What do house music, green beer, and the red carpet have in common; they're all competing fot the spotlight in San Francisco this week. There's no excuse to lead a boring existence when you're equipped with this hottest events list. We've even pulled an event you can attend with your favorite pooch.

Lorde

The royally famous sixteen-year-old Kiwi songstress makes her way to Oakland's Fox Theatre at the end of the month, so it's about time to close on those tickets you've been eyeing. The Grammy award-winning musician will belt out her Song of the Year for local audiences two nights in row - the perfect mid-week break if you ask us!

Wednesday and Thursday, 3/26 - 3/27 at Fox Theatre

Bark and Whine Ball

Who hasn't dreamed of dressing up with their dog and walking the red carpet? Okay, us neither, but 49ers cornerback Chris Culliver is doing it! Tickets to the event range from $20 - $5,000 and proceeds benefit animal welfare and inner city youth - paws for a cause.

Thursday, 3/13 at Fort Mason Center

Sassy City Chicks Shopping & Beauty Event

Shop, sip, and socialize at the ultimate girls' night out. $10 has never guaranteed so much glamour: on-site spa treatments, shopping, giveaways, and cocktails. What better way to prep for the weekend than with a little pampering and T.L.C.?

Thursday, 3/13 at Regency Center

St. Patty's Day Alley Party

With five years of food trucks, drink specials, and live DJ performances under their belt, the folks at Taverna Aventine prepare for the greenest holiday of the year. Pair your clam chowder with a whiskey ginger beer or a lobster roll with the premium cocktail of your choice, while hanging out in Jackson Square’s Hotaling Alley. Join the party when you get off work Friday and continue the festivities into Saturday morning!

Taste of Yountville Street Party

Looking to get out of the city for a little weekend fun? Wine Country's Yountville invites city folk to indulge in all that is delicious about their town. From the finest wines to famed local restaurants, guests from near and far will enjoy some of the most appetizing sips and bites for as little as $1. To add a bit of culture to the feast, the street fair hosts garden tours, art exhibits, and chef demos, too.

Friday through Sunday, 3/14 - 3/16 in Yountville, CA

Wolfgang Gartner

The electro-house DJ prepares to make city crowds move all weekend long. Having collaborated with music icons like Britney Spears, Black Eyed Peas, and Timbaland, Gartner was able to rally quite the following over the years. From Vegas to Coachella to San Francisco, this is one talent not to be missed.
