The 7 Day Stretch

Posted May 17, 2012 in The 7 Day Stretch


As a part of CSUSB’s annual initiative to create conversations about diversity, English professor and author of “A History of U.S. Feminism” Rory Dicker will be speaking. As she describes the waves of feminism seen throughout the country’s past, she labels today as the “post-feminism” age and comments on what the next generation must do to keep feminism on a positive road upwards.

It all began at the Coors Light Super Talents Showcase back in 1987. Since then Wanda Sykes is recognized as both a popular comedian as well as a prominent female figure in the LGBT community.

The Circle City Chorale is back to spice up your day with a new, inspirational show. C’mon, you can’t listen to the radio forever when the only broadcasts are the Biebster and other annoying artists. Performing Broadway songs from Guys and Dolls to more modern tunes like Coldplay’s “Viva la Vida” and even Sting’s “Fields of Gold,” this chorale group knows how to keep things fresh but still sounding great.

4pm. Also on May 19, 2pm & 7pm. $10 for adults, $7 for kids. Corona United Methodist Church, 2880 California Ave., Corona;




We’re in the heart of the minor league season and with weather that isn’t quite 100-plus degrees (yet), there’s no better time to check out the IE 66ers’ next home game. Even better, you get to see them play head to head against another local team, the Rancho Cucamonga Quakes. It’s sure to be a fun, competitive game with two farm teams for the Angels of Anaheim and the LA Dodgers.

1:05pm. $6-$10. San Manuel Stadium, 280 S. E St., San Bernardino, (909) 888-9922;




In this combination exhibit (Golden Rain, Joshua D’s Wall, and The Dilemma) Michael Petry creates visionary glass works to alter how a viewer perceives the medium. Where glass might be viewed as fragile and delicate, Petry adds strength in numbers with large blown glass hanging from the ceiling and covering the museum floor followed by musical scores accompaniment by John Powell and Gavin Greenaway.

Thru July 29. Gallery hours: Tues, Wed, Fri, Sat. 10am-5pm. Palm Springs Art Museum, 101 Museum Dr., Palm Springs, (760) 322-4800;




Believing that the continents of the world were once a single mega-continent isn’t as farfetched as you might think. I mean c’mon, the evidence seems so clear: Earth’s continents look like giant puzzle pieces. In “Understanding Connections . . . 300 Million years Ago,” Dr. Stuart Sumida fully embraces the idea of the “Pangea” as he lectures on the similarities between fossils found in North America and fossils found in Europe.

7:30pm. Free. San Bernardino County Museum, 2024 Orange Tree Ln., Redlands, (909) 307-2669;
