Bet you've never been to an art show like this: Made famous in Los Angeles, the “Pancakes & Booze” Underground Art Show comes to San Francisco with a night of over 100 emerging and underground artists, DJ performances, body-painting, and all-you-can-eat pancakes. The (delicious) show runs tonight and tomorrow night from 8pm to 2am at Mezzanine. Guests should expect a $10 cover charge and a no-host bar.
Bring home a new pet: Paxton Gate is offering a 2-day DIY Taxidermy Jackalope class. Nearing extinction, the specimens used in the class are the result of an aggressive reintroduction plan. $325 buys attendees a (long) lesson in taxidermy on Saturday and Sunday from 10am to 6pm PT.
Don't forget a good cause: Beat Bust: A Ghost Ship Fire Benefit takes place this Sunday from 3pm to 6pm PT at The SF Eagle. Five DJs will spin beats throughout the afternoon while the purchase of one $15 cup of beer comes with unlimited refills. Proceeds support relief efforts for the community affected by the fire at the Ghost Ship warehouse.
