February; a month of love, dogs and races


Written By: Bill Gould for Menifee Buzz
I am excited for February, because January ended with the best night of rock n roll Menifee has ever seen. Local performers Universal Trap performed Pink Floyd’s ‘Dark Side of the Moon’ at The Pit Stop, complete with a video projection and spot on solos, see a video here http://youtu.be/Emu86oSOsnY. Playing to a packed house, they got a long standing ovation at the end of their set.
This month gets off to a running start with a big event on Saturday February 11 at Lake Skinner, ‘Running for Pets’. This 5k run / walk event aims to raise awareness of healthy family lifestyles with your pet, including fund raising for the “Cause For Paws” group. This is a dog friendly event and camping spots are available, visit www.RunningForPets.com registration info.
Are you overwhelmed by the thought of the 14th? Not sure what you should do for your ‘special someone’? I suggest making plans to stay in Menifee and support local businesses. If you are looking for a unique Valentine’s Day meal I suggest Hana Sushi at 30098 Haun Road in the Menifee Countryside Marketplace. Hana Sushi is a nice place with beautiful food – worth a try if you haven’t been before.
In a race of another sort, there are upcoming elections this year; one of them is for the California State Assembly District 67. Phil Paule, a local man who was first elected in 2006 and re-elected in 2010 as a member of the Board of Directors for the Eastern Municipal Water District is running for this seat. Phil is holding his campaign kickoff Saturday February 18 from 8am – 11am at Boston Billies, located at 26800 Cherry Hills Blvd, Menifee. Come on down, enjoy a breakfast buffet and meet Phil in person.
