Looking forward to it! This is going to be such a fun, interesting event.
It was certainly on the Sac365.com website like every other amazing event in Sacramento! ;-) http://sacramento365.com/event/detail/441647999/Special_Screening_Shut_Up_and_Play_the_Hits
I knew Norm before he left and always loved his zest for life. When I heard about this book I immediately wanted to read it and support his cause. It was exciting to read about his adventures and experiences around the world. Most importantly, it was inspiring! Inspiring to explore this amazing world we live in and learn to appreciate all that we have and are capable of- on a spiritual and personal level rather than material. Thanks for the great article in supporting his new venture.
Thanks for writing this article...it's nice to get a non-biased opinion and here it in your words. However, isn't there supposed to be some help with copy editing? It's a little hard to read past all of the little grammatical errors. It's not your fault, but I think it takes away from your story a bit. I would think that there would have been some help there.
I think there is an 'official' name for this event, but I didn't see it mentioned anywhere in this article. It would help to note it so that people can easily refer to it and tell their friends about it. I believe it's called "Soup Line"? Other than that, great article!
Generally, City employees have the day off. I imagine State workers do as well...other than that, we're not sure, but know that some people either have the day off or take it off. Since we don't generally feature Monday events in our Top 10 event listings since they are sent out on Mondays, we saw an opportunity to share these events with everyone.
Congrats on the new position Elizabeth. We all look forward to seeing the MBA thrive under your leadership. I'm especially excited to hear that you are looking to "create stronger relationships with our counterparts in neighboring districts" and think that "As adjacent neighbors, we’re better-served if we’re working together and in close communication." Work together not against each other! Hopefully your new leadership will offer a fresh perspective and allow this to happen.
Great round-up Amanda! Just fyi, the Utz & the Shuttlecocks show at Harlow's is sold out. Good thing there are plenty of other parties to choose from! We'll be posting another round-up as well for some more ideas for all of our celebratory Sacramentans.
What a great review Melanie! Too bad the show is over... I suppose there is always next time...
Although I have not seen it myself, I appreciate your blatant honesty. Not every review is going to be positive! This is constructive criticism at is best. Honest and thorough with examples to back up your assessment. Even if the majority of the public may disagree with you, I applaud your candor.
I thought Method Echo would be there too...I'll have to look into that...
How could I forget!! I am even going to this show:
Rock & Rhyme w/ Method Echo
When: Saturday @ 9pm, Where: Harlows, Cost: $10
They were featured on 100.5 The Zone as the Top Unsigned artist, and debuted Day in The Zone with Chris Daughtry, and Lifehouse. Method just took 1st place at Hard Rock Cafe's battle of bands, and will be playing all of their latest hits this special night!
These guys are great. Good energy and sound. Check 'em out before you have to pay the big bucks to see them!
Sounds fun! At least you can wear some headphones while you're at it or somehow try to make it more enjoyable right? We all have to succumb to those "events" sometimes. Three day weekends are perfect for it! Thanks for your comment thsas, hope you feel good about getting all that stuff done around the house! :)
I think it's great that people are expressing their concerns regarding these sorts of events. Although it seems unfortunate that the organizers of this Midfest are having a hard time getting support from the surrounding neighborhood, it is ultimately a good thing that the residents concerns are being heard. Thank you to Sacramento Press for yet another outlet to hear from the people of the city.
In agreement with Zen, any event that is being held within a residential neighborhood should have to comply with "good neighbor" policies (i.e. monitor sound levels, parking arrangements, trash-pickup, and behavior monitoring). Everyone has been commenting about the Bloc Party on Cinco de Mayo- I myself was appalled to ride my bike by Zocalo on May 6th to find that there was still trash and street closure remnants lingering well into the afternoon.
I would love for Sacramento to have more outdoor events and street festivals. However, the organizers need to held accountable for the cleanup and responsible management of the event. Simply offering the residents a hotel room is not a responsible way to handle situations such as these- like William said, who wants to leave their home succeptible to unruly patrons from unorganized and poorly managed events?
To their defense, it sounds like MidFest organizers are trying to be mindful of the nearby residents with earlier end times and resident notifications. If they weren't before, than they sure are going to need to ramp up their plan! Otherwise, it's going to just get harder for the next one...
How could I forget!! I neglected to add a fundraiser that I will be attending:
A Cure For Kayla: A fundraiser & networking mixer to raise awareness and funds for myotonic dystrophy a common form of muscular dystrophy that can affect infants, children and adults. This event is in honor of Rocklin’s 3 1/2 year old Kayla Vittek, who was born with and lives today with congenital myotonic dystrophy.
This event will be held this Thursday night (4/30) at Tre Restaurant (1212 Howe-Howe & Hurley) from 5:30pm-7:30pm. Tickets are $20. Go to: http://www.cureforkayla.eventsbot.com/ to buy tickets.
Thank you for your comments John. You are right! I should've named the bands plaing at CIP this week- in addition to Sol Peligro, Retrograde Revolution & La Noche Oskura will be there. I noticed that you were mentioning some events that will be coming up in future weeks. For the purpose of this article that I write every week, I focus on the events for that specific week. There are so many awesome things going on, it's virtually impossible to list them all even for a single week. I do note that there are many more events going on and can be found on my website as well. And just to clarify, the Unity & Diversity Festival is not free. You may want to check their website.
I appreciate that you want to plug your website too. There are many great websites that feature Sacramento events, yours being one of them. Really what this is all about is making sure we do what we can to get the word out about these events so that people come out. This way the talented & creative minds participating & putting the events together can sustain themselves and continue to support the entertainment seeking folks out there. Collectively, I hope that we can get the word out. Thanks again.
Thanks! Just happy to be getting the word out about the awesome things going on in Sacramento.
