Thursday Dec. 1st

El Concilio “Navidad in El Valle” Holiday Tamale Fundraiser at the Stockton Civic Auditorium Lunch: 11am-2pm Dinner: 5pm-8pm $10

Do you love fresh tamales like me but don’t feel like stalking random Hispanic-looking people in the Wal-Mart parking lot hoping they’ll offer to sell you tamales out of the trunk of their car like some sort of corn meal related drug deal? Then El Concilio’s got you covered with their annual tamale fundraiser. This year the proceeds will go towards food baskets for needy families in the area. $10 gets you two tamales, beans, and rice. They have to go meals but you can also head inside for the full event which features music, a raffle, pictures with Santa, and the Ballet Folkloricio Dancers. More information, including online ticket purchasing, is available at the El Concilio website.

Friday Dec. 2nd

Holiday Jazz Concert at the Yosemite Meat Market 7pm $10

If jazz and delicious food are your thing, you should head on down to the Yosemite Meat Market on Yosemite St Friday night for some holiday jazz music as perfomed by Wendi Maxwell and the Tres Hot Jazz Band.

209 Metal Showcase at the Plea for Peace Center 7pm $5

With the Christmas season in full swing the Haggin Museum gets in on the holiday fun on Sunday. Santa will be on hand for pictures with the kids as is usual for events like this.
