Citrine is the stunning birthstone for November, and it’s beautiful color is the perfect representation of autumn. Citrine is a yellow to red-orange colored quartz that has been gaining more and more popularity in recent years, especially due to its durability and modest price tag. Citrine is known as the “success stone” and is said to radiate positive energy.

Local Gems

PLACES TO GO : Lynwood Brewery

Lynwood is one of our favorite spots to head for a craft beer. This award winning brewery has a wide selection of craft beer, with both year-round and seasonal specialties. Our favorite is the Bad Leroy English Brown, but we also recommend the porters (their current seasonal porter is the Big Papi). This place has a great atmosphere and is the perfect place to stop to try out a new brew.

Wilson’s Eatery

Last spring Lynnwood Brewing opened a restaurant, Wilson’s Eatery, at their taproom. We highly recommend the pulled pork nachos, pimento cheese on pork cracklins, and all of the flatbreads. As animal lovers, we are big fans of the fact Wilson’s donates 5% of their sales to local animal shelters.
