    I liked the old name better! Don't know how I feel about eating "crub".

    Crazy how cheap D'ville real estate is.
    There were two separate houses with an acre or so between them further up Main street that went for somewhere in the 300's a few years back.

    I don't know why Silicon Valley hasn't found this place and straight out bought it all yet. As long as you don't need a job or any income, Downieville is an awesome place to live!

    I have been trying to convince my parents to sell their house (which is a mile from the new Apple HQ) and use the cash to buy outright a house in D'Ville and also somewhere on the North Coast. And they would still have tons of $ to burn...

    We ate there last year and the owner said she was not going to sell and appeared to enjoy the whole set up.
    Lead by my Lefty............... right down the trail, no brakes.

    If you spend a week in Downieville in the dead of winter, it might change your perspective of it as a "an awesome place to live". It's in a steep canyon and often ice cold because of the lack of sunshine. Most of the best spots for biking, river, swimming, fishing, etc. are frequently not available until late spring.

    Just saw a Yelp post that indicated the Grubstake is closed ... ? What is the scoop with the other businesses in town (besides the bike shops) ? Is the little grocery store still open ? Headed to D'ville in September with a couple of first-timers and I need to prepare them for what's ahead
