The Weekender

A Masquerade Ball in a Winery Here, a Sexy-Zombie Party There...

The weekend is dressing up as a sexy weekend.

Saturday
DJs and Maybe a DeLorean at Stag
’80s ENOUGH

DJs and Maybe a DeLorean at Stag

Bunch of ’80s-themed stuff happening at Stag this weekend. Peking duck. Chinese chicken salad. Things like that. And if that’s too much ’80s for you, there’s also a DJ playing Billy Idol and a rumor that the DeLorean from Back to the Future will be there. Wait...

Coppola Goes Full Masquerade Ball
VALLEY OF THE BALLS

Coppola Goes Full Masquerade Ball

The place is the Coppola winery barrel room. The theme is Sleepy Hollow meets The Great Gatsby. The fortune-teller, DJ, costume contest and Halloween-themed lounge are... well, they’re just nice bonuses, really. Anyway, winery Halloween party. Make it proud.

Tuesday
Because of Course Here Comes Dracula
VAMPIRE WEEKDAY

Because of Course Here Comes Dracula

You’re cordially invited to the Balboa Theatre next week for two consecutive nights of “updated” classic-horror-film screenings like The Cabinet of Dr. Caligari and the 1922 film Nosferatu. It’s about Dracula. Who is a scary man. He’s not even a man. He’s a vampire. It’s all very chilling.

Oct 29-30, 7:30pm, $10, Balboa Theatre, 3630 Balboa St (at 38th), 415-221-8184

Next Thursday
Why Halloween Is Great
NOIR FOR THE COURSE

Why Halloween Is Great

A candelabra sits atop a grand piano. The Phantom of the Opera is projected on a wall. There’s a salted popcorn ball and a soju cocktail headed straight for your face. What we’ve just done here is unraveled the scene at Noir Lounge’s masquerade party. Sort of.

This Is the Only Zombie Thing. Promise.
CLUB DEAD

This Is the Only Zombie Thing. Promise.

You knew you weren’t getting out of this without some type of undead-related scenario. And by “scenario,” we mean this costume-required zombie party at the Clift. It’s about time someone threw a zombie party.
