Spring Flowers and Offbeat Brides, Walking for Water, plus Miami Tennis and NY Fashion

Renkoo Tip of the Week
Now on the home page of Renkoo you can see what’s new. Every week there’s something new to try at Renkoo!

Wednesday is the new Thursday

Fun things to make plans to do this week…

Wednesday
Now that spring is here, all thoughts turn to weddings! For the ultimate alterna-ceremony, check out the Offbeat Bride reading today at Third Place Books in Lake Forest Park, WA.

Thursday
World Water Day has been going on since 1993 but is still relatively unknown. Join the walk in New York City, Washington DC, and many other cities (Thursday and Saturday, check the website) to raise awareness of the water crisis in other countries. This event symbolizes the 3-6 mile walk women and children of water-stressed countries have to make daily, taking away time spent in school or earning money.

Friday
The Sony Ericsson Tennis Open in Miami features 96 top men and women players in a 12-day event. Ranked #1 is Maria Sharapova and she is the pinup girl of the tour. Ranked #6 is Martina Hingas…”can she come back?” And the highest ranked American is Serena Williams, #15, coming back after knee problems. If you can’t get there directly, you can catch the final matches live on ESPN.

Saturday
If you’re still in New York after World Water Day, head over the bridge to Queens and see The Fashion in Film Festival as it explores the close relationship between film and fashion. (Did the title give it away or us?) Partnered with the Museum of the Moving Image (MoMI) in Queens, NY, this series was quite the success in London last year. This is the last weekend to catch it so go, go, go!

Sunday
If you don’t have a wedding to plan, maybe your spring thoughts turn to the garden. Whether you have a patio or full-fledged acreage, full sun or part shade, don’t miss the last day of the San Francisco Flower and Garden Show. With free seminars, four acres of gardens to admire and shopping at 300 exhibits, you’ll hardly be able to wait until next weekend to get your gardening gloves on.

Renkoo helps you make plans with friends.
