  • Also Friday: SF Bike Party: Monster Bash! The Bike Party this month will explore some of the less-traversed southeastern neighborhoods: “Under the cover of darkness we’re calling on the three eyed, winged, and fanged monsters to ride with us through some amazing vistas SF has to offer. So grab your bike, your tentacles, your cyclops friend and roll on down to SFBP’s February ride!” 7:30 p.m.
