San Francisco International Beer Festival


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.

166th Annual St. Patrick’s Day Festival and Parade

We told you about the Mardi Gras events, so now it is only reasonable that we move on to the next day of drinking and good cheer heralded across the country: St. Patrick’s Day! In many ways, St. Patrick’s day is the true harbinger of spring, which is why so many people let themselves go, dress absurdly, and turn their personal volume knobs way, way up as they meander through the streets wearing emerald green and sporting shamrocks in their top hats.
