WHAT'S HAPPENING

Spring Flings

Late April and early May is an exciting time in the northern part of Sonoma County. As Healdsburg and neighboring towns continue to come out of stringent COVID-19 restrictions, there are more activities to do every week. Here’s a sneak peek at three happenings we’ve got on our list.

Spring is the best season at the Russian River Rose Company, a private rose garden a few miles south of town. Generally the garden is only open by appointment, but every spring it opens to the public every Saturday and Sunday from 10 a.m. to 5 p.m. During these times, visitors can wander the facility and marvel at the garden that comprises more than 650 different roses and 220 different irises, or they can sign up for several different guided tours. Lucky guests may even catch the fragrant roses being processed into rose water and oil. Every visitor receives a sample of the garden’s rose water sorbet.

Everything is coming together nicely at The Matheson, Chef Dustin Valette’s latest project on the Healdsburg Plaza. Valette, who already owns an eponymous restaurant across North Street from Single Thread, expects the new digs to open by June 1. The Matheson will feature two separate restaurants: A fine-dining concept on the ground level and a more casual take on the rooftop. The project also will have what Valette is calling a “wine wall” with a high-tech system that administers tasting-sized pours of nearly 90 different wines. Follow The Matheson on Instagram for up-to-the-minute updates, and stay tuned here for more news on the opening of what is sure to be Healdsburg’s next major hotspot. Featured below.

We’re already addicted to the scones, muffins, breads, and other baked goods from our newest neighbor, Quail & Condor bakery located just across Healdsburg Avenue from the Mill District site. Now we’ve got another reason to love the place: pop-up dinners. Co-owners (and life partners) Melissa Yanc and Sean McGaughey have been teaming up for periodic and ticketed one-night-only events, and the food has been amazing to put it mildly. The last pop up happened last week. The theme: Sichuan Night, with Yang and McGauchey serving up some of their favorite Chinese food.

PROJECT UPDATE Setting the Backbone

To the untrained observer, it might not look like much is happening on our site, but lots is going on—the kind of work that serves as the literal and figurative infrastructure for all of the development still to come. According to Jim Hall, director of design and construction, crews currently are “setting the backbone” for the entire neighborhood.

FEATURE Velo is Back

Winter is over, the rains are behind us, and vines are budding out – all of which heralds the return of Mill District Velo. Consider Mill District Velo a cycling-specific focus on Healdsburg and Sonoma County and it is by no means exclusive but is for, by, and about passionate cyclists.

SPOTLIGHT Laura King

When Laura thinks about what she loves most about Sonoma County, she doesn’t think of it as Wine Country. She thinks of it as “Ride Country.” King has always associated Sonoma County with some of the best cycling in the world.
