2nd Saturday Roadmap: Sacramento Loves Art

Do you love art as much as I do? Prove it during this weekend of love by taking in all that 2nd Saturday has to offer! There’s a lot to love this month, so bring your Valentine and take ’em on an artsy adventure they’ll never forget. 

Start the Journey:
I’ll start the day off with a trip to Rubicon Brewing Company for a couple appetizers and a pint of their First Contact pale ale. After fueling up for the day, I’ll be making my first gallery stop of the day at the Axis Gallery. Its newest exhibit, titled Uncontrollable Beauty: An Odyssey – What We Need Is Always With Us, admittedly intrigued me because of its crazy long title, but after looking at some of Cheselyn Amato’s work, I’m extremely excited to see what the artist has sewn up.

A Lifetime’s Collection:
After scratching my brain at Axis, I’ll be popping over to Pour House for some brunch and a St Louis Gueuze sour. This quick meal will be followed by a stop to Elliot Fouts Gallery’s The Ed Goldman Collection show. This eclectic exhibit  features works collected by Ed Goldman, an author and daily columnist for the Sacramento Business Journal.

Big Screen, Short Stories:
If you are a movie snob like me then you’re probably pretty excited for the Oscars, happening at the end of this month. I’ve seen all of the nominated full-length feature films but missed out on most of the shorts. The Crest Theatre is giving Sacramentans the chance to see the five nominees for the live-action short Oscar. After getting film schooled, I’ll be digging into Mother‘s vegetarian treats.

Crafty Motel:
I’ll be making a pit stop at Frank Fats for one last meal (Fats special wok-fried spareribs and sang gai shee chow mein, please!) to prepare for my last stop at Art Hotel 916. This abandoned hotel has been filled to the gills with works from 30 artists who poured their talent into this one building that will soon be demolished. This building is being given a new life (albeit, a short one), and you do not want to miss the chance to experience it. This 2nd Saturday is the last day you will be able to check out the Art Hotel, so you must go! Note: While there will be a line, the experience is well worth it.
