Alice and the Blue Angels, Wild Mushrooms for Secret Agents in the Shakori Hills

Wednesday is the new Thursday

Fun things to make plans to do this week…

Renkoo Tip of the Week

Just because Wednesday is the New Thursday is going to the archives now, doesn’t mean you should quit looking for fun things to do five days a week. We usually start with Upcoming and then we check out Time Out New York and Chicago, Go City Kids (which isn’t just for kids!) and the calendar sections of all the major U.S. papers. That’s just for starters! So keep on keeping the fun in your life.

I would like to thank everyone who read this newsletter for the past 75+ issues! My name is Jessica and you can always email me at Ciao tutti!


The Troubadour Theater Company has a mission to entertain always, educate sometimes and never take itself seriously. To that end, they bring you Alice in One-Hit Wonderland 2 at the Falcon Theatre in Burbank. This is a musical parody of Lewis Carroll’s famed story set to the “greatest one-hit-wonders of all time.” Hurry for tickets, the show ends in four days.


San Francisco hosts a grand celebration of the armed forces in its annual Fleet Week. The weekend will be chock-full of exciting events and demonstrations from the Navy, Marines and Coast Guard. This is fun for the whole family and your humble author will even be there on Sunday with her five-year-old son getting splashed and awed by the Blue Angels.


We’re heading to the Northwest’s Long Beach peninsula today for the Wild Mushroom Celebration which starts today and runs through November 15th. There will be tastings, dinners and discussions featuring the local varieties including the Prince and the Puffball. With names like those, how could this not be worth your time?


Let’s go hang out with Things To Do D.C. again. This time, they’re hosting a Secret Agent Day. They say the event is a day-long race for young professionals that is unique, athletic and fun but we are secretly hoping they will teach us to reach across the aisle without catching any germs as we head into the election, err, we mean cold & flu season. Okay all kidding aside, there will actually be teams formed to catch a spy on the loose and there will be clues, checkpoints and scavenging for items.


Our very last event takes us to North Carolina for the Shakori Hills Grassroots Festival. This party has been going on since Thursday and features more than 40 bands and performers. It is family friendly and they ask that you keep your booze in a cup or coozie so as not to set a bad example for the young ones. Camping is encouraged and there is a biodiesel shuttle to bring you to and from the event.

Renkoo helps you make plans with your friends.
