Save October 13 for the grooviest party of the year

AnniversayYes, we’ve been talking about BriarPatch’s 40th anniversary all year, but now it’s almost time for our big celebration party on Thursday, October 13 at the Miners Foundry.

This year’s gathering will be different from our annual Co-op Owner Meeting dinners of recent years. We’re transforming the usual sit-down event into a full-blown party! We’re clearing the dance floor so that Power of Twelve, Nevada County’s own awesome funk, soul, and R n’ B band can get everybody on their feet and grooving.

While the Main Hall is rocking, the Stone Hall will be the place to mingle, get a photo taken in your vintage garb, have a peace sign or a heart painted on your face, enjoy our Co-op history slideshow, or just sit down and enjoy a bite. An amazing array of appetizers from the Co-op kitchen will include favorite foods from four decades served in both halls. Bars will be located in both the foyer and upper gallery.

Power of 12 Band

Local band Power of Twelve will bring high energy and funk, soul, and R n’ B covers.

Come and enjoy the music of Sly and the Family Stone, Aretha Franklin, Santana, Chaka Khan, Prince, Tower of Power, and more. You’re invited to wear vintage t-shirts or clothing that takes you back to the ’70s, ’80s, or ’90s. This party only happens once in four decades, so mark your calendar and join us!

Please note that the party is for Co-op owners only, and admission is just 40¢. Please bring a donation of non-perishable food for the Food Bank. You can pay at BriarPatch as you check out starting August 1. If you sign up in advance you’ll be automatically entered to win a BriarPatch anniversary mug (and you also help us plan how much food we’ll need).

Come to the Co-op Owner Meeting pre-party

The Co-op Owner Meeting will be held prior to the party on the same date, Thursday, October 13, from 5:00 p.m. to 6:00 p.m. at the Nevada Theatre. Get the inside story as we look back at the past year and consider our future. Your questions will be welcomed!
