Fall is officially under way – we had a great harvest moon last night.
On Saturday in Golden Gate Park, the SF Bike Coalition hosts their annual Tour de Fat, a celebration of all things bicycle. Live music, $5 Fat Tire beer, bike tricks, a bike parade – lots of fun for big and little kids alike.
On Sunday, Alice 97.3 welcomes the hoard to Sharon Meadow for their Now & Zen Festival, featuring top artists Sara Bareilles, the Plain White TÃs, Natasha Bedingfield, Five for Fighting and Ryan Star. Pull up a patch of grass and relax, or stop by the eZENtials Pavilion for some pampering.
The de Young Museum is back with a second Impressionist show that opens this Saturday. Van Gogh, Gauguin, CÎzanne, and Beyond: Post-Impressionist Masterpieces from the Musee d’Orsay features paintings from late and post-Impressionist periods like Monet and Renoir, as well as works of the early modern masters like van Gogh, Toulouse-Lautrec, and Gauguin. We’re lucky – the de Young is the only museum in the country to host this exhibition.
On Saturday, the Presidio is hosting a celebration in the recently renovated Public Health Service District, a.k.a. the area inside the 15th Avenue gate near Lake Street. They’re hosting open houses for the new Presidio Landmark apartments and the historic homes overlooking Mt. Lake Park. Plus activities for the kids and food trucks galore. They could use the foot traffic – only a few of the 154 Landmark apartments are occupied.
We got word this week that Fresh & Easy Neighborhood market will be moving into the outer Richmond in early 2011. It was touch and go for awhile due to our faltering economy, but they’re back on track. They’ll be cozying up with CVS Pharmacy on the corner of 32nd and Clement.
Have a great weekend everyone!
