Weekend Go-Tos for March 3, 2017

A24 Films
Tonight, the community screening of Oscar winner 'Moonlight' in Oakland.

The Bay Area offers plenty of options of interesting things for you and friends to check out this weekend. Here are a few of our picks on what should be your Weekend Go-Tos.

You’ve heard a lot about the film Moonlight this week, but have you seen it? Tonight, Mills College Ethnic Studies Department teams up with Impact Hub for a special, community screening of the film, followed by a panel discussion. The screening will begin at 6:30, at Impact Hub located at 2323 Broadway in Oakland, and the discussion will follow right after. Read about the panelists and find ticket information here.

On Sunday, San Francisco’s Women’s Building will host a “Do Fair” which aims to connect Bay Area residents who want to do more to support their neighbors, with non-profit organizations serving our community that are seeking additional support. Win-win! There will be plenty of representatives from local organizations on hand for you to meet, or perhaps you’d like to represent the non-profit you work with? There will also be workshops on racial justice training, knowing your rights, and the first steps to running for public office. Plus a soundtrack provided by local DJs. The “Do Fair” will run 2:00 p.m. to 5:00 p.m., this Sunday at 3543 18th Street in San Francisco. More information can be found here.

March is the last month for Bay Area dwellers to experience “The Institute Presents: NEUROSOCIETY,” a theatrical performance and scientific experiment co-created by David Byrne and Mala Gaonkar. In the 60-minute immersive theater performance, the audience is guided through a series of experiences created in collaboration with working neuroscience labs. Showtimes run Tuesday through Sunday from now until March 31st in Menlo Park, find all the information at pacegallery.com.
