Solar Cooking Weekend

Red bean and lentil chilli Lately Sacramento has been a great place to use a solar oven. This weekend did not disappoint with the hot weather.

Pop Rocks enjoyed at the Palladio

  The band Pop Rocks was enjoyed by many at the Palladio on 7/19/2017. They have a huge amount of energy, color and engaged with the audience very well!

Hip Service in the Palladio!

The band Hip Service gave good service in the Palladio shopping center tonight! They drew one of the largest crowds this Summer so far.
