Where/When: Get half-price admission at 40 museums throughout the county Feb. 1-28.
Why Go: You can experience everything from art, music and history to the environment, the military and zoology at the participating museums.
Pricing: Free vouchers can be picked up at any Macy's store in the county. Tickets at the museums vary, but each voucher is good for up to four half-price admissions.

Where/When: Qualcomm Stadium,  Feb 4-6.

Why Go: If you're already wondering if you need to revamp your back yard as summer approaches, the Spa, Pool and Barbecue Show might be the place to spend part of your weekend.

Pricing: Free.

Where/When: Del Norte High School, 4 p.m. Feb. 6.

Why Go: Well, yeah, that other sporting event is going on this afternoon, but hey, you don't get to meet any of the Steelers or Packers personally. Set to appear: Adrian Gonzalez, Heath Bell and Quentin Jammer. Also to be featured: music and a silent auction.

Pricing: Free, but signing up online for a ticket is encouraged.

Where/When: Wynola Pizza Express, Friday and Saturday, 6-9 p.m.

Why Go: For the different styles of music. See American Roots band Grand Canyon Sundown on Friday or bluegrass band, the Taildraggers, on Saturday.

Pricing: Free.

Where/When: California Center for the Arts, 7 p.m. Feb. 5.

Why Go: For a unique take on a Biblical standard. Ballet Magnificat!, a Christian troupe, performs "Ruth," a variation on the Old Testament story, which transfers the tale to Spain, with a voyage to America.

Pricing: $9.50.
