Monday Morning Hangover: Bay to Breakers, Oysterfest & More

Posted By on Mon, May 17, 2010 at 9:53 AM

Good morning! How's that Bay to Breakers hangover treating you? Oh, you woke up in a cardboard box wearing half of your Where's Waldo costume and you're still drunk? Well, you should probably find a place to take a shower. You're late for work.

The race turned costumed-drunken boozefest rolled through the city last weekend, replete with people dressed as watermelons and naughty schoolgirls, and the occasional serious runner.

The booze also flowed at the 11th Annual S.F. Oysterfest, but out of taps, not bongs. Bivalve lovers slurped up oysters and took in performances by Cake, the Ravonettes, Thao & the Get Down Stay Down, and more.

Meanwhile, at the California Academy of Sciences, Fool's Gold played the Dawn Festival, an eclectic party in celebration of the Jewish holiday Shavout.

 The Academy of Sciences wasn't the only museum that threw a party last weekend. The SFMOMA celebrated it's 75th birthday with cake, dancing and music provided by the Brazilian Girls.

Now wipe the body paint off and prepare to face the week.

  • 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.'"
