When the ancient Polynesians invented surfing, they often used a paddle to help them navigate. Fast-forward a few millennia, and Stand-Up Paddleboarding, or SUP, finds itself trendy again. Part of its increasing popularity is that standing upright allows surfers to spot waves more easily and thus catch more of them, multiplying the fun factor. Paddling back to the wave becomes less of a strain as well. The ability to cruise along on flat inland water, surveying the sights, is another advantage. Finally, its a good core workout. If youre sold on the idea, schedule an intro SUP lesson, free with board and paddle rental, and you may find yourself riding the waves like a Polynesian king.More
The Illogical Contraption podcast, starring your favorite black-metal-anarcho-horror-comedy-conspiracy-theory freaks, is appearing live this week with very special guests. It's the first time they've put on a live show, and they're bringing out the big guns (Not real guns! This isn't Texas, Alex Jones) with San Francisco's ever-present drag phenom Peaches Christ, comedian Kaseem Bentley, and longtime activist/spoken word celebrity/punk frontman Jello Biafra! These local personalities highlight the socially-conscious-but-also-weird personality that San Francisco used to embody. The Illogical Contraption folks continue to keep it weird, so if you want to channel that, seek out this show. This isn't your grandfather's podcast. And it's not Serial, either, or Marc Maron.
The Illogical Contraption podcast tapes at 8 p.m. at the Punch Line Comedy Club, 444 Battery St., S.F. $16.50; 415-397-7573 or facebook.com/illogicalcontraption. More
To the question of, "Do you love him?," you might reply, "Do I WHAT?!" Especially after some Pride hookups that value good ol' lust over something you and your Bubbe would actually have a conversation about. Although there are already Jewish Grindr-type apps, some boys in town have the chutzpah to get out there in person and find their bashert at Mazel Top! Matchmaker Matchmaker. So you can kvetch about how hard it is to find a Nice Jewish Mensch (whether you're a Yid or a goy), but today's showrunner, Geoff, will show you how easy it is to play yenta while still enjoying a great night out at one of the hippest joints in town. Worst-case scenario: You dance your tuchus off. Best-case scenario: Your parents are singing "Sunrise, Sunset" beneath the chuppah within the year.
The party starts at 8 p.m. at Oasis, 298 11th St., S.F. $3-$5; sfoasis.com/event.cfm?id=149317. More
