If you're not the Halloween type, the San Francisco Fall Antiques Show is coming to your rescue this weekend. SF native and international fashion celeb Derek Lam (who is also in town to preview his Resort and Spring 2011 collections at Barneys) will host the annual event. After their glittering, opening gala—which benefits the amazing Enterprise for High School Students—this Wednesday the 27th, dozens of fine art, rug, jewelry and book dealers from around the world will descend onto Fort Mason.
From October 28-31, myriad exhibitions and lectures will take you far, far away from the costumed masses. This year's lecture theme is "Chinoiserie Chic," so check out a series of talks on how Chinese culture has helped take the Western World's art scene to the next level. One special event you won't want to miss takes place on Friday, where visitors can view the award-winning, futuristic Tesla Roadster.
