Things to do in Sacramento and Beyond

The Bee's guide to events, activities, arts and entertainment

A fashionable Second Saturday

furry.jpgDon't let a few raindrops prevent you from making plans for Second Saturday. The Bee's forecast calls for the inclement weather to move out, and that means a good day - and evening - for shopping.

Here's what I see as the best bets:

* Beauty and the Furry Fashion Show: Felicia Strati Boutique and 4 Paws Pet Boutique team for this event, which will feature models of both the two-legged and four-legged variety.

As you can probably guess, this is a popular show (the last one is shown, left, in a photo by John Phillips) that highlights fashions for women and pets. And all for a good cause - Shriners Hospitals for Children.

For a $10 donation, attendees can see the show, visit the VIP tent (wine and hors d'ourves) and enjoy music by DJ Supa C Munky. The models' hair will be done by a new salon, Apartment 19. Other sponsors include Bali Wine Bar and Grill, China Cafe, Revolution Wines, Tirzah's desserts, L Street Lofts, Urban Hound Properties, L Wine Lounge and Urban Kitchen, Zocalo and Restaurant 55 Degrees.

Sounds like eating will be just as big a deal as the fashions. Check it out at 1901 Capitol Ave., starting at 6:30 p.m.

* Happy anniversary: Just down the street from the fashion show, the boutique Le Petit Paris (1221 19th St.), which brings a touch of the City of Lights to the City of Trees, will mark its second anniversary. Owner Tassina Placencia says she's always been inspired by Paris and has "dreamed of bringing a bit of it home."

Tassina now visits Paris several times a year to shop for her store and to lead shopping tours for customers. So what will you find in her shop? Women's and children's designer clothing, designer accessories and toys, and really wonderful-smelling home accents.

The celebration is from 6 to 9 p.m.

* Trunk show: I've been eagerly awaiting this event, a C&C California trunk show. This one will be from 11 a.m. to 5 p.m. Saturday at Serendipity Boutique, 5362 H St.

I checked with the store earlier this week, and they say the plan is to have items we Sacramentans can't easily get our hands on, i.e., cashmere tops and plenty of those comfy layering tees. Don't miss it!

* Tempting offer: Lush Salon & Spa will host a Tempt Me Tease Me fashion show from 6 to 9 p.m. at the salon, 2000 I St. Designer Adrienne Cheng will present her Reject clothing line. The featured artist will be Sol Collective Gallery.

Of course, Lush will be doing hair and makeup for the models with an assist from Spanish Fly Hair Garage. The event is free; the fashion show starts at 8 p.m.

About Comments

Reader comments on are the opinions of the writer, not The Sacramento Bee. If you see an objectionable comment, click the "report abuse" button below it. We will delete comments containing inappropriate links, obscenities, hate speech, and personal attacks. Flagrant or repeat violators will be banned. See more about comments here.

What You Should Know About Comments on is happy to provide a forum for reader interaction, discussion, feedback and reaction to our stories. However, we reserve the right to delete inappropriate comments or ban users who can't play nice. (See our full terms of service here.)

Here are some rules of the road:

• Keep your comments civil. Don't insult one another or the subjects of our articles. If you think a comment violates our guidelines click the "report abuse" button to notify the moderators. Responding to the comment will only encourage bad behavior.

• Don't use profanities, vulgarities or hate speech. This is a general interest news site. Sometimes, there are children present. Don't say anything in a way you wouldn't want your own child to hear.

• Do not attack other users; focus your comments on issues, not individuals.

• Stay on topic. Only post comments relevant to the article at hand. If you want to discuss an issue with a specific user, click on his profile name and send him a direct message.

• Do not copy and paste outside material into the comment box.

• Don't repeat the same comment over and over. We heard you the first time.

• Do not use the commenting system for advertising. That's spam and it isn't allowed.

• Don't use all capital letters. That's akin to yelling and not appreciated by the audience.

You should also know that The Sacramento Bee does not screen comments before they are posted. You are more likely to see inappropriate comments before our staff does, so we ask that you click the "report abuse" button to submit those comments for moderator review. You also may notify us via email at Note the headline on which the comment is made and tell us the profile name of the user who made the comment. Remember, comment moderation is subjective. You may find some material objectionable that we won't and vice versa.

If you submit a comment, the user name of your account will appear along with it. Users cannot remove their own comments once they have submitted them, but you may ask our staff to retract one of your comments by sending an email to Again, make sure you note the headline on which the comment is made and tell us your profile name.
