Like I said, I am no beer connoisseur. I don't know the lingo or brands or nothing. I just love beer. So, when I say we start talking isn't very true. It was more like I sat and listened with wide eyed amazement at all the information and name dropping that occurred. It was awesome. Everyone new more than me and I loved it. I want to learn more about craft beers. Howie and Sons is a great place to enjoy incredible beers and excellent conversation.

No stranger to operations at the Visalia Marriott, Groover came to Visalia, CA in 2006 with the Presidian hotel management and development company. She played an integral part in opening the Visalia Marriott hotel by developing and implementing the hotel’s sales and marketing plan. She was also responsible for meeting revenue goals, planning client conferences and conventions, and overseeing recruitment, training and development of the sales management team.
If you live in central California, we will be having breakfast with you on Friday, June 3, as the band joins the cast of the #1 Fresno morning TV show. FOX-TV’s “Great Day” will feature six of my songs live. Tune in and start the day with us and then go Bluesin’ with us later on that night in Visalia. That’s right, Friday, June 3, we are in downtown Visalia for Blues, Brews and BBQ! I am very excited to bring the band to Visalia for a night on Main street at Garden Plaza! Looking forward to seeing all our hometown friends there.
June 9th-August 6th

108 S. Church, Visalia. We walked into a small waiting space made smaller with tables set beside the window for those who want to stay and eat. The counter and display cases are painted black. I saw that and thought edgy, dark goth mini cakes of death. But the ladies that buy boxes and boxes of these cupcakes are far from that lifestyle and from the people I saw behind the counter, so are they. This is soccer mom, church every Sunday unless you are at the coast or up in the cabin country. I am sure they will repaint or soften the harsh contrast. I am sure newborns love the black and white room. Maybe that’s their angle. Come for the cupcakes, stay for your baby to be mesmerized.
For your first trip, you will have to take what is available. The menu changes everyday with three special flavors and some that are made daily: Cinnamon Red Velvet, Vanilla Butter, Black and White (like the store front), Triple Chocolate and Psychedelic. I came on a day when they premiered a cupcake not available previously, called the Banana Dipped Chocolate. The most memorable thing about it for me and Abby is that we could taste frosting and banana. It had a banana chunk inside the center. That was cool. The cupcake was sweet, too sweet for me. I actually like my cupcakes without frosting. Weird, I know.
Over all, I don’t get the color scheme. I think it contradicts the fanciness of the cupcakes. They are very pretty. Despite the beauty and fanciness it was still just a cupcake and a cupcake ain’t worth $2.50 or $3. Will Visalia be able to support a cupcake shop for long? I would be very interested to see if it can.
