.Deviled Eggs, Blooming Art, Tall Ships, and Jazz Flicks


Devilishly Egg-citing

They say the devil is in the details—now he’s also in the eggs, thanks to the 2nd Annual Great Petaluma Deviled Egg Competition, hosted by Petaluma’s Barber Cellars and Barber Lee Spirits. The competition begins at 11am, Sunday, April 23, and will feature a panoply of deviled egg offerings in a range of categories, from amateur to professional levels. The public is invited to enjoy the eggs-travagant creations, and those interested in competing can sign up online at bit.ly/barber-eggs. The $25 registration fee, as well as all egg sale proceeds and a portion of drink and bottle sales, will be donated to Petaluma People Services Center, which is dedicated to the social and economic health of the Petaluma community, by providing programs that strengthen the dignity and self-sufficiency of the individual.

Tall Ships

The term “tall ship” might seem self-explanatory, but as with anything, there are a near infinite amount of nuances to appreciate. Consider that Tall Ships are traditionally-rigged sailing vessels, you know, like topsail schooners, brigantines, brigs and barques. Interest piqued? If so, visit the third wave of “Call of the Sea” Tall Ships Celebration, which commences at 11am, Saturday, April 29 at the Bay Model Visitors Center, 2100 Bridgeway, Sausalito. The itinerary includes “interactive Sailing Science Center activities,” tours courtesy of Matthew Turner and music by the Waterfront Pickers. Food and beverages, as well as logo wear, available for purchase on-site. The event is a fundraiser for scholarships which provide life changing on the water experiences to underserved youth.

Winter’s Bloom

With the riot flower power coloring local hillsides, you’d think they’d call it a flora borealis.

Calistoga’s Sofie Contemporary Arts has a less pretentious name: “Winter’s Bloom,” which is an exhibit of sumptuously colored works by Bill Russell and Kerry Vander Meer, on view through May 29. “This show is exuberant and feels like a long exhale after a couple crazy years and a very long, cold winter,” observed Jan Sofie, the gallery’s director and recipient of the Bohemian’s award for “Best Art Gallery in Napa County” for the third consecutive year. “If you’re definitely ready to feel like you actually live in California again, you’ll be glad you joined us!” The gallery is open from noon to 6pm, Thursday through Sunday, at 1407 Lincoln Ave., Calistoga.
