Here are 3 things you need to know for today, Thursday, October 23, 2014.

1. Celebrate Dia de los Muertos by building a sugar skull this evening.

2. Bring your little scientists to BADM for a fun outdoor learning lab at 3:30 p.m.

3. If you’re in the city this evening, check out Off the Grid near Kezar Stadium. Grab your grub, listen to live music and then let the littles blow off steam at the stadium’s track.
