Marian’s Notes  – Do you use Safeway Delivery?

I am in a contest for my affiliate links with Safeway.  If you have your groceries delivered from Safeway, I’d appreciate it if you could use this link.

Thanks again, Marian
Heads up, next week’s contest is for tickets to Great America!
Candytopia Opens in San Francisco

(Dai Sugano/Bay Area News Group)
Candytopia is an outrageously interactive candy wonderland that transports guests to an imaginative confectionary world with a one-of-a-kind full sensory experiences-you can expect larger-than-life installations inspired by pure, sugary bliss throughout Candytopia’s dozen unique rooms, along with candy samples and lots of fun surprises.
 

Candytopia celebrates the vibrant colors and flavors of our favorite sugary delights across over a dozen environments, from flying unicorn pigs to a marshmallow tsunami. Bring your family, your friends, and your sweet tooth for an experience like none other!

Candytopia is open now until November 30 in San Francisco, just off the Powell Street Bart Station. Tickets are $26 -$34.  More info and tickets.

 
Marian’s Note:  Candytopia will be here for Fall Break for San Jose and Thanksgiving Break!

 Student Matinees & Student Groups Performances at Berkeley Rep

Student Matinees at Berkeley Rep
For only $10 per student, middle and high school students can attend theatre with their classes as part of the Student Matinee Series-plus, a complimentary chaperone ticket is included with every 10 student tickets purchased. Performances listed as student matinees are reserved exclusively for student groups and include post-show Q&A sessions with the cast.  Questions? Email
studentmatinee@berkeleyrep.org or call 510 647-2978.

2018-19 student matinee schedule

Why do I list school matinees on CelebrateFamily?  Because most organizations will let you buy a minimum of 2 tickets.  Which means most kids in the area can see a play, symphony or event.
