Put Your Party Pants On With These Must-Hit, Pre-Memorial Day Events

main
If you're like us, you're probably itching for the moment the clock strikes 5 p.m. this Friday. Memorial Day weekend could not get here sooner, right? Well, since we're only about halfway there, we've got some can't-miss events so you can party your way into summer without missing a beat. From shopping gorgeous jewels for your weekend away to stocking up on some healthy face products, make room for these stellar shindigs.
Uniqlo DIP Celebration
One of our closet's BFFs, Uniqlo, is ready to party with you and some pretty cool designers from around the world. The brand's DIP Celebration (which stands for Designer Invitational Project) grants some serious access to top brands such as Suno NY, Plumpynuts, Michael Bastian, and many more. Plus, the event will be hosted by a slew of S.F. style setters, from Annabel Ly of Blushing Ambition to power pinner Alex Chrisman. Okay, this soirée officially makes Thursday the new Friday.
When: Thursday, May 23, 8 to 9 p.m.
Where: Uniqlo, 111 Powell Street (between Ellis and O'Farrell streets); 877-486-4756.
RSVP: here!
Lauren Wolf Jewelry Trunk Show
Mastering her design skills amongst the mountains of Mexico, Lauren Wolf's exquisite pieces are a worldly fusion of jaw-dropping, wearable pieces. This Saturday, you can meet the entrancing Oakland-based designer while you ogle her travel-inspired collections at Rand + Statler. From perfectly edgy pearls to barely there stones, Wolf knows just what will have us putting a ring on it!
When: Saturday, May 25, 1 to 5 p.m.
Where: Rand + Statler, 425 Hayes Street (between Gough and Octavia streets); 415-634-0881.
BellJar Spring Beauty Event
Treating our bodies to the utmost natural and healthy skin care splurges is a non-negotiable! BellJar is known for being a one-stop shop for slews of organic beauty products to get your glow on — not to mention a curated offering of gorgeous attire. Join the boutique this Saturday for the ultimate beauty fête, and rub shoulders with the ladies behind such brands as Naked Eye Beauty, L'Aromatica Perfume, and Elizabeth Street Cosmetics. Once you're all dolled up, complete the look by taking 20% off all new spring wares!
When: Saturday, May 25, 12 to 7 p.m.
Where: BellJar, 3187 16th Street (between Guerrero and Valencia streets); 415-626-1749.
Bluxome Street Winery Meet Market
To Bay Area dwellers, wine drinking is more than a mere pastime — it's a lifestyle. Which is why we're stoked to join fellow winos at the Bluxome Street May Meet Market this coming Saturday. The Bluxome Street Winery will be pouring its pinots and chardonnays, whilst you bounce between the local food artisans, including Luke's Local and McVicker Pickles. Sounds like our kind of darty (our slang for day party!) to really get the weekend started.
When: Saturday, May 25, noon to 5 p.m.
Where: Bluxome Street Winery, 53 Bluxome Street (between Brannan and Townsend streets); 415-543-5353.
Grease Sing-A-Long At Castro Theatre
No introduction needed, and possibly the coolest event in the city: The Castro Theatre's Grease Sing-A-Long. Because you could never tire from watching your very first crush (Travolta, obvi) and his hopelessly devoted babe belt out "Summer Lovin'" on the big screen! You will no doubt be crooning the lyrics that we all know and love, and maybe even get some cardio in with those '50s dance moves. Polyester onesie and leather bomber jacket not included.
When: Sunday, May 26, 2:30 and 8 p.m.
Where: Castro Theatre, 429 Castro Street (between 17th and 18th streets); 415-621-6120.
Cost: $15; buy tickets here!
