There oughta be a rule that the weather is not allowed to be rainy on the weekends. It's looking like another soggy one, but nevertheless we found plenty of activities to get you out of the house. Celebrate the start of Black History Month, experience art and theatre or catch a Super Bowl watch party near BART.

Creditors (ends Feb. 24) at Downtown Berkeley
Adolf is a painter who befriends a man named Gustav, who both inspires him and feeds his mind with doubts about Adolf’s novelist wife, Tekla. As the tragi-comic story unfolds, the audience can see the threeway web of deceit and shifting power grow ever more deadly. “Creditors” is a powerful psychodrama about a sexual triangle taken to destructive extremes, and has been called “both coldly objective and scathingly passionate” by the New York Times. Tickets are $40 and can be bought online. Take BART to Downtown Berkeley and walk two minutes to Aurora Theatre.
 
Saturday BARTable This Weekend by BART
Catch "Paradise Square: A New Musical" at Berkeley Rep.
 
It’s 1863 and in a 20-block area of Manhattan known as the Five Points, Black and Irish Americans live side by side, work together, marry, and for a brief period realize racial harmony. However, the intensifying Civil War soon results in the first-ever Federal draft, leading to riots. Will the hard-won bonds of friendship, community, and family in the Five Points prevail or be severed forever? Find out in this musical at Berkeley Repertory Theatre. Take BART to Downtown Berkeley and walk three minutes to the show.
 
The must-see romantic comedy with sparkling wit, exuberant characters, and show-stopping dancing, "Don Quixote" is the stylish rom-com of classical ballet—and an audience favorite. Helgi Tomasson and Yuri Possokhov’s "Don Quixote", with set and costumes designed by Tony Award winner Martin Pakledinaz, features a lively cast of characters from the Miguel de Cervantes’ novel—and some of ballet’s most technically demanding dances. Tickets range from $25-225 and can be purchased online.  Take BART to Civic Center/UN Plaza and walk eight minutes to the War Memorial Opera House at 301 Van Ness.
 
Winter on the Waterfront (ends Mar. 3) at Embarcadero
Winter on the Waterfront is a way for visitors to experience Bay Area adventures and for locals to have a staycation right in their backyard. The list of discounted opportunities includes Alcatraz cruises, waterfront dining, Ghirardelli chocolate, fresh crab, hotel rooms and a neighborhood fly over. The list of specials can be found here.
