Summertime is all about BBQs, beach parties and hang time outside, but San Francisco's clubs are still going off with lots of great parties. The clubs circuit is showing no sign of slowing this week with Diplo and Benzi back in action and Odd Future's Syd behind the decks at Low End Theory. Bonobo will be bringing some summertime chill to Mighty, Digitalism, Jack Beats & Gesaffelstein are in the house at Mezzanine and the Fillmore District welcomes a new outdoor bass party to the neighborhood, Dub Fillmore. For those still seeking a little time outside, San Francisco pays tribute the legendary Grateful Dead guitarist during the Jerry Garcia Day party and the Stern Grove Festival continues with soulful New Orleans crooner Aaron Neville.

Today's Deal: 50% off CitySolve Scavenger Hunt & Urban Race on Sat Aug 20th. There is a $300 prize and a chance to go to compete in Las Vegas to win $5,000.
