Valentine's Day in San Francisco is about more than just pillow talk. The day for romantics also has a little friendly flash-mob style aggression at the annual Pillow Fight at Justin Herman Plaza. Afterward, just a few blocks away, the Naughty Yacht Cruise sets sail with Jell-O wrestling, go-go dancers and erotic entertainment. Ms. Lauryn Hill and Camp Lo return with golden-era hip-hop flavor and the Beer Olympics bring a night of social drinking games to Impala. Howlin' Rain celebrate the release of their Rick Rubin-produced album and the Fourth Annual Inner Richmond Pub Crawl provides the perfect opportunity to reacquaint with some of the West Side's finest watering holes.
