While the Gulf of Mexico is bubbling crude, now is the perfect time to dust off the 'ol bicycle and put the rubber to the pavement without the need for fossil fuels. Stick to the flatlands of the Western Addition tonight for Boogaloo Tuesdays at Madrone Lounge. The house band Steppin will keep your legs loose and limber with body-rockin' soul jazz, boogaloo, and funk. It should be another easy ride to F*ck Buttons at Great American Music Hall, just make sure you have a good lock, as bike's are known to *magically* disappear in the TL after dark. Don't stay out too late; you'll need your energy Thursday for Bike to Work Day and Dolores Park Movie Night with The Royal Tenenbaums. B.o.B. is also back in action at Manor West. Show off your fit bike body and your finest threads at San Francisco Prom, and shed some layers and soak up the sun (fingers crossed!) at the 11th annual Oysterfest. And on Sunday, return to the streets en masse for the Bay to Breakers marathon!
