March is National Women’s History month and we have much to celebrate!!

Today is International Women’s Day  so let’s get  the party started this weekend! On Friday, March 8th, grab some friends and head down to the popular Cucina Urbana (www.cucinaurbana.com) for some great food and wine. Today they are offering a portion of the proceeds to a local non-profit, Center for Community Solutions (www.ccssd.org). Or on Wednesday the 13th be a part of the International Women’s Day Breakfast (http://www.sandiego.edu/about/news_center/events/events_detail.php?_focus=44135) at USD.

Come Saturday experience something truly special and unique. The annual Cherry Blossom Festival at the Balboa Park Japanese Friendship Garden. The fun of this traditional Japanese celebration will be the cultural entertainment, street food, and activities for all ages. New to the festival will be access to the 9-acre Garden expansion and beer garden. A festival would not be complete without a nice cold one in hand!

Then end the weekend with one more international spectacle at the Copley Symphony Hall on Sunday. Dance Brazil (www.sandiegosymphony.org/calendar/view.aspx?id=3375) -an upbeat, vibrant, and acrobatic show of Afro-Brazilian movement.

If your pulse is not racing after all that maybe it is time for a getaway to Washington, D.C. and Virginia. The Smithsonian month long celebration of women and the National Women’s History Museum in Alexandria, VA are must to do on this trip.

What are you doing this month to celebrate women and the trails we have blazed?

 

Thanks to our new intern, Ed Groner, for these great ways to celebrate Women’s History Month!
