Found: Halloween Funtivities

Found: Halloween Funtivities

October is the best month of the year. I mean, how amazing is it when it’s 100 degrees one day, and a crisp 76 the next? It’s like Mother Nature finally let out a deep breath and the world sprung to life with golden leaves and bright blue skies and white fluffy clouds and a soft breeze … and yes, I love October.

But what makes this month particularly important is the celebration of the year’s best holiday: Halloween. I am a fiend for it. I spend the entire month trying to find scary books, watching scary movies – even ones like “The Others” and “The Sixth Sense” in which the ending makes up the whole point of the movie – and going places that embrace the Halloween spirit.

Here are some of my local(ish) suggestions to get into the holiday spirit in the Sacramento area... Read More

One Weekend, 500 animals, $20 Adoption Special!

 One Weekend, 500 animals, $20 Adoption Special!

The Bradshaw Animal Shelter again teams up for the Empty Our Shelters Project, October 17-19. For this one weekend, pet adoptions are just $20. A goal of adopting 500 animals to loving homes has been challenged for this intensive effort by Sacramento County, Yolo County, Sacramento SPCA, City of Sacramento and Happy Tails Pet Sanctuary.

Last year, our area shelters found 526 animals permanent homes in three days and were nationally recognized by the ASPCA. The County’s Bradshaw Animal Shelter stood out with the most adoptions – 179! With unending desire to help animals and a good dose of competitive spirit, the Bradshaw Shelter hopes the community will once again come together to be a part of something big by helping to end homelessness for shelter animals.

From the recent Farm to Fork week to Sacramento Beer Week to Bacon Fest, it is pretty obvious that the way to a Sacramentan’s heart is through our stomachs. Recently local coffee roasters teamed up to launch a week long tribute to our favorite morning beverage, and we could not be more excited.

Sacramento Specialty Coffee Week runs October 13-19 and will celebrate our communities enthusiasm for locally roasted specialty coffee. ... Read More
