Every Thursday I thumb through articles and event announcements for something to do over the weekend, and when nothing sparks an interest, I create my own fun. Meaning to say, I pray for good weather in the city and then go for long walks across town. Seven plus miles and then ride the Muni back to my neighborhood. After stopping somewhere downtown for lunch – of course.
This weekend in and around the city we have some things going on which is cool to consider, especially those of you visiting from out of town:
Livermore Wine Country Downtown Street Fest has wine and beer tasting, outdoor dining, arts & crafts vendors, live entertainment, and a family fun zone. Free. May 6-7
Sustainable design festival – May 7, 2017: Shop for sustainably made apparel, accessories, home goods, and art at the Urban Air Market, with street food and local musicians on Patricia’s Green (at Octavia & Fell Streets). Repeats in Sept. Free.
Wine tasting in Palo Alto – May 7, 2017: Taste 100 wines from 30 wineries with hors d’oeuvres at the Grand Tasting Event at Pampas for age 21+.
Concerts in the park – May 7-8 Golden Gate Park Band plays a variety of music (classical, marches, opera, swing, and show tunes) at Spreckels Temple of Music in Golden Gate Park. Free.
- And my favorite, Off The Grid in the Presidio which I frequent nearly every week in the Spring/Summer months.
