For Immediate Release: Twisted Oak Winery Announces Summer Concert Series
What: Summer Concert Series – “Folk at the Oak”
Where: Twisted Oak Winery, 4280 Red Hill Rd at Hwy 4, Vallecito
(between Angels Camp and Murphys)
Looking for something that pairs perfectly with a Tempranillo and is more fun than a barrel of rubber chickens? May we suggest a stunning vista overlooking Calaveras County vineyards, a hearty dinner, and a concert under the stars? The location at Twisted Oak Winery in Vallecito, offers a made-for-each other combination of idyllic setting, yummy award-winning wines, and plenty of space to spread out your blanket to enjoy a family-friendly evening of acoustic, folk, bluegrass, and Americana music, with the iconic Twisted Oak Tree serving as the centerpiece.
Confirmed artists include: Bushwalla (May 12); Peter Rowan (June 29); Laurie Lewis & Tom Rozum with the Bee Eaters (July 6); Uncle Bonsai (a twisted folk trio from Seattle, July 20); Maria Muldaur (July 27); The Joe Craven Trio (Aug 18); Darol Anger with Emy Phelps, Sharon Gilchrist and Rushad Eggleston (Aug 24); and an evening of classical/world music mandolin duets with Mike Marshall & Caterina Lichtenberg (Sept 7). More shows to be added.
“The rubber chickens have been clamoring for years to get more live music up here at the winery,” said Jeff Stai, owner and El Jefe of Twisted Oak Winery. “We’re excited to be bringing such top musical talent to Calaveras County, so maybe those chickens will shut up now.”
Visit www.twistedoak.com and Twisted Oak on Facebook (facebook.com/twistedoak) for concert and event updates.
Dinner, that yummy Twisted Oak wine, soft drinks, and water will be available for purchase. Outside alcoholic beverages are not permitted. Bring blankets and low-back chairs for seating. Seating is first-come, first-served. Pirate attire always encouraged.
Twisted Oak Winery, located in Calaveras County in the Sierra Foothills, produces award-winning fine wines made from grape varieties native to the Rhône Valley of France, Spain, and Portugal. We also enjoy hanging around with rubber chickens and dressing up like pirates.

You don't have to go to a restaurant, you don't have to go to a fast food joint, you don't have to dress up, you don't have to go someplace and swing around on a pole...
But you do need to leave the house and go someplace. It can be a five-star restaurant, or it can be a friend's house.
Just *%#&@! GO!

Your rubber chicken does not have to be rubber, but it does have to be a chicken, and it does have to look somewhat rubber-like. It does not have to be an Original Recipe Twisted Oak Rubber Chicken (though it wouldn't hurt either.) In a pinch you can even even use a flat cutout of a picture of a rubber chicken for your rubber chicken.
Just take it out to dinner and take a *%#&@! picture!
(We're not sure what this rubber chicken is actually made of... photo by 2011 finalist Danielle Dearing.)
OK, we can't tell from your photo whether you are having breakfast for dinner (or dinner for breakfast, for that matter).
So... of course, it doesn't matter what the food is or what time of day. Take your rubber chicken out for a meal, take some pictures, and have fun. (And if you have this Fluffy Guy in your dinner party, be sure to bring extra cake.)
(Take Your Rubber Chicken To Dinner ends April 23rd! Details at www.twistedoak.com/tyrctd)
