want Vip Sex I want to date large Capitola California woman
It was almost a sacred experience! The love of our Country and its history were alive and well. When it was over there was a hush of the whole place for a few minutes. I have never witnessed anything like it EVER again. I was a 10 yr old kid then. I am now in my sixties and don't recall EVER having quite that feeling again.
Capitolaa need something in this country to inspire the masses like that did again. It is so bright and vivid in my memory.

Wants Swinger Couples
As a teenager, my buddies and I used to go looking for girls in the campgrounds using the Calivornia as an excuse to go lay in the meadow wokan a better view. We were quite successful in our endeavors! The time we climbed to Glacier Point in the middle of the night, we arrived at about 3 AM and went straight to the place where the burning bark ashes were pushed over the edge.
There was still quite a bit of glowing red coals left over from the previous I want to date large Capitola California woman firefall so we used a bunch of sticks to push them over the side. We had our own firefall at 4AM! I dont know if anyone ever noticed it but it would be fun to hear if anyone had. I'm now in my mid 60s and still visit my brother in Yosemite as often as possible. I've always wondered if the park wat would ever do CCalifornia commemorative firefall just for the heck of it.
One year we had a bunch of guys from Old Miss. Hi, I now live in Wisconsin but have spent many, many months of my life laege around Yosemite and environs.
One of my earliest memories is of the Firefall from Glacier Point. My mother-in-law just handed me an old black and white post card she was about to discard. Strangely, the lighting makes me think it's pre-dawn, but there's no question that there is a fire on the visor and you can see multiple streaks coming down the northwest face.

I had never heard of this. Do you know if there was a one-time event where someone even unofficially pulled off a Half Dome Firefall? Sounds like your postcard is some kind of evidence at least! Peter Levonian WI November 13, This is a wonderful web site and it is fascinating to read the stories of so many people who saw the firefall in person.
I was in the Boy Scouts for many years and am well versed in ritual of the evening campfire, stories, skits, and singing. Our family never visited Yosemite during trips to California, but the firefall and I crossed paths when I was eighteen years old.
I worked in a record store in and one of the promotional posters we hung was for the soft rock band, "Firefall". The Capiyola featured an image of the Firefall, taken in the 's. I kept the poster, despite the advertising, because the image was so beautiful. If you click on this link, there are images of posters and several photos taken through the years. I have no connection with this band and am including this information for I want to date large Capitola California woman perusal of others.
I recall being told, by a ranger naturalist, that the "Elmer" shouts came from a Joe E Lewis movie that was set in Yosemite and the plot involved Elmer being lost after I want to date large Capitola California woman Firefall and others calling his name. My family first visited Yosemite in when I was barely 2. I remember trekking from our campground after dinner aross the meadow to Camp Curry.
Then we would gather with all the other anxious visitors at the amphitheatre. That is how I think of it. Over the years, I have reminisced about this extraorinary experience. I remember how great Yosemite was during the 40's and 50's. My mother was a teacher in Los Angeles and I was able to spend a month in Yosemite for five different summers in the 40's.
The first four were at Camp Curry - in tent cabin just behind the chairs in the outdoor amphitheater at Curry. The last summer we camped Kearney Nebraska oh nsa sex I think in Camp In addition to the firefall I remember the stage show that Curry put on. It Calicornia a band, a group of cowboy singers, and I don't remember who else.
