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.
