KCBS reporter Liam Mayclem provides KPIX 5 users with a weekly weekend tip list of Bay Area entertainment, music, film and online entertainment.

MOVIE: Spencer

Kristen Stewart brings Princess Diana to life in the new movie Spencer in a stellar, layered performance Stewart shows the glamour & the grim, playing the former wife of Prince Charles during her most challenging days. A solid support cast & smart script make this a must see and a new take on the life of the worlds most beloved and most photographed women, the late Princess Diana who died tragically too young & too soon in 1997 aged just 36. Spencer is now streaming on Netflix.

It's a curtain call for Andrew Lloyd Webber's Jesus Christ Superstar. The lavish 50th anniversary production is being staged for one last weekend at the Golden Gate Theatre in San Francisco. It's been retooled, reworked for a more contemporary audience. It's the musical that helped launch composer Lloyd Webber's career and kicked off the modern musical revival.

MUSIC: ABBA - "Voyage"
It's been 40 years since Swedish supergroup ABBA released new music. The wait is over with "Voyage" 10 shiny, shimmering, catchy pop tracks on one brand, spanking new album.

FREE: Lunch at Comstock
Friday Noon - 2pm

One of my fave bars is open again and is inviting you in for a cocktail and free lunch. Comstock Saloon in San Francisco's North Beach is a throwback to the good ole saloon days, the decor takes you back but the modern crafted cocktails remind you these are current times. Jonny Raglin & team shuttered during COVID and used the time to polish up the brass & fixtures. Stop by on Fridays for a complimentary lunch menu item with your cocktail. Welcome home!

DIWALI: Celebrate & Eat
Diwali, or Deepawali is celebrated by Hindus, Jains, Sikhs, and some Buddhists around the world. It gets its name from the Sanskrit word deepavali, which means "row of clay lamps." Many people in India will light these lamps outside their homes to symbolize the inner light that protects them from spiritual darkness, in tune with a holiday that is an ode to the triumph of good over evil.

There are Diwali celebrations all around the Bay and you are invited to celebrate too by dining out at local Indian restaurants.

Here are a few of my favorites around the Bay:

Santana Row, San Jose


Dogpatch, San Francisco

Downtown San Francisco

SOMA, San Francisco

Mission, San Francisco
