Listening to live bands and drinking wine have become some of man's top recreational activities, just after contemplating infinity and napping in the fridge. Fill your ears with local cuisine and your mouth with local music with today's Groupon: for $39, you get one ticket (a $75 value online, or a $95 value at the door) to the Best of Sacramento Party hosted by Sacramento Magazine on Thursday, December 2, at the Sacramento Convention Center. The party begins at 4:30 p.m. You must pick up your ticket from the Sacramento Magazine office on Monday through Friday between October 13 and 22 from 9 a.m to 5 p.m. You must be age 21 or older to be admitted to the party.
The annual Best of Sacramento Party celebrates the winners of Sacramento Magazine's Best of Sacramento awards in eight categories, including dining, entertainment, sports and fitness, shopping, beauty, fun, media, and philanthropy. Regardless of the actual winners, you'll get to pick your own favorites as you wander the convention center and enjoy unlimited samples of around 150 of the area's top restaurants and wineries. Fifteen live music and dance performances are also scheduled, including local bands Hip Service and Mumbo Gumbo. You might even spot a few local celebrities, an endangered species that's rarely seen outside of federally protected preserves in the Los Angeles area.
All proceeds from the party will benefit The March of Dimes—a non-profit organization that works to prevent birth defects, premature birth, and infant mortality—for whom the Best of Sacramento Party has raised approximately $3.4 million over the past 11 years. Mix and mingle with your fellow citizens while supporting a good cause with today's Groupon to the Best of Sacramento Party.
