So, you know already that it's Pride this weekend, right? If not, perhaps our Bingo cards clued you in? There are a lotta activities in place to help break your routine in the next couple days, regardless of what gender(s) get you all flushed and blushed. Here's a lucky seven list of favorite events pulled from the batch of weekend distractions.
Come to Our Party! (Fri.)
There's nothing like starting the weekend with free beer. In a submarine. Built into the new Mollusk on Valencia St. Come say hi at our Voyager Pre-Opening Party (from 6-8 p.m.) have a drink, check out art and clothes and surfboards and people and stuff. It's free. Just RSVP (email@example.com).
Go Back to Music School (Thurs. & Fri.)
GraffEats is doing another clandestine meal with a music theme, and this time they're pairing with a crew from Copenhagen. They're holing up in a high school library, so you can get your Breakfast Club on for dinner. Or something. (My suggestion: sit near whomever most resembles Bender).
Stag on the Square (Sat. & Sun.)
Stag Dining Group is hosting another delicious sounding dining event in a mysterious (and I hear luxurious) location near Alamo Square. These dudes are tons of fun to dine with.
Flash & Pop (Sat.)
Michael Jackson dance classes and flash mob. Need I say more? (Other than the mobs will perform four times at four locations between 3 and 6 p.m.)
Go to the (Rock) Opera (Sat.)
The Who's magical rock opera, Lifehouse, will be performed in all its glory by local band Mushroom.
Six is the Magic Number (Sun.)
Hard French's Pride party, Los Homos, looks massive in size and fun. Big Freedia alone should be worth the $20 admission for this party starting at 2 p.m., but add in Nick Waterhouse, Erase Errata, plus more, and you have a six-part dance extravaganza worth being proud of.
Pool Parade (Sun.)
Juanita MORE!'s pool parties are the stuff of legend. Twelve hours of music from top shelf DJs should transform even the coolest Juneuary afternoon into a hotty version of a Palm Springs staycation.
