Things to do in Sacramento and Beyond

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

May 8, 2009
Gearing up for a busy weekend around town

In addition to the Race for the Cure tomorrow at Cal Expo and Mother's Day on Sunday, here are some other events to check out - if you've got time!

* The Wardrobe clothing store in Davis is once again joining the Downtown Art About celebration with an event called "Weaver Mosaics", from 7 to 9 tonight. Come by and meet Sandy Weaver, a local artist who collects pieces of glass, tile, marble, mirror and other colorful textures and turns them into artworthy collector's items (pictured). Sandy studied mosaics at the Institute of Mosaic Art in Oakland. The Wardrobe is at 206 E St. For more info, click here.

* Serendipity Boutique in the Fountains at Roseville will host a Donna Asch jewelry trunk show from 11 a.m. to 4 p.m. Saturday - just in time for some last-minute gift ideas for mom. Donna's magnetic necklaces are one-of-a-kind. The Roseville store is at 1182 Roseville Parkway, Suite 165.

* Second Saturday will be in full swing, of course, in midtown Sacramento - and elsewhere - including a photography exhibit as well as artwork by The Bee's photography and art departments. That's from 4:30 to 8:30 p.m. in the front courtyard at 2100 Q St.

Also, Le Petit Paris (1221 19th St.) is featuring the work of Sacramento native and photographer Julie Prayter, who recently got back from a sojourn in Paris where she documented life among the Parisians. This is from 6 to 9 p.m. Saturday. Le Petit Paris owner Tassina Placencia adds that there's still spots available for her June excursion to the City of Lights. There's lots of shopping, dining and other delights. And Tassina has the boutique/cafe stocked with gift ideas - again for mom! - including handmade scarves, soaps and Just Campagne handbags (which are 50 percent off). She'll be serving Je T'aime iced tea and the cafe's special macarons on Sunday.

* Boutique owner Felicia Strati is gearing up for a Second Saturday summer fashion show right on the corner where her namesake boutique is - 19th Street and Capitol Avenue. The festivities start at 6:30 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.

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.
