Here in San Francisco, the buzz right now is all about the Giants’ playoff run. For a great weekend plan, check out these fun SF World Series parties and watch the team battle the Rangers, dyed beards and all. (We love you, DFW, but your goatees are just so…natural.) And if you don’t see one that suits you, why not gather some baseball buddies and host your own party?

Of course, hardball is hardly the only game this week. Suds swillers will be glad to see that Oktoberfest events are still going strong. We’ve also got your tickets to some seriously great Halloween parties all over the country. And on Tuesday, the political parties aren’t just Democrats and Republicans. They’re also political parties. The Eventbrite kind. Here’s our list of some great election day events.

Have fun browsing, and we’ll see you out there!
