Green Festival 2007
In honor of family-oriented Thanksgiving Day (aka Native American National Day of Mourning), this week's guide is strictly PG-rated. Almost all of our picks are above board and no ID is necessary. Before you sit down and stuff yourselves with Tofurkey, why not first wear off a few calories? Get all bundled up and enjoy some Holiday Ice Skating at Justin Herman Plaza or don your fav turkey suit for the Turkey Beach Trot at Golden Gate Park. Don't forget that the biggest travel weekend of the year also equals a (mostly) empty city. Take advantage of the thinned crowds and bring the family down to Union Square for the annual Tree Lighting. And for those nay-sayers who claim that SF lacks holiday spirit, there's The Great Dickens Christmas Fair and Victorian Holiday Party which kicks off at the Cow Palace. Think the Ren Fair but with tons of holiday spirit and more clothes. Last but not least, this Sunday is the California Academy of Sciences' 23rd annual Run Wild 5K/10K. If you didn't get your fill of becostumed runners earlier on in the week, then this crazy race will be sure to indulge you.

"In his teens he learned how to play classical guitar and some time later, when he was part of one punk band and one hardcore band, he sat at home writing low-voiced pieces on his guitar. That range of expression, or maybe that contradiction in expression, says a lot about José as a person - and about the new album In Our Nature."

at Cody's Books (7pm)
New forms of expression are often male dominated as they fight to become accepted - think of the jazz community and Bessie Smith. As a burgeoning contemporary medium the same holds true for spoken word poetry. In recent years, however, women artists have become some of the most popular voices on the scene. The combination of the eminent slam movement and the surge of bold feminist movements created a group of women changing the perception of the typical performance poet.
