Sex, Drugs and Rock ‘n’ Roll in SF This Weekend?

Or wine and antiques in the East Bay? You decide.

By The Editors

Blame BART. 

With the Transbay Tube closing for track work from end-of-service Friday night to Sunday night, traveling between the East Bay and City this weekend will be, well, slightly more complicated than getting from the Bronx to Coney Island in a 1978 Walter Hill film.

Ergo, we’ve come up with two itineraries: one on each side of the Bay.

One naughty.

One nice.

The choice is yours.


Self-identified “love bird and mermaid” Bo Vixxen joins the Red Hots Burlesque team at BeatBox — anyone looking for the hottest redhead in the city should make this his first stop.

Tired of Tinder? Want to make sure your relationship needs are in alignment with your cannabis intake? The app is called High There, it offers 420-character profiles and it’ll help you find a new, uh, buddy to hang out with for the evening.

Get another look at the life of the tragic chanteuse at  “Amy Winehouse: A Family Portrait,” which just opened at the Contemporary Jewish Museum.


If you haven’t checked out the new summer menu at Flora in Uptown Oakland, this is the weekend — order the Calvados Julep, made with the French apple brandy that’s bar manager Matty McGee’s favorite spirit.

Forget Napa: Support winemakers working closer to home with the East Bay Vintners Alliance, producing grapes in Oakland, Berkeley and Alameda at their Urban Wine Experience in Jack London Square.

It’s the first Sunday of the month, which means we’ll be sifting for mid-century bar carts at Alameda Point.
