Weekend Guide: Rock 'n Roll Half Marathon, Earth Hour, & Tiny House Movement


This weekend, get ready to run like a rock star, go dark for an hour, and rethink the tiny house.

Rock 'n Roll Half Marathon

Don your Bay to Breakers gear and rock out at this lighthearted half marathon, which runs from Ocean Beach across the Golden Gate Bridge and ending at the Civic Center, where you can party like a rock star at the post-run festival. If you haven't registered yet, make sure to do so at the health & fitness expo, since you're out of luck if you try to register on race day. Not much of a runner? Come support those more athletic than you, and take in costume that rival those seen at Bay to Breakers. Sunday, March 29: 6:30am. Race begins at Great Highway & Fulton (subject to change)

Go Dark for Earth Hour at Ghirardelli Square

Every year on the last Saturday of March, people across the globe turn acknowledge Earth Hour by turning off lights in their homes and businesses. This year, Ghirardelli will be hosting a dark chocolate party in the dark, complete with candlelit yoga, activities, and dark chocolate tastings (naturally).  Saturday, March 28: 6pm - 9:30pm. Ghirardelli Square, 900 North Point (Fisherman's Wharf)

Tiny House Movement BBQ in the Mission

One things SF residents can all appreciate is getting a lot out of a little space. The team behind Tiny House, Giant Journey and Yerdle joined forces to host a Q&A, complete with tasty BBQ, in an al fresco event in the Mission. Come by to learn about how to make a 125 square foot house work for you (seriously). Suddenly, those micro units aren't quite as terrifying. Sunday, March 29: 12pm - 3pm. In front of 501 York (Mission).
