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.
- Old Sacramento's Saint Patrick's Day Parade, March 12th, 1 p.m. from 2nd & L Streets.
- 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.
