Besides the reliable Every Friday, South First Fridays, and Friday Farmers’ Market, the Jubilee Wellness Festival and Lil’ Easy Backyard Party at Poor House Bistro will be downtown Saturday, a new live performance, “Coded,” opens up at City Lights Theatre Co. this weekend (Yay!), and Sunday is the annual Viva Calle event where six miles of streets are closed off to vehicles and opened up to bicyclists, runners, skateboarders and walkers.
These days, it’s best to stay in the present, but we can’t help but get excited about what’s to come in the near future: The Beyond Van Gogh Exhibit (opens Sept. 24); Sharks games at SAP Center with audiences (pre-season begins Sept. 28); The Great Leap at The Stage (Yay, too!, Sept. 29); Spartans home games at CEFCU Stadium (Oct. 2); three weeks of Hamilton (starting Oct. 12) at Broadway San Jose; and the return of the Sonic Runway.
It’s great to see and feel the energy of DTSJ on the weekends. With performances, games and exhibits occurring mid-week -- and the continued migration of our office workers back to their offices -- we may soon see business picking up on Tuesday, Wednesday and Thursday as well.
