Centennial Park 600

Centennial Park 600 Nickerson Drive (805) 237-3988 prcityrecreation On the second Friday of each month from 7-9 pm, the banquet room at Centennial Park transforms into a Dance Hall experience that has been attracting a growing crowd of local dancers for the past year. The 3,000 square foot wooden dance floor is a dancer’s dream providing plenty of room to move and practice. Add in a DJ that has an extensive music library and welcomes requests, light snacks and tables tucked away to relax and visit in between dances, and you have the makings for a wonderful evening. As an extra bonus, the Dance Hall planned for February 9 will have a Valentine’s Day theme. Dance Hall founder Tina Scarsella, who has been dancing for close to 25 years, saw the need for this type of experience when she relocated to the area two years ago. When Tina was unable to find a place that provided the type of Dance Hall she was longing for in Paso, she decided to collaborate with Paso Robles Recreation Services to start one. The concept has caught on in a big way. “When I started Dance Hall, my vision was to provide an opportunity and a place for those who love to dance to get together on a Friday night and enjoy the fun of a traditional Dance Hall experience while helping to build a strong and healthy community,” says Scarsella. New this year is the addition of dance lessons offered by professional ballroom dance instructors Dan and Sharon Davis prior to the Dance Hall from 6-6:45 pm for $5 a lesson. These lessons will focus on a different type of dance each month allowing participants to learn the steps before practicing during Dance Hall. Dance lessons will include swing, waltz, foxtrot, cha cha and rumba. Want to give Dance Hall a try? A punch pass for 10 entries is being offered for $50 or dancers may pay $5 for a single entry. Dancers who attend the Dance Hall in February through May, are invited to bring a friend for free! Just clip and bring the coupon below to receive this special offer. For information about all Recreation classes please visit or call (805) 237-3988. Bring a Friend for FREE Present this coupon to receive one free entrance to the Paso Robles Dance Hall with one paid admission. Offer Good Through May 2018. With Joan Martin Fee at Centennial Park

SOMETHING WORTH READING By Millie Drum Oddette’s grandmother Granga made BBQ sauce during the Depression Era out of love for her children. “I am what my Grandma made me. Dishing from my kitchen and sharing the love are the two things I love the best!” Oddette established her business in 2003. While catering and producing her famous BBQ sauce has carried her business through 15 years and counting, her true passion is cooking to “share the love.” “My true love is preparing small, intimate dinners for 12 or less where time and money are not the object. The food, flavors, atmosphere, energy and people are the focus. This would be the ideal way for me to live out my days.” Oddette is looking over Grandmother Granga’s shoulder with Mother Ophelia nearby. For an authentic N’awlins Mardi Gras feast at Arroyo Robles Winery, make reservations for Saturday, Feb. 17 at 5 p.m. Menu features lots of seafood, Andouille sausage, tasso, Creole seasoning, gumbo file and perfectly paired Arroyo Robles wines! For reservations, call Arroyo Robles at 805-226-5454. Oddette’s Creole Kitchen opened at Arroyo Robles Winery in downtown Paso in May 2017. Their partnership began in 2005, leading to a first-place award in 2007 at the Rotary’s Winemaker’s Cook-Off. “Every Friday, I serve Fried Chicken and Waffles at Arroyo Robles from 6 to 9 p.m. I also offer specials Macaroni and Cheese, Fried Catfish and Greens, Meatloaf and Cabbage.” Every Thursday, she serves at D’Anbino Vineyard and Cellars for their Real Blues Jam Session from 6:30 to 9:30 p.m. To share more love, visit or call 805-610-3778.
