Every few years, Britain’s royal family gives us another opportunity to actively not give a shit about one of their weddings.
It’s about that time again, so here’s a list of cooler shit to do than watch Meghan Markle defect from Team America.
Give your out of towner friends something to see
When: Saturday May 19th, 8 A.M. - 1 P.M.
Where: Golden Gate Park and elsewhere in SF
Why: It’s Bay to Breakers, y’all! Challenge that new-to-SF transplant friend who scoffs that he’s seen it all, because he hasn’t been to Bay to Breakers and doesn’t know what a naked man in a tutu looks like. Or maybe he does. There’s only one way to find out, eh? Food and a Michael Jackson tribute band will all be part of the post-marathon festivities.
We love you very matcha
When: Sunday, May 20th, 11 A.M. - 5 P.M.
Where: Spark Social SF
Why: Hold your horses, matcha lovers, ‘cause Spark Social is about to make you very, very happy. Or, as they say, it’s time to par-tea! Feast on matcha cookies, ice cream, cream puffs, waffles, doughnuts and more. Additional savory food trucks will be present to make even more of your dreams come true, and your Instagram followers will be green with envy! // 601 Mission Bay Boulevard North, China Basin, tickets are $6.50.
Get cultured in Jack London Square
When: Saturday, May 19th from 12 P.M. - 5 P.M.
Where: Jack London Square, Oakland
Why: Join more than 40 Northern California wineries as they gather at Jack London Square to offer tastings, as well as small eats, craft beer, cider, live music, artists and more. A portion of the proceeds from each ticket sold will benefit the Stride Center, which jumpstarts careers in technology to empower economic and social mobility for local individuals and communities. We’ll drink to that. // Tickets start at $45.
