Barrett Junction Cafe & Mercantile

Halloween, Thanksgiving, and Christmas

We are nearing the end of the year.  Marked by the three holidays that seem to consume more money than any other.  As I said, “seem to.”  Though research has shown that more money is spent on Halloween than Thanksgiving.  Certainly there are more costumers this year than last.

What are our plans?

The Cafe is open for Halloween with a full bar, and since it is a Saturday this year, full breakfast buffet from 8 a.m. to 1 p.m.   Closed Thanksgiving and Christmas.  Open New Years.

Will you go trick or treating this year?  Would you like to attend the Halloween parties?  The Neighbors & Friends newsletter has a ?? for a possible Halloween part on the 30th.  The Potrero Branch of the San Diego County Library will host their annual Halloween Party on Friday, the 30th.  Doors open at 4 p.m. and close at 9 p.m.   Carnival, band, costume party, and a haunted house.   The weather is cooling, so be prepared to wear something warm.

The Dulzura Community Center has a church service on Sunday’s at 10 a.m.  The San Diego County Library sends their mobile library out on Thursdays.  The first and third Thursday it is at the Barrett Mobile Home park, on Barrett Lake Rd.  The second and fourth Thursday it is at the post office in Dulzura.

The Jamul Action Committee continues it’s fight to stop the building of the nearly finished casino at the Jamul Indian Reservation.  The drive by shows the structure is near ready for the finishing touches.  The graveyard has remained intact, the fire station is right across the street. Monday to Saturday traffic is slowed to 45 through that small stretch of road because of trucks entering and exiting.  To learn more and join in the fight, visit the Jamul Action Committee site. 

Another resource to consider to find the latest about some of the back country, well, Jamul and Deerhorn Valley, visit the Jamul Shopper and News. 

To stay on top of the county emergency alerts, the best subscription you can give yourself is through East County Magazine.   They are linked to the San Diego County emergency alerts system.  Also providing Amber Alerts.
