*SURF EVENT: Surfing has taken an unfair beating over the last few days, so give it up for what is perhaps one of the best sports ever at Roxy Surf Night. Come drink beer, eat light bites, and meet such Roxy Pros as recent World and U.S. Longboard Champ Jennifer Smith, Santa Cruz's Billabong XXL finalist and Mavericks surf star Jenny Useldinger, and top longboarder Julie Cox. At 8:15 p.m. you can also catch a screening of Roxy's Shimmer, which features Lisa Andersen, Sofia Mulanovich, Carissa Moore, Kassia Meador, and a host of others taking tasty waves.

MUSIC: Leave work early and check out "Op-Bop-Sha-Bam" over in the Lower Haight. It's a super swell night of live jazz/blues performance by local flavors. And don't worry if your boss won't unshackle you early today; "Op-Bop-Sha-Bam" happens every Tuesday.
