Who's the fairest city of all? The answer, of course, is San Francisco. We've got hills, we've got water and we have some of the best views around. So, fully enjoy your city this week! Start off with Shecky's Girls Night Out at the Herbst Pavilion where ladies can enjoy drinks and peruse the latest fashions and products. Then get gussied up for the opening night of the San Francisco International LGBT Film Festival at the Castro Theater. This year is the festival's finest so be sure to check out one of the hundreds of films. On Friday, kick-off your weekend at Ichi Sushi Happy Hour at Swig where fine sushi and even finer cocktails mingle. After you are suitably stuffed and liquefied, head to Bottom of the Hill for the Trainwreck Riders for a little rockabilly lullaby. Dolores Park will be jamming on Saturday for the Bicycle Music Festival. Go for the 200W pedal powered stage and stay for the great music. Then ring in Pride Week at 92.7's Launch the Party at the Regency Ballroom. Find the perfect get-up for Pride at the Indie Mart where over a hundred designers will be showing off their goods. Closing things out, laugh it up with Aziz Ansari at the Punch Line Comedy Club.
