BARTable This Weekend: Feb. 16-18

It's a long weekend for some and that means an extra day to get out there and enjoy all the fun things the Bay has to offer. Whether you want to learn from choreography masters on how to improve your dance skills or drink beer and eat spicy food, we have something for everyone.

Black History Month is in full swing and there are two great events this weekend on both sides of the Bay. In San Francisco, check out the Black Choreography Festival. Already in its 10th year, the festival highlights traditional and contemporary African American dance. In the East Bay, the African American Museum & Library at Oakland presents "Col. Charles Young and the Buffalo Soldiers at the Presidio". Frederick Penn, a Vietnam-era vet and National Park Service ranger leads this presentation. For more celebrations, check our Black History Month events near BART guide.

For the spicy food lover, SF Beer Week presents the “Hops on Fire” Festival. Think you can take on what Guinness World Records calls the hottest chili in the world, the Carolina Reaper? Only one way to find out. In Berkeley, don't miss Widower's Houses at the Aurora Theatre Company. Playwright Bernard Shaw shows us that gentrification, rent prices and social responsibilty aren't necessarily new concepts.

What are your plans for the weekend? Where will BART take you? We love to hear your stories, so make sure to tag us @sfbartable or by using #sfbartable on FacebookTwitter, and Instagram.
