Ded­i­cate this day of rest to art and an­tiques. But best to start at Dawn’s Delecta­bles with baked goods juicy enough to put you back onto gluten. The Rec­tan­gle Gallery turned a main-street store­front into an open- space co- op for lo­cal artists to display their works. (Artist Abi­gail Gary’s paint­ings man­age to make a for­est ser­vice road look haunt­ingly beau­ti­ful.) Apart from the tat­too par­lours, Elks Lodge and the beauty col­lege, Tower Street is a ver­i­ta­ble an­tique row. But these aren’t just your grand­mother’s doilies: one store spe­cial­izes in mil­i­tary uni­forms, high school year­books and Aloha shirts, all in im­pres­sive quan­ti­ties.

When it fi­nally re­opens, the Fox Theatre will be a movie- go­ing ex­pe­ri­ence to ri­val any­thing else north of Hol­ly­wood. Pair that with din­ner at La Tarasca, re­puted to be the best Mex­i­can north of Cal­i­for­nia, and you’ve got your­self a date night to cap off the week­end.— M.T.
