Dance performances

Neighborhood notes: dance performances, new radio station, jobs

Now that San Francisco has entered the state’s orange tier for reopening, your indoor options for this weekend have increased. Indoor restaurants, gymnasiums and places of worship can now operate with increased indoor capacity. Additionally, some previously closed businesses – including beer gardens and beer gardens – will reopen with 25% capacity. And bars no longer need to sell food to qualify.

In addition to these options, Dance Mission Theater will be offering outdoor performances this weekend to celebrate Women’s History Month. A local artist in residence is also launching a radio station and two local businesses are hiring.

And for those interested in cars or Selena, the San Francisco LowRider Council is accommodation a Selena Tribute cruise at 4 p.m. on Saturday. The band plans to ride up and down the Mission with DJ Bobby A playing on 24th and 25th Street. The Council urges attendees to wear a mask and social distance. Burnouts are prohibited.
