Recap of the Week: What We Shared With You
Our goal of this blog is to share as much as possible about what's happening in Burlingame and its surrounding communities for real estate, events, and news. This week we’ve posted articles about everything from Revocable Living Trusts to the Children’s Holiday Tea at the Burlingame Library.
If you missed the Children’s Holiday Tea, don’t worry; there is still time to get your tickets for the Library’s Holiday Puppet Show on December 17th. The North Pole Review features Russian Dancers, the ice skater Crystal Chandelier and acrobatic penguins. There are two shows (11 am and 1 pm) and the show is free, but space is limited so tickets are required. Pick up your free tickets at the Children’s Desk starting on Thursday, December 15th.
The Great Dickens Christmas Fair & Victorian Holiday Party runs through December 18th at the Cow Palace in Daly City, and you definitely don’t want to miss it. Be transported back to Victorian London and enjoy the carolers, dancers, shops and special shows. Order your tickets here.
We also wrote about After Hours at the California Academy of Science, which has entertainment for the 21+ crowd amid the exhibits and aquarium displays. On December 15th you can experience Bazaar Bizarre Nightlife, where you can buy your last minute gifts, all hand-crafted by independent artists and craftspeople. The Academy of Science is located in Golden Gate Park in San Francisco.
Ongoing events include Otter and Bobcat feeding at CurioOdyssey at Coyote Point and the full roster of events at the Burlingame Recreation Center. (Where else can you find art, dance, yoga and zumba classes, after school enrichment programs and find out how to raise backyard chickens?)
On a more serious side, Terri Neil, Principal and Director of Client Services for Senior Assist of the Peninsula provided some tips to help lower the risk of your parents or grandparents falling. With so many families now living in intergenerational homes, this is vital information for all family members.
Of course, let’s not forget Santa at the Hillsdale Shopping Center. Don’t forget to bring a clean jacket, coat or raincoat to the One Warm Coat Drive. Your donation will help those in need around the community and will allow those families to get outside and enjoy all that the holidays have to offer.
Are you working on your Bucket List for 2011? We’ve been doing the research for you, and have found some interesting and unusual activities you might want to try. How about Indoor Skydiving at iFly in Union City? Maybe you want to try Kayaking or bringing your “act” to the stage. If you’re into more earthbound sports, what about joining a book club at Books, Inc.?
