The First Weekend of 2018: Here is What Your Itinerary Says
This weekend is the first weekend of...well, the rest of your weekends.
Not saying that this weekend will define the tone of your subsequent 2018 weekends or anything, but maybe you should just be happy you’re not a victim of the bomb cyclone and survived that 4.4 rager on Wednesday night. Here’s what’s on deck.
Trix aren’t just for kids
When: Saturday, January 6th, 10:30 AM - 12 PM
Where: The New Parkway, Oakland
Why: Remember the joys of Saturday morning cartoons? This is that, but better, because there’s an all-you-can-eat cereal bar. Enjoy classic cartoons from decades past on the screen. The cartoon lineup won’t be announced till the day of, but rest assured it’ll be family friendly. // 474 24th St, Oakland, purchase tickets here
Beer is healthy when chugged on a yoga mat
When: Sunday, January 7th, 10 AM - 12 PM
Where: Laughing Monk Brewery
Why: This is perfect if you’re trying to ease into this whole “new year, new you” thing. Instructor Armando Luna will lead a 90 minute Bhakti yoga session that’s suitable for all levels - and then the beer gets broken out. Cool down will take place at the bar, which will have no fewer than 12 beers to choose from. Namaste, y’all. // 1439 Egbert Ave, Unit A, Portola Place, purchase tickets here.
No pants on days that end with a y
When: Sunday, January 7th
Where: Everywhere BART runs
Why: There’s Santacon, there’s St. Patrick’s Day, and then there’s No Pants Day on BART - the Bay Area’s other invitation to a hot mess. Please, please wear undies and socks. This event takes place in over 15 countries around the world and is hosted by prank collective Improv Everywhere. // It’s a free event, but BART fare is required. Follow @NoPantsSF on Twitter for live updates.
Take in a museum and whilst stroking your goatee
When: All weekend
Where: Sacramento to San Jose
Why: If you have a Bank of America or Merrill Lynch credit or debit card sitting in your pocket/wallet/bra, use it! This marks the first free weekend of 2018 that card holders can get free admission to museums including the de Young, the Legion of Honor, the Tech Museum of Innovation, the Oakland Museum of California, the Crocker Art Museum, the Computer History Museum, and the California Museum. // See the full list here.
