Saturday around the Bay
I hate it when there are too many fun things to do on one night, and this Saturday certainly fits that bill.
- Over in the Mission, Otsu, a store devoted to stylish vegan clothing, shoes and accessories, is throwing a party (FREE, 6:00 – 8:00 p.m.) to celebrate their second birthday and the release of a new eco-friendly datebook. Get there early for treats from The Bakery Box, makers of an amazing vegan chocolate cake that’s better than most of the full-fat chocolate cake I’ve had at local bakeries.
- Across town, the 540 Club in the Inner Richmond is the setting for a Matt Gonzalez-organized party (FREE admission but you have to buy your own beverages, 7:00-10:00 p.m.) in support of re-electing district 1 supervisor Jake McGoldrick. The evening’s festivities include the excellent beer and music you’d expect from this neighborhood bar, plus an appearance by Jello Biafra.
- And in Oakland, Bitch magazine is celebrating the release of their latest issue, Fake, with an evening of women-friendly music (9:00 onward) at the Mile High Club. This event is a fundraiser for the magazine, with a requested $10-$20 donation.
