<strong>Jumpstart Creativity Tour</strong>

This event is more for the moms and dads (or even those who don't have kids), but cool enough that it deserves a mention. Wannabe artists and creationists are converging on My Friend Joe Cafe to make art, do creative writing, or just be inspired around other creative minds. The event is free, but a $3-$5 donation would be much appreciated. 1810 Mendocino Ave, Santa Rosa. <a href="http://www.eventbrite.com/event/3942766922" target="_blank">eventbrite.com</a>

Have a wonderful week, and I'll see you on the forums!
