Weekend To Do List

November 4, 2010

Catch legendary local author Armistead Maupin reading his latest opus, Mary Ann in Autumn: A Tales of the City Novel at Rakestraw Books in Danville at 7 pm tonight. Tickets are $40 for individuals, $45 for a pair. Each ticket includes a copy of Maupin’s latest and ticket proceeds benefit local non-profit Not In Our Town.

Come say hi and browse Maris’ wares at Art Murmur on Friday. She’ll be vending on 23rd street between Telegraph and Valley streets. Pick up some custom crafted jewelry, greeting cards and curiosities as early holiday gifts!

Literary minds unite at Bookfest 2010 hosted by the Jewish Community Center of San Francisco.   Featuring signings and discussions with novelistic luminaries such as Myla Goldberg and Gary Shteyngart, Bookfest offers free admission if you get your tickets here!

The SF Playhouse will be presenting Cormac McCarthy’s The Sunset Limited this weekend. The account of a very New York encounter – two men meet on a subway and engage in a verbal duel over the meaning of life – The Sunset Limited is a play in novel form (sounds vaguely Dostoyevskian, no?). Half price tickets are still available for the Saturday matinee show here.

Indie Mart will be celebrating their last event (and the last great weather days!) of the year with an awesome line-up featuring our buds Swanifant and lots of other outstanding local musicians. So go grab a vintage sweater to snuggle up with in the coming cold times and hear some tunes while you’re at it!

Speaking of retail therapy, the Rickshaw Stop will be hosting the 7th annual holiday sale of renegade apparel company, Gama Go. Admission is free and Gama Go will be offering 75% off on their clever t-shirts, bar wares, accessories and gifts.
