Things to do in Sacramento and Beyond

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

UGGs are anything but ugly. Really


I don't care what anyone thinks (and you know who you are in The Bee's newsroom): The UGG in UGG boots doesn't stand for ugly. And if you've ever owned a pair, you know it's darn near impossible to go back to stilettos after wearing any of the numerous UGG styles.

If you haven't, here's your chance to check out the latest trends in UGG boots at Franco Ferrini in the Pavilions shopping center, from 3 to 7 p.m. Thursday. (The showroom also will be hosting UGG Australia rep Miles Olson, who will be available to answer questions.)

I admit this is a draw, too: In addition to the cute boots, wine and cheese will be served!

So, what are some of the newest UGG styles? Store manager Erica Kazinec lists the Sunburst (shearling on the sides) as a favorite. Another is the Sundance II, which comes in black and can be rolled down. There are wedge UGGs and even versions with prints, such as mosaics. Erica says her store also has an exclusive on the UGG classic short boot in rum raisin.

For more information: (916) 927-3336.

* Also on Thursday, Five Figs Couture in Davis will serve up an evening of fun and fashion, featuring four of the store's most devoted clients modeling the latest fall and holiday apparel.

The event is to benefit Sonrisa Vida Sana, an outreach program that promotes health education for low-income Latino communities, including migrant farmworkers. The program focuses on Yolo and Solano counties; a portion of the evening's clothing sales will go to the grassroots program.

The shoppers-turned-models: Kelly Calhoun, Bonnie Krupp, Ginger Joyce and Lois Sherman.

The event is from 6 to 8 p.m. at the store, 231 E St., Suite 3. Call Ann Kormos, who heads the benefit, for more information: (530) 756-3500.

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.

hide comments

On October 14, The Sacramento Bee will temporarily remove commenting from While we design the upgrade, we encourage you to tell us what you like and don't like about commenting on and other websites.
