Cirque Du Soleil
Expect a great show from Cirque Du Soleil as usual. Amazing visuals tied in with puppetry, stagecraft, athletic precision, and storytelling all scored to music.

With the Thanksgiving holiday weekend comes a lot of traveling to see family. We will also be traveling so there is no pick of the weekend this week.
Our only suggestion would be to go near the American River somewhere and see actual live Turkeys and thank them verbally for being so tasty.
Mountain Mandarin Festival
We are so lucky in the Sacramento Area to live so close to so much that is grown. Just up the hill around Penryn and Newcastle way is a little crop of tart sweetness that grows known as Mandarins. At our house we like to get a big box and decimate them as fast as we can. Peel and Eat. Repeat!
This weekend at the Auburn Fairgrounds is the foothills celebration of the mandarin in all its glory. Buy a box or a couple and eat by themselves, in a salad, or squeeze the juice out to include in a sauce.

Best of Sacramento Fundraiser
I enjoy perusing Sacramento magazine like most Sacramentogans and their basic black "Best of Sacramento" edition is sitting on store shelves. As part of the magazine pronouncing the best businesses and people in Sacramento is a big shindig and it is a fundraiser as well. Find out more Here.

The Best of Sacramento party is Saturday night at the Sacramento Convention Center as will share some money with Make A Wish. So if you're looking to get out and mingle and dare I say hobknob then this is the place. So buy your tickets already.
Downtown Sacramento Ice Rink
Let the tradition continue. The Downtown Sacramento Ice Rink is about to open for the holidays this Friday. So too is the one in Folsom but lets focus on Sacramento. Located at the door step of the Golden 1 Center is a great family experience or a great Sacramento date idea. Staying open till 8pm or 10pm on weekends the rink is also available for special events to rent. It's pretty crazy to think a mediteranean climate place like Sacramento can support this but it has on the Kay for over 20 years.
