After Sunday's 49ers loss crushed any chance of massive Super Bowl parties with our hometown team in the big game, San Francisco could use a collective laugh. Luckily, Sketchfest, the Super Bowl of San Francisco comedy events continues this week with appearances by Eddie Izzard, Drew Carey, Greg Proops and other comedy heavyweights. The San Francisco Fine Print Fair is back at Fort Mason and ZAP Zinfandel Festival provides a nice distraction for local oenophiles. Float on with indie rock vets Modest Mouse or investigate your artistic instincts at Go Wild with Lomography. Kenny Dope and Little Louie Vega are back together for the first time in 10 years for Masters At Work and Ghostly Meets Spectral Sound brings two electronic music labels together for one rocking party.

Costume Contest: Bring your WILD side to the party this Thursday! Best wild themed attire WINS an edition of the LOMO mystery camera to be launched the night of the event. Enjoy free beer, food, and music by DJ Carnita (Hard French) from 7pm - 10pm, see you there!
