The Fouladi Projects/Courtesy

1. GIRLS star Jemima Kirke will show a collection of her paintings at the Fouladi Projects in San Francisco, opening March 21. Her work has been described as “imbued with real pathos.” Learn more here.

2. March 22 is National Corn Dog Day, the celebration of a classic American culinary staple. Corn dogs, a delicacy primarily associated with Americana such as state fairs and mindless overconsumption, will be available for purchase from 11 different food trucks for San Francisco’s festivities. (There will also be coverage of all the day’s March Madness NCAA games). The event will take place from 11 a.m. to 5 p.m. at the SoMa Streat Food Park in San Francisco. Admission is free.

3. Attend LATE NITE ART: Equinox — an art workshop that integrates a three-course gourmet meal, wine and art.

4. The Cal men’s basketball team continues its magical run through the storied NIT Tournament on March 24 at 8 p.m. at Haas Pavilion against the scrappy Arkansas Razorbacks. It’ll be a rematch from their epic showdown in November, and a win will catapult the Bears to eternal glory and fame, as well as the Elite Eight of the NIT.

5. The Pacific Film Archive is screening “One Flew Over the Cuckoo’s Nest” on March 22 at 5:30 p.m. The movie, starring Jack Nicholson, is a classic, and it won a slew of Academy Awards in 1975, including Best Picture. Tickets are $5.50 for UC Berkeley students and $9.50 for general admission.
