UHAUL SF with Bribee + Gunn Lundemo

This International Women’s Month, show the women who love women in your life a little love at a banging club night. UHAUL consistently brings in top talent and this session is no exception as former Bay Area DJ Bribee makes a highly-anticipated return from NYC to open for DJ Gunn Lundemo, hailing all the way from Stockholm. Ladies get in for free before 10:30pm with proof of cohabitation (just show matching ID addresses)!  

Artspan Reception at Ritual Coffee

Feel that creative buzz as ArtSpan unveils a new exhibition featuring works by some great talents. Ritual Coffee Roasters is playing host to the reception, serving up some of its famous brew and tasty treats to complement the mix of mediums. It’s all part of the ambitious organization’s Art-in-Neighborhoods program, which aims to make art accessible to everyone — even caffeine addicts.  

Yoga in the Park

Feeling in need of a strong dose of chill? Combine two reliable stress relievers into one bountiful outing with donation-based yoga in the park this weekend. All levels are welcome to meet up at the President Garfield statue near the Conservatory of Flowers for some relaxing and rejuvenating stretching and meditation. Heck, we bet no one would even mind if you just sat on a mat watching dogs play for an hour. Namaste.    

The Shape of Water + Creature From the Black Lagoon

Still haven't caught Guillermo del Toro’s Oscar winning damsel-slash-monster meet-cute, The Shape of Water? Reel in the critically revered picture this week, perfectly paired with the classic horror flick that inspired it, Creature From the Black Lagoon. The Roxie is serving the catch 'o the day, for one night only.

Steve Aoki

Steve Aoki has become more than just a household name over the past few years: the energetic DJ has managed to break multiple world records for his sheer show stamina and touring miles accrued, and has cemented a place for himself in the fickle world of EDM. Head down to Civic Center to see Aoki perform alongside Desiigner, the MC best known for his 2016 single "Panda."  

San Francisco International Chocolate Salon

Let your inner Cathy cartoon frolic as you explore sweets from dozens of chocolate artisans and premium confectioners. In addition to unlimited tastings, there will be expert speakers on hand, book signings, awards honoring local women chocolatiers and — to ensure everything is as decadent as possible — wine. The event lasts nearly eight hours, so be sure to pace yourself.


If you can’t get enough reality TV food competition, take your obsession to the real world at this lively event. TequilaMANIA finds chefs pairing up with bartenders to create a winning south-of-the-border-inspired bite and tequila cocktail duo. Guests vote for the winners, who will walk away with a custom wrestling belt and bragging rights.
