We’re sure we don’t have to remind you that it’s Fleet Week weekend. All the heart pounding roaring in the sky that’s been going on should have been a pretty clear indication. That, and all the Lean Cuisine men and women in uniform walking around the city. But don’t ogle them so much you run in to a pole and spend your weekend at home recuperating instead of painting the town red here:
WE DON’T WANT TO MISS:
BIKES AND BEATS AT PUBLIC WORKS
Friday, October 7, 9 p.m. to 3 a.m.
If you didn’t make it to the last one, phooey on you, because it was a rager, and this one promises to be nothing less. There’s a solid lineup of hot fire DJs, some cray cray visuals to go along, door prizes, drink specials and a DIY craft area. Tickets are $8 now or $10 at the door.

DIA DE LOS MUERTOS AT SOMARTS
Friday, October 7, 6 p.m. to 10 p.m.
The official holiday isn’t until November, but what’s a holiday without a good build up? This year’s exhibit is title Illuminations (up until November 5th) and symbolizes “a source of light for spiritual and intellectual reflection.” Grab tickets to the opening reception to see visual artist Herbert Siguenza perform and paint as Pablo Picasso.

SANDCASTLE CONTEST AT OCEAN BEACH
Saturday, October 8, 10 a.m. to 4 p.m.
The architects competing in this contest make sandcastle building look like child’s play. This is North America’s largest sandcastle building event, and raised over $222,000 for schools across the Bay Area last year. So as you’re traipsing down Ocean Beach this weekend, watch where you step!
