19 Feb Weekend: 2/19 – 2/21
Hey Gators! We’d like to introduce Gator Getaways to our blog. As our website serves as a platform to host many of the resources you may need, we also want to provide fun and cheap weekend ideas for you and your friends! As college students, we’re all on a pretty tight budget. But have no fear, there are definitely ways to enjoy your weekend in the city on a college budget! Here are a few upcoming events you may want to check out with your friends:
Midnight Rollerskating DJ Party
If you’re a fan of rollerskating, join the party at the Ferry building every Friday at about 8:45pm. The adventure begins at the Ferry building and continues a route throughout the city!
Off the Grid in Oakland
Enjoy delicious food trucks in Oakland every Friday night from 5-9pm at the Oakland Museum of California. Simply hop on BART (standard BART fees vary) to Oakland and get off at Lake Merritt!
2016 Chinese New Year Parade @ 5:15-8:00pm
Hop on the bus this weekend and celebrate the year of the Monkey in Chinatown (Kearny & Sutter)!
Yoga in Golden Gate Park every Saturday
Every Saturday, take a stroll through Golden Gate Park and meet up with others for a free yoga session at 11am at the Rec Field!
Farmer’s Market @ the UN Plaza
In addition to stopping by our campus Farmer’s Market (every Thursday), you should also check out the “Heart of the City” farmer’s market every Sunday from 7am-5pm. To get there, you can take the M line or the BART to the Civic Center Station!
We hope you guys have a fantastic, fun, and relatively cheap weekend with your friends! Also, it might rain this weekend so don’t forget to bring an umbrella! See ya next week on 19th Ave!
