Star Wars Day, Metallica Night, Brewfest, and More Happening at Giants and A's Games

On Monday, baseball season kicked off with the Giants snatching a glorious 5-4 win against the D-Backs. What's more, the A's beat the Rangers 8-0. A nice kickoff to the 2015 season. And with that, you should check out the special events happening at AT&T Park and Coliseum during the season. Here are jut a few of our favorites:

Behold These "Radical" 3D Printed Works!

Newfangled 3D printing. It's a big deal. Not only has it raised issues of intellectual property rights — everything from medical tools to Disney figurines to fan-created art, all of which could be reproduced using an Autodesk 3D printer, have raised concern with big corporations) — but it was also a plot point on a recent episode of The Good Wife. If you haven't seen works created by three dimensional printers, now is your chance.

Bay Area Bikeshare Expanding to East Bay, Adding More Bikes

Back in 2013, the Bay Area Bikeshare system launched. Around 700 light blue bikes were set up around San Francisco and San Jose, available for people to rent for an hour or more to scoot about town. Two years later, the program, considered an astounding success with nearly a half million riders, plans on not only adding 7,000 more bikes but also expanding to the East Bay. Sweeeet.

Looking Back at Hunky Jesus, Happening This Sunday

One person's blasphemy is another person's tipsy Easter Sunday celebration in the park. For 36 years, the Sisters of Perpetual Indulgence have been sexualizing Mr. Christ on Easter Sunday via their wildly popular Hunky Jesus contest. From Yoga Jesus to Beverly Hills Jesus, people come from all over to sport their Lord and Savior sartorial finest. 

Stern Grove "Pop-Up" Concerts Coming to SF Hoods

Perhaps in a move inspired by SFMOMA On the Go, the modern art museum's sporadic art exhibits happening throughout SF while it undergoes renovations, the Stern Grove Festival will begin featuring noontime concert "pop-ups" in SF neighborhoods. 

AT&T Park: Second Most Expensive Baseball Stadium to Live By

For those of you who live by AT&T Park, like me, you'll be pleased or terrified to learn that the home of your San Francisco Giants is the second most expensive ballpark to reside by, coming right behind Boston's Fenway Park. It's surprising news, as the Mission Bay/South Beah/SoMa neighborhood turns into a drunken, bro-tastic mess after night games. 

The Courtyard, Off the Grid's First Permanent Home, Opens in Mission Rock

Off the Grid, the Bay Area's roaming mobile food court, opened their first-ever permanent market today—the Courtyard. Located within The Yard at Mission Rock, billed as a "pop-up shipping container village" for the gastronic set, the Courtyard joins Anchor Brewery, which opened in the same spot last week

Kevin Spacey Is Coming to Napa Valley's Festival del Sole (Swoon!)

Kevin Spacey, better known to you as President Francis Underwood, will be the headlining star and entertainer at this year's Napa Valley Festival del Sole gala. Each year, a major star highlights the festival. Last year, if you recall, it was Sophia Loren. This year, they've scored a major coup with Spacey, a Tony Award and two-time Oscar winner.
