Tyler Texas Bed and Breakfast-The Rosevine Inn-The Best in East Texas

Innkeeper Rose Vine Inn Bed & Breakfast

This whole blog is going to be pretty much about what to do during the Azalea Trails in Tyler this year.  They are starting March 15 and will go through April 7th!  Wow that is 4 weekends and 3 weeks! Easter Sunday falls right in the middle.  We already discussed a few happenings in the last blog. The Historic Home Candlelight tour event on March 15. It will feature a home on Robertson that you will only be able to tour that night.  We also discussed the 10-K and fun run on March 23rd. Always a treat. We will now feature what we did not talk about. If I repeat-please forgive!!
Let’s get started.

     Nick is a single, Italian-American guy from New Jersey. His parents retired and moved to Florida. That doesn’t mean his family isn’t still in Jersey. In fact, he sees both sets of his grandparents every Sunday for dinner. This is routine until he has to tell them that he’s been offered a dream job. The job he’s been waiting for–marketing executive–would take him away from his beloved, but annoying, grandparents. He tells them. The news doesn’t sit so well. Thus begins a series of schemes to keep Nick around. How could he betray his family’s love to move to Seattle, for a job, wonder his grandparents? Well, Frank, Aida, Nunzio and Emma do their level best, and that includes bringing to dinner the lovely–and single–Caitlin O’Hare as bait…we won’t give the ending away here.

World Maker Faire New York, the other flagship event, has grown in three years to 500+ makers and 55,000 attendees. Detroit, Kansas City, Newcastle (UK), and Tokyo are the home of “featured” Maker Faires (200+ makers), and community-driven, independently organized Mini Maker Faires are now being produced around the United States and the world—including right here in Tyler.
