Still covered in orange and black tickertape from the Giants parade? Got a hangover from all the revelry? Don't stop believing S.F., hang on to that feeling. You can keep the party going through the weekend with these cheap local happenings. Here's our list of 10 things to do this weekend for less than a knock-off Giants cap:

Linda King & Company @ The Beat Museum (Sun.) 
Narrator wakes up hungover. Narrator starts drinking. Narrator writes something brilliant. Narrator finds someone to fuck. Narrator finds someone to fight. Love him or hate him, the late Charles Bukowski rarely strayed from this predictable pattern in most of his short stories and novels. One would think that any woman involved with Bukowski for five years off and on would want his head, at least figuratively. Linda King has it literally -- or, to be exact, a sculpture of it, one that she made. King, who's also a poet, reads her work and unveils sculptures of Bukowski and five other literary lions -- Lawrence Ferlinghetti, Robinson Jeffers, Gerald Locklin, Harold Norse, and Jack Micheline -- at Linda King & Company. Other poets reading are Jack Hirschman, as well as Neeli Cherkovski and A.D. Winans. (Free, 2 p.m.) -- Keith Bowers
