Everybody loves a good street party, and seeing as they’ve got an event space inside their urban winery, the vintners at Bluxome Street Winery are no exception. Because their little corner of Soma is a less-than-heavily trafficked alley, it only makes sense that the Bluxome team could shut it down and turn it out.

This Saturday, May 2, from noon to 6 p.m., there will be “incredible wine, epic eats, and boisterous diversions” for the third year in a row, as the eponymous thoroughfare becomes glutted with bands, food trucks, barrels of wine and sangria, and beer from Local Brewing Co. Me So Hungry’s sliders, po’ boys from Sam’s Chowdermobile, traitorously good eggs from Benedict Arnold’s Brunch Truck and tasty treats from Frozen Kuhsterd will be keeping bellies full as people play skeeball and Whack-a-Mole.

The only caveat is that Thursday was beautiful, today is lovely, and rare is the three-day streak of hot weather once fog season rolls around. Before you say “Ruh-roh” and 23-skidoo to the deep East Bay, just know that inside, the mirth and joviality continue apace, with a photobooth, the Giants game, the Kentucky Derby, and (duh) more wine. So don’t panic!

It’s a free event, and to prove that it’s all ages, there will be a face painter and a balloon artist. But this is San Francisco, so it’s entirely possible the adults will be elbowing children out of the face-painting line. The event page is sepia-toned in keeping with the old-timey feel, but everything else about this party look colorful indeed.

Bluxome Street Winery Block Party, Saturday, May 2, noon - 6 p.m., Bluxome between Fourth and Fifth Streets.

  • clipping at Brava Theater Sept. 11
    Sub Pop recording artists 'clipping.' brought their brand of noise-driven experimental hip hop to the closing night of 2016's San Francisco Electronic Music Fest this past Sunday. The packed Brava Theater hosted an initially seated crowd that ended the night jumping and dancing against the front of the stage. The trio performed a set focused on their recently released Sci-Fi Horror concept album, 'Splendor & Misery', then delved into their dancier and more aggressive back catalogue, and recent single 'Wriggle'. Opening performances included local experimental electronic duo 'Tujurikkuja' and computer music artist 'Madalyn Merkey.'"
