This weekend brings you gorgy threads to shop, delicate sushi to sample, and the musicality of the King's of Pop. We're not sorry for the amount of fun you're about to experience.
What: If you missed the legendary Purple Rain king when he surprised the Bay Area with multiple shows this week, perk up at this jam session dedicated to the two kings of pop: Prince and Michael Jackson. Dance the night away to "Thriller" and "Raspberry Beret" for an unbeatable $5.

Ladies, how could you miss it? Answer: you can't.

Cheers to Chicas
What: Toast to Women's History Month at Nido, an Oakland restaurant that's launched a special celebratory drinks menu in collaboration with Mujeres Unidas y Activas (MUA). Each cocktail is inspired by a different Latina icon, including author Isabelle Allende and Presidential Medal of Freedom honoree Dolores Huerta. We can't think of a better way to fete Latina ladies than with shots of tequila and mezcal. Salud!
