While it is only Wednesday, I am already daydreaming about the weekend.
Through Friday, you can hop on board and take a look at a beautiful Mexican Navy ship parked at Pier 27 – free.
Saturday is the big Kenny Chesney country music show at AT&T Park. While you have to lay down some cash to get into the Kenny Chesney show, there is a free performance behind AT&T Park at China Basin (cross over Lefty O’Doul bridge on 3rd Street) from 10am until 12pm sponsored by my favorite (only?) Country music station in the Bay Area, The Wolf (95.7 FM). The number for the sound complaint hotline for the concert this weekend is 415/850-7293 (if you were around for the Rolling Stones concert a few years ago at AT&T Park, you recognize the need to have someone to call in order to ask that someone turn the volume down a bit).
Yerba Buena Gardens Festival offers some children’s programming on Saturday and some dance on Saturday and Sunday – visit their web site www.ybgf.org for more information.
Sunday Streets in The Mission – followed with a San Francisco Symphony Performance
Be sure not to miss out on the last Mission Sunday Streets event of the summer, this Sunday July 19th!
In just a few days the event will be heading back to the Mission for the last time this year, so whether you missed last month’s event or just couldn’t get enough make sure to join neighbors there this Sunday from 10AM to 2PM! What better place to ditch the car and get some exercise than the lively, culture-rich Mission district? It’s the same route as last time with many of your favorite attractions– such as the amazing Aztec Dancers, a roller rink with free lessons and skates, free dance and yoga classes, and much more! See the purple section below for highlights of the next event and go to our website at www.sundaystreetssf.com for the full list of programming and route map.
After you’ve had all the fun you can handle at Sunday Streets, pack a picnic basket and head over to Dolores Park for a relaxing afternoon of musical favorites with the San Francisco Symphony beginning at 2pm, including excerpts from Tchaikovsky’s Swan Lake and Romeo and Juliet followed by Beethoven’s incomparable Symphony No. 5. If you need to drive to the event you can park your car at the Mission Bartlett public parking garage at 21st and Bartlett (between Mission and Valencia Streets), which has a Sunday Special of $2/ per hour.

Also on Sunday is AIDS Walk in Golden Gate Park – learn more at www.AIDSwalk.net
Save the Date: Sunday Streets on the Great Highway August 9th and September 6th
That’s right: Sunday Streets is headed to the coast for their last two events of the summer where they will be closing off both sides of the Great Highway from Sloat Blvd all the way to Golden Gate Park where they continue the route along MLK and JFK Drives! This is a Sunday Streets first and folks can’t wait to have some fun in the sun right next to San Francisco’s beautiful Ocean Beach. See you out there — mark your calendars now!
Have a nice weekend!
