Your probably realizing the chances of BART running Monday morning are slim so why not make the most of your weekend.
There’s a lot of excitement for the art opening of Three Worlds: Myth,s Bricks, Prints at the Mission Cultural Center for Latino Arts. It will be the first exhibit coordinated by the Gallery’s new curator Mauricio Pineda. Only $5.
But don’t forget time is running out to see the screen print works by Melanie Cervantes and Jesus Barraza at Galería de la Raza on 24th Street. We introduced you to the artists and their work earllier this month with this video. This exhibit is free and closes Saturday.
If your feeling like me and my Mission Eyes partner Stefania Rousselle your ready to try something out of the ordinary. Tonight we will be at the Verdi Club where Litquake will throw a Goth Hop to tribute to the American writer, poet, and literary critic Edgar Allan Poe who turns 200 this October. We will be there dressed to impress the dead.
Satudray the 15th
We are all for staying in the neighborhood but talk on the street is that the place to be Saturday night is all the way down Mission at the Yerba Buena Center For the Arts. They are hosting their first ever Late Night Party. Enjoy cheap drinks, food, and music by Cuban surf rock band, The Cuban Cowboys, the 21st century tribal shimmy of Mezklah, and KPFA’s DJ Aztec Parrot.
But before you get ready to go out make sure you stop by the UCSF Parking Lot on 17th St, between Shotwell and Folsom where residents will be joining from 11a.m- 2p.m to show support for affordable housing and open spaces in the surrounding area. There will be music, art ,and activities for Kids. Sponsors include MEDA, CARECEN, and PODER.
Sunday the 16th
Join the San Francisco Bicycle Coalition and fellow cyclists for a moderately-challenging, scenic ride to a tailgate cookout at Precita Park. No fee to participate, just bring a dish to share at the potluck. Details here.
Hope to see you around this weekend, Amanda
