New Addition for Sonoma Mountain Ridge Trail

Posted By on Thu, Sep 26, 2013 at 11:44 AM

Hikers rejoice—the addition of new open space and trails for 2013 isn’t over yet. The Sonoma County Agricultural Preservation and Open Space District announced today the addition of 1.3 miles of trail to the Sonoma Mountain Ridge Trail, making it accessible from Jack London State Park. The trail will likely be open by late spring or early summer, 2014, says Sheri Emerson of the Open Space District.

The new trail will be about seven miles northwest of Sonoma and features beautiful views of the valley. It will likely be maintained by the nonprofit Valley of the Moon Natural History Association, which also operates Jack London State Park.

Second Dave Chappelle Show Added; Tickets on Sale Wednesday

Posted By on Tue, Sep 24, 2013 at 3:12 PM

After their 7pm show with Dave Chappelle sold out quickly, the Wells Fargo Center has scored a second show with the fan-favorite comedian. The second show follows the first one on the same date, Oct. 13, at 10pm. (No word on how long he'll go—in comedy clubs in SF, he's known to sometimes perform until 4am, which I'm guessing is way past the WFC ushers' bedtimes.)

Tickets go on sale Wednesday, Sept. 25 at noon. Click right here.

No Way, Dave Chappelle Is Playing the Wells Fargo Center

Tickets go on sale Saturday, Sept. 21, at noon

Posted By on Fri, Sep 20, 2013 at 11:59 AM

Chappelle at Outside Lands
Believe it or not, Santa Rosa: Dave Chappelle is coming to town to play the Wells Fargo Center on Oct. 13.

Tickets to see the comedian, who went into semi-reclusion after turning down a reported $55 million offer to continue The Dave Chappelle Show, go on sale tomorrow, Sept. 21, at noon. All tickets are $55.

In the past couple years, Chappelle has made infrequent appearances at small clubs like the Independent and the New Parish in San Francisco and Oakland, with tickets usually going on sale the same day and selling out instantly. (You might also recall that last month, he shut down a heckling Hartford, CT crowd.)

Needless to say, this show will sell out very quickly.

Get your tickets here on Saturday at noon.

New Museum Space Getting a Makeover

The Sonoma County Museum is putting its new building to good use. The former Conklin Brothers floor coverings store on the corner of Seventh and B streets in Santa Rosa is getting a makeover by three artists before it’s renovated into an art museum. Julia Davis, Carlos de Villasante and Judy Kennedy are painting the three sides of the building in graffiti style and should be finished by the end of this month, says Sonoma County Museum Executive Director Diane Evans. The paintings will remain in place through this year before they're replaced with another vision in similar style by different artists early next year.

The museum will eventually host exhibitions of international caliber in addition to selections from the museum’s existing collection, which includes an extensive group of work by Christo and Jeanne Claude. But while we wait, the museum has decided to show off the talent of local artists in a very public place.

Here is the Coddingtown Sign On the Back of a Truck

Posted By on Wed, Sep 11, 2013 at 12:55 PM

Here's something you don't see every day, courtesy quick-thinking Bohemian reader Brian Keegan: The world-famous Coddingtown sign on the back of a truck, rolling down College Avenue.

Sentimental Santa Rosans need not worry—the sign is only temporarily down for repairs, and will be up again in about a month, spinning away.
