National Day of Unplugging in Petaluma

Petaluma UnPlugged: Aqus Cafe (189 H St., Petaluma) is hosting Petaluma UnPlugged 2013 this weekend, which coincides with the National Day of Unplugging this Friday and Saturday.

It is a many-faceted event that both suggests and provides dozens of activities for families and individuals, none of which have anything to do with electronics and all of which encourage a slower pace away from screens and devices.

Highlights include a family drumming circle at Cinnabar Theater on Friday, a Spring Art Show at the Petaluma Library, boating on the river and kite flying on Sunday, a hike at Tolay Lake and so much more, including live music, musical meditation, yoga, pilates and author talks.

If you can't figure out what to do, Aqus Cafe will have a 5 Cent Advice Booth on Friday from noon to 2 p.m. where you can chat with slow-life advisers.

Piranha Feed: No worries, this is not a feeding frenzy, just a crab feed and one of the season's last. It is a benefit for Piranha Swimming, a non-profit youth swim team based in Rohnert Park.

It takes place this Saturday evening at the Rohnert Park Community Center (5401 Snyder Lane), with a no-host bar from 6 to 7 p.m. and an all-you-can eat dinner of crab, pasta, salad and garlic bread from 7 to 10 p.m.

Tickets are $45 in advance at piranhaswimming.com and will be $60 at the door, if any remain.

For tickets, stop by Endless Summer Salon (1782A East Cotati Ave., Rohnert Park), call 524-4363 or visit piranhaswimming.com.

Montgomery High Polenta Feed: On March 9, a week from this Saturday, the Montgomery High School Alumni Foundation is hosting an all-you-can-eat polenta feed, featuring appetizers, polenta with sauce, green salad, breads and dessert, along with a no-host bar and both silent and live auctions.
