2011 Cactus and Succulent Society Show and Sale

Get ready folks, one of the BEST events of the year is this weekend: the annual Sacramento Cactus and Succulent Society’s show and sale! I profiled the club last year (here) and have been a fan for literally decades- my folks were the oddballs in the neighborhood with a yard full of cactus when everyone else had a plain old lawn. This year’s event (the 51st!) will take place on May 7th and 8th, and will be held, as always, at the Shepard Garden Arts Center in McKinley Park. Don’t miss….


This is probably the tenth time we’ve shilled a Neil Hamburger show, but what can we say- we’re shameless fans.  Hamburger, for the uninitiated, is the world’s funniest unfunny comedian. His schtick, if you can call it that, consists of coughing, sweating, complaining, and telling epic-poem-length non-jokes about subjects like the Red Hot Chili Peppers’ lack of talent.  If that doesn’t sell you, I don’t know what will.  Neil will be performing with The Kenny “K-Strass” Strasser Yo-Yo Extravaganza and Major Entertainer Mike H.
