If you hate bluegrass music, tons of people, and even more traffic, but you love rabbits, then you should definitely make your way to San Mateo County this weekend where there will be no International sailboat races and lots of cottontails galore.

On both Saturday and Sunday, the Peninsula Humane Society is asking you to come down to Burlingame and put your hands on its buns. Translation: Come adopt a friggin' bunny already.

To really entice you, the agency is slashing adoption fees for the rabbits by 50 percent, that includes spay and neutering. You'll also get a 10 percent discount on rabbit starter-kits. All told you could walk out of there with a bunny for just $20.

If you are worried about being a bad bunny owner, there will be volunteers on hand to help educate you on the rights of rabbits, including how to properly clip their nails. Believe it or not, you can train a rabbit. Who knew?

So stop being selfish and go adopt a rabbit that really needs a home. The event is at 1450 Rollins Rd. in Burlingame. Adoptions start at noon.

  • 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.'"
