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
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
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

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
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
The Stud 399 Ninth St. map San Francisco South of Market
Fridays
The unGoogleable inheritor of the Trannyshack art-drag scepter is known as Some Thing; each Friday brings a new theme via semi-pun. It could be simple, such as Some Thing Good, or it could be A Li’l Sumptin’ Some Thing, which is funny but what are you going to wear? The More
Fridays, Sundays, 9:45 a.m.
To our recurring surprise, many locals never get the idea to visit Alcatraz, because traveling by boat to an island to walk around cellblocks is just something they don't like do. How come? Because tourists get that idea, every day, by the shorts-wearing boatloads. Here's your solution: The Gardens of 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

More than 32 food trucks will pull up to Fort Mason for Friday night’s Off the Grid Food Truck Party. Off the Grid is sort of like a food court for nomads, gatherings of extreme culinary variety, with live music and full bars. If you get there early enough, you’ll More
First Friday of every month, 9 p.m.
In the 1990s, we had Incredibly Strange Wrestling with El Homo Loco and the Poontangler riling up beer-swilling miscreants in SoMa. These days, Hoodslam carries the torch for underground wrestling in a warehouse in West Oakland. Like ISW, Hoodslam makes no qualms about the nature of the fight: This absurdist More
Legion of Honor 100 34th Ave. map San Francisco Richmond (Outer)
Tuesdays-Sundays
The Legion of Honor today reopens its incredible French period room, The Salon Doré. The type of room, particular to pre-revolutionary France, was called the salon de compagnie, or salon for conversation. "There was no eating," explains the Legion's curator of European decorative arts and sculpture, Martin Chapman. "They More
