Daytime Realness

Third Sunday of every month, 3 p.m.
El Rio 3158 Mission, San Francisco Mission/ Bernal Heights

, , , , , ,
We always think about drag performers when we hear Gillian Welch's song "Barroom Girls." Especially the part that goes, "She tosses and turns because the sun is unkind." Because holy shit, when you're not sure if your tuck is tight enough, or whether your beard's growing through your foundation, or even of the quality of the foundation itself, the sun can be plenty unkind. These are the reasons to admire, not just love, the moxie of Daytime Realness, a tea dance in the sense that it occurs at teatime, but even better/worse, it's held outdoors on the Mission District bar's famous back patio. Heklina and Hard French's DJ Carnita present drag performances, lit by the sun, and dance sets, lit by the sun. Luckily there are bitchin' chicken and waffles to ease the pain/your health. One part of Welch's song is true here, though: "All of the colors go 'round in a swirl/ When you dance in the arms of the barroom girls." 415-282-3325

Sunday Open Gym

Sundays, 5 p.m.
Eureka Valley Recreation Center 100 Collingwood, San Francisco Castro/ Noe Valley

Large American cities during the industrial age had amateur baseball leagues made up of blue-collar workers who created their own little societies unseen by the general populace. Men formed their teams — representing factories, power plants, and other facilities — developed rivalries, and had playoffs and championship series just like the pros. Some of them, in fact, went on to play professionally. For nearly three decades, San Francisco has had a largely unknown tour de force of amateur sports in the San Francisco Gay Basketball Association and its Castro League. Like most organized amateur leagues, it’s composed of dedicated people who take the sport seriously and fight hard to win. To be fair, though, it does include some levity. Looking at the team names will tell you that right away: the All-City Ballers, Frisco Force, the Backdoor Pass, the Guardians of the Hole. Step into this world this evening at Sunday Open Gyms. Stuart Leung, the association’s acting commissioner, says 20 to 35 people turn out for this practice session each Sunday. Anyone is welcome (gay, straight, bi, or other), and it’s a chance to socialize, exercise, play ball, and see where it takes you. Leung says people of all experience levels show up, and games are conducted on two courts. Some participants have never played, while others played in high school or college, and a few have done time in the pros. Leung says most people who play in the Castro League got their start at a Sunday open session. Leung says to bring a light-colored as well as a dark T-shirt, so when teams are chosen you’ll be able to tell the good guys from the bad guys. 415-831-6810
