Kevin Starr on the Golden Gate Bridge @ the JCC - Weds, 2/2

I'm kind of a geek about SF history, and this sounds fun. Here's what the JCC says about it:

"In 1937, the Golden Gate Bridge rose high above the Bay Area, linking the urbanity of San Francisco with the wild headlands of Marin County. Join Kevin Starr, one of America's most celebrated historians, as he provides an intriguing account of the building of the Golden Gate Bridge. Discover the significance of it's construction and the statement the great landmark made about America's engineering prowess"

Anyone want to join me?

Hand Car Regatta in Santa Rosa - Sunday, Sept 26th

I've been dying to check out the Handcar Regatta in Santa Rosa since I heard about it last year. I'm not sure how to describe it, especially since I haven't been yet, but it seems to be a steam punk-y, costume-y, kind of event! I'll definitely be treking up north next Sunday for it, so let me know if you'd like to come along! I may even dress up...

Hardly Strictly Bluegrass - Saturday & Sunday, 10/2 & 10/3


I'm so excited that it's almost time for Hardly Strictly Bluegrass again, and it's the 10th anniversary this year!!!  I'm planning to go on Saturday and Sunday (but it's also going on Friday for those of you who are free).  Julie and I will be getting there early both days to get a sweet spot.  Feel free to come early or late, but let me know if you're coming so I can keep you updated on our location.  They haven't announced who's performing at which stages yet, which will help me decide where I want to camp out each day, but I usually pick one of the smaller stages. 

For those of you who haven't gone before, I think that this is the best music festival, and one of my absolute favorite things to do in San Francisco!  It's at Speedway, Lindley & Marx meadows in Golden Gate Park and it's absolutely free.  You can buy food there, but you can bring any food or drink (including alcohol) that you like.  I hope you'll join me...

Off The Grid @ Fort Mason - Friday, September 3rd


I'm finally going to check out the Off The Grid street food festival this Friday at Fort Mason from 5-9.  I'm feeling very inspired after the Eat Real Festival this past Sunday.  I'll head over right after work, so will probably get there around 5:30.  Let me know if you want to join me!

Eat Real Festival @ Jack London Square - Sunday, August 29th



Went to the Eat Real festival last year and it was fantastic, so I'm definitely going again this year.  It's both Saturday and Sunday, but I'm planning for Sunday.  I'd like to take the ferry there and I think that the one that leaves the Ferry Building at 11:50 arriving at Jack London Square at 12:20 seems perfect!  Who wants to join me?

Ferris Bueller's Day Off - Saturday, August 7th

It's time for another Film Night in the Park (well actually, I haven't been to any so far this summer... boo!).  I'm going to be out wine tasting all day, but I'm sure I'll be back in time for the show.  Now, I'll bet it will be freezing cold, but if we bundle up, and drink lots of wine, I'm sure we'll survive.  Who will brave the cold and join me?

Renegade Craft Fair @ Fort Mason - Sat & Sun, July 31 & Aug 1



Woo hoo... it's time for another Renegade Craft Fair! It's next Saturday and Sunday (July 31st and August 1st) from 11 to 7 at Fort Mason. I haven't decided yet which day to go yet, so your response will very likely influence my decision ;-)

SF Opera Aida Simulcast @ AT&T Park - Friday, September 24th



Okay, this is being promoted way ahead of time, but I'm passing along already anyhow. I went to this last year and it was very cool, although by the end I was shouting "Die Already!" and went home about one aria away from the finale ;-) Needless to say Operas are a bit long, but that's what is so great about seeing it for free at the ballpark.

This year they're doing Aida, and I'm hoping that I'll recognize many of the songs. Now even though it's free you do have to RSVP, which I've already done for 4 people... one of those spots is yours if you want it (just let me know).

Fantasic Mr. Fox @ The Independent - Monday, April 5th



The Independent is showing Fantastic Mr. Fox on their Monday free movie night coming up on April 5th. I never got around to see this in the theater, but I'm a big Wes Anderson fan, so I'd really love to see it... and it's FREE (unless you decide to get a cocktail... which is even better)! Who's in?
