Donald’s weekend picks

Besides thinking about what you’re going to do for New Year’s Eve

1. ‘ROCKY’ IS BACK
Frank ‘N’ Furter and all his pals just couldn’t keep away. There are four encore performances of “The Rocky Horror Show” remaining. Check out my various links about the show’s return on this Beehive post. [Details]

 

2. SEASONS OF LOVE
You can tell that people are excited about the production of “RENT” opening 8 p.m. today at the Tower Theatre — we had lots of interest in our ticket giveaway. This local production only runs for two performances. You can check out my advance interview with director S. Eric Day in Friday’s 7 section. [Details]

 

3. HMONG NEW YEAR
I went to this fascinating event a couple of years ago, and I highly recommend it. Bee writer Barbara Anderson gives you the rundown about the celebration, which continues 8 a.m.-4:30 p.m. through Jan. 1 at the fairgrounds. And check out Bee photographer Craig Kohlruss’ great photo gallery. [Details]

 

4. SEE ‘SOUL CALLING’
Hmong New Year is a great time to peruse Joel Pickford’s striking photo exhibition “Soul Calling: A Photographic Journey Through the Hmong Diaspora” at the Fresno Art Museum. Here’s my Beehive post from October. The exhibition closes Jan. 6. [Details]

 

5. GO ICE SKATING AT YOSEMITE
Now this is a cool ranking: The beloved Curry Village Ice Rink, established in 1928 in Yosemite National Park, was ranked this year by Travel + Leisure magazine as one of the “World’s Coolest Ice Skating Rinks.” The outdoor rink is located in the western part of Curry Village, nestled below Glacier Point and with impressive views of Half Dome. Daily skating sessions (subject to weather conditions) are offered from 3:30 to 6 p.m. and 7 to 9:30 p.m. weekdays. On weekends, the rink is open for additional sessions from 8:30 to 11 a.m. and from noon to 2:30 p.m. and 3:30. Skate rentals are available.
