New York Fitness in Jackson presents: Charlie’s Garden Café

Meet Charlotte “Charlie” Sovereen: Having worked as a barista and baker at a French café for four years (10 years total in the industry), Charlie has adopted her menu mainly from that experience. Her philosophy is ‘quality over quantity’.

As a former athlete, Charlie has been practicing good nutrition habits, knowing the importance o balance and satisfying yourself at the same time. Her menu offers pastries made with all-natural ingredients -handmade; no artificial flavors or preservatives. She also offers gluten-free items as well as a number of delicious salads topped with her homemade Dijon vinaigrette dressing. Other items include chicken breasts cooked in white wine and dill mixed with garlic and sun dried tomatoes on a bed of mixed greens.

In her protein smoothies you will find natural additives like chia seed, wheat germ and flax. And, don’t forget to try her yogurt, fruit bowls and other items!

Charlie’s Garden Café hours of operation* are:
M-Th 6a-1p & 3p-5:15p
Friday 6a-4p
Sat. 8a-11:30a
*Hours may change as the need changes

Happy Holidays from Hotel Sutter!

Dear Friends of Hotel Sutter,

Happy Holidays to everyone!

Wow! The crazy busy season is upon us! Plaid Friday, the small town alternative to Big Box Black Fridaywas a screaming success! Thanks for shopping local this year. Your buying makes small towns like Sutter Creek work.

There are so many new things happening in Sutter Creek...PROVISIONS is now open with such a wonderful array of tasty food and drink. What a delightful addition to the area. We are so happy to have them just down the street. And, be sure to visit the BROWN EYED GIRL just across the street from us. Such cute fashions! We are thrilled to welcome these new members to our community.

Here is what's happening at Hotel Sutter this month:

For the last 15 months, we have been closed on Mondays and Tuesdays so we could work on reconstructing the building. Now, we only have a few more things to do and we can do that work early in the mornings... So now you can count on us to be open 11:30-8:00pm on Sundays, Mondays, Tuesdays & Wednesday. And, we will be open 11:30-9:00pm as usual Thursdays, Fridays, and Saturdays. As we get feedback from you, we will be adding special surprises for locals during the week. So, come and shop Sutter Creek all month long and linger over a warm, spiced cocktail or a lovely lunch or dinner with us. (You know, you can always call for take-out, too :-)

Every Sunday 10:00-2:00pm!

What a wonderful way to start your Sunday, or end your Sunday morning church service!
A chef cooking eggs any way you want them? Yes! The absolutely best sausages in the county? Yes! And crisp, applewood smoked bacon, pancakes, house made granola, fresh winter fruit salad.... and on and on. It's definitely a feast!!  Sip a FREE mimosa as a welcome in December, too.

We are featuring our delicious Hotel Sutter Lace White and/or Hotel Sutter Old Brick Red for your holiday gifting. The regular price is $56 for two bottles. The Holiday Gift price is $44! Just let us know what you need. Ho! Ho! Ho!

Saturday, December 13, is the date for this annual fun fest!  People decorate every kind of moveable vehicle with tons of lights! It is small town Americana at its most charming! Bill Byrd will be announcing the Parade from our Balcony, starting at 6:30pm. You will love it!

Would you like to enjoy a complimentary appetizer, special wine offers on our Balcony, watch the Parade, and give a wonderful gift to the Interfaith Food Bank? They do such an amazing job serving our community all year. If you would like to help them, we are selling tickets to the Balcony for the Parade for a $75 donation. We don't keep any of the money. It will be a tax deductible donation straight to them. Just call us at 209.267.0242 to reserve your place. Come and enjoy the fun.

We will be open Christmas Eve until 7:30pm so our staff can go home for the rest of the evening. We will be closed Christmas Day. We will be open New Years Eve... with a big party to bring in the New Year! Great band... The Kool Shifters!!!  Watch the ball drop on our big screen with a glass of bubbly to toast! Yes, this is the place to be to bring in 2015! Special rates for staying the night with us, too. Book soon so you can play and stay!

Thank you for being such wonderful supporters of our whole team at Hotel Sutter! We are so grateful for how you have embraced our efforts to transform this lovely old building over the last year. We appreciate every time you come to dine and play with us. Please let us know if there is anything more we can ever do to make this hotel the perfect place for you to enjoy.

Wishing you the very best holidays!

Karen Sage, Chuck Laughlin, and Darius Somary
