Events galore this weekend!

St. Patricks Day Parade This weekend is shaping up to be a great kick off to all this extra daylight we have back! We’ve got the St. Patricks Day Parade if you like watching brightly dressed people stuck in traffic. The parade kicks off at 2nd and Market at 11:30 and travels down to Civic Center Plaza where hilarity, shows and drinking will ensue.

If green really isn’t your color you can head north to the Napa Valley Mustard Festival and try the mustards of the world. I personally haven’t been to this even but a few of my neighbors go every year and give the event two big thumbs up. This one’s a bit pricey though with tickets costing $35 at the door but if you want to avoid the green beer and partygoers this one might be for you. [upcoming]

Always a Bridesmaid and never a Bride? Saturday is also the 10th annual Brides of March which is run by the San Francisco Cacophony Society. All you really need is a wedding dress to participate.

As the sun sets hordes of avid photographers will be heading to 111 Minna for the Flickr Turns 4 party which starts at 6pm and goes till 9pm. [upcoming]

Anonymous And my personal favorite is the Church of Scientology protest starting at 11am. Grab your Guy Fawkes and Optimus Prime masks and head to the corner of Montgomery and Washington for hours of Rickrolling fun and mayhem and if the cops come you can just run into the St. Patricks Day crowd. More info on the protest.

If you need a primer on why the CoS is being protested Laughing Squid has a very nice comprehensive listing of videos that you should check out when you have an hour or so to kill.

    Don’t be afraid! We’re from the internet!

    We are legion.

    Expect us.

    Definitely not afraid. Been looking forward to it for quite some time.

    Scientology… aren’t they just an obscure harmless Sci-Fi loving dead author cult that thrives on hassling I mean uh, helping analyze people out front of Macy’s?
