A Healdsburg landmark is in danger of closing down – the Singletree Cafe, a popular breakfast and lunch restaurant for decades. Extensive street work on Healdsburg Ave. and the installation of the “roundabout” just down the street has made reaching this down-home diner difficult, sometimes impossible.
On Sunday, Aug. 20, Healdsburg Jazz in conjunction with several other local friends is putting on a day-long community benefit concert and barbecue, with jazz, rock, blues and Mexican music and other performers, too! Tickets available on this site, suggested donations starting at $20 and going higher if you appreciate the Singletree as much as we all do. More about this event.
Let’s come together as a community to save this historic landmark!
