Thursday
Shinola Does Trivia Now. Huh...
TRIVIA PURSUIT

Shinola Does Trivia Now. Huh...

Let’s say you someway, somehow find yourself in or around Palo Alto tomorrow night. Wouldn’t it be great if, theoretically, Shinola was holding a football-themed trivia night with prizes and other general revelry? Oh, wait, that’s happening. Nothing theoretical to see here.

Jan 21, 7:30-9pm, Shinola, 261 Hamilton Ave (at Ramona), Palo Alto, 650-300-5350, RSVP here

Friday
San Francisco. The ’60s. Interesting.
LONG STRANGE TRIP

San Francisco. The ’60s. Interesting.

Ah, the ’60s. A time when San Francisco was, well... ’60s-y. Celebrate the era at The 1960s Revisited, which involves a panel discussion, a cocktail-forward reception and a bunch of general weirdness courtesy of the California Historical Society. Okay, so there’s that if you need it.

Animal Costumes, Meet Roller Skates
ANIMAL HOUSE

Animal Costumes, Meet Roller Skates

“All I want to do is put on an animal costume and roller-skate around.” That’s something you probably didn’t just think. Maybe you should have, though. Because Animal Night is coming to the Church of 8 Wheels, and animal onesies are encouraged. And now we’ve said the phrase “animal onesies are encouraged.”

Saturday
BYOB and Swing Dancing in the Mission
SWING HAS SPRUNG

BYOB and Swing Dancing in the Mission

Saturday night calls for some class. Some live jazz, perhaps. With a bunch of skilled swing dancers. Find both at the Bootleggers Ball, a BYOB swing dance party with live jazz and a dance lesson in case your Lindy Hop needs a little work. There’s always room for Lindy Hop improvement.
