FIVE THINGS you must do today, Monday, Dec. 16!


By Caitlin Donohue

FREE BAGELS AT LA VICTORIA BAKERY Local bakers Sour Flour offer up this carbfest at the Mission’s venerable culinary café every week – get in the neighborly spirit and stop by for a complimentary treat and your morning caffeine.
8-10am, free. La Victoria Bakery, 2937 24th St., SF.

TRY OUT A FRESH NEW LUNCH Mondays are rough – reward yourself halfway through with some cute lunch plans. Merigan Sub Shop fits the bill – former A16 executive chef Lisa Shaw is working hard to provide the kind of carnivorous subs typically relegated to the other side of the Mississippi. Veggies, don’t despair, for you the panelle (ceci bean fritters, fresh ricotta, olive salad, tomato conserva, and arugula) to ward away the work week blues.
Open 10am-7pm. Merigan Sub Shop, 636 Second St., SF.

DIEGO RIVERA MURAL TOUR This 44 square meter masterpiece named “Allegory of California” was Mexican muralist Diego Rivera’s first piece in the United States. A noted revolutionary, Rivera’s work inspired apprehension in some at the time, but any subversive messages are well hidden in this work gracing the former Pacific Stock Exchange Club. Learn its secrets today with SF City Guides.
3pm, free. RSVP required for meeting location.

OLDER WRITERS WORKSHOP Older writers are invited to come put pencil to paper at the library’s regular gathering for elder scribes.
10am-noon, free. Bernal Heights Library, 500 Cortland, SF.

THE PUNK SINGER A documentary film exploration into the life of Le Tigre and Bikini Kill’s explosive feminist frontperson Kathleen Hanna. Why’d she go silent on the issues of the day back in 2005? With 20 years of archival footage and interviews with Hanna herself, this film may have the answers.
7:15, 9pm, $10. Roxie Theater, 3117 16th St., SF.
