There are a couple ways to “Disney” if you belong to the non-infantile set: You can stand in line in the sweltering heat with said infants to ride a flying elephant and buy a Mickey Mouse-shaped lollipop, or satisfy your youthful spirit in a decidedly more enjoyable way, with a little darkness and a lot more drinking. Bringing back nightlife events that rival those of Cal Academy and the Exploratorium, The Walt Disney Family Museum is hosting its monthly Animate Your Night after-hours event, Hippos, Demons, and Mice...Oh, Kley! This month the museum celebrates Walt’s favorite European animator, the delectably dark Heinrich Kley, illustrator of the famous “The Dance of the Hours” sequence from Fantasia. Kley’s non-Disney work stayed on the darker side, and his inky animal and human fantasies have recently been re-published in various books. Tonight’s party is cabaret style, featuring entertainment appropriate to the theme, live sketching, and a screening of Fantasia. To drink? Absinthe-laced cocktails and complementary bites from local restaurant Dixie.

  • 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.
