For a typical day trip to Nevada County, a tourist might visit a few wineries, do some window shopping and then call it a day. But when Robert X Trent launched Outlandish Experiences in August, he wanted to use unique, unforgettable experiences to help visitors fall in love with the area he’s called home for 20 years.
It was a cold and breezy Thanksgiving Day, as I joined hundreds of others in their shorts and tanks or jackets and hoodies. We were all ready, in one fashion or another, to start the race for Courage House’s Turkey Trot in Elk Grove. The funds raised from the event would be put towards homing children rescued from sex trafficking. The course took us along some of Elk Grove’s busy streets and ended back at the business complex were we started. Each participant was given a medallion upon completion of the race.
Last weekend I had the opportunity to attend a sneak peek pre-opening event of the new Localis Restaurant, which will take the place of Trick Pony.
Last weekend I survived the She Rocks the Trail 25k trail run. Starting at the Auburn Dam Lookout and with an overall elevation change of 3,500 feet. It was tough to push through in the summer heat, but was well worth knowing that my efforts were benefiting Fit for Girls.
This past weekend my husband Scott and I were honored to officiate our first wedding. We tag-teamed the nuptials of our dear friends Chase Davis and former Sac Bee political reporter Torey Van Oot in Vermont over Memorial Day weekend.
For Memorial Day weekend I headed down to southern California to visit San Diego and Palm Springs. Between soaking in the sunshine and beautiful views from high-rise balconies, relaxing poolside and enjoying the delicious fare at local hot spots, I think it’s safe to say I had an amazing time.
Lodi celebrated local wineries and their number one varietal, Zinfandel, with the 11th annual three-day outdoor affair, ZinFest May 15-17.
I know how to do Sacramento weekends right — it’s sort of a point of pride.
The 19th Annual Komen Sacramento Race for the Cure was held on May 9 at Cal Expo. Thousands gathered to celebrate our community’s breast cancer survivors and pay tribute to those that lost their battles – raising funds and awareness and bringing us one step closer to a cure.
