Strange Alchemy 

Wednesday, Jan 29 2014

Prepare yourself for a chocolate-meets-peanut butter moment. This event, Wagner Bowling, rolls together two things previously unassociated: bowling and opera. Yes, that's right. Bowling and opera. The event is sponsored by the Merola Opera Program, an organization that creates social and educational events for young professionals who love the arts. Professional tenor Casey Candebat will be on hand, and the party is Viking-themed in honor of influential composer Richard Wagner (think Ride of the Valkyries and if that doesn't work, think Apocalypse Now, and if that still doesn't work, think dun-dun-dun dunnnn dunnnn!). So come ready for strikes, spares, and the occasional gutterball, in your finest Viking helmets, Brünnhilde braids, and other Nordic attire. Bonus tip: The Disney museum is only a block away. Stop by before the party for Disney Goes to the Opera. It's a look at the use of classical music in Disney films.

Sat., Feb. 8, 4:30-6 p.m., 2014

  • 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.
