March Madness is Back!
What: Oakland's Plank is gearing up for college basketball season with tons of food and drink offers to help you cheer on your favorite team. Special team-themed martinis are on the menu for $7 (representing Anaheim, Philadelphia, Chicago, Louisville, and Houston), while the new 10-inch Nacho Cheese Pizza is surprisingly delicious.

Every City Girls' Favorite Flats
What: Clear all of your Saturday plans! Our favorite local shoe designer Freda Salvador is having a sample sale— and you need to start preparing your mind, body, and wallet.

May the Odds Be Ever in Your Favor

Head to the Palace of Fine Arts this spring to see over 1,000 original props and costumes from the movies, as well as interactive exhibits, and an amazing collection of fan art. Get the behind the scenes scoop on what it took to create the blockbuster movies, and discover a new side to the incredible books that launched Jennifer Lawrence's career.
When: Runs through July 31st.

Vote With Your Throat
What: I think we can all agree that this particular election cycle has been one of the most thrilling and most frustrating in the history of our young country. Thankfully, Keystone has found a way for us to deal with the ups and downs of the political rollercoaster. The restaurant just released a new cocktail menu that embodies our favorite (and perhaps not so favorite) politicians. Head down there and order a Trump Card, Chillary Clinton, or Feel Tha Bern, and fire up the debate!
When: Open every day from 11:30am to 12am. Happy hour is from 4:30-6:30pm, and 10pm-12am.
Where: The Keystone (68 4th Street, San Francisco)
