15.Quince Says Goodbye to Jerome and Opens Up Shop in Cottonwood

april2013_Dining

We have some good news and some bad news to report. OK, first, the bad news: 15.Quince in Jerome has officially left the building. The popular eatery is no longer serving up its tasty tacos and delicious margaritas out of its old Main Street location. 15.Quince lovers, fear not. Here’s the good news: 15.Quince has relocated to a bigger and better space in Cottonwood, just a few miles down the hill from Jerome. Fans of 15.Quince can expect the same amazing food, as well as a few additions to owner Vladimir Costa’s menu.

Talk about another great reason to stop in Cottonwood!

15.Quince is located at 747 S. Main Street in Cottonwood. For more information, call 928-634-7087.

In the Area: The Surgeon’s House

The Master Suite

If you’re planning a trip to Jerome and aren’t sure where to stay, consider catching some zzzz’s at The Surgeon’s House Bed and Breakfast. The place is wonderfully sublime…. blissful, quiet and certainly not lacking in the charm department. If you’re looking for cozy, consider booking The Maid’s Suite Front — the room may be small (you’ll certainly get that warm, fuzzy feeling), but the views of the valley below are spectacular. Privacy seekers should check out The Chauffeur’s Quarters…. besides being detached from the main house, the space also has its own secluded rooftop garden, perfect for sipping wine and taking in the awe-inspiring views… I spent the night in The Master Suite last weekend and I couldn’t have been more tickled — antiques, books, a separate sitting-area… it was heavenly.

I wish I could have stayed an additional night… for maximum relaxation.

As the B&B’s owner, well, expect to be treated like royalty…. Andrea treats her guests to a tasty home cooked breakfast…. in fact, her food is so yummy, Andrea has several cookbooks…. if you do visit her, be sure to have one of her homemade scones.

Simply put, they are TO-DIE-FOR.

Arlo & Abbey

Arlo Guthrie

The following is from a press release provided by representatives from the Lines Across the Sand documentary.

Folk Legend Arlo Guthrie Lends His Talents to Upcoming Documentary

JEROME, AZ – Filmmaker ML Lincoln resurrects Edward Abbey’s spirit with her upcoming documentary Lines Across the Sand. The film is a timely and entertaining reminder that there are still heroes with the courage to take a stand and say, “this far, and no farther.”

Music legend Arlo Guthrie sings the opening theme for the film, Billboards in the Sky, written by the late Gerry Glombecki, an inductee in the Arizona Blues Hall of Fame. The film promises to be an environmental cult favorite. Guthrie is best known for his underground anthem and subsequent film Alice’s Restaurant, among many other quintessential folk classics.

Abbey’s novel, The Monkey Wrench Gang is the unifying thread in this film that addresses the plight of the American Southwest uniquely and with a sense of humor reminiscent of Abbey himself. Focusing on the real people behind the book’s characters Doc Sarvis, Seldom Seen Smith, Bonnie Abzug and George Washington Hayduke, the film explores their fearless (if mischievous) commitment to protecting wilderness.

“This film gives a voice to those, both young and old, who participate inside the activist community,” said Lincoln, “I am thrilled that Arlo had an interest in the project. He’s such a national and international treasure.”

It was Thanksgiving 1965 that events took place at the church which inspired Arlo Guthrie to write the song Alice’s Restaurant. His annual Thanksgiving concert will take place at Carnegie Hall on Saturday, November 27th at 8:00 pm. Tickets on sale now through the Carnegie Hall Box Office.

ML Lincoln is an award-winning photographer and filmmaker. Her 2007 documentary Drowning River has received several festival awards. The film, featuring singer/songwriter/activist Katie Lee, tells the story of this eloquent and feisty woman’s 50-year battle against the Arizona politics and corporate agendas that ‘murdered’ her beloved Glen Canyon.

Lines Across the Sand is currently in post-production and expected to hit the festival circuit in 2011.  For more information about ML Lincoln’s upcoming film, visit www.linesacrossthesand.com.
