Around the Town: Festivals and Fairs!

If you didn't go to the State Fair last week - this might be the week for you. Friday, July 29 is California Wine Day at the State Fair - in my opinion the best day to go. You can tour the vineyard, see special cooking demos and art demos - and check out some of the award wining wines at the wine garden. 

In fact its also the day of the Taste and Celebrate the Best Wine! charity event - which is $25 not including fair admission. This is the even where they announce the best wines for 2011.

How about the Sacramento TomatoFest? Its at the Town & Country Village on July 30 and admission is free. Sample some tomato food (salsa, bruschetta, etc.) from some of the top restaurants in Sacramento. There is wine tasting here too if you are interested. Plus Tomato Gelato.... hum.

Not a festival / fair person? Ok - head on over to Fox and Goose at 7pm on Tuesday, July 26 for a Pub Quiz with former SF Giants pitcher Don Carrithers. All the questions will be sports related - but still sounds like a fun time!

And if you're just in need of something sweet this week - I recommend stopping by Ginger Elizabeth's on Saturday, June 30. Its Cupcake Day! I'll be getting a Peach Melba Cupcake. For sure.
