Fundraisers, Tastings and Music Top Campbell's Weekend Calendar

Eat out to support AIDS research or walk for babies; olive oil tastings, music events that offer something for everyone — you;ve got the makings of a busy weekend, one that will actually start Thursday in Campbell this week.

Where/When: , 1875 S Bascom Ave., 200 E Hamilton Ave., , 1710 W Campbell Ave, Campbell 5:00 p.m. to 10:00 p.m, except for Mama Mia's that opens at 11:30 a.m. for this event.

Why Go:  It's always nice to go out for a good meal. It's even nice to go out for a good meal for a good cause.  These four Los Gatos restaurants are participating in Dining Out For Life 2011, donating 25 percent  of their food sales Thursday to The Health Trust AIDS Services. 

Pricing:  The cost of your meal. 

Where/When: , 232 E Campbell Ave., Thursday 6:00 p.m. to 8:00 p.m. 

Why Go: Stop by this tasting class and learn something about olive oil. There's more than meets the eyes (or the tastebuds). You will learn about different oils and how to mix them with balsamic to make the best salad dressings and marinades. Bread dipping and you can bring your own wine to hold down the cost.  A tasty way to spend two hours.

Pricing:  $5

Where/When: , 530 E Campbell Ave. Friday, 7:00 p.m. to 12:00 p.m. 

Why Go:  Come to sample this "mix of flavors" from your corner music store with a "Menage a Trois" of local musicians Kori Thompson, Anthony Trayer, and Anabella Pinon.  Come out and support the music, support the program, and get some vinyl (records!)

Pricing: Free 

Where/When: Los Gatos High School 20 High School Ct, Los Gatos, Sunday, 2:30 p.m.

Why Go: The 6.25 mile walk is a fundraiser for the March of Dimes' Walk for Babies. It's a natonwide effort and in Los Gatos walkers and runners are lining up behind this effort.
