Elizabeth Weintraub Sacramento Real Estate Agent, Top 1% of Lyon Agents ~ hi Elizabeth... for me, the Oscar show is a must. One of the things I miss most about NYC is living 5 minutes from the Metropolitan Museum where I could pop over easily to see the exhibits in the Costume Museum. The Queen's Cup Steeplechase is a great affair... our little version of the Kentucky Derby.
