Gigantour, the behemoth extravaganza of heavy metal founded by speed rockers Megadeth, returns from a three-year hiatus with an all-new lineup of hard-hitting legends handpicked by Megadeth frontman Dave Mustaine. Mustaine leads his own frothing band of shredders through a bludgeoning set of classics and tracks from TH1RT3EN, Megadeth's latest album and the universal password of satanic bakers. Riding shotgun and fully cocked, Lemmy and the bruisers of Motörhead crack skulls and renovate eardrums with blitzkrieg classics about playing cards, fisticuffs, and the merits of chewing ammunition. Other Megadeth-approved acts include Danish metal fiends Volbeat, who cook up molten tunes fit for a sixth grader’s exceptionally brutal science-fair volcano, and Italian goth metallurgists Lacuna Coil.

Vegetarian House’s name is slightly misleading—but only slightly. The menu is indeed vegetarian, but it’s also 100% vegan and organic. That means vegetable broth pho that swaps out tripe for tofu and soy protein. Eclectic dishes from Asia and the Middle East round out the menu, and many feature noodles made from scratch.

Quartet San Francisco is a vibrantly nontraditional ensemble, and will play two pieces that celebrate the welcome inspirations of jazz, tango, and spring, all within glorious acoustic and architectural environs. San Jose Chamber Orchestra’s venerable conductor Barbara Day Turner, known for her innovative programming, wields the baton as the bestringed foursome delivers Anica Galindo’s "Trinitas III" and Henry Mollicone’s "Fantasía Para Cuerdas." Violin co-conspirators Jeremy Cohen and Alisa Rose, viola repeat offender Keith Lawrence, and stealthy cellist Gianna Abondolo are deft crossover artists as well as Grammy nominees, having played in a multiplicity of genres and performed in strikingly diverse venues around the country.

Raised in Germany, La Lune Sucr?e founder Bettina Pope further cultivated her passion for carefully crafted baked goods while living abroad in Paris and Sussex. So when Ms. Pope moved to America, she ached for the crusty baguettes and puff-pastry quiches she had savored in European patisseries. She began gathering family recipes and seeking out apprenticeships with pastry chefs such as Olivier Grimaud of Aux Delices de Pierre in France. Now, as head chef at La Lune Sucr?e, she fills plates with her favorite French and German cafe fare, from flaky, light croissant sandwiches to crisp salads and homemade soups. Additionally, Ms. Pope enfolds European cheeses and cream sauces into crepe batter she makes from scratch and doles out fresh-baked French baguettes to picnickers and arcade-goers short a mallet for Whack-A-Mole.

Just as his first print developed in a dim darkroom, so did Majeed Iravani's love for photography. Majeed began his shot-snapping career in 1984, then founded ShotzPerfect Photography in 1990. His two-decade-spanning portfolio is populated with family portraits, wedding parties, and fine-art shots of stoic lighthouses and bridges framed by the gradient of the setting sun. During portrait sessions, Majeed captures clients in a combination of posed and natural positions, such as hugging while staring stonily into the lens.

Recently profiled by The Atlantic for its members' innovative inventions, TechShop’s supportive community of inventors, artists, technicians, and alchemists share their excitement about the next big idea in an environment limited only by their collective imagination. The 17,000-square-foot smorgasbord of inventive creativity beckons people of all skill levels to its DIY confines, where members can wield tools not found in most private workshops, slicing through steel with a plasma cutter or accessing 3-D design software to finally realize the goal of crawling inside the Internet. Hands-on classes jump-start creative juices, introducing students to vocational skills including welding, soldering, and woodworking. Neophyte inventors aged 12–17 are welcome but must be accompanied by a parent or guardian to ensure they don't break physics.
