Renkoo Tip of the Week

Now you can tag Renkoo places with words that are meaningful to you. As a result, you’ll be able to find places more easily later when you search for them.

Wednesday is the new Thursday

Fun things to make plans to do this week… besides visiting Blondies Pizza, of course…

Wednesday
Toodle over to Escondido, CA and Follow the Paper Trail at the California Center for the Arts. This exhibit shows off printmaking’s many forms — lithography, monoprints, etchings, collographs and more. Get out your brayer and have a paper-iffic time!

Thursday
San Francisco’s MoMA is ending its run of Picasso and American Art on Memorial Day. This is a collection of almost 150 pieces of art by American artists next to Picasso’s work that served as their inspiration. If you can’t get to the museum, you can order their 400-page volume commemorating the exhibit for $65 in the MoMA online store.

Friday
National Tap Dance Day was dedicated almost 20 years ago and May 25th is the day. Chosen to honor Bill “Bojangles” Robinson’s birthday, you too can get your toes tapping and kick up a real appreciation for the art form. If you’re in the New York City area, don’t miss the 2007 Tap Extravaganza at the Fashion Institute of Technology.

Saturday
You have no excuse to sit at home today because there is something fun to do all over our fine country. There is so much to do that we couldn’t even choose just one event to highlight. Behind Door #1 we have Carnaval in San Francisco, behind Door #2 we have the Downtown Denver Arts Festival, and behind Door #3 we take you to Philly for Jam on the River.

Sunday
Geek out this Memorial Day weekend in Silicon Valley. We have four days and three events for everything science fiction, game playing and anime.
BayCon is where you SF geeks can gather at the San Mateo Marriott.

FanimeCon at the San Jose Convention Center is for anime geeks. Time for some cosplay!!
And KublaCon in Burlingame at the Hyatt is for the card, board, and role-playing gamers out there.

After all, BBQs and parades can be had anywhere.

Renkoo helps you make plans with friends.
