Second Saturday Wrap up


second saturday 5

If you haven’t been to Second Saturday downtown, this mom highly recommends it. We took our 6-month old this weekend and did our best to arrive when it started (which really meant we got there 20 minutes later) so we could make the most of our time before it got to be too close to bed time.

The Second Saturday art walk has grown in popularity and has become a bustling marketplace of artists, vendors, photographers and singers. Our baby enjoyed the people-watching and I enjoyed the freebies! Simply Juice was there passing out samples of their raspberry lemonade (I’m sold) and Off was giving out individual packets of insect repellent.

I was surprised to see the variety of art offered along J Street but even more surprised when I saw displays of furniture (pictured above). I’ve been eyeing one of those white watering cans.

There was pizza for sale by the slice and restaurant specials at every turn. If you haven’t been to Plum Blossom, it is definitely worth stopping in if you’re hungry because the portions are really generous (their claim to fame is that they will deliver until 2AM– awesome!) Tapa the Worldwas packed to the brim, which isn’t uncommon for that place, and the scents wafting in the air were irresistible.

Second Saturday is (obviously) only once a month, but it is worth checking out and is an entertaining *FREE* family activity. If you go, or if you’ve been and have comments or suggestions please let us know! We’d love more feedback from other East Sac Moms.
