Beats for Lunch
Monarch | 101 6th St.

Beats for Lunch, the new midday dance party brought to you by the merry pranksters at SunsetSF (Sea of Dreams, Silent Frisco, SF Funk Fest), aims squarely at the lethargic routines of round-bellied office workers and delirious dot-commers, prompting them to get ready to get sweaty...during the lunch hour. Now with extra Motown! Info.

Self-Portraiture For Non-Narcissists

This photography class is for you if you're: uncomfortable in front of the camera, interested in self-portraiture but not sure where to begin, dabbling in self-portraiture and wondering where to take it next, or even if you think self-portraiture is sort of dumb pursuit but secretly you'd like to be able to take a good photo of yourself now and again. Narcissists also welcome! Info.
