Memorial Day Weekend in San Francisco

What better way to spend the long holiday weekend – and the official kick off to summer – than with a trip to San Francisco. San Francisco is home to one of the country’s largest and longest running Memorial Day traditions. Every year on Memorial Day starting at 10:30 AM, members of the military, family and friends gather at the National Cemetery in Presidio to honor those who have died for our country. Open to the public, the service last until 1:30 PM. While at the National Cemetery, be sure to check out some of the other attractions, including two World War II era boats that now serve as floating museums. A trip to Fort Point National Historic Site is also worth the trip. Read the rest »

Giant’s Ready for Opening Day 2017

The San Francisco Giants are always a playoff contender – but can they be a title contender in 2017? Last season they made it to the playoffs, but bowed out early after being defeated by the soon-to-be world champions Chicago Cubs. And although many see 2017 as a rebuilding year of sorts for the Giants, with 2018 being the year they make a run for the pennant, you can’t count the club out completely. Read the rest »


San Francisco International Beer Festival

BEER.

Although it has been a staple of various civilizations for hundreds (may we even say thousands?) of years, only recently has the world seen an explosion of interest in beer. This interest crosses boundaries of cultures, classes, genders, religions, and almost every other divide created by humans to segregate ourselves from one another.  Simply put, beer unites us in a common love.  What better place, therefore, than San Francisco, one of the most notoriously love-filled cities in the world, to celebrate beer?  This April 8th, from 7:00pm until 10:00pm, the Fort Mason Center’s Festival Pavilion will be the location of the San Francisco International Beer Festival, a can’t-miss event that will draw on breweries from around the world to offer you a one-of-a-kind beer tasting experience.

60th Annual San Francisco International Film Festival

Springtime is when cities across America begin to roll out their red carpets, dim the lights, and begin the celebration of film in the form of festivals that can stretch from an evening to an entire week.  Usually, these festivals present movies that have not yet received distribution (which means that you can’t rent them on Amazon, can’t see them at the local AMC, and can’t buy them), movies that might become the year’s Next Big Hit, movies that you might literally never have the chance to see again.
