WHAT: Join faith leaders, water experts, community members, and environmental groups as we celebrate international World Water Day with an evening of education and action. The World Water Challenge is an hour-long community education program about the dangers of corporate control of water and actions to turn back the tide. Included are stories of corporate water abuses in Asia, Latin America, the United Kingdom and North America.
The event is part of Corporate Accountability International's “Think Outside the Bottle” campaign, which raises awareness about the growing global water crisis, and organizes to protect water as a human right, instead of a corporate commodity.
The United Nations estimates that by 2025, 2 out of 3 people will not have access to water. Find out how we can work together here in the Bay Area for this invaluable common good. Free food provided! Bring your families, friends, and neighbors. All are welcome.

BunnyJam07 is coming up, Saturday April 7th.
It's going to be at the Porn Palace space in SF (mission, near the metreon parking garage).
Great space, that looks really nice inside. Castle Room, Barnyard, Retro Bar Room, Jail Room, and more.
The theme is going to be: "The Hare-Itics Ball : Ye Ole Bunny Jamme" Hop with it.
We really need some fresh bunny art so it's not just the same stuff recycled from last year.
We have alot of small (as in up to 5x5 feet) spaces spread around the venue that we'd love to fill with bunny art. This is where you come in to play. Do you have an idea for an art installation, interactive art piece, performance art piece, or anything really, that you would like to bring to bunny jam?
If so, send me a message or email me at sfaaron26 [at]
We also need general volunteers for set up and running the party, but that doesn't take as much advanced planning.

BYOBW 2007 Sunday, April 8, 4:00 PM
the Bring Your Own Big Wheel race is back and curvier than ever!*
2007 will be the SEVENTH ANNUAL BYOBW, neighbors and police permitting, rain or shine ... there are always prizes, one year featured tighty-whities with custom denim iron-on Lombard Street Skid Marks and other years have featured paintings, string art, shellac plaques, and embroidered knit caps and t shirts, all made by me. Lombard Street is of course not the crookedest street, especially compared to Vermont Street in Potrero Hill, but with a built-in international audience and scenic landscaping, who could resist? Prizes are given for all sorts of reasons, occasionally for being first, always for being last, and as the race is designed for plastic children's toys which are prone to failure when carrying over 80 pounds, winning isn't the goal here - survival is. This is a free event!!!!

Café Gratitude and Barefoot Boogie! 4-11 7:30 PM Location: City Dance Studio
Café Gratitude is more than a restaurant?it?s becoming a way of life for many people in the Bay area. Freestyle dancing has been a ?movement? of its own for many years now, providing an outlet for people in search of creative expression, community, and exercise without having to put up with the drugs, alcohol, loud volume and late hours of the rave and club scene. Now we get to put the two together!
Join the founders of Café Gratitude, Matthew and Terces Engelhart, at Barefoot Boogie on Wednesday, April 11. From 7:30 to 8pm, Matthew and Terces will talk a bit about their lives and how they got where they are today, what motivates and inspires them, and will lead us through a ?gratitude exercise? to motivate and inspire us! Then A+ (aka Adamah), the founder of Gratitude Nights, a monthly dance-art-community benefit celebration, will deejay a funky, deep, and juicy mix of music for freestyle dancing.
Barefoot Boogie happens every Wednesday, 7:30-10:30 pm, at City Dance Studio, 32 Otis Street, between Mission and Market, 12th St and Division, entrance up Brady onto Colton with a private parking lot. Admission is $8-10 sliding scale; first-timers are just $5. For more info, check or call 415-820-1452. Dance shoes are welcome; no scents, please.

In celebration of this year’s theme “the Green Man”, our annual Burning Man Open House and Volunteer Recruitment Day will feature a major Green House theme to help you green your burn!
As in prior years, this is your chance to meet the coordinators of our City, and learn how you can become one of the 3,000+ volunteers that create it. This year, we’re adding a complete green fair, with eco-fashion show, alternative energy demonstrations and presentations, a trashion workshop, solar cooking, green art, and a whole lot more! Even our annual pot luck and BBQ social will be earth-friendly. It all began at the beach, so after the event, we’ll all head to Ocean Beach to fire up the new burn platforms!!
Plan to spend the entire day at BMHQ, because like the playa, there will be a lot going on! Here’s just a sampling:
How to be a green burner - eco-workshops, presentations, and demonstrations on the solar powered stage plus green vehicles, eco-carnival, solar ovens, biodiesel distillation, grey water works, green art and the Solar Death Ray 2000!
Volunteer resource tables open – meet the volunteer coordinators from over 20 departments that organize our creative chaos into our city. Ask them anything, like how their department is going green. From Greeters to Artery to DPW to Rangers to Playa Info to DMV to the Geek Squad, we fuel our city on participation. WE need YOU to be part of WE to make the dream real! You’ll never be the same…
Solar Stage - Biofuels presentations, Green Man Puppet Performance, Inconvenient Truth Talk, the Tri-clops Monstrosity Band, and more!
Green pot luck – eat lunch earth-friendly: BYO reusable or composting cups, plates, and utensils, along with organic food to share.
Ongoing green demonstrations indoors and out - Check out the Trashion Bee, the Friends of Black Rock, green lighting and videos, displays on how to be green, the National LNT traveling trainers – even a hydrogen-fueled rocket! Bring old sheets, socks, pants, sweaters, shirts and swatches to create a MOOP bag or playa outfit at the Bee.
Eco-fashion show – get your trashion on the stage, or be trashy paparazzi!!!
Leave no trace at BMHQ and cruise to the 5PM burn platform inauguration @ Ocean Beach to light something up! We’ve been trusted with this beach so treat it like the playa. Since the Park Service is running this show and even bringing the wood, please leave alcohol/glass behind and enjoy the fire!
April 14th is a day of climate change events across the country, so don't be a spectator - become a participant! It's a great way to meet everyone, become more connected to the Burning Man community, and preserve the planet. Why not start by leaving your car at home: BMHQ is served by the NEW SF Muni T-THIRD streetcar service, Mariposa Street stop. (scheduled to open April 7th - see

Optional Action 2pm caravan North on 101, circle Hummer Dealership, San Rafael
Calling all Plug-ins, Hybrids, Biodiesels, Bikes & Feet! Step It Up SF07:Lighten Up Your Ride is a day of climate action and info focused on reducing carbon emissions from transportation. Lighten Up Your Ride is one of more than 800 events around the country supporting a national call on Congress to reduce carbon emissions 80% by 2050, through the Step It Up 2007 campaign.
Working Assets and Mainstreet Moms are hosting the San Francisco event, which includes an optional parade north on 101 to circle the Hummer dealership in San Rafael. The event is part car rally, part expo, and part action fair, featuring a demo of 100% electric cars, plug-in hybrids, diesel buses, and news from the bike coalitions. We will educate attendees on how to reduce their carbon footprints, and provide on-site letter-writing actions supporting 80% carbon emissions reductions by 2050.
We want car owners to join us and share the extraordinary technology that goes into supporting carbon reduction vehicles. Whether you have a biodiesel car and story to share, or you have a guzzler but want to know what's next, this gathering is for you. The no carbon foot print bicyclists from across the city will also be joining us to show their support for reducing carbon.
At the event, local environmental groups and other organizations will have information about their organizations and the work they are doing to help fight climate change.
The message of April 14th to Congress is that we are doing our part to reduce carbon emissions. Now it is your turn.
Lighten Up Your Ride invites all attendees to join the 2pm rally heading north up 101 to surround the Hummer dealership in San Rafael with clean cars, and a picket line of polar bears. (Polar Bear masks and "Hey Hummers: How Much Can a Polar Bear?" posters provided on site.) Press: Polar Bears In Clean Cars Picket the Hummer. Photo op: Polar Bears standoff with rented Hummer.
