CHEAP THRILLS

 

Rachel Valley

 

BEST WAY TO GET CAFFEINATED
Long known for art studio tours and gallery shows, Second Saturday in Sacramento now also will be known for the COFFEE BIKE TOUR, hosted by Broadacre Coffee. Started in January of this year, the tour was brewed up by Broadacre co-founders Justin Kerr and Leyland Elia as a way to support like-minded coffeehouses in the area. "We wanted to have time with our customers to share our passion for Sacramento's coffee scene," says Elia. Every month is a little different, but stops often include local favorites such as Insight Coffee, Chocolate Fish, Temple, Old Soul and Naked Coffee. Reservations are not required for this free event: Just show up at Broadacre's 10th Street location at 10 a.m. every second Saturday with your bike and a thirst for some java. 1014 10th St.

YOUR MOVES
Thanks to The Ballroom on Folsom Boulevard, no one's putting Baby in a corner any more. For more than 11 years, The Ballroom has offered dance camps as a way of introducing people to dancing without long-term commitments. Held three times a year on a Sunday, each DOLLAR DAZE DANCE CAMP features four different dance classes over the course of four hours— and it only costs a buck. Dances at the daylong camp range from salsa and merengue to East Coast swing and the waltz. No partner? No problem. Manager Linda Infante says camps average close to 200 people per session, with single attendees accounting for nearly 75 percent, so you won't be a wallflower for long, if at all. 6009 Folsom Blvd.; (916) 456-2616; theballroomofsacramento.com

BEST DAY TO GET CULTURED
On the first Saturday in February for nearly 15 years now, MUSEUM DAY has gotten Sacramentans out of their houses and into the streets to visit 28 area museums at little to no cost. Coordinated by Sacramento Association of Museums, the event aims to showcase what the region has to offer. "We have wonderful culture, wildlife, art and history right in our own backyard," says Museum Day coordinator Delta Pick Mello. Participating museums include heavy hitters such as the Crocker and the California State Railroad Museum, as well as more obscure places such as the Museum of Medical History in East Sacramento. The best part? It's not just downtown: You can visit participating museums in Rancho Cordova, Folsom, Roseville and Woodland. sacmuseums.org/museumday

BEST EXCUSE TO GET UP ON THE WEEKEND
Every Saturday morning, Gina Garcia Di Fiore leads YOGA IN THE PARK, a free outdoor yoga class in East Sac's McKinley Park. A certified yoga instructor, she routinely attracts more than 200 people with her vinyasa class geared to students of all levels. (Attendees are as young as 3.) The 75-minute class meets at 9 a.m. behind the rose garden from April through September. In winter, it moves indoors to the park's Clunie Community Center. Why free? "Everyone should have access to yoga," says Garcia Di Fiore, who started a nonprofit called Yoga Across America to replicate her program around the country. facebook.com/yogaacrossamerica
