San Francisco is in the thick of its notoriously foggy summer, even more reason to get out and heat up the dance floor. Womp Island 5 brings the party to Treasure Island this weekend with three stages and DJs spinning everything from trance to dubstep. Fringe celebrates its three-year anniversary with an indie music dance party and the Phono Del Sol Music and Food Festival celebrates local bands, brews and outdoor bowling. Brave swimmers hit the chilly waters of the San Francisco Bay for the Alcatraz Challenge Aquathlon & Swim and The Dark Knight returns to the big screen with a movie marathon.
