Beam Me Up, San Francisco
The legendary William Shatner is coming to San Francisco! Whether you know him as Captain Kirk (Picard, who?), as a singing sensation, or simply as "that guy from the Priceline commercials," William Shatner has a firmly cemented place in pop culture history. This weekend he's taking to the stage to tell the tale—through a series of anecdotes, songs, and even a poignant moment or two—of how he went from being a lowly stage actor (Shakespearean trained to boot!) to the cultural icon that everyone reveres. Here's to you, Captain Kirk. It's a show for all ages, so bring the kids! Ticket prices vary between $40 - $180.
When: January 30th, 8pm. Doors close at 7pm.
Where: The Warfield (982 Market Street, San Francisco)
Queen B or Queen RiRi?
What: A tribute night to two of the most influential artists of our time, Beyonce and Rihanna! While each fan base can debate until the end of time which of these iconic ladies is better (we remain impartial), everyone can sit back and enjoy the endless, catchy hits these superstars have given us. Whether you're Crazy in Love with Beyonce, or if Rihanna is the Only Girl for you, head down for a drink (21 and over only!) and enjoy the musical stylings of both.
When: January 29th, 9:30pm. *Advanced tickets are sold out!* Limited amount of tickets ($15) available at the door, get there early!
Where: Rickshaw Stop (155 Fell Street, San Francisco)
Get Famous in The Bay
What: Have an interest in art, fashion, or music? Then this party is for you! Famous in Bushwick is an interactive experience showcasing local artists and designers, all while guests are treated to live tunes curated by New York DJs Dyllemma and The Gent (with a special appearance by SF's very own DJ Drea Faux Real). T-shirts will be printed at the event, so you can buy your very own exclusive keepsake!
Psst: Are you an artist or designer? If you want a chance to be showcased, email Rosey.

Where: Monroe SF (473 Broadway, San Francisco).
Are You Cajun Me?

The menu contains mouthwatering and authentic Cajun dishes with a Creole-Californian influence.

Advance tickets are $25, and $30 the day of the event. What are you waiting for?!
When: January 31st, between 2pm and 6pm
