Boardsports 1200 Clay map San Francisco North Beach/ Chinatown
Ongoing
When the ancient Polynesians invented surfing, they often used a paddle to help them navigate. Fast-forward a few millennia, and Stand-Up Paddleboarding, or SUP, finds itself trendy again. Part of its increasing popularity is that standing upright allows surfers to spot waves more easily and thus catch more of them, More
Through May 31, 2017
In the past 30 years, light artists have reimagined an art form that has always had the ability to turn the night sky, or a simple window, into luminescence. Last fall, the Yerba Buena Center for the Arts turned its southern glass wall into a parade of sound-sensing lights, Lightswarm, More
Randall Museum 199 Museum map San Francisco Castro/ Noe Valley
Saturdays, 10:15 a.m.
Many of us remember coming home from our elementary schools with freshly glazed pinchpots, cups, or whatever else our young imaginations could conjure up. Saturday mornings at the Randall Museum can bring that memory back, or create a new one for the youngsters. Ceramics make great gifts — especially on More
Saturdays, Sundays, 11 a.m.
Mural people are nuts. Wall paintings never last and can't be purchased, and the people who go specifically to see them are often the hoi polloi who know nothing about art. How can muralists expect to survive in the art world? The answer: They don't. The folks who make their More
Mondays, Thursdays-Sundays
Alcatraz -- "The Rock" -- is one of those tours that you have to take at least once, whether you're local or just visiting. The abandoned prison sitting on an island about a mile and a half off the city's north shore was home to some of the most infamous More
First Sunday of every month, 2:30 p.m.
They're squat, fat, and prone to a myriad of health issues. They resemble miniature Ewoks and can be heard blocks away by their heavy snorting and grunting. Of course the people of San Francisco want to dedicate one day each month to this creature, the pug. Pug owners, enthusiasts, and More
Coit Tower 1 Telegraph Hill map San Francisco North Beach/ Chinatown
Wednesdays, 11 a.m.
Coit Tower has its history, and it's definitely got its views -- and some of the best of each is inside the tower itself. The murals, commissioned during the beginning of the New Deal in the 1930s as a way to get artists back to work were painted by some More
Bike Kitchen 650H Florida map San Francisco Mission/ Bernal Heights
Second and Fourth Monday of every month, 6 p.m.
In the name of Miriam Bengoetxea, Basque bike engineer (of Orbea Orca fame), we command you to attend WTF: the Women, Transgenderqueer, and Femme bike-fix night! Bengoetxea is one of the only women in the world designing carbon-fiber bicycle frames, partly because she's had the support of the world-famous Mondragón More
Mondays-Saturdays
Eric Kipp may be brilliant. Without a doubt, the spirit of San Francisco itself pulses quickly in his veins, because he is the creator of Hiking Yoga. It's exactly what it sounds like; you follow the charge up one of our butt-bustin' hills, and once you're up there, the organizer/sherpas More

As a self-described "logical extension of a free public library," our local free walking-tour company is, like most libraries, a fascinating mash of nerdy and white-hot rad. The San Francisco City Guides walking tours happen every day (except major holidays), are free, and follow in the footsteps of hypereducated history More
Women's Building 3543 18th St. map San Francisco Mission/ Bernal Heights
Second Saturday of every month, 1 p.m. and Fourth Sunday of every month, 1 p.m.
In the beginning it was, of course, Ohlone Indian. Then it was Spanish-Ohlone. Were there Russians? It was Italian. Then it was Irish and German. As far as we can tell, the Mission District was never Chinese, but this is San Francisco, so why shouldn't it have been? It was More
ODC Dance Commons 351 Shotwell map San Francisco Mission/ Bernal Heights
Wednesdays, 7:30 p.m. and Saturdays, 1 p.m.
Jill Parker's Beginning Tribal Belly Dance classes are a classic San Francisco experience: They're welcoming, weird, diverse, sweaty, trance-inducing, and somehow simultaneously straight and gay. Some students love to feel they're in a place where it's OK to actually have a belly, some come to gain the inevitable boost in More
Magnet 4122 18th St. map San Francisco Castro/ Noe Valley
Third Wednesday of every month, 7:30 p.m.
Buried deep down in the very core of our hearts is the passion to perform. We secretly want to dress in 1960s get-up, strap on a ukulele, and do Tiny Tim covers. No? Maybe that's just us. However, we can all agree on the burning desire to perform and create More
111 Minna Gallery 111 Minna map San Francisco South of Market
Fourth Tuesday of every month, 6 p.m.
Sketch Tuesdays, founded in 2006, is a monthly event where 20 or so local artists hang out and make their art on a small scale. When the artwork is completed it becomes available to purchase by the audience mingling nearby -- and often for cheap! If you like the funky More
Harvey's 500 Castro map San Francisco Castro/ Noe Valley
Tuesdays, 9 p.m.
Comedy shows in bars can be an odd mix, especially when a birthday or bachelorette party means lots of stiff drinks and dildos strapped to the heads of the women tearing it up in their final hours before marriage. These giggling “dickheads” can be a comedian’s worst nightmare, as the More
