Super DJ Benefit set to rock Saddle Rack

History will be made on Sunday, May 29 when All-Star Bay Area Celebrity DJs will unite with the Latin Legend Pete Escovedo to raise money for Make-A-Wish Greater Bay Area. The Super DJ Benefit is a club-style event that will take place at The Saddle Rack in Fremont. Attendees will not only get to enjoy the funky dance beats but will be greeted by The Food Truck Mafia, Rock Wall Wine Company, local artisans, and live and silent auctions.

This benefit is highly unique in that there has never been this much musical talent under one roof. The Bay Area airwaves are known for having some of the best DJs in the industry, and it is no surprise they are as passionate about rocking the airwaves and clubs as they are about giving back to the community. Radio pioneer Alex Mejia, one of the original KMEL All-Star DJs and event co-chair, described the DJ line-up as some of the Bay Areas greatest DJs, the elite of the elite who did not hesitate to step up for the benefit.

Sixty paintings depict Creeks and Rivers of Silicon Valley

Sixty paintings of 43 different creeks in the Santa Clara Valley will be on public display at the Milpitas Public Library through July 30. The paintings are the result of a one-year quest by internationally acclaimed artist Donald Neff to paint The Creeks and Rivers of Silicon Valley. Neffs quest has received international attention from major art magazines and other media. It has also garnered the attention of many local environmental, civic, and government entities.

Many dont realize that Silicon Valley used to be a lush agrarian region teeming with orchards, farms, ranches, and fruit packing plants. There are still a wonderful variety of little scenes below freeways, around back alleys, and behind fences hardly noticed in the rush of modern life. With an eye for these hidden treasures, Neff started the quest in November 2013 to paint a creek, river, or waterway of Santa Clara Valley once a week en plein air, that is, painted on location.

Burgers and beers celebrate California craft breweries

Sample some suds and chow down on burgers at the 2nd annual Burger and Brew Festival, to be held in downtown Fremont on Saturday, May 21. Hosted by the Fremont Chamber of Commerce, this day-long celebration of California craft breweries will feature a variety of brew, tasty food from local restaurants and food trucks, live music, and booths displaying art, crafts, and gourmet food products for sale. Local businesses and services will also be showcased.

Only in its second year, this new event will be building on the success of last year, which drew over 5,000 people. Says Fremont Chamber of Commerce CEO Cindy Bonior; Last year was a great year. We had well over what we had anticipated in attendance, and because of that we ran into some problems, like a shortage of beer for a little while! But we fixed that really quickly, and now this year were very prepared!

The festival is free to attend. But for those beer aficionados, $35 will get you a Tasting Package, which includes 10 tasting tickets and a five ounce souvenir glass. Single 12 ounce beers will also be available for purchase. Local breweries will include Das Brew, San Francisco Speakeasy, Mendocino Brewing Company, Golden Road Brewing, Hangar 24, Stone Brewing Co. and many more.
