Feb. 28: Moscow Circus at Lincoln Theater

Spring has edged its spritely nose around the corner, teasing all of us with its weekend weather and outdoor ambiance. I say we take it for all it’s worth. This Sunday, perhaps. How about driving the kids into Yountville? I know—you’re thinking, “It’s too fancy there.” But park at Ranch Market and pick up some cheap sandwiches. Ditch the car and walk down Washington, past the off ramp and onto California Drive. Stroll along the tree-lined promenade and ogle the golfers at the Vintners Golf Club course hooking their drives after not playing all winter. Find a bench, take in the fresh air and eat the sandwiches, and then keep walking up to the Veterans Home’s wonderful Lincoln Theater to get a great deal on the kids for the Moscow Circus, performing in the middle of the afternoon on Sunday, Feb. 28. Lincoln Theater, 100 California Drive, Yountville. 3pm. $29–$39; children 12 and under just $12. 707.944.1300.Gabe Meline
