Ha, ha, we're just kidding with the cynical headline: The St. Patrick's Day Parade is as much family fun this year as it is every year. It's huge! Irish dance schools, bagpipe contingents of even-paler Scots, the Irish Wolfhound Rescue Trust, and all the marching bands you could wish for head to Civic Center Plaza for a beer fest. Oh, oops, for a fun time. Plus, for anyone keeping track of Roman Catholic calendar minutiae, Saint Patrick's Day is a movable feast this year for the first time since 1940.

  • U2 @ SAP Center in San Jose
    Last night U2 performed the first U.S. date of it’s Innocence + Experience tour at SAP Center in San Jose. All four band members were present despite recent injuries sustained by both Bono and Edge. The sold out show took audience members on a walk down memory lane as the band revisited their roots. The innovative stage and lighting used gave the arena show an intimate feel, and engaged audience members in all sections of the venue. Photographs by Sugarwolf.
  • Bay to Breakers 2015 - NSFW
    The 103rd annual Bay to Breakers 12K race was packed on Sunday despite the cold weather. With a starting point a few blocks from The Embarcadero, people dressed as bananas, Elvis and everything in between ran west through the city and finished at the Great Highway where breakers crash onto Ocean Beach.
