The week end feels like it came a bit early this week with Halloween falling on a Thursday. The celebration of All Hallows Eve continues Saturday, All Souls Day, in the Mission where sacred and secular meld for the annual San Francisco Dia de los Muertos celebration procession and altar building honoring the ancestors. If you’re starting to organize your ‘what to do list’ here’s our suggestions for the coming week end in the Castro.
Friday, November 1st: Join Under One Roof Pop Up Store (515 Castro St) for their holiday kick off party at 5PM. Come check out all the newest trim, gift ideas and decorations the non-profit is offering for the quickly approaching Holiday season. Libations provided by Barefoot Wines. A portion of the proceeds from all items sold fund SF HIV/AIDS organizations. Post party walk around the corner to Magnet SF (4122 18th St.) for their monthly art opening. Tonight’s reception is for November 2013′s featured artist Justin Lenzi. His show, Justime Universal Constant, consists of print work on paper in various forms. “I deconstruct some of the perceived confines of human sexuality through my printmaking magic”, Justin writes in his artist bio describing his work. Reception starts at 8PM with drinks and nibbles. Both of these events are FREE and open to all.
Saturday November 2nd: The weather report forecast has Saturday sunny but chilly. If you want to sleep in and hibernate no one will blame you but come night-time come join us over at Midnight Sun (4067 18th St.) when the creative crew from the long-running performance Queer club, Charlie Horse, kicks off their new night in the heart of the Castro. Two of SF’s hardest working ho’s, er, I mean hostesses, Muthachucka and one time SF Supervisor candidate, Anna Conda, will be in charge off a night of Sex, Drags, & Rock n’ Roll debauchery starting at 9PM for FREE! Woot! My kind of party!
Sunday November 3rd: Sunday is a chill day for many while others spend it bar hopping around the Castro to any one of the beer bust/fundraisers taking place supporting various organizations and non-profits. Check out the Edge, The Mix or Jock at the Lookout to see what’s happening. Or you could decide to devote the day to your physical and mental well-being.
Yoga Studio. This yoga class is a rejuvenating morning flow and meditation for body, mind, and spirit. Please bring a mat, blanket, friend, child, and even your doggie. Sunday is also Open Gym at the Eureka Valley Rec Center (100 Collingwood) sponsored by the SF Gay Basketball Association. Meet up with others and join in on raising your heart rate during a game of pick up basketball. Both events fees are nominal. Sunday Yoga is FREE or donation while basketball will cost you $5 bucks. Both are open to everyone no matter what the skill level.
Have a great week end and keep those event submissions coming!
