It seems like everywhere I go lately, people are talking about Toby Keith?s I Love This Bar and Grill, opening soon in Folsom. As we reported recently, the highly anticipated opening was ?tentatively? planned for June 15. Those in the know were hopeful they could hit that target date. Alas, they did not. A line was reportedly forming outside the bar on June 15 but the crowd was turned away. On their Facebook page, Toby Keith officials said they are trying to get things ?just right? and would let everyone know of the new planned opening date. As of Monday night, no new date was being released. So, keep those red Solo cups ready because it will open in the Palladio center sometime soon. Here?s to hoping they are open in time for the Folsom Pro Rodeo (June 19) and the Cattle Drive (June 28). Out and about The Telegraph staff has been out in the area doing what we do, with notepads and cameras in hand. We were at the El Dorado County Fair on multiple nights, at ribbon cuttings, plays, meetings and social gatherings. Of course, we can?t be everywhere and that?s why I ask our readers to submit photos of events so we can share them with others. E-mail them, along with the names of those in the photo (from left to right) to me at the e-mail address below. As I?ve written many times, this is your newspaper. I?m just at the helm for a while.
