Things to do for March 04, 2010

The Weekender

Dollar Oysters, Sumo Hour and Sexy Roller Derby

The weekend will not cry in front of Barbara Walters.

Thursday
Sumo Hour at Umami
STEPPING OUT OF THE RING

Sumo Hour at Umami

The guys at Umami are rolling $4 sushi, dishing out Wagyu beef sliders and pouring bottles of wine at half price—and they're calling it sumo hour. We're not sure if any wrestling will be involved, but that's a risk we're willing to take.

Nightly, 5:30-7pm, Umami, 2909 Webster St (at Union), 415-346-3431

Divisadero Art Walk
CULTURE CLUB

Divisadero Art Walk

We feel obligated to mention that there will be art on this art walk. But with $1 oysters at Bar Crudo, $2 PBR at Madrone, half-off pizza at Little Star (from 5 to 7pm) and two-for-one bottles of sake at Tsunami, you won't be obligated to play the role of the starving artist.

Friday
Southern Exposure's Monster Drawing Rally
SKETCHED OUT

Southern Exposure's Monster Drawing Rally

Drop by Friday and you'll look on as roughly 100 different artists take hour-long shifts sketching whatever comes to mind. With craft brews and tacos on hand, we're predicting a fair amount of carnitas still lifes.

Mar 5, 6-11pm, $10, The Verdi Club, 2424 Mariposa St (at 17th), 415-861-9199

Bi-Rite Creamery's Ice Cream Window Opens
SCREAMING FOR SOFT-SERVE

Bi-Rite Creamery's Ice Cream Window Opens

You may have noticed that this cult scoop shop just tripled their indoor seating (to all of 10). But the action's going to be at the new sidewalk window, where they just started swirling soft-serve. For now, you'll have easy access to vanilla and chocolate, but know that salted caramel is in the works. It's history in the making, folks.

Saturday
Bay Bombers Roller Derby Season Opener
ON TRACK

Bay Bombers Roller Derby Season Opener

If you've never been up close to witness the pageantry, brutality and unchecked glamour of roller derby, Saturday's game pits local girls the Bay Bombers against the Brooklyn Red Devils. We have it on good word that Apple co-founder Steve "The Woz" Wozniak will be in the house. We assume that means he'll be trackside and not on skates...

Mar 6, 8pm, $10, Kezar Pavilion, 755 Stanyan St, 510-636-9300, tickets here
