Friday

With all due respect: Take a hike! The days are long enough that you can squeeze in a walk after work in one of our neighborhood parks. Have you visited the new Trancas Crossing?

If you happened to enjoy the free music you should consider giving back to the artists at www.HumanFankind.com -- they worked hard to create that music, and should be rewarded :)

If you want to be inspired by our own local thespians, go see Vintage High's Hairspray running through March 3! I recently moved to Napa and have found so many wonderful things to do. But nothing has been more inspiring than watching 50 students perform at professional levels in this entertaining musical last night. As a high school and college theater major, I was so impressed with the talent on that stage! Go see it!
