The Treasure Island Flea returns this month to the Great Lawn, along the Avenue of the Palms in San Francisco. The Flea, for those of you who missed our last entry on the subject, takes place on the last weekend of every month, and usually revolves around some sort of unique theme or series of events that ties the whole thing together. In June, the Flea featured a retro circus as well as a beard competition. This month, from the 30th to the 31st, the Flea is back, and it’s a good time to break out your swimsuits and flip-flops because the theme for this weekend is Hawaii in July.
Art and San Francisco go together like ketchup and hotdogs. For art lovers looking for a fix, there are the obvious places like the Yerba Buena Center for the Arts and SFMoMA, and then there are the scads of galleries that are impossible to avoid (and why would you want to?) as well as the numerous festivals, parties, and celebrations that are art centered. One can never have too much of a thing this good, and so it is to our delight that this year there is a new event that will be bringing together all varieties of artistic endeavor. On Friday, July 29th, from 5:00pm until 9:00pm at the UN Plaza (at the intersection of Market and Hyde Streets), Art Night will be kicking off its first ever season.
There’s a good chance that you have never heard of the Obtainium Cup. Luckily for you, on July 16th and 17th, this can change. For the 5th straight year, the Obtainium Cup will be scuffled over in Vallejo, giving participants and spectators both the time of their lives, and challenging the age-old idiom “there is nothing new under the sun.”
Our Bay Area blog has often devoted space to the Bay Area’s wealth of food options and gourmet eateries. Whether it is a walk along Fisherman’s Wharf or a late-night bite in the Tenderloin District, San Francisco’s foodie scene is thriving, and all you need to do is go out for a meal at one of the many award-winning restaurants in the area to understand why. This Friday, the 8th of June, several of San Francisco’s top chefs are joining forces to put on a special, multimedia food event. Centering around the rich heritage of Native Americans, Chef Caesare Assad and Chef Loretta Barrett Oden will be implementing various techniques endemic to Capay Valley and Native American cooking to present guests with a one-of-a-kind culinary experience.
Brace yourself for one of the most exciting festivals/street fairs/events that summer in San Francisco has to offer: the Union Street Festival.

At 12:00 p.m. CST on March 18th, 2016, creative and silly types from all over the world will drop what they are doing and do one simple thing: dance.

Alliteration. Enjambment. Free verse. Iambic pentameter. Repetition. Metaphor. Whether these words remind you of a college English course within which you struggled, Bay Area Beat poet Ellen Ginsberg, or something or someone else, poetry is alive and well in the greater San Francisco area. Whether you had a hard time deciphering Shakespeare or you earned an MFA in Creative Writing, please know that poetry is meant to be a community-minded art! You’re welcome to attend a Diesel, A Bookstore event in Oakland, California: Poetry Flash with Literary Magazine Ambush Review on Sunday, January 25th at 3pm at 5433 College Avenue.
