Ticketed Event – Now Closed

Do you enjoy craft beer with friends? Do you enjoy a good book and a little exercise? Then this event is for you!! The Sacramento Brew Bike tour will take you to local pubs where you will enjoy a pint (or more, but that’s on you) and a book talk with a local librarian who will pair the book to the brew. Depending on the number of people that sign up, this will either be a 2 hour or 3 hour experience rain or shine.

Here’s what you will get:

  • The experience of “cycling” with your 15 new friends (per bike) around Midtown Sacramento
    (there’s a seat for those who choose not to pedal).
  • One pint of beer at each pub visited (a total of 3).
  • Book Talks with a Librarian at each site.
  • All tips are included in the price.

Who doesn’t love an evening at the Theatre?! Join us for a wonderful evening at Sacramento Theatre Company’s production;

I Ought to be in Pictures
By Neil Simon
Directed by Bill Zarriello
November 2 – December 11, 2016
Pollock Stage

This three-character dramedy involves Herbert Tucker, a struggling screenwriter who abandoned his New York family 16 years earlier. His daughter, Libby, arrives at the West Hollywood home of her father, whom she barely remembers. She is convinced that he can give her the Hollywood acting career she desires. Filled with guilt and demanding love, Libby not only forces Herb to deal with the responsibilities of parenthood, but to come to terms with his relationship with girlfriend, Steffy.
The STC, a long-time partner with the Sacramento Public Library is eager to welcome Library staff from all over the state. The performance features a pre-show where elements of the production are discussed that enhance the understanding of the performance and the play. The Theatre is located on H and 15th, an easy 3 block walk or brief Uber ride from the Conference Center.
