Juicy Hamburgers And A Movie Plus A Yarn Bowl


Can you top that for a spontaneous evening out. Diamondback Grill has some of the best hamburgers around. If you arrive after six o'clock in the evening you will have to wait for seating. It is a very busy place every day.

"The Diamondback Grill was established in 1991 in a tiny 25-seat diner in Sonora, California. The location had been a diner for over 90 years and represented a true slice of Americana with chrome and red vinyl stools with a pink Formica counter. In short order indeed, lines were forming out the door by customers waiting for juicy half-pound burgers, marinated chicken salads and goat cheese stuffed chiles. Ranchers and lawyers can be seen elbow to elbow at our counter with shirt sleeves rolled up, biting into half pound burgers of locally raised grass fed beef and melting Fiscalini Farms cheddar cheese, all at prices that make our city dwelling friends green with envy."



The Adjustment Bureau was a fast moving enjoyable movie with lots of action. It seems as though we are going to the movies almost every week which feels a little strange to me. My childhood experience did not include going to the movies because off very strict parental control. Recently, there have been a lot of movies that have our interest and we are having a good time.



Surprisingly, I came home with "a little something" from a yarn store that is across the street from the "burger place." I saw it in the window and I have been interested in having one for some time now. I am still quite frugal and when MSM said  "let's go in" I hesitated. Within five minutes I was walking out with a Yarn Bowl. I think they are nice to have so the ball of yarn doesn't roll around. And, an added bonus is that it was made by a local artisan.




In the past we had about four yarn shops nearby. However, with the recession some of them have closed and the shop in Sonora is the only shop nearby. And ~ ~ ~ it is a very nice quality shop with a very wide selection of "everything".


The name of the shop is By Hand Yarn 



I hope you have a Beautiful Day.
