Dec.1: San Francisco Gay Men's Chorus Performs "SantaConcert" at the Center for Spiritual Living

Posted By on Wed, Nov 28, 2012 at 12:03 PM

In my humble opinion, you can truly never have too many gay Santas in one place. So how great is it that the San Francisco Gay Men’s Chorus bring their “SantaConcert,” a choral performance by 250 gay Santas, to Santa Rosa on Dec. 1? The performance benefits Face to Face, the Sonoma County AIDS network, and falls on World AIDS Day, but we all know the real draw. That’s right: the 250 gay Santas. It’s a night that promises to be fun, festive and full of glee, and we can only hope for a repeat of last year’s mid-show can-can dancing elves. The San Francisco Gay Men’s Chorus performs for the holidays on Saturday, Dec. 1, at the Center for Spiritual Living. 2075 Occidental Road, Santa Rosa. 7:30pm. $25—$35. 707.544.1581.

Dec 25: Chinese Food and a Movie at Congregation Ner Shalom

Posted By on Wed, Dec 21, 2011 at 11:51 AM

While everyone else gathers beneath Christmas trees and exchanges presents, you know the old line about how Jews spend Dec. 25: with Chinese food and a movie. Congregation Ner Shalom is just bright enough to turn this annual, somewhat dreary routine into a special event with Chinese Food and a Movie, benefiting the Jewish Community Free Clinic. Including havdalah, dinner and a screening of Danny Boyle’s Millions, the night is a perfect way to gather for those who usually hit up the not-so-great Chinese buffet in town—or who just want to check out the old Cotati Cabaret building. It’s all kosher on Sunday, Dec. 25, at Congregation Ner Shalom, 85 La Plaza, Cotati. 3—7pm. $5—$25. 707.664.8622.
