Love Me Do, Hear, & See-3For the week of March 12-18, 2018
For those of you who didn’t give up carbs for Lent and are not counting down the days until Easter, I’m here to tell you that March is almost halfway over and Spring is right around the corner. New Year’s resolutions are long gone at this point, so rather than dwell on the six-and-a-half pounds you have yet to lose, let’s focus on what you’ve got in store for the week ahead…
It’s the day you’ve all been waiting for, or at least I know I have. This Monday, kick off Smartazz Trivia’s Inaugural Night at McGee’s! Be sure to arrive by 7 to choose the teams, because trivia kicks off at 7:30 pm sharp. Booze, food, and prizes galore – definitely not an event to be missed.
If you spend every day sitting at a desk like I do, I’m guessing you could really use a good stretch. Come loosen up every Tuesday night at the Skyhigh Odditorium in Oakland. The class welcomes all levels and will focus on teaching you how to stretch and strengthen in safe, effective ways! The best part? Expect to leave class each week with new exercises to practice at home. Drop-ins are always welcome!

Nerd alert! It’s time for a Pi Day Celebration. Mission Bay’s regular “Neighborhood Block Party” will be featuring food trucks serving up a variety of $3.14 specials (everything from slices of pie to sangria and cheeseburger slides). That means you can enjoy a little bit from each truck. Obviously! Come for lunch (11am-3pm) or for dinner (5pm-9pm), but in any case, come hungry!

Come out to Haight Ashbury Comedy Night at Milk Bar, located in the heart of the historic Haight-Ashbury district, to see some of SF’s best comedic talent. Comedians on the show have been featured on MTV, Comedy Central, SF Sketchfest, Comedy Day and Punchline. Plus, what else have you got on the agenda for a Thursday?

Happy St. Patrick’s Day! The Bay Area is alive and well with Irish heritage, food, and activities, but if you’re looking for something local to the island, check out The Penny Opry at Fireside Lounge. Joan plays an antique button accordion, Rosie plays a suitcase drum kit and a ukulele – what more could you ask for? As if an afternoon of drinking songs and sea chanties weren’t enough to entice you, there’s no cover charge and $20 will buy you bottomless mimosas and bloody Mary’s. Ah, the luck of the Irish!
