Take some time away from the news this weekend and enjoy a little music, comedy or the beautiful outdoors. We've got a few options for your enjoyment, as we're sure we could all use a little of each right now. Mild weather is in the forecast, so once you've viewed some of our virtual options, it's also a good time to get out and enjoy some fresh air. Visit the BARTable Outdoors page for some help in your get-out-of-the-house planning. As always, we wish you a good weekend - enjoy! 

Editor's Note: Please wear a mask and keep a physical distance of at least six feet while riding the trains or at an in-person event. Before you travel on BART, use our Trip Planner to get estimated arrival and departure times. See BART's 15-step plan to safely welcoming riders here.
