For seemingly 100 years, the Harlem Globetrotters have been entertaining crowds with their dazzling tricks and zany antics. The comedians of the court will be all over the Bay Area this weekend, with a Friday night stop at the Cow Palace, Saturday morning at the HP Pavilion in San Jose and the Haas Pavilion at UC Berkeley Saturday evening.
In the tradition of Jon Coltrane and Sonny Rollins, the Charles Lloyd New Quartet will play Friday at the Palace of Fine Arts Theatre in San Francisco at 7 p.m.
The best robotic minds from across the globe descend on the San Mateo Fairgrounds to pit machine against machine to the death. The RoboGames run all day, everyday, through this weekend.
