Castro Week: March Madness, St. Patrick's Day, Bond & Beyond And More

Got an event you want the neighborhood to know about? To be included in our next Castro weekly roundup, please fill out the form at this link by Tuesday evening.

Last week was wet and wild, with plenty going on in the neighborhood, including the Castro CBD's big anniversary party (pictured above). By now, hopefully, you've had enough time to adjust to Daylight Saving Time, because after last week's complete wash out, this week's weather is turning out to be perfect.

If you're looking for a few things to do this week, let's check out a few of the highlights.

Get your brackets ready, the annual men's college basketball tournament, March Madness, officially tips off tomorrow with play-in games happening yesterday and today. Hi Tops, which is now open for lunch Monday-Friday, is your official March Madness headquarters in the Castro. They'll have all the games on, and should be an ideal spot to catch all the action. 

Tomorrow is St. Patrick's Day, so don't forget to wear some green to work. Then head over to Lookout for their annual St. Patrick's Day Party with green Jell-O shots and Irish beers.

For all you Bond aficionados out there, the Castro Theatre is hosting a Bond and Beyond double feature festival starting tomorrow, with "Dr. No" and "From Russia With Love" starring Sean Connery as James Bond. The festival runs through Tuesday (no films on Sunday), with a Bond film screening each day paired with another film from each leading man.

If you're looking to get out of town this weekend, hop aboard the Napa Valley Pride Ride along the Napa Valley Wine Train on Saturday supporting the Richmond/Ermet Aid Foundation. Or, if you're staying in the neighborhood, here are a few more of our favorite events this weekend. 

For the chance to see your event potentially featured in an upcoming events roundup, submit it here, and be sure to check out for a full listing of everything that's going on around the city.
