If you want to have a successful excursion in this town, you need a plan—and it better be a good one. Since it’s not always easy to strike that perfect balance between “pre-game” drink, food and a show, our partners in crime at 7×7 bring you the Date Night series — a block-by-block guide to weekend itineraries that only require one parking space. This weekend, we’ve got an artsy excursion to the Dogpatch on tap so call the babysitter and get ready for some grown up date night fun.

See: Journey to the Dogpatch’s Romer Young Gallery (1240 22nd St.) to take in Lucy Pullen’s HUE, one of our 6 Must-See Gallery Openings this month. Four brightly colored and playful Plexiglas sculptures let you break the normal boundaries around art exhibits by walking amongst them and taking photos at will.

7×7 has the complete low down to where to eat, drink, and be merry in San Francisco’s hidden gem, the Dogpatch so be sure to read the full article here because you won’t want to miss out on all the fun.

This is our weekly guest post from our friends at 7×7, a site that keeps you up on the best of SF. We’ve teamed up for an exciting partnership to bring you a fantastic Date Night idea each week. Be sure to check out their blog for hourly doses of the best of SF.
