As if you needed an excuse to get dirty and weird, the How Weird Street Faire returns this week with the How Dirty pre-party. Charlie Sheen knows a little about both, and you can bet he won't be hanging with anti-coke, sensi-smoking Pato Banton or with the health-conscious crowd at the New Living Expo before his Torpedoes of Truth tour hits SF this Saturday. Be the first to christen Monroe Ultra Lounge at its debut, and play with your noodles at NoodleFest 2011, a celebration of the culinary treats of North Beach and Chinatown. Basking in the glow of her recent Choachella set, tUnE-yArDs is back in the Bay Area for a hometown gig, and Jamaica returns with another dance party to keep your happy feet happy.
