Overall, we have enjoyed a milder summer here in Los Gatos this year.  We didn’t have quite so many days that broke a hundred degrees.  Just as well, since there were more “staycations” here too!

As the summer begins edging toward fall, perhaps you’re not feeling relaxed and energiezed – maybe you’ve been all work, no play.  But even if you’re not going on a trip, you can still indulge in a little local R & R, and much of it’s at no cost. Need a couple of ideas? 

Music, music everywhere:

As you know, we have free music in Los Gatos:

Music in the Park 8/23/2009 5-7 pm Led Zepagain  
Jazz on the Plazz 8/26/2009 6:30 – 8:30 pm Cleo Laine & John Dankworth  
Music in the Park 8/30/2009 5-7 pm Journey Unauthorized

San Jose State also has a great, free music concert series called the Summer Pops Music Series that just began on Aug 22nd and the San Jose Music in the Park has one more event left. Please visit the San Jose Metblogs page for the schedule (which includes both) – there are four more to come, including one later today)

Are you “music’d out”?  Need something else to do?  Few more ideas:

  • Testarossa’s Wine & Cheese Weekend is happening now!  Today from noon to four pm, visit the Testarossa tasting room and for $10 per person, sample five cheeses along with their delicious wines.  (Also note Sept 6th, “Music on the Patio”. See site for more info.)
  • Los Gatos enjoys two museums (one art, one history) plus a museum gallery.  Events and museum access are low cost to free – please see the museums’ events page online for details
  • For a list of more venues, from the RIngling Brothers Circus to Mountain Winery events, please visit the Merc’s events page online – loads of local events in San Jose, Saratoga, Campbell and all over Silicon Valley

Got a favorite local event?  Feel free to post it in a comment below. Although normally I delete “ads” that seem like spam, this time I’ll make an exception – feel free to promote YOUR favorite local South Bay event here on Live in Los Gatos!
