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.
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.
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.
