SUMMER LOVIN'

A Beer-Paired Screening of Wet Hot American Summer

The classic Balboa Theater is screening Wet Hot American Summer tomorrow night and pairing it with exclusive-to-the-event Anchor beers like Skylab Is Falling Hazy IPA and Camp Firewood Smoked Stout. Puns are way more tolerable when they're beer.

Suit Up. You're Going to a Rainforest Party.
GARDEN PARTY

Suit Up. You're Going to a Rainforest Party.

For your fancy-date-night consideration, the Conservatory of Flowers is throwing a party called Amazonia. Basically, it's a rainforest-themed affair with Amazonian plants, cocktails, live music and Capoeira demonstrations. No one ever sees the Capoeira coming.

Friday
Susie Cakes Comes to the FiDi. Deliciousness Ensues.
SWEET SENSATION

Susie Cakes Comes to the FiDi. Deliciousness Ensues.

If you hated having to schlep all the way to the Marina every time you wanted to get a friend a birthday cupcake, rejoice, for Susie Cakes has opened a second location in the FiDi. And we're rejoicing...

Saturday
Escape From (Fake) Alcatraz
WAX SEASON

Escape From (Fake) Alcatraz

Okay, so bear with us here: Madame Tussauds (yes, that one) has just opened their first escape room (getting better) and it's themed after an escape from Alcatraz (wax Clint Eastwood knew you'd be on board in the end).

Sunday
Beer and BBQ and Summer and You
BREWS FLASH

Beer and BBQ and Summer and You

There's arguably nothing better on a lazy Sunday than beer and BBQ. Which is why Original Pattern Brewing is throwing a Sunday BBQ series throughout the summer with the help of Sticky Business Barbeque. Consider your next 10 Sundays booked. 

What Else Is New

Joe Starkey is the tallest person in the room 90% of the time. He enjoys liquors that aren’t smoky, dive bars that are, and has a vague dread that someone, somewhere might be having more fun than him.
