Winter evenings are warm and welcoming out on the RNR’s back patio, especially Saturday nights when some of the best bands around are booked to perform. The Tom Finn Band plays this Saturday, and then we skip a Saturday due to the conflicting ever-popular Guerneville Parade of Lights. We’re still open! Join us afterwards.
On December 14, we’ll have the Honeydippers for the first time. Rollicking fun and good music as they play R&B, Funk, Rock, even some Gospel. And on December 21, The THUGZ are going to rev up the decibels with their Hippie Holidaze Party! Come join us for all our events!
Sleeping Indoors, a comic-drama written by Jim Holt and directed by John Rowan, runs every Friday and Saturday night at 8 pm, and every Sunday at 2 pm, from November 29 through December 22.

You can make reservations for that benefit performance by calling WCCS directly at 707-604-7264.
The opening weekend is pay-what-you-can; thereafter, general admission is $15, except the final matinee on Sunday, December 22, which is a fundraising gala for Pegasus with complimentary champagne and hors d’oeuvres for $30. Wine sales are available at Saturday evening performances.

Pegasus Theater is heading to the East Coast, where it snows for the holidays, the setting of Sleeping Indoors, written by Jim Holt and directed by John Rowan. Please join the work party on Sunday, November 10 from noon to 5pm. No, that’s not a typo—it’s on Sunday, not the traditional Saturday, for just this work party. They’ll be painting the flats and doing other tasks. Please let John Rowan know if you can come at johnrowan14365 (at) gmail.com. The hotel rooms and the Moon River Marketplace at the historic Rio Nido Lodge have been renovated and are now open for business. So, the front of the main parking lot is reserved for Lodge guests. Look for signs directing you to the Pegasus parking areas.

Early 1900′s view of the front parking area as you pulled into Rio Nido. The building you see was demolished in 2002 or 2003. If you know more about this photo or have some of your own to share, send us an email at Websters (at) rionido.net. Big thanks to Brett Gibbs and the Rio Nido Lodge for passing this along.
Thanks to Margaret Benelli for scanning her Aunt Assunta “Sue” Benelli’s album and sharing them with us in Rio Nido. Please check out the Benelli Family gallery. And here’s a photo of Aunt Sue who participated in the Rio Nido ladies footrace.
Pegasus Theater Company will present Driving Miss Daisy, Alfred Uhry’s moving comic-drama about aging and prejudice, at the Rio Nido Lodge, September 13 through October 6.
When Daisy Werthan, a stubborn aging Jewish widow in Atlanta, crashes her car, her son Boolie hires Hoke Colburn, a dignified African-American, to be her chauffeur. Deeply resentful about losing her independence, Daisy sees Hoke as a challenge to her desire to “do for herself.”
Driving Miss Daisy runs every Friday and Saturday night at 8 pm, from September 13 through October 6, and every Sunday at 4 pm except on September 22. The opening weekend is pay-what-you-can; thereafter, general admission is $15, except the final matinee on October 6, which is a fundraising gala for Pegasus with complimentary champagne and hors d’oeuvres for $30.
You can make reservations online at www.pegasustheater.com or by calling 583-2343. Reservations can be confirmed only if they are made at least three hours before the performance.
