Upcoming Concerts at Cal State Fullerton

Late spring and early into the summer is the perfect time to get active and start doing things around your city.

Here are three upcoming concerts taking place on the CSUF compass over the next few weeks. Most of the events are free and open to the public.

Where To Wine and Dine Near Fullerton

Many of us spend our time eating out at fast food restaurants or moderately priced sit down restaurants. And while those places can be tasty and a great place to eat at, sometimes we need to go all out and have a fine dining experience straight out of the movies. Getting dressed up and visiting an ultra-fancy and expensive restaurant is always a great reminder of why you work so hard. An expensive and well-cooked steak is something dreams are made of. Here is a quick list of three fine-dining restaurants to experience near your Fullerton apartment.

Fullerton Eats: Where to Get Pancakes

Pancakes have been a staple of the American breakfast since the Pilgrims first crossed the Atlantic and settled in American. Actually, that information may not be accurate because I do not know what the Pilgrims were eating for breakfast. What I do know, however, is that Americans love pancakes. They are so fluffy, tasty and yummy to eat on a Saturday morning. We even have a national pancake day. If you are searching for the best pancakes in Fullerton, here is a quick list of three of the best spots according to Yelp. Try them out and let us know just how good they really are.

Attend the Cal State Fullerton Symphony Orchestra’s Spring Performance

Winter is officially gone and spring is finally here. We can all wake up from our self-enforced hibernation and actually get outside and start enjoying life again. The sun is shining, the days are longer and everyone is in a great mood (well, most people anyway). This April, the University Symphony Orchestra, directed by Kimo Furumoto, will be performing live on the Cal State Fullerton campus for a number of dates, and getting out to enjoy a bit of classical music can be a great way to get into the spring spirit.

The orchestra partners with university choruses, Opera Theatre, CSUF faculty-artists, and other guest artists over the course of the season. Tickets are $15 and performances are held at the Meng Concert Hall. If you are looking to try something new this spring, this is the event to visit in Fullerton.
