Join us for Eats at the Creeks!
You’re invited to Eats at the Creeks from 5-7 p.m. on Wednesday, Jan. 4, 2017. Located in The Creeks of River Ridge at 2001 Oak Creek Rd., local food trucks will offer some of the city’s best grub: Diva Dawg Food Truck, La Cocinita and Kona Ice will all join in on the local flavor!
Come on over and join us in supporting local businesses, while adding a dash of fun to the midweek work grind! Entrance to this event is free and open to the public — just remember to bring some spare change for Kona Ice since it’s cash-only.
With beautiful fall temperatures, we’re making the most of our time outside at the Farmers Market in Citrus Creek Apartments, one of many communities within our River Ridge apartments.
Whether or not you live at Citrus Creek (or maybe you’re interested in moving there), you’re welcome to stop by our next Farmers Market on Thursday, November 17 from 4 until 7 p.m. Browse or buy locally grown and made food and objects at this outdoor, River Ridge market centrally located in the middle of Elmwood at 5301 Citrus Blvd, Elmwood, LA 70123! We’re providing all the entertainment, too, with live music as you shop and mingle with your neighbors. Oh, and it’s dog-friendly!
In addition to the array of locally made products available at the Farmers Market, we will also have staff on hand to give tours of the property and answer any questions you may have about Citrus Creek or our other River Ridge apartments.
At the Bella Ridge Brown Bag Wine Tasting Party, our residents and their guests tasted 8 different wines ranging from $6 – $38. Sip after sip, votes for the crowd favorites poured in.
Contending for the crown in the Merlot category, we had Chateau Ste. Michelle, Crow Canyon, Swanson Vineyards and Ramspeck. Among the Sauvignon Blanc contenders were Oak Grove Vineyards, Mohua, J. Lohr and Cake Bread Cellars.
The winners? You might be surprised.
- Crow Canyon ($6)

- Ramspeck ($19)
- Swanson Vineyards ($38)
- J. Lohr ($17)
- Oak Grove Vineyards ($8)

Turns out your wallet doesn’t have to take a hit for you to snag wine that’s the hit of the party! Win your friends over this weekend with a wine that’s surprisingly inexpensive and incredibly delicious!
To sip on something from this list, visit Martin Wine Cellar or any local grocer!
