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
Wednesdays, Saturdays, 9 a.m. and Sundays, 10 a.m.
Sometimes it seems like we have it so good around here. Even our volunteer work is relatively glamorous -- no working with corny religious charities for us! (Even our religious charities are cool, as in Glide Church.) Instead, we can hoof it out to the gorgeous reclaimed military installation and More
San Francisco Botanical Garden Martin Luther King Jr. map San Francisco Sunset (Inner)
Sundays, 1 p.m.
Just about every Sunday since 1882, the Golden Gate Park Band has been performing for San Franciscans, tourists, and park-goers. Nested between the Academy of Sciences and the de Young Museum at the Spreckels Temple of Music (which became its home in 1900) the GGPB has become a San Francisco 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
Cypress Lawn 1370 El Camino map Daly City Daly City
Third Saturday of every month, 1:30 p.m.
When the Laurel Hill Cemetery fell into disrepair in the late nineteenth century, a new resting place had to be found for the roughly 35,000 people buried there. A new, larger, cemetery was constructed in what is today Colma (the city whose motto is "it's good to be alive in 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
First Saturday of every month, 8 p.m.
Truss up your breeches for this one: The ships down at Fisherman's Wharf are well known to children and tourists, but once a month, in the dead of night, locals creep to the C.A. Thayer and the Balclutha. For 20 years, the National Parks Service has hosted the Chantey Sing More
The Knockout 3223 Mission map San Francisco Mission/ Bernal Heights
First Friday of every month, 10 p.m.
Few things can match the sheer exuberance of a packed house at Oldies Night. The long-standing Mission staple is one of the best places in the city to lose yourself and sweat it out dancing to soul 45s. DJs Primo and Daniel serve up a broad selection of cuts (both 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
