The Octopus' Winter Solstice Salon 

When: Sat., Dec. 21, 4-10 p.m. 2013
Price: $12
What better place to celebrate the winter solstice than at an observatory, and what better way to do it than with holiday-themed music, stories, and, of course, hot cider? This Saturday, the beloved, local literary event The Octopus takes over Chabot Space and Science Center (10000 Skyline Blvd., Oakland) for an evening of family-friendly lit-nerd fun, including musical performances by The Hot Toddies; a participatory reading of several original solstice plays, written by octopus founder Rebecca Grove; carols, storytelling, and crafts aplenty; a live video feed of the solstice sunrise piped in from Ireland; and access to Chabot’s super-powerful telescopes, all the better to gape at the setting sun and, later, the stars, with.
