After taking a holiday hiatus from blogging, I've taken up residence again at 21Q, and there's plenty to throw out for this weekend - especially if you're weary of the winter gloom and can't bear to watch another football game.
Here are some options:
- Bridal Showcase: Cal Expo is the venue for what's called California's largest bridal show. It's from 10 a.m. to 5 p.m. Sunday, and it's the place to be if you're planning a wedding. And that process can be as long as two years in advance, so bring your notebooks, laptops, etc., because there will be vendors representing every aspect of the wedding process: consulting, catering, entertainment, florists, hotels/lodging, invitations, limos, photographers, reception and rehearsal dinner sites, travel agencies, videographers, gift registry and, of course, wedding gowns, including accessories and groom's formalwear. And what would a bridal showcase be without fashion shows. At Sunday's event, shows will be held hourly, starting at noon. For more info, click here.
- Trunk show: Five Figs Couture in Davis will host Meagan Camp, creator and designer for Telesca Jewelry. Camp, who spent many years working in Davis, will showcase her handmade jewelry, which features vintage and antique touches and semi-precious materials. She'll be in the store from 3 to 5 p.m. Saturday. Five Figs is at 231 E St., Suite 3. For more info: (530) 756-3500.
- Second Saturday: Sacramento will be hopping tomorrow with plenty of music, art, fashion and food for Second Saturday. And take advantage of the Midtown Ice Rink at 20th Street between K and J streets. Several special events have been scheduled at the rink for the art walk, including Grooves on Ice, featuring the Emperor's Jazz, starting at 7 p.m. The rink is open 10 a.m. to 10 p.m. through Jan. 18. Cost: $8 for adults, $5 for children, $2 for skate rental.
