It’s a fact: we’re all gonna have to go some time. The thing is, our loved ones have to grapple with our absence. Enter the Death Cafe
, an unconventional take on the idea of a support group for those wrestling with the loss of a loved one. As noted in an April 2013 Bohemian feature, participants in the Death Cafe laugh a lot more than they cry, and the whole meeting serves to break the weirdly uncomfortable relationship humans have with something that’s so normal, it’s 100 percent guaranteed. Tea, cake and stories of shuffling off abound when Karen Garber hosts on Wednesday, Jan. 8, at the Sunflower Center. 1435 N. McDowell Blvd., Petaluma. 7pm. Free. 707.792.5300.
