Jeffery of Club Lyfe, and extremely jolly cocktails. 9pm-2am, free. Q Bar, 456 Castro, SF.

 Contemporary Jewish Museum community day Town’s phenomenal Jewish
culture museum flings its doors open wide for those looking to spend the day browsing superb temporary exhibits (including the current show of illustrations

bowl of matzo ball soup at the museum’s outpost of Wise Sons Jewish Delicatessen.

Karma Cinema at New Parkway Theater Catch Blue is the Warmest Color, the
