Looking to sharpen your wits and flex your charitable muscle before holiday commitments fill your social calendar? Geek out and learn something new over a few cocktails when Nerd Nite returns to the Rickshaw Stop with a marine biologist and other brainy guests. Put your design and engineering skills to the test at Pimp My Pinewood Derby and unleash your inner sleuth at The Dinner Detective, a murder mystery dinner at Fisherman's Warf. The annual SFFF Local 798 Toy Drive & Fundraiser kickoff party at Showgirls is sure to be a stimulating experience, and don't miss out on the first Pancake Festival charity event at Coda, featuring flapjacks, bands, DJs, and dancers. Test your stomach at Fun with Ferments: Kimchi, Kraut & Curtido and check out emerging West Coast musicians at the SFX Music Festival.
