The One About Love, Hate and Baseball
Suzie Racho and David Wiegand scout the Bay Area for things to do this coming weekend and turn up Casanova, a Firehouse reunion, the love of baseball, and much more!
Events Mentioned in this Episode:
April 6- 28, 2012
In case you couldn't smell it in the air or tell from the flashes of orange everywhere, baseball fever has gripped our fair city once again. You can celebrate by checking out the 15th annual Art of the Game exhibit at the George Krevsky Gallery in Union Square through April 28, 2012.
April 6 - every first Friday, 2012
Just because you're broke doesn't mean you have to stay in your house all the time. Every first Friday, Oakland hosts Art Murmur, a magical time from 6pm to 9pm when all the art galleries are open the public and craft, art, and food vendors abound. Check it out (your couch will be there when you get back)!
April 6, 2012
The local legend known as Dan Hicks has been a musical
whole career and is planning to celebrate his 70th birthday in a major way at Davies Symphony Hall tonight with help from some of his friends (Rickie Lee Jones, Van Dyke Parks, Roy Rogers, Jim Kewskin, and many more)!
April 6 - May 13, 2012
The Aurora Theatre world premieres a new translation of Anatol, the story of a Viennese Casanova who searches for the perfect lover only to have the women gain the upper hand. It's about time the ladies flip that tables on that dude. Anatol starts tonight and runs through May 13, 2012.
April 11 - 12, 2012
Reunions are such happy affairs (unless you hated high school). Art punk trio Firehose is getting back together after splitting up in 1994. They're playing Slim's this Wednesday and they're also opening up for M. Ward at the Coconut Grove in Santa Cruz on Thursday.
April 11 - 13, 2012
You know that thing that happens when you're
spaced out at a bus stop and then you lock eyes with the love of your life, but you bizarrely don't say anything to them and
regret it forever and ever? Well, now there's an opera about that called Love/Hate that is getting its world premiere
at ODC in San Francisco next Thursday, Saturday, and Sunday.
