Any big (or small) events concerning Lindy hop in Central Valley?
I’ve heard there’s a dinner/dance at Eagle Field, which is WWII themed. I don’t remember many details, other than it’s on June 1. Perhaps some other Tumblr Hoppers in the area can fill in the gaps of my memory on this?
There’s a fly-in with a dinner/dance on June 1st, 2013, at Eagle Field in #Firebaugh, #CA. It sounds like a lovely event! Eagle Field has aircraft that dated back to WWII.
Here are the details Fresno Swing Dance (they teach weekly dance lessons) received from the event coordinator:
The ninth annual Fresno Film Festival, presented by Fresno Filmworks at the historic Tower Theatre, will feature seven exclusive programs of short and feature-length movies, including special filmmaker appearances, social gatherings, and Q&A discussions.
Visit Fresno Filmworks’ Web for this weekend’s schedule.
This is like no other event in Fresno. Jefferson Beavers, board member, introduced me to the organization. Thanks to him, my friend and I attended the viewing of Oscar-nominated shorts, back in March. It was an amazing event! And it was my first time at the Tower Theatre. It was an amazing opportunity!
Fresno Filmworks does a great introducing independent films to Fresno. This is something organizers felt was lacking in our culture.
Almost here! Three more weeks till they’re mature enough to harvest! /squeal

Free historic tours of the Fulton Mall by the Downtown Fresno Partnership.
I’m happy to see this back! I stumbled upon a tour, last summer. Although Fresno was sunny and hot, the Fulton Mall is packed with shade-trees and the weather is tolerable. I learned a lot about the historic buildings, the art, and the history of the Fulton Mall. We even took a tour of the Warnors Theatre; one of the most beautiful buildings in Fresno! You’ll find yourself thinking, “What? There’s actually cool stuff in Fresno?”
First Saturday of the month
Tour starts at Warnors Theatre (1432 Fulton St.)
“Look for the yellow umbrella!”

Modelo Light, a beer brewed in Mexico, is making its way to Fresno. In celebration, the beer company is partnering with CArtHop. For a limited time, local gourmet food trucks are incorporating Modelo Light into their dishes. You won’t get a side of a beer with your lunch - more like the light lager will be cooked into a special dish.
Where is CArtHop?
Tuesdays - Friant & First - 11am-2pm
Thursdays - Fulton Mall - 11am-2pm
Fridays - Eaton Plaza - 11am-2pm
EDIT: I’ve been misinformed. Modelo Light is not directly associated with CArtHop. You can get the drunken chicken at Casa de Tamales’ cart of restaurant. Still, check out CArtHop! :)
Fresno’s CArtHop, a movement supporting local produce, added two locations this week!
Tuesdays - River Park Area 10am-2pm
Saturdays - Downtown Fresno Ice Rink. 5pm-9pm.
I wrote a blog post about my experience at the Tuesday CArtHop, here. For the first time, someone made me feel like an f’in dirty hippie.

We close tomorrow. :(
Singin’ in the Rain production in Tower District, Fresno CA. Who went?
I’m not one watch local productions even though I make note to do so. >.< Some day…some day…
Fresno had its 93rd Annual Veterans Day Parade, yesterday. The parade is televised for military bases, across the world. 200 entries, 7,500 participants and 30,000-40,000 visitors makes Fresno’s parade the largest Veterans Day west of New York City!

Haven’t been to Downtown in a while
I purchased this handmade cloak/riding hood/cape/whatever at the Civil War Reenactment, in Fresno, last weekend.
It’s really that red.
Don’t be surprised if I wear this any ol’ day. It makes my day a little bit sassier.
Updating you all on downtown Fresno’s first ever ice rink.
It’ll be open in two weeks! (November 8th). I came across this information:
The rink is under construction and will open November 8 through January 13. Hours are 10am to 8pm, Sunday through Thursday, and 10am to 10pm on Friday and Saturday. The ticket price — $10 for adults, $8 for kids under 12 — includes skate rental and parking validation. All you have to do is show up at the rink, which is near the Clock Tower on Fulton Mall.
