So, you’ve said peace out to the week and are welcoming the warm weather with open arms (hooray for park days). If you’re as excited as we are about the onslaught on sunny days ahead, listen up. Remember how we told you we have a handy guide for keeping your weekday schedule packed? Well, we weren’t fibbing. Here are five can’t-miss events, so you can keep your spirits up throughout the week, too. Just because the weekend is coming to a close doesn’t mean the good times are halted.
Métier Antique Jewelry Trunk Show
One of our fave Union Square shops is getting a pretty sweet selection of imported jewels. Featuring a handful of unique adornments from England, the store will display the assortment of one-of-a-kind baubles, and also offer tasty treats. The collection is not one to miss, so we highly suggest heading down there to peep the pieces. You can count us in.
When: Friday, May 4, 10 a.m. to 6 p.m.
Where: Metier, 355 Sutter Street (between Stockton Street and Grant Avenue); 415-989-5395.
Bianca Starr Spring Forward Fashion Show
Indulge in a cool night of fashion and libations at the swanky Clift Hotel. Four S.F. boutiques will be featured — from Sui Generis to Wonderland, while DJ J-Boogie spins beats. If you’re looking for a reason to get vamped up and hit the town, this is probably it. We’re always down for a local fashion show, and this sounds like a rad way to spend Thursday.
When: Thursday, May 3, 9 p.m.
Where: Clift Hotel, 495 Geary Street (at O’Farrell Street); 800-406-6690.
Photobooth Film Camera Basics Workshop
Ever wanted to delve into the art of photography, but weren’t sure where to start? Well, Photobooth is here to help. The guys over at the Tintype studio are assisting camera novices with a photo-taking 101 class. Bring a basic camera to this course, and you’ll learn the ins and outs of the equipment. A pretty sweet way to start a hobby, or brush up on your skills— either way, it’s free, so why not?
When: Wednesday, May 2, 7 to 9 p.m.
Where: Photobooth, 1193 Valencia Street (at 23rd Street); 415-824-1248.
Studio Choo Pop-Up Shop At West Elm
We don’t know about you guys, but now that spring is in full swing, we’re all about outfitting our home with color-soaked flora. And on Saturday, locally loved Studio Choo florists are holing it up at West Elm in Emeryville, and slinging their pretty pieces. But you better hurry, they will only be on-site for three hours.
When: Saturday, May 5, 12 to 3 p.m.
Where: West Elm, 5602 Bay Street at Shellmound Street, Emeryville; 510-655-1367.
Buckminster Fuller Meets The Hippies In Golden Gate Park
Playing hooky on Tuesday? We have the perfect outing for you. The SFMOMA is showing a flick about the peeps that populate Hippie Hill in Golden Gate Park. So, if you want to soak in images of S.F. in the ‘60s on a random weekday, here you go. The best part? The museum and movie entrance admissions are free. You can thank us later.
When: Tuesday, May 1, 12 p.m.
Where: SFMOMA, The Schwab Room, Ground Level, 151 Third Street (at Mission Street); 415-357-4035.
