It's Not Too Late: TOTEM runs until April 15th!

It's not too late!
If you haven't already, you've got one week to catch one of the hottest, most astounding shows here in San Jose.

TOTEM, the traveling Cirque du Soleli show is still mesmerizing audiences, and will be until April 15th.

There is not a moment in the show that I was not amazed, smiling, or actually Oohing and Ahhing at the amazing talent these performers have.

Like many Cirque shows, there is also plenty of humous moments thrown throughout the show.

A couple of favorite moments from the evening..

The "Russian Bars": Just take a look at this photo. Do you see the thin little bouncy bar and how high off the ground these guys are? They jump and twist high in the air and magically (something tells me crazy amounts of practice has something to do with it) land each time back on the bars. This performance had me holding my breath.

Another performance I enjoyed was the five girls on unicycles. I don't think I blinked during this part. I like to just TRY to imagine myself in the situation. Having to think about keeping the rhythm with your feet and making sure you're at a certain distance… ignore the audience… and TOSS!CATCH! Don't fall! Yeah I could totally do it. ;)

You've seen the ads, the artwork wrapped around the Light Rail trains… you've heard your friends rave about it. Be one of them and SEE THIS SHOW before time runs out!

The Weekend Map: San Jose

Here's a pretty cool site that I just found out about called "the weekend map."  It let's you see things that are going on in San Jose over the weekend spanning concerts, sports, volunteer events, conventions, etc. The interface is really slick and lets you quickly filter to only see what's relevant to you.

Check it out right over here.
