One  of  the  things I love about living in  this area is that there is so much  to do. I  came  from  a  very  small, quiet  town on  the east coast  and now,sometimes there are too  many  choices.

Tonight, you could go to  the  local  silent film  Museum – where they  are  showing a  Talking Picture!

This Sunday in Niles you can hear a great , free concert and this time around there will be some fabulous food trucks including The Sweet Bakery and the fiveten burger .

This lecture on Monday at the library Looks interesting

for other ideas:

how about a link to  the local  theater  company Broadway West.

Fremont Coffee Roasting often has music.
Here is a link to some of the programs put on by East Bay regional parks
For more ideas look at the Tri City Voice .

Enjoy your city!
