Wednesday is the new Thursday
The Scottsdale, AZ Culinary Festival is going on all week, but tonight is the Best New Chef’s Dinner. It must be one of the first places in the country that’s warm enough for a food festival with a forecast of high 70s to low 80s; great food and a good time for all.
The Discovery Science Center in Santa Ana, CA is hosting its annual BubbleFest event. Make your own Mega Bubble and see international bubble superstar and world record holder Fan Yang. By the time you leave, you will have a Ph.D. in bubbles and be able to tell everyone about surface tension, elasticity, air pressure and the molecular properties of bubbles. See now? Your kid’s backyard bubble blowing is an educational activity after all.
The Merrie Monarch Festival is the world’s premiere hula festival held in Hilo, HI every year. The festival is named for King David Kalakaua, the Merrie Monarch, who was a patron of the arts during his reign in the 19th century. He restored the hula which had been forbidden by missionaries for 70 years. The ancient and modern group competitions, the heart of the festival, are today and tomorrow.
Washington’s huge wine fest, Taste Washington, is going on this weekend in Seattle. Tonight is 20something: $40 gets you in, some live music, some of Seattle’s best young chefs and a “20something” state of mind. Over 20? Never fear (or lie about your age) — just head over tomorrow for the grand tasting event with live jazz, wine (duh), and a coffee and dessert bar.
Okay all you Silicon Valley webheads, finally your families have something fun to do while you’re working in SF at Web 2.0. They’ll be down in Monterey at the Aquarium’s Día del Niño. Luckily there is free admission for kids under 12 and they might even make you a souvenir in the craft room. And all you’re going to bring them is a lousy beta copy of Firefox 3.
