Mouthful: Spanish food and flamenco dance in Santa Rosa

  • sol flamenco SR

<b>Flamenco Friday:</b> This Friday, April 18, the Arlene Francis Center (99 Sixth St., Santa Rosa) hosts a lively fete, Flamenco Friday. Doors open at 6:30 p.m., when you can enjoy tapas, paella and sangria for $25 (kids under 12 are admitted free).

The show starts at 8 p.m.; admission, should you not want dinner, is $17.

The performance by Sol Flamenco features dancers Joelle Goncalves and Hilit Maniv and guitarists Geoff Hawkins and Mark Taylor. The group has performed together throughout the Bay Area for years and is widely praised for its passion and precision. You can check them out at solflamenco.com.

Tickets are available at the door the night of the show.

The performance is a joint production by Sol Flamenco Dance Troupe and 100 Thousand Poets for Change.

<b>Easter at our Farmers Markets:</b> Although farmers markets typically close on major holidays like Christmas Day and New Year's Day, most are open for business on Easter Sunday.

The West End Farmers Market, open from 10 a.m. to 2 p.m., will raffle off two big beautiful baskets featuring a bounty of goods from market vendors, including handmade soap and body butters, flowers, bread, honey, sausages, eggs and spring produce.

Kids can search for Easter eggs hidden at vendor stalls and there will be holiday surprises, too. T-Luke and the Tight Suits provide live music throughout the market.

You can enjoy breakfast or lunch — or hang out and enjoy both — from Goodman's Jewish Deli, Happy Jack's Taco Co. and Starting From Scratch.
