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
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
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
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
Fridays, Saturdays, 10 p.m.
This city's theater scene is chock-full of improv. Whether you're new to it or a grizzled veteran, you won't have to hunt too long to find a venue. Each Friday and Saturday night, the Shelton Theatre hosts its own brand of "secret" improv theater. The stage at the Shelton has More
Amnesia 853 Valencia map San Francisco Mission/ Bernal Heights
Second Saturday of every month, 9 p.m.
In a period of time seemingly dominated by guests from out of town, it's comforting to know that there are still local alternatives. 2 Men Will Move You is a party put together by long-time fixtures on the San Francisco nightlife scene Primo Pitino (of Oldies Night fame) and Jordan 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
Fridays, Saturdays, 8:30 p.m.
The Audium was started in 1965 by composer Stan Shaff and equipment designer Doug McEachern. Shows are Fridays and Saturdays, and you have to be there on time — they lock the door. The room fits 50 people or so. There are chairs arranged in a semicircle. There are something More
California Academy of Sciences 55 Music Concourse map San Francisco Richmond (Inner)
Ongoing
In ancient Rome, the god of fertility was honored in February, with ceremonial love lotteries and mock-floggings with a bloody goatskin. Even those are a pale reflection of truly bizarre courtships that unfold in the natural world. For example, the common garden snail is a hermaphrodite that carries both sets More
House of Air 926 Mason map San Francisco The Presidio
Mondays, Wednesdays, Thursdays, 7 p.m. and Saturdays, 9 a.m.
You like to have your butt thoroughly kicked, do you not? You may have already kicked your own butt with dance class, yoga class, brutal hikes, standard gym visits, athletic sex, or what have you, but have you done it on a trampoline? At Air Conditioning classes, use the power More
South Beach Harbor Pier 40 map San Francisco South of Market
Saturdays, Sundays, 11 a.m.
If Hollywood ever tries its hand at Escape from San Francisco, we hope there are kayaks involved. There just aren’t enough kayaks in action films, you know? We imagine the little boats riding a tsunami, hurtling toward the bad guys who have taken Coit Tower hostage, somehow managing to defuse More
