Two Incredibly Noteworthy Movie Marathons

Wes Anderson movies: great. Robin Williams: also great. News that there’s both a Wes Ander-thon all weekend at the Roxie and a Robin Williams fest at SoMa StrEat Food on Sunday: insert overly enthusiastic word of choice here.

LONG, STRANGE TRIPP

There’s Ping-Pong, Beer and Birthday Cake

A fifth-birthday party might very well evoke images of cake and five-year-olds. But when it’s American Tripps’ fifth-birthday party, which happens on Friday, there’s ping-pong and DJs and delicious frothy beverages. And cake. There’s still cake.

Aug 12, 9pm-1am, $5 at door, Rickshaw Stop, 155 Fell St (between Franklin and Van Ness), 415-861-2011

Saturday

DRAFT DAY

A Great Big Beer Festival in Old Oakland

Here’s the part of Saturday where you stroll around drinking beers from breweries like Temescal and Evil Twin at the Oakland Beer Festival. Maybe you head into the Trappist for a sour bitter fest, or to Umami Mart for a Matsuri fest. Basically, you’re drinking beer in Oakland on Saturday.

Aug 13, noon-5pm, $30-$55, corner of 9th and Washington St, Old Oakland, tickets here

Tacos + Luchadores = Your Saturday
WRESTLE MANIA

Tacos + Luchadores = Your Saturday

Well, looks like you’re going to a La Cocina–hosted taco festival on Pier 70 this weekend. It also looks like you’ll be watching masked Mexican wrestlers depicting good versus evil while eating tacos and drinking mezcal. We don’t make the rules.

Sunday
A Very Acceptable Pool Party at the Phoenix
ADULT SWIM

A Very Acceptable Pool Party at the Phoenix

A pool party with a great DJ and live bands and barbecue and drinks. You get to go to one of those this weekend at the Phoenix. Just thought we’d let you know that before you carried on living your life without knowing that.

Lauren Sloss requires a climate that allows her to wear motorcycle boots daily. She likes her bourbon neat and her martinis dirty, and would like to be the lead singer of a punk rock band when she grows up.
