Something For Everyone in The Bay Area

As the heat of the summer starts to pass it becomes more pleasant to sit outside and enjoy the remaining weeks of summer. There is no better way to end a season than to attend exciting events around the city. Whether it be music, art, beer, or food there is something everyone can enjoy.

Head to the Mission district for La Cocina’s San Francisco 3rd annual street food festival, taking place August 20, 2011. Here you will find an array of food carts lining the street. The festival is just as much about the entrepreneurship of the vendors as it is about the delicious food they are there to showcase. Enjoy all the food, friends, and music that come along with the festival. Don’t miss out!

For those looking for something a little less casual it can certainly be found at the Steins Collect exhibit at San Francisco’s Museum of Modern Art. Through September 6, 2011, bohemian Paris in the 20th century will be on display exhibiting Picasso, Matisse, Renoir and more avant-garde pieces. Interested in the history of the paintings? Try the SFMoMA mobile audio tour. As you walk along the exhibit you have the option to hear audio about the history and back-story of each work of art. The collection celebrates Gertrude Stein and her influence on modern art, literature and culture.

Take the art off the wall and into the skies and head just across the Bay Bridge to the Cesar Chavez Park in Berkeley Marina. Happening there is the 26th annual Kite Festival. No longer is kite flying reserved for family vacations to the beach or kids having fun in the park. You will be truly amazed at the beauty the kites bring to the sky. Check out modern displays of kite building with kites as big as houses and a tasty candy drop for kids. The best part about this long running kite hang out, is that it is free admission to all! The festival takes place July 29 and 30, 2011 and is fun for the entire family.

Finally, take in the cinematic history of San Francisco with Alfred Hitchcock’s, The Birds screening at the Mark Lounge along side a free wine tasting. The screening and wine tasting are apart of Classic Film and Wine Night and is held every Tuesday night through September 6, 2011. If you miss out this time, enjoy more classic films like The Maltese Falcon and Dirty Harry always accompanied with a glass of your favorite wine and free admission.
