Wings and pints at the seventh annual Raley Field Brewfest • June 7
Stay thirsty and be sure to come hungry because the seventh annual Raley Field Brewfest not only boats more than 60 beer venders at this year’s event, it’s also presented by Wing Stop. On Friday, June 7, starting at 7 p.m. the Raley Field outfield will transform into an all out smorgasbord with vendors laid out in a quarter-mile semi-circle, plus a stage set up near second base. Breweries include everything from Trumer Brauerei to Track 7 Brewing Co., and even featured ciders range from the Ace Cider and Fox Barrel Cider companies. Tickets start at $30 in advance or $35 the day of the event, yet there’s always VIP. For just $50, VIP ballers, or ticket holders, will receive 18 tastings instead of the 10 offered and allowed an hour early entrance. Whatever package fits the budget, visit Raleyfield.com for tickets or simply stop by the box office. Bottoms up.
Up on history with a good ol’ fashioned train robbery in the Sacramento River Train • June 1
Face it. None of us are old enough to remember how it was livin’ in the Old West. Yet, friends and families can touch up on a bit of history right in our own backyard in West Sacramento. The Sacramento River Train’s “Great Train Robbery” departs on Saturday, June 1 at 10 a.m. taking people on an ol’ fashioned train ride through time. This three-and-a-half hour trip includes going by the Fremont Trestle and through the pretty countryside, but while riding along, watch out for outlaws hiding along the tracks. (I’m sure the marshall aboard will keep things Kosher.) The ride ends with passengers enjoying a Western-style barbecue lunch down by the river.

Stacks of music with The Staxx Brothers June 14
Soul/rock group The Staxx Brothers return to Sacramento and this time they’re performing with local funk band Phat Butta Jam.
