The San Francisco SPCA has, understandably, decided that with a little liquor in your system, you won't be able to look that sad, homeless puppy in the eyes and say "No."

We have to say, that's a pretty damn good reason for the local animal shelter to offer free alcohol and free food along with free cats and dogs at its weekend-long adoptathon, which starts Friday.

How much freer can this get?

Come claim your pet starting 1 p.m. on Friday, and then stick around to celebrate your new union at the SPCA's cocktail party that night, which will include some good music.

On Saturday, adoptions start again at 10 a.m., followed by a bake sale and other cool stuff. And then on Sunday, the shelter will host an

animal behavior Q&A session from 2 to 3 p.m., with adoptions available until 6 p.m.

"Our goal is to find homes for at least 150 animals during the adoptathon," said Jennifer Scarlett, SF SPCA co-president.

So stop being selfish and head down to the SPCA this weekend and give one of those poor cats and dogs a new home.

  • 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.'"
