Love Me Do, Hear, & See June 10th – 16th, 2019For the kiddos, “School’s out for summer,” and for some of us, “School’s out forever.” Summer is almost (officially) here which means it’s time to set your Netflix aside, at least for a day or two, and get out there with the rest of the sunshine dwellers. From Oakland hikes to outdoor concerts at the Greek, there are tons of fun things to do in the Bay Area this summer.
Here are a few ideas to get you started:
Monday June 10th
The NBA Finals continue tonight as the Warriors return to Toronto to defend their title. Why kick it at home when you can catch the live simulcast at Alameda Theatre? Big screen, big sweat, bags of popcorn… count us in!

Tuesday June 11th
If you’ve yet to catch a campy flick at the Alamo Drafthouse, you’re sorely missing out. This week’s Terror Tuesday pick is “In the Mouth of Madness”, the third and final chapter in John Carpenter's Apocalypse Trilogy. This one really captures the atmosphere of mid-90s horror before “Scream” flipped the script two years later.

Wednesday June 12th
Want to take the afternoon off? Head to Dunsmuir Mansion for a self-guided tour every Wednesday and Friday afternoon this summer. 37-rooms, 10 fireplaces, 16,224 square feet – that’s a lot to explore and all for the price of $5-10. Be sure to pack a picnic to enjoy on the lawns post-tour.
