Don't let the Super Bowl get the best of you, San Francisco! There's still lots to do, and the weather's going to be downright lovely all week, so step away from your screens and devices and go check out some of this stuff. Seriously.
TUESDAY, FEBRUARY 2
VINTAGE WEREWOLF ACTION: Over at Alamo Drafthouse at the New Mission, tonight's vintage film programming features 1981 werewolf horror flick The Howling, from Gremlins director Joe Dante, which Roger Ebert called " "the silliest film [I've] seen in some time." But as Alamo tells us, it's also "sleazy, smart, and completely self-obsessed all over," and, "It's also the only movie in history to reference nine werewolf movies during its opening credits." Alamo Drafthouse Cinema, 2550 Mission Street, 10 p.m., $5
OPERA VIA MOVIE THEATER: Intimidated by opera and the SF Opera House but still opera-curious? The San Francisco Opera is doing limited screenings of their live 2014 production of Show Boat. Yes, it's the American musical by Kern and Hammerstein, except cast with all opera singers and treated more as light opera, and you can watch from the comfort of the cushy seats at the Kabuki, with booze and food. See a highlight reel here. Sundance Kabuki Cinemas, 1881 Post Street, 7:15 p.m., $12.50. Tickets here.
WEDNESDAY, FEBRUARY 3
YOGA WITH CATS: Cats on Mats is the semi-weekly yoga class at Kittea in Hayes Valley, and while I do not believe the cats will be roaming around rubbing on you while you do downward dog, you will get 30 minutes of tea time with the adoptable kitties after the 60-minute class. Kittea, 96 Gough Street, 7:30 p.m., $38, includes tea and yoga supplies.
FREE FOLK-ROCK SHOW: This is probably the last day any sane person should consider checking out Super Bowl City, and the free concert for Wednesday evening is someone who some of you may have heard of but who is not wildly famous: singer-songwriter Matt Nathanson. Refer here for his biggest hit, from 2009. And refer here for tips like using the back entrance to the fan village, via the Ferry Building side. Super Bowl City, Justin Herman Plaza/The Embarcadero, 7:30 p.m., Free.
OSCAR NOMINATED SHORT FILMS: You ever look at those clips of the nominated shorts they show at the Academy Awards and wish you could see them all? Well, you actually can. The Landmark Embarcadero Cinema shows both the animated and live-action shorts in complete programs, and they're doing it now. There are daily showtimes, but but for Wednesday, you can watch the animated ones at 2:50 p.m. or 7:25 p.m. Landmark Embarcadero Center Cinema, One Embarcadero Center, Various showtimes, $12.50
THURSDAY, FEBRUARY 4
PUPPY BOWL CAFE!: This is it, everybody. The Animal Planet-sponsored Puppy Bowl Café we told you about last week is opening, and you'll probably want to sneak out of work at a late-afternoon hour if you want a good look at the adorable, adoptable puppies, who will be corralled outside Gott's Roadside at the Ferry Building. Gott's Roadside, Super Bowl City, 11 a.m. to 8 p.m., Free.
JOHN WATERS DRAG NIGHT: At this edition of the Ain't Your Mama's Drag, the theme is John Waters movies and characters, so you can expect at least a half dozen takes on Divine through the ages, and at least two Ricky Lake looks from Hairspray. Performances by Tweaka Turner, Pristine Condition, and more. Balancoire, 2565 Mission Street, 8 p.m., Free
FRIDAY, FEBRUARY 5
FIREWORKS: Probably the only good thing to come out of having the big Super Bowl hullabaloo downtown is some great fireworks, which some people saw some of on Saturday. But there's more. The official Macy's Fireworks Show happens Friday, right after One Republic plays at Super Bowl City, though you clearly do not need to be inside the gates of that clusterfuck to see them. Go anywhere, really, though tall buildings in SoMa or somewhere around Telegraph Hill may be best. Embarcadero, 8:30 p.m., Free
SATURDAY, FEBRUARY 6
FREE MUSEUM DAY: If you have a Bank of America card, you get free admission today and Sunday at both the deYoung Museum and the Legion of Honor where, by the way, you can still see that famous Rafael masterwork, Portrait of a Lady With a Unicorn, and on Sunday, there's even a docent lecture about it at 2:15 p.m. deYoung Museum and the Legion of Honor, 9:30 a.m. to 5:15 p.m.
EXPERIMENTAL MERMAID THEATER: It's the second night of previews for Ondine, an original new work by playwright Katharine Sherman based on the classic mermaid myth from the Tenderloin's most intellectual small theater company, The Cutting Ball. The Exit, 277 Taylor Street, 8 p.m., $15. Tickets here.
TAYLOR SWIFT DRAG TRIBUTE: D'Arcy Drollinger hosts Mother this week (Heklina's out of town), but this should be a fun and pop-y affair with plenty of screaming T-Swift fans of all ages. Drag queens Carnie Asada, Lindsay Slowhands, Trangela Landsbury and others will do their best to conjure the youngest reigning queen of pop, and meanwhile in the Fez Room, Ms. Slowhands will also host a small version of her monthly bubblegum pop party Hell'a Tight. Oasis, 298 11th Street, 10 p.m., $10
SUNDAY, FEBRUARY 7
SUBVERSIVE FOOTBALL-RELATED COMEDY: At IndieFest's annual "Super Bowl: Men In Tights" comedy spectacular, you'll be treated to plenty of nonsense from hosts/"sportsweater commentators" David Cairns, OJ Patterson , David Gborie and their guests. And they promise to " tear a new BOWL in America’s favorite live television sporting event!" for those who don't actually care about watching said event. The Roxie, 3117 16th Street, 3 p.m., $10. Tickets here.
OTHERWISE HUNKER DOWN AND PRAY FOR MONDAY: No, seriously. We don't know what's going to happen, and maybe you have a safe and marvelous bar you're going to to watch the BIG GAME, or a friend's house, but we don't advise going anywhere. This is a shelter-in-place situation, people. If you care anything for football, that's what TVs are for anyway.
