Cool Things To Do—Week of September 23, 2020

Do a Drive-In Movie. Outdoor theaters are surging in popularity around the world during Covid-19 and San Francisco finally has one. Fort Mason Flix launched a month-long pop-up at the water's edge. Get your tickets now before they sell out!

Dine Outside and Play Putt-Putt. A new miniature golf course on Cypress and Main hopes to attract golfers and non-golfers alike for a swinging good time. Play twelve holes for ten bucks after a BLT, fries, and milkshake at Mel’s.

Get a Culture Fix. San Francisco museums announce reopening dates with free admission for the first two weeks beginning September 25 at the De Young and October 4 at SFMOMA. Expect reduced capacity, advance tickets, mask-wearing, and social distancing.

Train for Bay to Breakers. The big crowds won’t be happening this year, but you can still put on a creative costume and run a 12K on Walnut Creek's backroads with your social pod.

Soar with Beautiful Birds at the Bedford. The Lesher Center’s first-floor gallery remerges after six months with an online exhibit, Bird, Nest, Nature. Contemporary artists continue to be inspired by these fine feathered creatures.

Celebrate Oktoberfest. Beginning September 25, Pliny for President is on tap at Gott’s Roadside. Stop by for a sip of Russian River Brewing’s once-every-four-years limited double dry-hopped IPA and munch on a Niman Ranch brat.
