    10/15 - 10/17: Don't Say There's Nothing to Do This Weekend
    Your entertainment calendar should be pack this weekend.

    If you thought the "Jerry! Jerry! Jerry!" chant was just for the live studio audience at the Jerry Springer Show, you're wrong. Take the mayhem and hollering trailer trash, put some music to it and add the lights and prestige of a dramatic performance and you have an award-winning opera. Believe it or not, those are the ingredients for Jerry Springer The Opera. This is the final weekend you'll have the chance to indulge in this guilty pleasure set on the big stage. The opera is playing at the Ray of Light Theatre.

    It's that time again. If you're a hockey nut, you'll be frothing at the mouth this weekend as the puck hits the ice once again at the HP Pavilion for the San Jose Sharks home opener. The Sharks take on the Atlanta Thrashers Saturday at 7:30 p.m.

    What do you get when you mix public transit with performing arts? The San Francisco Trolley Dances, of course. Feel the energy from the ballet dancers as they take a traditional performance to the streets and neighborhoods of the City. This is the 7th Annual festival and it promises to amaze and entertain. The festival runs Saturday and Sunday between 11 a.m. - 2:45 p.m. on the N Judah Muni from Duboce Park to the SF Botanical Garden at Golden Gate Park.

    The Treasure Island Music Festival is sure to entertain once again this year. From disco punk to experimental pop and everything in between, the TIMF has something for every musical taste. There's no parking on Treasure Island unless you have a VIP pass so it's best to meet the shuttle bus at AT&T Park, where you can park and ride a shuttle bus for free to get to the festival. The music plays both Saturday and Sunday.
