FIVE THINGS to keep you busy this weekend

By Caitlin Donohue

Renegade Craft Fair Workshops will be proceeding in the attempt to teach you to make a wooden map or bear case, among other items – but if you’re two left thumbs, you still came to the right place. With over 250 makers hawking their wares, you don’t have to make any of your presents yourself, ever. More time to spend at this event’s full bar and free photobooth, we say. Also Sun/22. 11am-6pm, free. Concourse Exhibition Center, 635 Eighth St., SF. www.renegadecraftfair.com

Elizabeth McGrath This sculptor and painter makes slightly sweet, slightly twisted creatures of gold leaf, garnet tears of blood, and delicate rhinestone inlay. It is only right that tonight her exhibit opens in Scott Hove’s hallucinogenic maze of fanged pastry sculptures, Oakland’s Cakeland. 6-9pm, free. Cakeland Gallery, 5600 Shattuck, Oakl. Facebook: Elizabeth McGrath at Cakeland

Free Zumba class Have you ever found yourself pondering that beguilingly mysterious fitness trend Zumba? Wondered if its rhythmic pumpings might indeed suit the heartbeat of your under-exercised life? Lucky slob, SF Rec and Park has a passel of free classes on a regular basis. Get out there, ya big lug. 10:30-11:30am, free. Crocker Amazon Playground, Moscow and Italy, SF. www.sfrecpark.org

Beer bust for cancer patient Community member Tarazo Satow is fighting a big fight and needs you to drink a billion beers to help him out. Come lay down your cash at this all-you-can-drink benefit to help cover the cancer patient’s medical bills. 4-8pm, $10. Beaux, 2344 Market, SF. Facebook: Suck down some beer, cause cancer sucks and not in a good way! https://www.facebook.com/events/1444029149151879/

This is Seattle drag queen Jackie Beat, for one night and one night alone. 7pm, $26-40. Rebel, 1772 Market, SF. www.missjackiebeat.com

‘Twas the Night A Ruffati organ, the Symphony brass section, singers from the SF Symphony Chorus and a Davies Symphony Hall decked out in wreaths and tinsel – fail to get in the holiday spirit during this program and earn serious Grinch points. 4pm, $13-75. Also shows on Mon/23 and Tue/24. Davies Symphony Hall, 201 Van Ness, SF. www.sfsymphony.org
