You’ll probably be breaking this weekend in Snoop Dogg style, which is cool, but we’re also starting to wonder if it’s a coincidence that the most herb-friendly day of the year coincides with Earth Day.
Regardless, there’s a ton you can do this week, whether you’re high off your ass or not—there’s pizza and cleanups throughout the Bay Area, and even a Westworld pop-up. Let’s dive in.
No one needs a chill pill more than Dolores
When: Sunday, April 22nd – Sunday, July 1
Where: AT&T Union Square
Why: Would you go white hat or black hat in Westworld? Hit up the AT&T store on Powell to take a Delos “Personality Evaluation,” see props and wardrobe items from the show, enter a pop-up saloon and explore Westworld with an interactive map. It’s the western/robot mashup you never imagined, and let’s be real, probably the most exciting thing to happen to an AT&T store in a minute. // 1 Powell St., Market.
Eat pizza like the Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles
When: Sunday, April 22nd, 11 A.M. – 5 P.M.
Where: SoMa StrEat Food Park
Why: Pizza is perfectly respectable on its own, but the people at SoMa StrEat Food Park have ingeniously blessed the occasion with 90s jams by a live DJ. It’s everything you ever dreamed of – thin crust, Chicago, New York, Neopolitan, hand tossed, gluten free. Being that this is the Bay Area, you know the unconventionally delicious will be present – so be sure to go back for a second slice. // 428 11th St., SoMa, tickets are $5.
Remember how much you used to love Captain Planet?
When: Saturday, April 21st, 9 A.M. – 12 P.M.
Why: This weekend marks Earth Day, aka Oakland’s largest annual volunteer cleanup. There are roughly 100 sites across the city, there therefore 100 opportunities for you to join in and green up Oakland’s favorite spots. No orange jumpsuit require, just you and 3,000 other volunteers. Sites include Jingletown, Montclair Park, and Marjorie Saunders Park. Think of all the new friends you’ll make, and all the tips on composting you’ll share. // Sign up riiiiiight here.
