If you don't care whether the San Francisco 49ers or Baltimore Ravens win the Super Bowl on Sunday, if you don't care who covers the spread, the East Bay offers plenty to do that afternoon that has nothing to do with football.
If you're planning a non-sports outing or know of such events, let us and your fellow Patch readers know about them in the comments section.
Here's a few suggestions:
- 'Old Wicked Songs' is a play about a piano prodigy playing at 2:30 p.m. at the Lesher Center for the Arts in Walnut Creek.
- The Sunday Walnut Creek Certified Farmers Market is open from 9 a.m. to 2 p.m. at Locust Street and Cole Avenue.
- The Moraga Certified Farmers Market is from 9 a.m. to mid-afternoon at Moraga Road and Moraga Way in ... uh ... Moraga.
- If you'd rather participate in sports than sit on the couch watching them, there's Drop-in Adult Basketball at the Wagner Ranch Elementary Gym, 350 Camino Pablo, Orinda. That's at 5 p.m.
- Or you can try Part Two, a game of Ultimate Football organized for 9:45 a.m. Saturday at 970 Palmer Road, Walnut Creek.
- The Lawrence Hall of Science in Berkeley is open from 10 a.m. to 5 p.m. that day. One of their ongoing exhibits now is Science on a Sphere, which features an animated globe where you can watch hurricanes form and tsunamis roar.
- If ghosts are more your thing, there is a paranormal conference being held all day Saturday and Sunday. The highlight of the Grey Ghost Paracon is an investigation of the supposedly haunted U.S.S. Hornet docked in Alameda.
