    Painting (Hannah Nicole Winery)

    Canvas and Cabernet
    Dab, sip, stroke. Repeat, til masterpiece status is reached. Come down to Hannah Nicole Winery and enjoy two of life's great pleasures: painting and wine. With the help of an expert instructor, you'll emulate the night's painting of choice, while still putting your own unique spin on your work. As the night progresses, both in terms of your developing technique and the wine you've been consuming, don't be surprised if your painting starts to look pretty good. The next morning though? Who knows. Plus, it's 21 and up, so those awful enfant terribles who are always causing such a ruckus at the galleries won't be allowed in.

    Beginner's Photography

    Isla Studio
    We all know that the best superhero ability would be to be able to stop time. Alas, it's impossible (we're mostly certain of this). Photography isn't the same... but it's the closest thing we've got to it. If you're going to do something, do it well. Come down to the Isla Studio and learn the basics of this incredible artform. Not only will you never miss a memory again, your memories will take on an aesthetically pleasing form... no thumbs in front of the lense, in other words. You know, in the early years of photography, philosopher Walter Benjamin criticized the medium as a debasement of art's "aura". What did he know? Photography rules.

    Lousy Downtown Tour

    SK Morton's Lousy San Francisco Walking Tour
    Sure, there's a bunch of walking tours that you can take from Lotta's Fountain to Maiden Lane to Union Square. But how many tour guides try to trip you along the way? SK will -- SK Morton, your hilarious tour guide that is -- and he's got a pretty good record of acquittal. The Lousy Tour is an entertaining walking tour that incorporates points of interest for history, architecture, flora & fauna and culture in a fun and humorous way. Nothing is taken too seriously and SK often makes guests his playful victims. Once you settle into your recommended Stockholm Syndrome you may just get to see the city skyline from a rooftop garden on Market Street, tour the only Frank Lloyd Wright designed building in San Francisco, examine, up close and personal, a monumental work by famed artist Ruth Asawa, and pass through the gates of Chinatown on your way to Old St. Mary's park and church. And if you're good, maybe have a bite and a pint at the Irish Bank...maybe.
