Drop-In Family Ceramics Workshop

Randall Museum : 10:15 a.m. every Sat.

Many of us remember coming home from our elementary schools with freshly glazed pinchpots, cups, or whatever else our young imaginations could conjure up. Saturday mornings at the Randall Museum can bring that memory back, or create a new one for the youngsters. Ceramics make great gifts --... More >>

The Business: A Comedy Show

Dark Room Theater : 8:00 p.m. every Wed.

Four comedians anchor the weekly stand-up show The Business, and they’re all extremely smart and funny. Alex Koll has dramatic hair on his face and head, Sean Keane is bringin’ self-deprecation back, and Chris Garcia is mean and angry, yet somehow also gentle. But we bet they all hate... More >>

Alcatraz Night Tour

Alcatraz Island : Every Mon., Thu., Fri., Sat., Sun.

Alcatraz -- "The Rock" -- is one of those tours that you have to take at least once, whether you're local or just visiting.

Outdoor Exploratorium

Fort Mason : Daily

Did you know that when the Golden Gate Bridge gets hot, it sits low in the saddle? Course you didn’t: You don’t have a Bridge Thermometer, which looks like one of those scenic coin-op binoculars crossed with a first-person shooter. Peer into it (no coin needed!) and it shows the... More >>

"Loose Joints"

Make-Out Room : 10:00 p.m. every Fri.

Since 2007, the DJ trio of Tom Thump, Damon Bell, and DJ Centipede has offered up Loose Joints, the most ass-shakingest weekly survey of African-rooted pop in the city.

"That '80s Show"

Madrone Art Bar : 9:00 p.m. third Fri. of every month

If the 20th Century is far too futuristic for you already, settle back into the '80s, and all its hip-hop glory, at That '80s Show. Bomb Hip-Hop DJs Dave Paul and Jeff Harris spin from the golden era of beats and emcees, or, as they put it, "Cabbage Patch Kids, Rubik's Cube, Live Aid,... More >>

Haight/ Fillmore Music


Skylark Bar : 10:00 p.m. every Thu.

Ever since she was a child, Bay Area DJ ThatGirl has been interested in street art and its connection to the hip-hop movement. However, it wasn't until she attended a rave in 1997 that she discovered her desire to channel this creativity into music, most notably turntablism. She soon purchased... More >>

Sunday Open Gym

Eureka Valley Recreation Center : 5:00 p.m. every Sun.

Large American cities during the industrial age had amateur baseball leagues made up of blue-collar workers who created their own little societies unseen by the general populace. Men formed their teams — representing factories, power plants, and other facilities — developed rivalries,... More >>

"High Fantasy"

Aunt Charlie's Lounge : 10:00 p.m. every Tue.

Weekends are for amateurs — the really good stuff happens during the week. Well, that might be a little hyperbolic, but it's certainly true in the case of High Fantasy. Going on for over two years now, the weekly Tuesday night party at Aunt Charlie's is your midweek destination for a dose... More >>

John Colins : 10:00 p.m. third Fri. of every month

According to San Francisco-based hip-hop DJ Ryan Nolan, aka Ry Toast, her two professions of DJing and yoga instructor really aren't that different.

Friday Nights at the de Young

de Young Museum : 5:00 p.m. every Fri. until November 28

Ferry Plaza Saturday Farmers' Market

Ferry Building : 10:00 a.m. every Sat.

Tomatoes, bell peppers, and jalapeño. Three examples of things that are nearly impossible to grow in this city -- even in the Mission sun. But fear not, you don't have to cut them out of your diet or resort to a supermarket. Every Saturday morning, growers from around the Bay Area and... More >>

Poetry at the 33

3300 Club : 7:00 p.m. last Tue. of every month

Most of what we know about Poetry at the 33 is that Kim Addonizio either used to hang out there or still does. That may sound like it isn't very much to go on, but Addonizio is one of the city's most underrated talents. She's a fucking genius, if you want to know the truth. If there's any... More >>

Kirk Maxson: Foraging

Eleanor Harwood Gallery : Every Wed., Thu., Fri., Sat. until May 10

Park Life : 6:00 p.m. daily until May 18

Stock car racing has broad appeal, from applied physics converting raw power into mechanical poetry in motion, to the thrill of knowing that at any moment something could go horribly wrong. In "Crash," Hilary Pecis deconstructs stock photos of cars mangled in NASCAR races and recombines them... More >>

"Dub Mission"

Elbo Room : 9:00 p.m. every Sun.

DJ Sep Ghadishah has put on the Sunday night Dub Mission party at the Elbo Room for more than 15 years. As local club nights go, that's kind of insane; most survive for only a fraction of that time. But through consistent bookings, DJ Sep has managed not only to keep Dub Mission alive, but to... More >>

Mission/ Bernal Heights Music

Hillbilly Hootenanny West Side Revue

The Riptide : 7:30 p.m. first Sun. of every month

The Outer Sunset is typically known for only a few things: surfing and fog. But recently the neighborhood has experienced a small revitalization in the form of local hotspots like Trouble Coffee, General Store, and Outerlands. This isn't to say that the area's long-established locales are going... More >>

California Academy of Sciences : 6:00 p.m. - 10:00 p.m. every Thu.

It doesn't get more sophisticated than a cocktail in one hand and no children in sight. Add some jellyfish, dim lights, and a second cocktail in the other hand and you've got NightLife at the Academy of Sciences held every Thursday night from 6-10 p.m. The evening caters specifically to the 21+...

Chantey Sing

Hyde Street Pier : 8:00 p.m. first Sat. of every month

Truss up your breeches for this one: The ships down at Fisherman's Wharf are well known to children and tourists, but once a month, in the dead of night, locals creep to the C.A. Thayer and the Balclutha. For 20 years, the National Parks Service has hosted the Chantey Sing on these two... More >>

The Moth StorySLAM

Rickshaw Stop : 7:00 p.m. second Mon. of every month

Storytelling is really hot right now, partly thanks to the MOTH series, which hosts its San Francisco StorySLAM once a month at the Rickshaw Stop. Whether you've got a great five-minute true story to tell — like about how you once were almost kidnapped in Brazil or how you once ate a... More >>

Infusion Lounge : 7:00 p.m. third Thu. of every month

As far as we can tell, San Francisco's first drag bar was a happy accident — unofficial history holds that Joe Finocchio established his eventually world-famous "female impersonator" spot in 1936 after hearing a customer in his father's bar imitate Sophie Tucker, known for her risque... More >>

Intimate Impressionism from the National Gallery of Art

Legion of Honor : Every Tue., Wed., Thu., Fri., Sat., Sun. until August 3

Once again, one museum's temporary closing is San Francisco's temporary gain. Recent years have brought Picasso to the de Young from the Musee National Picasso, and Dutch treasures (including Girl With a Pearl Earring) to the same museum from the Netherlands' Mauritshuis. Now, the renovation... More >>

Precita Eyes Mission Trail Mural Walks

Precita Eyes Mural Arts & Visitors Center : 11:00 a.m. every Sat., Sun.

Mural people are nuts. Wall paintings never last and can't be purchased, and the people who go specifically to see them are often the hoi polloi who know nothing about art. How can muralists expect to survive in the art world? The answer: They don't. The folks who make their work on outdoor... More >>
