Hello April

Waking up to sunny skies and windy weather.
Feels like spring.
Palm Trees in Sacramento
On Tax Day, some liquid relief from those tax forms: Tres Agaves is opening a new location in Roseville on that day. Yum! After paying Uncle Same, a Tequila flight may help!

Later this month, I’m also looking forward to the live broadcast of “This American Life.” Capital Public Radio carries the Chicago-based show on Saturdays. Each week, the show produces some amazing stories revolving around one theme. Those stories always hit a nerve. They’re often funny, sad, insightful and deeply personal.

So…on April 23:

Ira Glass will host an actual episode of the radio program, performed onstage by some of our favorite contributors. Dan Savage, Starlee Kine, and Mike Birbiglia will tell stories. David Rakoff and Dave Hill will conduct a ‘special investigation.’ Plus a new cartoon by Chris Ware, additional visuals by Arthur Jones, and a very special appearance by Joss Whedon, creator of Buffy the Vampire Slayer! The performance will last around two hours. We’re going to capture the whole thing with a bunch of HD cameras, and send it live* to movie theatres all over the country.

Sacramento will have several theaters carrying the live broadcast:

  • Natomas Marketplace
  • Sacramento Downtown Plaza 7
  • Sacramento Greenback Lane 16
  • Sacramento Stadium 14

Tune in!
