.Lion Dance, Evening Glass and LumaCon


Lunar Lions

The fortnight of Lunar New Year approaches, bringing in the Year of the Dragon. Marin County Asian Community Alliance celebrates the turning back of the Earth in her orbit with a performance of the traditional Lion Dance. Similar to the perhaps more familiar dragon dances famous in San Francisco’s Chinatown, the Lion Dance manifests good luck, prosperity and health for the new year. The ornately constructed, multi-person lion and vibrant costumes offer the perfect start to an auspicious year. Gung hay fat choy! 3pm, Saturday, Feb. 10 at Pho Sonoma Vietnamese Cuisine, Petaluma Downtown Theatre Square, 140 Second St., Ste. 120, Petaluma. Family and children friendly event. No purchase required.


Smooth As Glass

Evening Glass is a local four-piece rock outfit which, in the words of the Bohemian, “carves along the edge of surf and noise, all at the pace of the sun setting slowly off the edge of the continent until the rush of the horizon accelerates to meet it.” Truly, audiences of the band swoon to the downtempo rock rooted in the noise and surf-revival sounds of the ’90s. And as those with teens will know, the ’90s are back. Last Pleasure and Evening Glass, 7:30pm, Saturday, Feb. 3 at the Napa Valley Distillery’s Hollywood Room, 2485 Stockton St., Napa. 21+. $10 cover.


Art Geeks Unite!

Those seeking a celebration of creativity and fandom may look no further than the annual LumaCon. This event is a free comic convention for youth and families and so much more. Dive into bins of back issues from Sonoma County comic stores, peruse drawing and artwork by local artists of all ages and see intricate costumes of favorite characters from every universe known to humankind, and beyond. Dang, even wear a cosplay fit. LARPing, drawing and crafts, and plenty of activities full of joy, all courtesy of the public and school librarians of Sonoma County. 10am to 4pm, Saturday, Feb. 3. Petaluma Community Center, 320 N McDowell Blvd., Petaluma. Free.


Not Ready for Some Football?

“For those looking for an alternative to wings, guac, chips, cheering, cursing and half-time shows,” the Petite Left Bank will be hosting an Anti-Super Bowl Party on game day. Get re-civilized with a Mimosa Bottle Service and All Day Happy Hour. The restaurant invites Super Bowl detractors to “revel in an atmosphere of tranquility while savoring our delectable menu additions featuring caviar chips and dip, grilled oysters, duck confit croquettes and indulgent short rib poutine.” Now that will make one want to get up and cheer. 11am to 8pm, Sunday, Feb. 11. Petit Left Bank, 1696 Tiburon Ave., Tiburon.
