What are you doing this weekend?

Superstitious or not, this Friday the 13th will be scary. First of all, Friday the 13th is considered an unlucky day, if not the unluckiest of them all. Second of all, it’s full moon – time when things (and people) get crazy. Perfect time to partake in a cemetery tour after dark! The Old City Cemetery in Sacramento (1000 Broadway) is conducting a summer tour aptly called “The Unlucky 13” on Friday, June 13, at 6:45, 7:30 and 8:15 p.m. You will hear 13 stories about bad luck and poor souls being in the wrong place at the wrong time. You will also be dared to walk under a ladder, step on a crack, and there will be black cats galore. Are you scared yet? You shouldn’t be; the tour is guided by the un–dead, plus you can stay after your tour to win prizes. If you survive it, of course. Price: $13 Learn more at

It’s paddle time! It’s like hiking around the river, but on a kayak. Plus you’ll get to see every curve and crevice of the Cosumnes River up close and personal when you attend a Cosumnes River free guided paddle organized by the Cosumnes River Preserve Visitor Center. Listen for the distant calls of songbirds and river otters splashing in the water – and catch a glimpse at their water life. Your guides will be waiting for you at the Visitor Center on Saturday, June 14, at 8:30 a.m. After you unload your canoe or kayak, put your life jacket on and lather on sunscreen, it’s time to go and explore the Cosumnes River. The trip takes about four hours, so bring your own water, snacks, sunscreen and if you can’t stand bugs, don’t forget insect repellent. Price: FREE Learn more here

Two things you may know about Murphys: They have good food and good wine. One thing that you probably didn’t know about Murphys: Lady Antebellum will be performing there this Friday. Undoubtedly one of the most popular music groups of the past decade, Lady Antebellum has been breaking sales records and collecting prestigious awards with their instantly appealing and easy-to-remember music (“It’s a quarter after one, I’m all alone and I need you now” … anyone?). Starting as a country group, the trio soon swept the world of popular music off their feet and now you can see them at the Ironstone Amphitheatre at Ironstone Vineyards as a part of their Take Me Downtown Tour 2014 on Friday, June 13, at 7:30 p.m. Surprisingly, Lady Antebellum is not the first popular group to perform in Murphys. Ironstone Vineyards is not only famous for its wines, but also for its love of music. They put on annual concerts and in the past featured acts such as Lynyrd Skynyrd, Faith Hill, Willie Nelson or Sheryl Crow. Price: $48-$240 Learn more here
