Now that we can officially put the "season of giving" behind us and carry on with our normal routines away from holiday traffic and crowds, Dine About Town provides the perfect opportunity for a little self-fulfillment with lunch deals at some of San Francisco's best restaurants. The Good Food Awards brings more attention to tasty, responsibly produced food and How-to Nightlife at the Academy of Sciences provides a little extra help for lingering resolutions and plans to learn something new. Realign your extracurricular activities on the dance floor at Study Hall and revisit the classics with Devo and The Wailers.

Written & directed by Cherrķe Moraga, New Fire is a 21st century mythological journey. Countering new-age apocalyptic predictions for 2012, New Fire is not your (stereo)typical Native American play but a mythic and modern-day look at the part of American history that is usually omitted from post-colonial textbooks.
at SOMArts Cultural Center (6pm and 8pm)

Set in four different rooms at the Bay Gallery in SOMArts Cultural Center, the audience is invited to not only watch the action but to physically follow the drama from set to set.
