It's All Happening: Events

I love living in Sacramento. There is always plenty to do and see.

Here are my event picks for the week:
  • Festa Della Donna, Hot Italian, March 8th, 5-8 p.m.: I have a hard time passing up complimentary pizza tastings, especially at my favorite pizza joint; and pizza in celebration of womanhood! How could it get any better?
    • "Festa Della Donna (Women’s Day) has its roots in an event that took place outside of Italy. On March 8, 1857 a strike by garment workers in New York, led to the formation of the first women's union in the United States. In 1945 the Union of Italian Women declared that this special date, March 8, should be set aside to celebrate womanhood across the country." - I have a soft spot in my heart for the Ladies Garment Worker Union, when I see the tag on clothes in thrift stores my heart gets excited and I usually buy the item. 

  •  Bikes + Gear Pop-Up Shop Launch Party, Hot Italian, March 12, 6-9 p.m. - Yet another awesome, impossible to miss event at Hot Italian.
    • "Meet Rob Forbes, founder of Design Within Reach, and creator of PUBLIC Bikes and Mark Dwight, founder of Rickshaw Bags, as they launch their new pop-up shop in Sacramento. Both California companies celebrate urban bike culture and design."
Here's a sneak peak of Rickshaw's Hot Italian messenger bag.
 On top of those great events, Saturday is Sacramento's big monthly art walks, "Second Saturday," so there will be lots of great art exhibits to check out.

I LOVE this idea! I often miss all the hubub around Sacramento, it is so hard to keep up with it! Then I miss out on great events. Keep this post of events up!!
PS: I would love to go to Hot Italian with you, but my stupid ex got a stupid job there so I can't have their delicious truffle oil pizza anymore. :(
Downside to Sacramento? Too small.

Oooh that's a shame - you can't get all dressed up fabulous and have an amazing time and ignore him completely? That would show him!
Yeah, if ever you want to attend any of these awesome events with me let me know. I all too often go alone. :(

I wish I would have seen this event for Hot Italian before today, I would have loved to go! I am definitely going to put St. Patty's on my calendar though. Are you going to the blogger meet-up at Shady Lady tomorrow night? I would love to meet some of you amazing girls!
