Get Out in Watsonville: A fundraiser, Durbin Day, and Latin dancing

A fundraiser for a heart transplant patient, Durbin Day in Santa Cruz, a city councilwoman gives inside perspectives, shopping at the Farmers Market and a night of Latin dancing are our suggestions to Get Out this weekend.

Where/When: , 1105 S Green Valley Rd, Saturday, 7:30 a.m. to 10 a.m. 

Why Go: This is a pancake breakfast with a purpose—to raise funds for Patrick Carroll who is waiting for a heart transplant. Carroll, 35, is a Watsonville resident, husband and father of two who is also a Monster Trucks fan. Help Carroll and his family raise the money they will need for his post-transplant care. 

Pricing: $7

Where/When: Santa Cruz Beach Boardwalk, 400 Beach Street, Santa Cruz, Saturday; concert at 5 p.m., but motorcade begins at 2 p.m.

Why Go: If James Durbin makes it to the final three in American Idol (and by the looks of it, he will) Saturday will be James Durbin Day in Santa Cruz with a motorcade, appearances throughout the city, and a concert by James on the boardwalk at 5 p.m. Let the votes be tallied, but get ready to celebrate Durbin in Santa Cruz Saturday.

Pricing: Free

Where/When:  , 75 Neilson St, Watsonville, CA 95076 (Senior Circle Room) Thursday, 6-7 p.m.

Why Go: Hear from Nancy Bilicich, Ed.D. and Watsonville  City Councilwoman, as she provides her perspectives on what it is like to be a woman on the city council.

Pricing: Free

Where/When: W Beach St & Main St., Friday, 3-7 p.m. 

Why Go: Fresh and organic and it feels like going to the mercado. If it's Friday it must be market day in Watsonville.

Pricing: Free to get in, but then depends on how much you want to spend.

Where/When: , 1934 Main St., Saturday, 6:30-9 p.m. 

Why Go: If you are in a Latin dance state of mind, then you should head to Cilantro's on Saturday night. Get there early and get some free dance lessons - salsa, bachata, chacha and merengue!

Pricing: Free admission
