Mother-daughter Duet 

Wednesday, Dec 18 2013

The holidays are about families, and what better way to commemorate them than by watching a mother-daughter team kill it on the dance floor? No, not Dainty June and Gypsy Rose Lee, and not Sigourney Weaver and Jennifer Love Hewitt in that 2001 chick flick Heartbreakers — think a little more local and a lot more Latin. Ballet Flamenco's Carolina Lugo and Carolé Acuña perform their Fiesta Navidena 2013 at Peña Pachamama. Have an organic grass-fed steak, sip a sangria, and sit back as the former speakeasy where Marilyn Monroe and Joe DiMaggio had their wedding dinner and Clark Gable held illicit trysts with Carole Lombard is transformed into a rhythmic hotbox of footwork, song, castanets, syncopated hand clapping, and guitar. Exorcise the bitter and ring in the sweet with a thorough drumming of heels.

Fridays-Sundays, 6:15 p.m. Starts: Dec. 7. Continues through Dec. 29, 2013

  • 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.
