Twin Oaks Tavern in Penngrove is under new management by a familiar Napa Valley face.
"We are a honky-tonk juke joint and our pledge
is to keep the Twin Oaks Tavern what it has been for almost 100 years,"
says Sheila Groves-Tracey, who is now at the helm of this beloved
Groves-Tracey has been a top
talent buyer in the North Bay for 26 years for venues such as The Mystic
Theatre, New George's, and Uptown Theatre Napa.
Groves-Tracey said she plans to
keep all the best qualities of the Tavern intact, featuring live music, a full
service bar and great food with a friendly atmosphere.
Starting in December, in addition to their current
lunch menu, Rasta Dwight's BBQ will be served Friday and
Saturday nights for dinner. They will also feature
live music by some of the bay area’s best bands.
The Twin Oaks Tavern
originally opened in 1924 as a road house tavern and gas station catering to
those traveling the main thoroughfare now known as Old Redwood Highway.
Previous to that time, the land had originally been occupied by the Miwok Indians and later was that of General Vallejo. Around the time the Twin Oaks opened its doors, Penngrove was known as the original Egg Capital of the World but it eventually lost that title to its neighboring city Petaluma. The title it did retain was home of the Best Tavern north of San Francisco!
