5 Things to do in the Bay Area this weekend

San Jose mural tour
Join the 13-mile guided tour through San Jose’s (flat) streets and get the low-down on some of the city’s most iconic historical murals. Pedal through downtown, Japantown, Mayfair, East Side and Gardner neighborhoods. Saturday, 3/4, 10am-2pm.

Soul Food Fest
Now in its 37th year, the Soul Food Fest & Block Party at Bayview Hunter’s Point features live music, vendor booths, and a mouth-watering array of down-home cooking of soulful delights. Enjoy ribs, fried chicken, red beans and rice, sweet potato pie and much, much more. Saturday, 3/4, 11am-6pm.

Festival Martishor
Moldova, that small eastern European country sandwiched between Ukraine and Romania, celebrates spring, love and friendship right here in San Francisco at Danilov Restaurant. Live music, dancing and of course lots of Moldovan fare is on tap. Saturday, 3/3, noon-6pm.

White Elephant Sale
One person’s trash is another’s treasure at the huge White Elephant Sale in Oakland. Search through 19 departments for quality used clothing, furniture, household goods, music, books and assorted items you’d find at your typical garage sale (x 100). Saturday and Sunday, 3/4-5, 10am-4pm, 33 Lancaster St., Oakland.

Onesie Pub Crawl
People of legal drinking age will be stumbling around Fisherman’s Wharf in onesie pj’s for the World’s Largest Onesie party, all in the name of fun (especially if it evokes (ostensibly) ironic hints of childhood). Hey, I don’t wanna grow up either. A potentially huge crowd, so come early. Saturday, 3/4, 6pm-1am.
