When it’s Wednesday night and you’re at home asking the interwebs what to do in SF this weekend, you probably get a bunch of touristy suggestions, like, walk across the Golden Gate Bridge, Pier 39, Mission walking tours, etc. Those are all awesome, but if you call SF home, how many times can you see the seals by the pier and go to Crissy Field before you vomit with wholesome weekend fun. So put on your party outfit and beer goggles, here are a few of the best events in June for people that live here.
June 4, from 1:00 PM to 5:00 PM @ Fort Mason
Grab your sunblock and Teva sandals and get down here for a new summer series of silent dance parties at Fort Mason. You will all look like a ridiculous bobbing wave of ironic t-shirts in headphones, but in your ears there is an epic party happening and you’re about to break into the running man.
San Francisco is notorious for being a hard place to meet new people, hence Nametag Day. A day that comes around once a year where you get out of your apartment, pack into bars, and actually meet people IRL. A concept after our own pickle hearts. So if you want to meet other awesome people like yourself RSVP and go drink with strangers who want to talk to other strangers.
RIckshaw Stop, June 4th 9:30pm – 2am
A millennium dance party featuring the era’s best pop, electronic, hip-hop, and r&b. Get ready to break out your stunna shades, crop tops, v-necks, and guyliner and get your freak on. Blocks of music from the 90’s-2000’s will be played til 2am, reminding you why J.T. leaving NSYNC wasn’t the worst thing ever. DJ’s will take you on a year-by-year voyage spinning all the hits and guilty pleasures. Oh and did we mention it’s for a good cause? Proceeds will go to SF Society Ties, a group that raises funds and awareness for the Leukemia & Lymphoma Society.
In The Tenderloin outside of Hastings Law, Thursday Jun 16th
If you’ve never heard of this, you have to check it out. Watch dancers scale down buildings and tip toe on roof tops while a loud speaker blasts modern classical and experimental music. There are night performances with large scale light shows and glow-in-the-dark dancers doing pirouettes and adagios underneath. This incredibly vibrant neighborhood is fighting gentrification and creating a dialog with art and movement, so bring a chair and get ready to look up with your mouth open for a few hours.
